- “When you are exposed to certain things, it has an impact on your desire to want it and your desire to want to go after it, and can sometimes be that internal fuel to get you there. “ – Cedric Nash
- “Material things are never the source of happiness. And so that principle is important and it carried through in my investing. Why? Because I never expected unreasonable returns.” – Cedric Nash
- “That keeps me from trying to be lured by investing in things like crypto or these different things that are promising. You have to double and triple and quadruple your returns; it’s just not sustainable. It’s not consistent, and nine times out of 10, it’s not real. Those mindset things have kept me in check and kept me patient while I steadily build upon my wealth.” – Cedric Nash
- “Your end game is that point in your life where you can choose not to work anymore; where you can start dedicating your gifts and your talents to the things that bring you the most happiness and joy, not necessarily for money.” – Cedric Nash
- “Without a vision, a people perished. It’s very important that we have a clear vision for what we’re doing with our money. And if we don’t have a clear vision, there’s a good chance that we’re going to end up nowhere.” – Cedric Nash
- The name of the game is you have to put extreme effort in it, live extremely frugally so that you can maximize, maximize that capital, and invest as much as you can intensely and consistently over time, and you’ll get there.” – Cedric Nash
- “If you don’t have the right mindset and value set, you can’t make millionaire money moves consistent long enough to have an impact.” – Cedric Nash
- “What we should do is keep our self-esteem in check and make sure that our net worth is the definition of our real self-worth as opposed to what people think about us or how they judge us.” – Cedric Nash
