How To Become Wealthy RIGHT NOW

Posted in Success, Uncategorized by ebenpagan on January 3, 2009

In our modern culture and society, we’re making a mistake that is costing us… well… everything.

In the past, wealth was about things like land, gold, food, and money.

Today, wealth is about education, enjoyment of life, quality of time and relationships with friends, cultural experience, personal development, fulfillment, contribution… and is COMPLETELY intangible and unmeasurable (in the traditional sense).

But the bizarre and almost mystical thing about these new forms of wealth – that makes them COMPLETELY different from monetary or “physical” wealth – is this:

When you give these new forms of wealth away, you still have them.

Think about that for a minute.

Let me say it again:

When you give them away, you STILL HAVE THEM.

You can give them away all day long, and not lose anything.

But that’s just the beginning…

The next question is: “How do we GET MORE ‘New Wealth’ – and truly become wealthy?”

The answer is so simple, and so counter-intuitive that almost every single person misses it almost completely.

The answer is to GIVE these new forms of wealth to as many others as possible.

Not only do you not LOSE these new forms of wealth when you give them away, you actually get more of them by giving them away.

This happens in 2 ways:

  1. When you give New Wealth away, you get AS you give. You also build the capacity within yourself to give even more. And ultimately, you experience or FEEL even more AS you give them away.
  2. When you give New Wealth away, you help others develop the capacity to give New Wealth, and they give some of their New Wealth to YOU.

For example, when you teach another human being how to do something, you learn it better. That person will then go off and use what they’ve learned from you, develop their own “style” or approach, blaze their own trail, then come back and teach you a new distinction that will help you go to the next level on your own path.

When you love another person pro-actively, you build the capacity to love in yourself. You create more love to give. As they experience and receive love, they develop their own capacity to love others – and they give love to you spontaneously.

When you contribute to another person, to a group, or to the world… you participate in the evolution of our culture, our species, and our planet. As the entire culture evolves, we all evolve. As our species evolves, we all evolve. As our planet evolves, we all evolve. You gain. The people you love gain. Everyone gains.

Most of the significant problems that we face as individual people, collectively as a species, and as a planet, come down to each of living in an old paradigm of “getting” and of “selfishness”… mistakenly believing that resources and wealth are scarce. We consume them without regard for the impact that this consumption is having on our health and our planet. We turn a blind eye to the impact that we’re having individually.

We’re literally living in the past, when the most valuable resources were things like food, land, and posessions.

That time is gone. A new time is here.

It’s here NOW.

The people who are on the “cutting edge” of evolution, education, contribution, health, relationships, etc. don’t care if you drive a fancy car, wear a fancy watch, or wear brand-name clothes. In fact, they’re suspicious if you DO “consume conspicuously.”

Living a life to get more material goods, show off so others will give you approval, own more stuff, etc. is a waste.

Living life to contribute more education, growth experiences, friendship, love, and evolution to others and to the planet is where it’s at.

In the final analysis, you have an opportunity to do something that most of the other people who have lived before us did not have the awareness or opportunity to do.

You have the opportunity to become wealthy RIGHT NOW. In this very instant. Immediately.

All you have to do is start giving your New Wealth away with consciousness and intention.

Here are a few action steps for you:

  1. Teach something to another person in a way that helps them grow on their path.
  2. Give someone an experience that will help them evolve.
  3. Introduce two people that could help each other – without expectation.
  4. Love another person unconditionally.
  5. Contribute to a group or cause that is working to change the world.

The single most powerful business and marketing lesson I’ve learned is something that I call “Move The Free Line.” It involves giving away a massive amount of value to potential customers – for free. This results in them trusting you, telling others, and getting a “sample” experience that helps them make the decision to buy from you and your company.

It’s just the beginning.

In the long-run, we will all become incredibly wealthy when we learn how to give Modern Wealth away consciously and consistently as a WAY OF LIFE.

Have a fantastic year, and do something to make yourself and the people around you wealthy TODAY.

    You are so right. This is the blurry image of the future that is coming more into focus every day.

    The fact that I see this truth actually occurring every day and in every corner is the hope I hold for the future in a world where we have so many things… nukes, global warming, terrorism, etc…. that could take us out.

    Yet this dawning truth is a way forward for us all, and it’s happening.

    I also think it’s worth noting that you, Eben Pagan, are on the cutting edge of this revolution, and not just with the “moving the free line.”

    You’ve taught me so many things about business and life… and every time I get those opportunities to return the favor I get that full-blown Labrador-retriever-wagging-it’s-tail feeling of joy.

    And the funny truth is that, through sometimes difficult-to-follow paths of causality, it has a way of swinging back around and hitting you in the wallet.

    Keep leading, my friend. You are making a huge difference in this world with your example.

    Very interesting blog post and I strongly agree with everything you’ve mentioned in this blog post, but in my opinion you’ve got to find the perfect balance between the New and the Old Wealth.

