5 Cliches That Will Keep You From Making Money
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- When you interview 1,200 of the world's wealthiest people over the past 30 years -- and you're a self-made multi-millionaire yourself -- you know all too well the conventional wisdom on wealth doesn't hold up under serious scrutiny.
That's the deal with Steve Siebold, author of How Rich People Think and a serious student of what makes people rich -- and what doesn't, including those so-called "money phrases" or cliches.
"Be careful. Some of these seemingly harmless phrases about money can actually interfere with the wealth-building process," Siebold says.
"Most of us learn about money from people who don't understand it, and who are well-intentioned people of influence who propagate their ignorance of what wealth means and how it's acquired," Siebold says. "These well-known money cliches that most people use are ingrained in our memory early on, and are rarely if ever questioned. Is it any wonder that most of us are broke?"
