“Freaks are the much-needed escape from the humdrum. They are poetry.” -Albert Perry
If you think about your money and you are young, you are NOT normal. You are indeed a FREAK. But in a very good way! Embrace it and know that your freakishness will pay off big time in the future. Today your friends and family will ask WHY you’re doing it. But soon, they will ask HOW you did it.

After all, the younger you start, the greater you will benefit from it in the future. Because of this, it is highly essential that you don’t feel discouraged if you are playing a game that doesn’t seem to be popular in your age bracket.
As you embark on your journey towards financial independence, realize that you are signing up for a life that is against societal norms. The first few years will feel like a sacrifice, but know that the remaining years will be well worth it. In handling the first few years, my advice would be to confidently embrace it. People are going to question and joke around with you about your craziness. Be confident and know that your strategy will work and that these same people who were questioning you will one day be envying you.
Wealth doesn’t care if you are smart, stupid, fat, skinny, tall, short, white, black, male or female….it doesn’t matter if you are “better” or “worse” than someone else. Wealth is simply a function of knowledge, action, and time….The principles of wealth are well within the grasp of every human that has the capacity to learn.
Live like no one else now, so you can live like no one else later.
Understand that accumulating a lifetime of wealth in a short period of time involves making personal decisions in major areas of your life that are different than the norm. It involves working harder and smarter than the average [student or] employee, and it involves making different career decisions than the Average Joe….In short, it involves a change of perspective that may be sharply at odds from that of your family, friends, and [peers].

It is not normal to achieve financial independence in your 20’s. So don’t be normal. Be unique. Be a FREAK!