    Why?

    Only think about it, you can be the richest person in the world, own the most beautiful villa on the coast of Mediterranean Sea and you can still be poor inside; no friends, no family, no good emotions, no love… And that’s why I think that you should focus on these two types of wealth ;-)

  3. Keith deBolt said, on January 3, 2009 at 3:37 pm

    This is a profound way of looking at the gifts we have and the abundance that is ALREADY ours…

    And it is no secret that in order to retain something of value, real value, you must give it away.

    You are such a progressive thinker, Eben, and an example to all.
    I truly do love you and the light you bring to so many!

    Hi Eban

    Thank you for sharing. I have actually been giving knowledge away for many years now and you are correct it comes back in some really beautiful ways.

    To continue in this vain, I would like to give away an ebook called The Science of Getting Rich in Plain English. It is the 1910 classic written in modern language and ha a foreword by me. Any of your people who would like a copy send an email to croz1@westnet.com.au and put SOGRIPE in the subject.

    Sincere thanks for all your wisdom. I hope one day you will tap in to some of mine.

    Happy New Year

    Abundance to All

    Hey eben, thanks again for the inspiring words and new perspective. I always have been taught that what we give is what we receive and if we look at this older cliche with your perspective on moving the free line, its my opinion that what we give as far as modern wealth may be returned to us in many more ways than we would expect.

    For example, one may give their expertise or knowledge without a fee and in return may not receive money but friendships that are worth more than any price.

  6. Croz said, on January 3, 2009 at 3:47 pm

    That’s why I believe Eban is talking about a New Way of Wealth. It’s a new world with new values. Providing value in a noisy world is the only way to cut through all of the short sited snake oil pushers and empty promises.

    Now more than ever I understand why we must provide results in advance. Coming from an abundance mindset you provide extreme value and the word spreads like wildfire.

    I remember hearing when I was first starting out in sales. You make 1 person happy “after the transaction” they tell 3 people, piss one off and they tell 10. You have to work 3 times harder to get any referral business under that “old model.”

    By pushing the free line it seems to me you provide amazing value up front and they tell people right away. Now just follow through on the promise of your product and it’s a huge win win!

    There are still “old school” wealth principles I’m sure that we continue to abide by however I really dig where Eben is coming from. Thanks Eben.

    P.S. I was watching the wakeupproductive bonus DVD’s today and watching the business owners in the hot seat REALLY woke me up in my own marketing efforts.

    Thank you!

    Some of the wealthiest people I’ve known, didn’t really have much in the way of monetary wealth. Yet they were rich beyond measure.

    “Most of the significant problems that we face as individual people, collectively as a species, and as a planet, come down to each of living in an old paradigm of ‘getting’ and of ‘selfishness’… mistakenly believing that resources and wealth are scarce.”

    I can’t tell you how much I’ve been thinking about this the last several months. I believe it’s the key to my success and for many people’s success in anything… wealth, relationships, etc.

    When it’s no longer about ‘getting’ anything… money, validation from the opposite sex, recognition, power, whatever… you’re entire being changes I think. I have a ways to go with this, but I think this is the path. And thanks Eben for shining a light on it!

    Thanks Eben, what a great post!
    You are absolutely right. Jim Rohn said (as well as many others) that you will have whatever you want in this lifetime if you can help enough people get what they want. It stems from an abundance mentality which is the only real way to live… ;o)

    May you be blessed richly in 2009.

    Eben,

    This is beautiful. There is a new path of wealth consciousness that is not about deceiving, tricking or faking… but about complete and total transparency, honesty and abundance. When you live in this space and make business decisions from this place, you are trusted by your friends, family, partners and customers because they can tell that you trust yourself.

    This kind of authentic trust to the core cannot be bought or sold nor can it be faked. When you tap into it, you only want to share it with others. And as you said, the more you share it with others, the bigger it grows and gives back to you… which makes you only want to share it more and more!

    Eben, you have taught me to build from this place of trust within myself and to freely and openly share it with others. It’s overwhelming how powerful this is and to see how all the relationships in my life have changed as a result.

    Please continue to guide us into this new dawn of wealth consciousness. Thank you for creating a space where we can openly explore and discuss the evolution of business and opportunity as it is transforming “right now”.

  12. crystalsquest said, on January 3, 2009 at 4:40 pm

    How to respond to that except to say “I wholeheartedly agree, and am grateful to be so well off”. That, and “what economic crisis?” – do you think this global economic stuff is a way to make us reevaluate what’s important (true, and lasting) in terms of wealth?

    Here’s hoping 2009 sees more focus on REAL wealth creation!

    Eben –

    I think this post was right on! It is funny I am reading this because I shot a video last night and I talked about this topic in my own words and with my own style ; D … how it seems that a lot of the young, coming up, making big money for the first time “gurus” think the power is in the bling…and all it does is gives the newbie entering this industry a false sense of what this industry is about!

