There are so many misconceptions, myths, and beliefs about money.
There are misconceptions about how money works, where it comes from, or how you get more of it. Many people don’t know how you control or multiply money.
The media teaches so many wrong beliefs about money. And so, I feel obligated to share more financial knowledge with the world.
I’ve been fascinated with the concept of money since I was 4 or 5 years old. I wanted to know how it works and how I could get more of it. I was just intrigued by money, and I wanted to learn more.
One of the greatest deceptions is that money is scarce.
We’re often told that money is not an abundant resource. And I get that because I was in that position. I didn’t have any money in my bank account.
I didn’t know where to get my next income. I only knew that I could get money by working for a boss.
When I started my business, nothing happened. I did all the admin of registering my business and printing business cards.
I thought people would automatically come to me, like they always did while I was working a 9-to-5 job.
Well, it doesn’t work like that. And I had to learn how it works. In that period, I had this scarcity mindset.
I had this mindset that time was just infinite. There was always enough time, just not enough money.
Then I learned from a couple of wealthy people I look up to. They had it the other way around.
If you want to change something about your life, you need to change your belief system first.
Their belief system was that money is infinite, and time is scarce. Trillions of dollars are traded in the foreign exchange market every day. And we can tap into that.
Banks also print money constantly.
But time is limited. And we cannot get back lost time. We can get the money that we spend back. There are ways for you to even get more of it. But you cannot buy back lost time.
If you have enough money, it can buy you free time.
So, you have time to work AND free time for you to do whatever you want.
Most people are looking for more free time. And they think they get that by working for 40 years. Then they get their free time when they are retired at 65.
What I learned from rich people is that you can get that free time while you’re still young.
It doesn’t happen by penny-pinching. It’s about creating more value.
That’s one of the principles I teach in the book ‘The 12 Principles Of Money’ which you can download for free here.
Skills are a way to create value. I have learned so many things. And I’m stacking up skills right now. Experience is a much better teacher than just reading a textbook.
I’ve been to university twice, and I’ve skipped both times because I didn’t like it. It was too theoretical, and I was not really applying my knowledge.
The most fun parts were when we had to get away from the textbooks. We had all kinds of events and workshops. And that was cool because we got to test our skills and see what we were made of.
Most people that go into business learn many more skills than they did in 4 years of university.
That’s one aspect that school fails to teach us. It’s those hands-on experiences that we get in real life.
Schools mainly fail to teach the concept of money. And this is a VERY important concept to learn.
This is one of the principles I teach in my eBook, ‘The 12 principles of money,’ which you can download right here below.
I’ve learned from so many people and hands-on experience in my own business. I have all these experiences that I compiled in one book. And you can get the book for FREE. It’s the most valuable thing I’ve created so far.
