“Every Man is The Architect of His Own Fortune” Sallust (86-34 BC), a Roman historian
It’s amazing to me where some of the basic concepts of Financial Planning and financial success come from – and how old the ideas are.
This quote is from before Jesus was born and illustrates one of the key aspects of a successful financial life – recognizing that we are each the architect of our own fortune. Once you do that, you accept responsibility for all of your fortunes and misfortunes in life. And once you take responsibility, the road to success becomes immensely easier.