    I had to personally stop looking at others and start focusing on what I wanted out of this industry.

    I even see how those caught up in the ‘status life’ they even forget that this is still about giving back and giving back massively. I see a lot of the ‘status’ people only focused on increasing their relationships with the high profile markters and they have stopped giving back…it’s a shame.

    I loved this!

    The fact that you have even 1 person saying that their life was changed because of you, Eben, being in their life is testimony of a life being well lived.

    You’re going to look back on your life if you continue the path you’re currently on and really love what you’ve done.

    “3. Love another person unconditionally.”

    Makes me think of the importance of seeing another human as a human. Not their money. Not their friends. Not their influence.

    Waking up – starting at the base level of reality and waking up more and more from the dream we of separation our species lives in.

    Instead starting at:
    “This human across from me, Eben, is a member of the Animalia Kingdom… like me. Part of the Mammalia class…like me. Part of the Primate order…like me. Part of the Family Hominidae…like me. Part of my Hominini tribe…like me. Like me – part of the Homo Sapien species.”

    IN A VERY, VERY REAL SENSE – we are related. In fact, as far as science is concerned – in the domain of Eukaryota – we are related in a real sense to plants, animals, protista, and fungi.

    When we can start relating to fungi (simply a part of our planet) – relating to another human becomes a lot smoother.

    And the glue of BELIEF seems to be this interesting little glitch that can bond us unconditionally — or break us conditionally.

    This is just a perspective of mine – but you Eben, helped me to have it in myself.

  16. World Wide Weller said, on January 3, 2009 at 5:50 pm

    Unfortunately, it took a humbling experience for me to realize that, and this industry has been very compassionate and awakening. . . I wrote about it in my book “Home Based Business Revolution”. . . . what an awesome post…I’m printing this one out!

  17. Jesse said, on January 3, 2009 at 6:16 pm

    Thanks for this post, Eben…here are my thoughts:

    One of the coolest things about giving New Wealth freely and generously (on top of all the other benefits) is that so few people are doing it…so it’s RARE and it easily STANDS OUT.

    I believe we’re learning this concept of “move the free line” at the perfect time.

    The average customer out there doesn’t expect to get any real value for free. They’re used to hype…trickery…flashiness…being “nickelled and dimed”…etc. They’ve become cynical.

    That means when someone like us suddenly comes along and offers enormous REAL value…for free…with no strings attached…people are easily surprised and impressed.

    As a result, they not only evolve into loyal customers…but they often turn into evangelists and market our products and services for us, too. Pretty cool!

    Thanks for the post…

    Eben, I knew you were a great marketer and businessman, but I never really knew you’re such a spiritual person.

    One of the first pieces of advice I got when I started my network marketing company was “offer as much free value to others as you possibly can”. It is still a work in progress, as years of capitalistic mind-numbing consumerism have taught me I need to look out for myself first (pre-pay for my services!).

    One thing you didnt mentioned is how a mindset of Gratitude is helpful in guiding your actions.

    Great post!

    Eben, Great post. My wife and I are newbie’s to this ionline nformation marketing environment. With so much information everywhere new people to this movement are looking for someone who they can trust. Your posts are very inspirational and have answered several of our questions. We think you are a great source of information to those of us who are new to online/social marketing.

    Eben, I love when you go all hippie on us. :)

    Been preaching much the same sermon over on Copyblogger. Giving hugely leads to amazing things happening. Generosity is the new millionaire’s secret.

    (I happen to think it was also an important piece of the old millionaire’s secret. Nothing makes you feel richer than giving money away, and nothing attracts wealth like feelng rich.)

    Oh this was just what I needed….

    Frank Kern actually directed me this way from twitter…..and he’s a picky guy when it comes to what he backs up.

    I love the concept already and I’m glad you wrote this and said it the way you did.

  24. Matthew L. said, on January 3, 2009 at 8:19 pm

    That’s very deep and 100% true, Eben. This mentality requires an elevated state of consciousness and the psychic payoffs are immeasurable. To give and provide massive value in this fashion only allows us to grow more. Most people do come from a mindset of scarcity and limited resources rather than abundance. Generously giving daily is where the real rewards and wealth are at.

    As soon as I adopted the “what I want for myself, I want for everyone” attitude, my life and finances changed. If you’re not already familiar Eben, I think you would enjoy James Arthur Ray events.

  25. Baylan said, on January 3, 2009 at 8:40 pm

    Eben, you are so right. I’ve found that giving to people can be most profound in the smallest ways — a smile to someone who seems invisible, a touch on the arm for someone alone, asking “How are you?” and actually stopping to listen to the answer. There is so little connection these days, that when you do such things, you are giving the gift of your presence. This opens the space for the other person to step in and be seen/heard, even if just for a moment. It can change their day, and it can change their life. We are sharing the internal wealth that we are.

