53. I remember people buying cars and houses they really could not
afford - on the assumption that the appearance of success would lead to greater success.

80s seminars I went to were all about self esteem and how you can do whatever you really want to do if you really want to - there were some good ideas, and I'm all for self-esteem, but not to the point that it is dependent only on monetary success. It was interesting how financial success was practically the only thing people "really wanted" and would get if they only just wanted it enough. And this was extreme success, not just making a living.

Interesting how it's still there, even though "everything changed after 911." :hangover: :shrug:
