It is entirely doable. After reading and keeping your mind on the right path towards your money education, you will begin to see your friends make major financial blunders, the kind you used to make, and because they have not read and learned what you have, you will not be able to talk them out of their problems. You will hear them say, "why don't they tax Donald Trump more, so that I won't have to pay so much for gas," and "those people are lucky because they were born rich." You will think to yourself that Donald Trump is rich because he geared his life for it. He studied Real Estate while his friends were having a Keg party, and attacking him will never put sense into the heads of those who can't manage their finances. You will then say, most "rich" people work hard and live a disciplined life, that his how they stay rich, and your friends won't understand or want to understand.