    When we are financially wealthy, I believe it is a responsibility to give back in ways that make a difference. And giving is like priming the pump — the more you give, the more space there is to receive the flow.

    If we seek to find commonalities, we will find more of ourselves in each person.

    Thanks for sharing and helping set the pace for 2009!

    Blessings and peace,
    Baylan Megino

    Give and you shall receive.

    This has been the secret of many of the wealthiest people for years.

    It is the simple law of attraction.

    Once you start to open yourself up to this concept
    you will find that things will generally flow in your favor.

    It is a positive action that can only benefit those on the receiving end
    which in turn will only benefit the giver.

    It is a philosophy that should be adopted more in this world today.

    Who knows? Perhaps recent events in the financial world have made people realise it’s not all about taking. There has to be some giving.

    The more giving the better.

  27. Funke said, on January 3, 2009 at 8:59 pm

    Well said Eben. This is a concept that has been around since the beginning of time, however, in a society that has put more emphasis on the value of our material items, rather than the value of who we are authentically, we as humans have been made unaware and unconscious of the POWER and abundance of wealth we ALL have within us and have been developing in our formless selves since birth, awaiting to be brought into consciousness in order to serve others.

    It is unfortunate that most of us feel we must accumulate great financial wealth first in order to share from our overflow. It is true money does help and people can definitely make use of it, although, in our society today people need more resources and solutions so they have the means to earn their own money and then provide more resources and solutions to the next person.

    Our accumulation of wealth whether “new” or “old” is all based on our relationships with our selves and others. As online entrepreneurs, we know more about our customers in another country and the people we Twit with on Twitter than we do our next door neighbors. So as we move the free line, online, let’s find ways to share the wealth of our experiences, education and love of life off line with others and do so liberally and unconditionally, without being attached to any outcomes.

    Thanks,
    Funke

    It’s funny Eben,

    After running into you at Whole Foods tonight, talking to you, and then finding this post, it all adds up.

    This post is what it’s all about…seeing the humanity in each other, coming from a place of service, giving away the intangibles that are so abundant, lead to fulfillment and abundance beyond measure.

    I see it in you both from your videos and the way you communicate with people, and from the presentation you did for your birthday with the water charity, as well as in person tonight…bottom line, you are real, and you get it…that’s the big reason why you have so much abundance in your life.

    I know that it will grow even bigger and deeper for you, because your are serving people and have a huge heart, you can’t fake that. It’s the way of the Universe, and your tapped into it.

    Thanks so much for sharing, and I look forward to seeing you continue to grow and evolve.

    The work I talked to you about tonight that I’m creating is all about this mixed in with Entertainment and Comedy…but the messages are definitely on the same track.

    Take care, and I would definitely love to connect again so I can see how I can support you on your journey…I’m here to serve.

    All the best,

    Eben,

    Having participated in your course with Wyatt Woodsmall, I can say that you walk your talk.

    What you are eluding to is what I call the “three mindsets.” And, I’ll take this opportunity to “teach” this concept right here in order to share the wealth of this knowledge.

    Think of a pyramid. At the lowest level, the base, is the Base Mindset (B-mindset). This takes up the greatest space as is refers not just to the base of the triangle but our base needs which are physcial and emotional. The B-mindset needs are typically reactive and automatic. (If you refer to the triune brain, it is reptilian and limbic.)

    Next level up is the Conscious Mindset (C-Mindset). This is the conscious mindset that lets us consciously become aware of our base needs so we can respond not just react. Logic prevails, however it still is a self-absorbed awareness. )If you refer to the triune brain, it is neocortex.)

    The top level, the small pyramind at the top of pyramid, is the Omni Mindset (O-Mindset). The Omni Mindset is about an “all encompassing” awareness. The Omni Mindset is in forms of contribution and participation to others. It is for the great good for all involved.

    2009 is the Year of the Omni Mindset. Thanks for getting the ball rolling, Eben.

    Appreciate the post Pagan. I agree with your Twitter assessment, some of your best thinking on wealth.

    I see indicators of this shift into the new consciousness everywhere I look. Have always agreed with Henry David Thoreau “Wealth is the ability to fully experience life.” I believe your outline of what wealth is today exactly describes fully experiencing life. I find the contrast between the old and the new very helpful in getting this distinction.

    As far as giving away, I had a wonderful breakthrough on a practical level when I adopted Bob Scheinfeld’s frame:

    Money is simply an expression of appreciation.

    From that paradigm, it seems nonsensical to think “I’ve appreciated way too much today.” Where previously one consistently thought “I’ve spent way too much money today.”

    Bills as expressions of appreciation become
    rent/mortgage = appreciation for shelter
    grocery bill = appreciation for sustenance, energy, heatlh
    electrical bill = appreciation for warmth, cooling, internet

    All the way down to the level of appreciation for connection, safety, life, etc.

