In a nutshell, spend less money than you earn. Don't waste money on things that you don't a) need, or b) make you happy.

Save the money that's left over. Invest wisely. Buy a house, but not too much house.

That's the secret to being rich, retiring early, and living more simply. Pretty simple, if you ask me.
