I just was on a chat with an “investor.” She was telling me that I could “make millions” with her platform.
First of all, any such claims are suspect. I said how could I make a million dollars from a $100 investment. She said it would only take months.
Would you believe that?
So I asked her how much she has made. She said $2.7 million!!! Didn’t ask for proof, but just said if she made any withdrawals…answer…Yes.
So I asked her what her goal was…answer…$10 million!!!
Wow!!! Big Dreamer!
Then the question was has it made any difference in her lifestyle? She said no.
I then asked what would be the reason for investing. She responded by how much I could make.
Seems like circular thinking without any reasoning as to WHY!!!
Like I said, one reason is to change your LIFESTYLE. Another is to create security…like having a backup plan.
There can be many other reasons too, but is it reasonable to just invest for investment sake…just to accumulate…hoard…money.
There is a story where a man had his “barns” full. He said he will tear them down and build bigger ones, but he was told that his life would be “required of him” that very night and his wealth would be for naught.
The way this world works is the transfer of good and services. That means you receive and you give…and there is always enough…actually more than enough!
You can keep some of it for the upgrades to your life, but if you strangle the moving of “money” it will ruin you…losing it all, because you are violating the laws that keep life alive!
The real reason for investing is to improve your life and teach others to do the same.
How much is necessary to do that? Actually we need very little to live comfortably. Does one need all the big houses and cars and parties?
Not Really…but I am not putting down anyone who has those things. I am just saying that there are better things to with it that are much more satisfying. Those things just prop up something missing inside…most of the time.
To get to the real reason why you want wealth is addressed in my Coaching…The 3 Steps to Finding Your Dream.