    Until one moment you finally get, you can’t run out of appreciation. The more appreciation you show, the more things there are to appreciate. In other words, give it away and revel in the expansion, the increase, the flow.

    Beginning with one’s vocabulary is a handy, practical starting point for conscious evolution. It can be implemented immediately in this moment no matter who or where you are, and it naturally branches into an awareness of being at cause.

    Another seed for the garden.

    Geez, I just love this radical way of being, don’t you?

  34. Clay Franklin said, on January 3, 2009 at 11:51 pm

    Thank you for the reminder of what is important in life and to be sure to share it.

    The timing is prefect for this reminder as I enter a new era of personal success and wealth.

    It does not cost anything to be happy or to give love.

    If I had $10 million bucks in my pocket right now, I hope I would still be here reading this post and writing this comment because I am experiencing the new wealth right now from you.

    Have a great year and hope to meet you in person in 2009.

    It is certainly a word that gets tossed around – reciprocity but it is all so true. As someone new to the world of online marketing I am amazed at the generosity of so many established IMs and certainly plan to do the same for my growing community of people seeking to live life to the fullest through learning.

    AMEN Brother! Damn I wish I had read this before leaving my comment on the “Social Media Post” because just reading this now has my mind working at 160mph.

    As you said, everything I learn from you I “tweak” it to make it my own and I hopefully am giving back to you (as in your example).

    The rest of this Post is to Everyone But Eben,

    Guys I am not saying this to “Kiss a**” or anything… But I sincerely hope everyone here appreciates being able to have access like this to EBEN. Without a doubt, he is the most “brilliant” guy I have ever met and have studied (and I have studied em’ all). I have a lot of his stuff, have attended 1 of his live events and believe me when I tell you that I review his stuff at “minimum” of 10 times a week.

    Anything that you read, watch or listen to him tell you, make sure that you have a clear n’ open mind before you consume the intelligence he so eloquently speaks. And really try to realize how “deep” and how sophisticated what he is saying is because I can promise you this, other than someone I met through EBEN, which is a man called Wyatt Woodsmall there is no one else out there that will actually make you a smarter person, not just in life but in general.

    I sound and feel like Kiss A**… Yes I Know But I truly mean it when I say… Review the same training a few times over and over (every chance you get) and I promise you that you will soon see that you missed so much the 1st few times, its not even funny. And to think you “get it” the 1st time around is only a disservice to yourself.

    That is probably some of the best advice I can give anyone on this blog.

    Once again, Thank You Eben for a deep and “mind-tuning” post. I can always count on you to ruin the next movie I watch (just playing). The only time I don’t work is when I watch a movie with my Gorgeous Girlfriend. And I can’t help drifting off into a deep thought about business (shhh don’t tell my girl though).

    But you always give me something to think about it for days or even weeks to come…

    I got here via Kern’s twitter… it’s a great post, really in-line with a lot of thoughts I’ve been thinking on today and yesterday.

    It is sort of filling in the blanks for something I reviewed in my notes earlier today that Opher said at the event in LA last month. He said “When you become a brand of knowledge, money will flow to you.” I think your post is laying the foundation of *how* exactly to become that brand of knowledge.

    I’m really enjoying this blog Eben, please continue… it’s great!

  42. Kristof said, on January 4, 2009 at 4:18 am

    Hi Eben,

    What you say rings so true to me deep down in my belly brain. Thanks for sharing.

    What specially stands out for me at the moment is the part about education. It’s so important that we share the knowledge! For me, my life changed when I started reading books about self-help. And It was so helpful having access to your advice and those of other great thinkers (um, thanks, by the way). The easy access to great advice plays a major key role here!

    What I was wondering about: How do we pull others to the level that they can get access to all the great wisdom that’s out in the internet… when they don’t have an internet connection? How do we help them, to move from their position?

    I feel a deep respect to people in the third world that run schools. They do the same as you, Eben, and many of your pupils do here in the Western society. They do that just starting from another position.

    Let’s share specially with the teachers. The teachers all around the world. People like you, the school teachers, the elders teaching in a lower-developed society, the father telling his son about an experience he made, …

    Kristof

    The universe is indeed a friendly place! I am finally experiencing what contribution is all about. You talked about it in your program, but the real learning comes from putting it into action! The real mind shifter was for me becoming more positive and contribute with my own unigue talents. People that contribute have a special energy or chakra, it’s like being on fire.. It is so critical to contribute to the world and your advice is a great summary and how to manual. Keep up the good work!

    I love this! I saw a bumper sticker a long, long time ago that said “Do what you love, and the money will follow.” I’ve been so busy trying to survive, I never really understood that. I love to give – my things, my money, my time, my love, my friendship. I find lately that the more I give, the more I get, and that it’s stuff that’s you can’t buy with money. You have a new subscriber, dude!

    Eben, thanks for the insight. Its true, we seem to have been headed in the wrong direction. When I consider your points on NEW Wealth, it seems to me we all have so much to share. And, as you point out, not only will we never run short of supply, but by giving to others we actually increase our supply.

