“One of the most important things about getting wealthy is you harness natural forces in your favor. And you let nature do most of the work. You let the market do most of the work. You let the prevailing trends do most of the work. And if you are, if you’re fighting tooth and nail to get something to happen, you’re probably not harmonizing with nature.” – Perry Marshall
