five-billionaires-who-live-below-their-means: Personal Finance News from Yahoo! Finance
When we think of being frugal we often think of poor miserly individuals and the picture is not something we aspire to be. This is a misconception. Frugalness at it's heart is WASTE NOT, WANT NOT. In doing this we are free to acheive more that we would have imagined.
In The Trenches has a chapter called Millionaires Among Us that lists the qualities that I have observed about the millionaires that have been in my own life. I think you will find some surprises.
The article above shows another five who have achieved success that most of us cannot imagine and have done so by LIVING UNDER THEIR MEANS. (see related blog posts on this subject)
I am now reading three books at once. One of them is The Millionaire Next Door. And, guess what? Yes, the majority all follow the same pattern.
So, if you are looking for some role models on your journey to Frugal Living don't look to those who seem to have nothing, look to those who are now enjoying the fruits of their success.