    Awesome revelation!

  52. polisny said, on January 4, 2009 at 7:37 am

    I disagree with your post and your philosophy on modern wealth. The text opened : “”Today, wealth is about education, enjoyment of life, quality of time and relationships with friends, cultural experience, personal development, fulfillment, contribution… and is COMPLETELY intangible and unmeasurable (in the traditional sense).””

    Today, wealth is a word just as it was in the past. As a concept, it is just as it was in the past. Today, just like a hundred years ago or longer if you like, a user of the word can or could speak about philosophy or any subject of their choosing to signify wealth or abundance. Language is not only subject to literalisms but is just as easily open to figurative, idiosyncratic or metaphoric usages. Wealth is just as easily significant of abundance as is exuberance, affluence, or richness. Of course, when we think of each of these words, they collocate different images or ideas to the mind and, are seen generally in one or so ways only. However, wealth has never necessarily been about money only. Yes, one might think of money when they hear the word wealth but, depending on the context in which the word wealth occurs, one might just as easily think about knowledge. And, while I say this for the present, I do not underestimate philosophers nor critical thinkers of the past in their hearing the word nor contextually applying it to language. So, to finish this point up, I agree that wealth CAN be about these subjects but, not that IT IS about these subjects. Many people, in hearing wealth, will think only about money. This is all. Not about education, not about personal knowledge. Just money. And, if others heard the word and were asked to think about its various senses, these people would just as easily say, wealth can mean that there is merely a lot of something. And hence, wealth is still just its basic senses; a lot of something, especially money. However, it [can] be used in conjunction with other subjects as well. But, this is nothing new. Especially to language and especially to users of language. He is rich with experience. He has a wealth of experience. He has a lot of experience. He is wise with experience. He has an abundance of experience. His experiences are exuberant. He has an affluence of experiences. etc.

    Also, you mentioned the word “intangible” to modify ‘new’ wealth. However, some of the subjects you chose to illustrate in combining them with the quantification “a lot of” (or wealth) are perfectly tangible. Look at, say… cultural experiences. A cultural experience might be a new language. It might be an understanding of a different place or one’s own place in a new, perhaps historical way. If, par se, it is a new language–then how could any of us even attempt “intangible” as an adjective to modify this noun? One indeed does physically manifest and possess language in items called books. If that is not a reification of cultural experience, I do not know what is. In poems and art and varieties thereof. Take education, for example. If not for touchable, material items, where could a person possibly attain ‘education’? They might learn it all by ear but, if it is seen (say, in books or on walls or in papers) then it is generally tangible.

    My point is, though, not really about the intangibility of these subjects nor the semantics of wealth but, instead about giving these subjects away as though we only grow or learn or achieve or acquire on account of this giving them away.
    The quote was: “”When you give these new forms of wealth away, you still have them.””

    Friendship, before I get into it in other subjects of wealth as you mentioned them, is not necessarily a form of wealth. Lets take for example being friends with a criminal but not knowing that the criminal is intending on taking advantage of your amicable attitude and there destroying that intrinsic trust. That would be a great example of friendship that only abuses and hurts. And, it happens. Or, lets say that there are two friends that are in a friendship and that friend A forwards 1,000, 000 euros to friend B with the net of friendship as a safety guard. Well, perhaps this friendship is true in and of itself but after the “giving of friendship” it becomes in this way disproportionate and unable to be redeemed to its “original state”. In this example, if say friend B could never give back the money and friend A needed the money to pay for a new heart, well… we all can see where this is going. Friendship would not have been but a fatality. So, to generalize by saying that “new wealth” is itself different from “old wealth” in that we still posses what we give away is false. It is not because you give knowledge away that you necessarily gain more nor that because you keep it that you necessarily don’t or cant continue gaining it. It is not because you “give away friendship” that you necessarily get back friendships or more of any relation first given and, it is not because you don’t give away friendship (the quality of being shy?) that you dont get more friends or friendships. So, I fail to see how “new wealth” is any different from “old wealth”.

