从贫穷到富有，第一步是最困难的。其中的关键，在于 你必须了解，所有财富和物质的获得，都必须先建立清晰且 明确的目标；当目标的追求变成一种执着时，你就会发现， 你所有的行动都会带领你朝着这个目标迈进。
The first step from poverty to riches is the most difficult.The key is to realize that all the riches and all the the material goods that you acquire through your own efforts begin with your having a clear,concise picture of what you seek.
