I think it would be interesting to interview 100 of the most wealthy people in the world (who did not inherit their fortunes or won the lottery, etc.), and to examine what they did and how they became successful. I wonder how many of them operated under the AFL philosophy. And maybe not even just "wealthy" in terms of cash, but in terms of achievements in their chosen activities. I have a hunch that most of them did it the common sense/old fashioned way: blood, sweat, and tears. But it would be interesting to find out whether that's true.
For example, I happen to know that an objective study of pianist at the top conservatories revealed that the top performers practiced 2 to 3 times longer and more often than the less stellar performers. Believe me, at least in music performance, "abundance" doesn't come easily!
Anyone know if such an objective study is published? (And not by those biased, sensationalist authors who are out to con a few bucks out of the rest of us!)
