Your financial status feels like a reflection of your self-worth. When you're falling behind on your bills, and you can't spend any money on your friends, and you don't even think you can afford to leave the house most days, it starts to wreak havoc on your self-esteem.
“Go For Broke” was the motto of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, an Army unit comprised of Japanese Americans from Hawai'i and the mainland United States. The motto was derived from a gambler's slang used in Hawai'i to “go for broke,” which meant that the player was risking it all in one effort to win big.
Confidence is great, but confidence with nothing to back it up is purely a facade you set up for yourself to make you feel better. Being broke teaches that you won't be of value to the world unless you create that value yourself — once you build it, you treasure it so much more because of all the work you put in.