    There are countless contexts that more than demonstrate giving something away and not getting it back tangibly let alone intangibly. I somewhat developed friendships above. Friendships at their most profound occurrences are most often emergent and at least experiential crystalisations of a whole wealth of discrete parts. If one gives away friendships, it does not follow that they will get anything back. To give away in this sense can just as easily mean “to not be friends with any more”, (maybe because you wish that someone else be friends with) or, it can mean “to wish to be friendly with other people” and, there again, giving away friendship would not at all necessitate one’s getting back friendliness or much more profound and rare, friendship.
    Of course, friendship is itself merely an example to point out that getting wealth can just as easily happen only after one is selfish. Look at Hetty Green. Since we are talking about old wealth, (money, in your distinction) lets talk about her. Hetty Green was probably one of the most selfish people who has ever been known to the world of money, let alone its avenue: wall street. She was born in the late 19th century (and died in the finished past–that is, not anywhere near the present). She was so selfish with money that when her child broke his leg, she spent so long searching for free assistance instead of paying for a doctor, that her son later had to have his leg amputated. She did not have but a single set of rags she wore in place of buying new clothes because new clothes would have cost money. She was known as the wicked witch of wallstreet because she was so notoriously greedy. So, what happened to all her money? Simple, it became more and more and more abundant. SHE BECAME RICHER! (this is a fact, linguistically, logically, and historically).
    Now, lets look at what happened to her money? Did it all just *poof* disappear? Did she lose it in some abyss of her greed? No, after her daughter was given the money by inheritance, (an amount far, far into billions–in today’s money) her daughter built a hospital with it. So, from all that greed and selfishness, came something light-bulb like and there shining. A bright demonstration of her choice not to share and not to give.
    I think there are numerous examples we could all provide under which either giving or not giving turns into something apparently positive or negative for any given length of time.

    from my post to RTFA:

    This is a really thoughtful meditation on the value of things, and while I’m convinced by the presentation of this idea, I think it is also supported by the dollar-amount cost of items like education and health care. Year over year, education and health care (which I’ll call “real value”) outpace inflation, as measured by the cost of a “standard basket.” On this basis, real value becomes increasingly unattainable by those earning the minimum wage.

    This is a strange post. It is part self-help, part satire, part meme-evolution, and part social-capital organization. And yet I can’t criticize it without offering a meme of my own that will help others save about fifty bucks a year, if not more:

    If you shave, keep your razor immersed in a jar of mineral oil (just the blade). The life of your razor blades, those old Wallet gougers, will increase astronomically. The reason it works is because blades wear out because of corrosion, NOT wear. Go figure, because the collection of companies who make blades also produce shaving cream, and the first three ingredients in shaving cream are ALL CORROSIVE ACIDS. CAPITAL LETTERS! Its a conspiracy, I say!

    For additional info on the concept, just follow this link:

    Other’n that, this is an awesome post. Humans have a funny belief that possession or control over memes is possible, whereas the opposite is true, and the free exchange of ideas only begets more memes for everyone. Awesome.

  63. nathankievman said, on January 4, 2009 at 5:14 pm

    Eben,

    Thanks for this thoughtful post. Giving truly from the heart is a very satisfying experience if one can get to that point in their life… most give, with a subtle hope or expactation to get back.

    Let’s say you wanted to give something away as a Christmas gift to your people, free and truly from your heart to help them. Because of your position and the way internet marketers are positioned, it’s hard for me to believe that you won’t try to turn it into a continuity product or some sort of sale at some point, so though I would be grateful for your gift, I would be skeptical of your motives.

    This recently happened to me with a top internet marketer (not you) that I won’t mention… he offered a free Christmas gift, full of value and very helpful, but then a week later tried to turn it into a continuity program. I feel this defeats the real purpose of sharing a gift, and in fact makes me feel like this was never a gift, rather it was a marketing approach packaged as a gift.

    Though this has nothing to do with you per se, it has everything to do with the industry in which you operate.

    So I have a couple questions:

    1. Do you currently offer a charitable program to those in need with your products/programs?

    2. How do you approach giving with your business and personally, do you seperate the two?

    3. What is the most important thing someone can do when giving?

    Thanks for this thoughtful article Eben.

    All the Best,

    Nathan Kievman

    Wow — what a magnificent post! I couldn’t agree more. In the spiritual realm, this is called reaping and sowing — give and it shall be given unto you. This is, in fact, the only time God told us to test him. In Malachi, he said (regarding tithing/giving) “Prove me now and see if I don’t open up the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing so great you won’t be able to contain it.” Pretty powerful stuff.

    In the physical, I think this is illustrated well by bodies of water that “hold on” to their content, as opposed to a river that flows. The lack of “giving” of flowing, causes stagnation and death. The flow, on the other hand, keeps life renewed and keeps the body of water refilled.

    We get ourselves into trouble when we have a poverty consciousness, or think that there isn’t enough to go around.

    Thanks for such a timely message.

    Great post – so glad that Jeff Walker tweeted about it!

    I couldn’t agree more – we’re sharing our knowledge in a new course with coaching because we want to pass on what we know. Even though it’s a personal finance course it starts with money and why we want it.

    I believe money is only interesting because of what we can do for others with it and 10% of the profits of the course will be going charity and we’re also having a draw for a free course (there’s still time to enter).

    I would say even with money if you give it away more of it will come back to you in some form. People think that they can’t give to charity because they don’t have enough themselves but if all of us gave a little that would still be a lot!

    I sometimes think,
    ‘If I help others, they will be happy! and they also help me another day.’

    In 2009, my plan to become and make the world wealthy is give a small present to my friends, family and anyone….

