Invest In Yourself

Invest In Yourself

It amazes me that people give so much money to stockbrokers and investment Advisors. These people get all the fun of playing with your money, yet take none of the risk. All you get as an investor is the worry, and if you are lucky, a dividend cheque. Sure, some people make a killing pork bellies, but most investors wind up eating Rolaids for breakfast.

Money should be used to get all you can out of life. I don’t believe that you can do that by turning your money and investment decisions over to someone else. Many of us unhappy with the way the world is, yet we give our money to those people running it in the same old way. If you have an idea, something you believe would make the world a better place than put your money in it. Forget the investors, invest in yourself.

It still seems to be the prevailing sentiment among the business community, despite thousands of examples of companies that have grown too fast, too soon – then failed. When I first desk in a one bedroom apartment. I was overjoyed when my business grew to over 30 employees in just three years. It was great for my ego, I found, but bad for my soul.

Nobody Cares If You Fail

Nobody Cares If You Fail

I used think that if I failed at something, I would be left walking around with a big, red F stamped my forehead. Everybody would be whispering behind my back, and I had be the laughing stock of the city.

But the first time a business of mine failed, I found most people didn’t really care. Even my family stopped talking about it after a relatively short period of time. This taught me that most people are so wrapped up in their own lives, they really don’t have time to worry about anyone else trial and tribulations. There’s no room left on their emotional disk for much less than what they are struggling with each day.

Too Much Money Is Bad

Too Much Money Is Bad

In a capitalist society this really sounds dumb. But I truly believe it. Remember one thing: anyone can do anything if they have a lot of money. The trick is to what you want you want with as little money as possible. The people who need a lot of money to do things are the weak people, not the strong people. The strong ones are those who do what they want on a little bit of money. And in a weak economy, it is always the strong that survive.

If you had a million dollars to start your own business it would be a snap, and it would also be bad. Why?

You Can’t Buy Someone Else’s Magic

You Can’t Buy Someone Else’s Magic

Money will not solve your problems. It seems that it will, but ask anyone who has made a lot of cash, quick. There’s always some motivational talk show person with a monetary cyclone to offer that promises to make millionaires of us all. They dangle dollars as bit. An inspiring author, a stimulation seminar, or a self help guru to guide you along is usually part of the deal, too. We tell ourselves this person has figured out the mysteries of success, and if we read a book or attend a seminar, some of it will rub off, and all of our problems will suddenly disappear.

Money Is No Solution All

Money Is No Solution All

Many of us still believe that money will solve all of our problems. We say to ourselves: ‘If I only had the money, I’d start my own business; I’d go back to school and become an art teacher; or be like Mother Teresa, and spend the rest of my life doing something meaningful.’

Train Yourself For Chaos

Train Yourself For Chaos

When I began starting businesses, I used to try to get everything to run smoothly. That’s what I was trained to do in business school. Their educational mission was to teach us to get everyone and everything to work perfectly in business. Nice concept on paper.

In real life, nothing ever runs perfectly. Once I was in the real business world, something or someone was always going wrong. People would screw up. Materials wouldn’t be delivered on time. Customers wouldn’t pay their bills. Nothing seemed to work smoothly – the way I thought they would if I worked at it hard enough. I spent all my time putting out fires and frustrated myself to no end. Eventually, I quit trying to train myself to handle things perfectly, because perfection so rarely happened.
