Never abandon your sense of judgment!

Every now and then something comes up that sounds too good to be true. And we all fall for this. Yes, I do believe in miracles and luck and magic, but more often than not when something is too good to be true it is exactly that!

When someone comes selling you a story that sounds unbelievable then have some salt on hand. Never abandon your sense of judgment, especially when it comes to people.

When someone comes with an investment opportunity where you are going to double or triple your money in a year, for example, then try some eye drops and check the fine print again. But, leaving the paperwork aside, when it comes to investing, the biggest move we will ever make is in another person. We invest in people, not in business plans or paperwork. So, when it comes to truly investing, always look to the omens and follow your instincts. If you have a uncomfortable feeling about someone, then, in my experience, you always land up with a headache.

Everything that is in important in life involves people, the rest is just details.

So, listen to your heart, and once again, let me emphasize: never ever abandon your sense of judgment!
