Poor? Crappy relationships? Racist or facist? Bitter?All have the same cause - Ignorance. Ignorance is not stupidity, it is merely lack of information but let us begin with why you sukkel financially:
It’s simple. Rich people know stuff that you don’t thus apply stuff that you don’t.
So you have heard the whole ‘knowledge is power’ thing right?
This romantic concept sounds good in a kind of philosophical way but reeks of exclusive intellectualism?
Surely you realize that varsity and school are each a source of knowledge but neither is the exclusive source of knowledge.
Thanks to the internet you can self-educate with articles, videos, forums and all manner of community based information treasure chests.
You poverty is 110% related to your knowledge. Some would argue that inner drive and pioneering tenacity are the key factors in success but what use are a strong engine and a power steering without a good map?
Consider your mind a box.
In that box is everything you know.
All the experiences of your past, good information, bad information, rubbish you watch on TV (Yeah soapy fans, I speak unto thee) – all of it is in that box.
When you need to make a decision, your first course of action is to reach into that box and use what is in it to choose your next move.
The reason you are poor is because you have crap in that box.
As you read this, you are reaching into that box to justify your paradigms and defend your quality of life but if you realize even 1% of what I am telling you, your entire life would revolve around getting the right stuff into that box. You would carry water for mentors, honour wise people so that they may feel comfortable to share wisdom with you and become obsessed with the practical know-how in pursuing your dreams.
What if I told you that having the right stuff in your box can GARUNTEE a great marriage and healthy relationships? Relationship management is a science that has tons of information freely available online…
What if I told you that financial prosperity is matter of solving problems efficiently and that the rarity of those problems determines the worth of the solution?
Would a light go on in your head?
Or would you just go “interesting” and continue as you were.
It takes four years on average to change your life into something completely different… Are you worth that investment to yourself or is it too much effort.
Remember, it is insanity to complain about things that you have the power to change.
