The world as we know it is changing steadily – a ‘new normal’ is in effect. We are wearing masks to buy milk, we are seeing our investments decreasing over time and the future looks bleak. Half of Americans are out of work, police vs. the people, civil wars are erupting all over the country with folks aiming for long term reforms. Social media has become a double-edged sword where what you say on twitter can be used against you.
People are still not learning the most important and basic tools to bypass this new shift in consciousness. If it was an economic planet before where everything was running on the dollar bill then what will it be when the dollar becomes devalued and worthless? What will cities look like in 15 years when a good portion run back to the burbs for safety and security? What will logistics and supply chain look like when little to nothing is manufactured in the U.S.A, but global trade wars continue? What does the new entrepreneur look like?
I recently started watching an old man’s YouTube channel. He is a ‘retired’ financial advisor and now teaching people how to invest smarter in the stock market. In one particular video he said that he doesn’t know why as a financial advisor, though one of the top 3 most successful financial advisor in the country, his main objective was to get more assets and money on his books. He goes on to state that he never sat down and read books about the future that would help his clients navigate better long term growth. He basically created packaged portfolios that were based on age and financial position. These portfolios were managed by people that ‘off in the wind’ These same people recommended what they thought would make them the most money. Directing people to technology just before the biggest dot.com bubble. Without knowing if the recommended company or indices of companies actually made any money. That is why now, on his channel he preaches the fact that education and knowledge is POWER in any market. If you have a good grasp on reality and know where the people are headed, then you can make better decisions with your money and life.
Well, why is that important? Because for some reason we are still too invested in someone else, something else, and somewhere else. This is one of the reasons I shut down all social media. Pulling back on the ill-informed people. I suggest you do the same and get to the basics and draft a plan that you can execute daily.
The new entrepreneur isn’t striking it rich. The new entrepreneur is growing incrementally wealthy in mind, body, spirit and wealth daily. That is what they forgot to tell you in 3-easy steps.
The long road isn’t the fancy shortcut – and you must be dedicated to walk the long road. I wouldn’t have it any other way. If this old man made his money on the backs of selling portfolios to uneducated folks then what does that tell you. Fuck the seminars, you don’t need it to get to where you want to be. Keep developing and don’t be afraid to change course and go into other aspects of life.
What does your life look like in 6 months, 1 year, 5 years and 10 years and how does the world look around you at those same time periods?
More to come – in the meantime, educate yourself.
