The Absurdly Easy Way to Increase Your Net Worth.
Thinking about Success: The Absurdly Easy Way to Increase Your Net Worth.
“Man has a single basic choice: to think or not, and that is the gauge of his virtue. Moral perfection is an unbreached rationality-not the degree of your intelligence, but the full and relentless use of your mind, not the extent of your knowledge, but the acceptance of reason as an absolute.” -Ayn Rand
Before we get into it, I want to thank Ms. Rand whole-heartedly for this quote. Take some time to read it again and really think about what she is saying. Keep in mind, nothing is as simple as it seems at first glance.
Setting the stage for success
I think everyone would agree with me that society is deteriorating, degrading, devolving; no doubt about that. But have you every stopped to think about why?
Could it be that the reality created for you by the politicians, media, teachers, doctors, experts etc. is not true?
People, to a great degree, follow the rules and do what they are told. So, why is it that our society is deteriorating? Shouldn’t it be getting better? That was the promise made by these cretons I mentioned before.
Legendary investor, Jim Rogers, says that when everybody is in love with something, you should hate it.
I thought about this over a rare cigar given to me by a club member, and the answer I came up with is to take what we are told to do, and do the opposite. Now, I don’t mean to brag, but as soon as I internalized this, my net worth increased over 300% my first year. And its been increasing ever since.
If tripling your net worth is what a little thinking can get you, what happens when you do a lot of thinking?
I suppose I will find out. I plan on doing a lot more thinking this year. I moved to a cabin in the quiet, remote, Appalachians with my books and a ton of cigars. Ill be sure to let you know.
Now, the hardest part
Could it be that what keeps you stuck in the rat-race is the fact that you are running on auto-pilot? You never stop to think about anything! You wake up, go to work, come home, watch tv, sleep. Then you wake up and do it all over again. Too exhausted and distracted to use your mind for anything outside of your meager existence. That is why its called a rat-race. Because your existence is as meager as a rats.
Altering one thing WILL change your life.
Thinking About Success
Substitute watching tv. with: going out on your porch and smoking a stogie. Just sit and meditate. Reflect on your life. It will take some time for your mind to detoxify from all that garbage the t.v. puts in it. But soon enough you will be able to shake off the atrophy and start thinking again. I promise you will be better off for it. (Click here for more information about “television programming”)
