Financial independence quotes from 5 inspiring people

Financial independence quotes

I have gathered wise knowledge from 5 inspiring people about financial independence. 
I love financial independence quotes because they really motivate and make sure I’m on the right track.

I would suggest you examine the quotes if you do not agree with the statement. Then you can expand your understanding.


It’s time to get inspired 🙂

Number 1

Jim Rohn

Jim Rohn is one of my favorites. He was an American entrepreneur and motivational speaker. I have a picture of him hanging by my desk to be reminded of his messages.

His talks were packed with knowledge of life and he has taught me a lot. 


Best financial independence quotes:

Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.

"It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go."

If you are not financially independent by the time you are forty or fifty, it doesn’t mean that you are living in the wrong country or at the wrong time. It simply means that you have the wrong plan.

"The arrival of winter finds us in one of two categories: Either we are prepared or we are unprepared."

Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.

You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.

Number 2

Robert Kiyosaki

Robert Kiyosaki is the author of the best seller “Rich Dad Poor Dad”. He is an entrepreneur, educator, and investor, especially in real estate.

If you don’t know his philosophy and messages, I would strongly recommend that you read his book.

Best financial independence quotes:

"If you want to be financially-free, you need to become a different person than you are today and let go of whatever has held you back in the past."

Financial struggle is often the direct result of people working all their lives for someone else.

"Financial freedom is freedom from fear."

The philosophy of the rich and the poor is this: the rich invest their money and spend what is left. The poor spend their money and invest what is left.

The biggest risk a person can take is to do nothing.

You don’t achieve success by “taking it easy” or “working on it later.” You achieve it thru persistence and hard work.

Number 3

Brian Tracy

Brian Tracy is a best-selling author and motivational speaker. 

He has been extremely active in his career and helped countless people and companies for greater success.

His messages are easy to understand and really puts life into perspective.


Best financial independence quotes:

"There are no limits on what you can achieve with your life, except the limits you accept in your mind."

Successful people are simply those with successful habits.

Your ability to discipline yourself to set clear goals, and then to work toward them every day, will do more to guarantee your success than any other single factor.

Accept that you are where you are and what you are because of your own choices and decisions.

Financial security and independence are like a three-legged stool resting on savings, insurance and investments.

Your most vauluable asset can be your willingness to persist longer than anyone else.

"You become what you think about most of the time."

Bad habits are easy to form, but hard to live with. Good habits are hard to form, but easy to live with.

Number 4

Tony Robbins

Tony Robbins is a famous American author and motivational speaker. He has written several books about financial freedom and money.

He is also an entrepreneur and owns several companies.

Best financial independence quotes:

No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn’t trying.

"Its not about the goal. Its about growing to become the person that can accomplish that goal."

Your life is controlled by what you focus on. That’s why you need to focus on where you want to go, not on what you fear. When you next find yourself in a state of uncertainty, resist your fear. Shift your focus toward where you want to go and your actions will take you in that direction.

The only real security in life comes from knowing that every single day you are improving yourself in some way.

"If you keep a clear vision for your future, it will pull you like a magnet through your toughest times."

Number 5

Warren Buffets

One of the world’s richest person on earth. Warren Buffets is a very successful American investor.

Best financial independence quotes:

Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing.

The investor of today does not profit from yesterday’s growth.

The business schools reward difficult complex behavior more than simple behavior, but simple behavior is more effective.

"We simply attempt to be fearful when others are greedy and to be greedy only when others are fearful."

I bought a company in the mid-’90s called Dexter Shoe and paid $400 million for it. And it went to zero. And I gave about $400 million worth of Berkshire stock, which is probably now worth $400 billion. But I’ve made lots of dumb decisions. That’s part of the game.

If you aren’t thinking about owning a stock for 10 years, don’t even think about owning it for 10 minutes.


That’s it. I hope you were inspired 🙂
