“You can live like a king on not much money if you choose your countries correctly”

“Like attracts like. If you want to attract a top 10 woman/man into your life, you’d better be a top 10 man/woman.”

“You have to control you environment. And sometimes this might mean cutting friends out of your life, because like attracts like.”
