Norman Vincent Peale Quote – Empty Heads Hold Us Back

Norman Vincent Peale Quote - Empty Heads Hold Us Back

“Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that.”

-Norman Vincent Peale

While it may feel like our empty pockets are holding us back, that’s not typically the case. My brother has a funny saying when we’re at the Apple Store, he says “just ask” because the worst anyone can say is no. It’s gotten me so many things cheaper, and sometimes even for free. My point is, you can’t allow an empty pocket to govern what you do.

If you don’t have the money to start your next venture, or do what you want to do, think of another solution, and I guarantee you’ll find a way to get it cheaper or at the very least easier than the original plan. It just takes a little passion for what you’re trying to accomplish, some extra brain power, and lack of money will not hold you back.
