Build superreserves

Most people go through life with little or no reserves, living in a cycle of depleting their coffers and replenishing only what is necessary to survive. They never get ahead because they are too busy trying not to fall behind.

Winners do the opposite. Winners believe you can build superreserves of anything: money, power, relationships, health, credit, opportunities, knowledge. Winners amass resources aggressively, faster than they spend; winners incessantly add to their coffers, even when an average person would say “that’s enough.” Then, no matter what monkey wrench life throws at them, or what project they want to accomplish, winners are always well-stocked and ready to act.

You need superreserves to succeed; the more you have, the more you are at a strategic advantage. For this reason, on the topic of superreserves, enough is never enough.