    Some surprise presents make someone really happy.
    Even though they are not expensive like chocolate or handmade post cards.

    How about give a present to your lovers?

  73. James Lavers said, on January 6, 2009 at 4:44 am

    PROFOUND EBEN!! Thankyou.

    The more I think about this kind of stuff, the more I think we have a responsibility to MOVE THE WEALTH LINE…

    I think of this as the ‘internal’ thermostat that I think most of us have, that says “when I get x,y,z…then I’ll give a,b,c…”

    The reason I say this – is because in so many cases, we hear this (truly brilliant) thinking coming from those we might perceive as having ‘already made it’, or from established ‘thought leaders’…

    …I truly believe we need to become our own thought leaders and start moving our ‘internal’ welath line towards IMPLEMENTING these distinctions earlier.

    So, I guess the Wealth Line is our own beliefs (certainties) and values (importance) around a whole bunch of stuff: Giving & Growing…

    It’s why I dig your stuff Eben – you’re really challenging us to question our beliefs and values around this stuff. Thanks Man.

    James.

    P.S. Not just MORE WORDS…there are a number of good charitable causes I’ve been ‘meaning’ to support for a while and have done NOTHING about…I’m moving the WEALTH LINE…I’m going to give them some cash and set it up for reccurring support NOW.

  74. Alex said, on January 7, 2009 at 9:52 am

    yeah the moving the freeline thing makes a lot of sense. Like in the past some businesses probably tried it but giving away some of their LESS valuable material. The stuff that’s pretty good content, but not really good enough that they could justify charging money for it. Or maybe just on the borderline. What that resulted in was
    1. Most prospects/leads probably didn’t care enough to even check out the LESS valuable material, so it didn’t accomplish getting their attention.
    2. They assumed that all of the content was less valuable, and of this lesser quality, so that company’s products are probably not worth buying.

    With the new philosophy, you give away something EXTREMELY valuable, causing a flock of prospective clients to come check it out, and they end up assuming that if this material is so great ALL of the content produced by that company must be awesome as well. It creates a good reputation.

    Reminds me of a movie from a while back called “pay it forward”. This idea has the power to change the world.

    If you have not already done so you should have a read of a little book called the Go Giver. Google it, it is easy to find.

    Three things are almost tangible in my effort to give away everything I know:

    Consensus: New directions to develop, together with who accept my view as useful
    Impulse: New, unforseeable, reasons to pursue an aim hidden to my previous view
    Energy: Renewed propulsive means to reach a new level in the domains closer to my heart

    Here’s some value that I would like to contribute…

    I created a set of questions that could accelerated your learning and growth. I used Gregory Bateson’s “Learning Levels” as a framework for these questions (Of course, they can be expanded further). And here they are:

    1) What happened specifically? What else happened specifically?
    2) What did I learn? What else did I learn?
    3) What did I learn about myself? What else did I learn about myself?
    4) How did I learn? How else did I learn?
    5) How else could have I learned? How would I change the way I learned?

This is also the highest form of ‘attraction markdeting’ there is. If you sow this principal of giving genuine New Wealth into your business, you will reap MORE than you sow. Material wealth will be yours, too. Giving you even more to give away.

    I was at first thinking that “inner wealth” would be a better name since there is nothing “new” about “new wealth.” But then I thought about how more and more of us are becoming aware [of new wealth's value] as the basic needs of entire societies are being met. As this happens, SOCIETY AS A WHOLE is realizing the “value” of new wealth and, as far as I know, this has never happened before except on smaller scale groups of people. As you say, new wealth increases when it is shared. As we wake up collectively there’s going to be a hell of an economy.

    The last few centuries have seen a massive explosion of external wealth in the world. It is my prayer that the next decade will give birth to a massive inner wealth explosion. The advice in your post is the new wealth equivalent of a gold mine containing exponential “value”. The singularity is near!

    PS: Speaking of gold, did you know there is enough gold in the earth’s core to cover the entire land surface of the planet with a half-meter of the stuff?

    Hello Eban,
    I recently. Became a follower on Twitter. And I would have to agree with the point you are making in this blog. When you give of yourself and your resources and you see that it another person has benefitted, it adds value to what you gave away. I have been most fulfilled in life when I’ve helped someone, made someones day a little better by making them smile or laugh. As Tony Robbins has mentioned, contribution is one of the six basic needs. How we meet this need has endless poasibilities.
    Eban, thank you for your insight and for giving your wealth away to those who receive your message. I look forward to more of these messages :)

    I have a friend who once said… during a curious meditation:

    “When you have value to share… let it flow… for you will get rich on the side effects.”

    The digital revolution has created a World where there cost of distributing knowledge and information is nil, leading to an economic situation of “infinite supply.” This is an abundance system… where wisdom can be shared in a way that creates more wisdom. Thus distributing knowledge is about navigating the psychological landscape of transitioning from scarcity to abundance thinking, especially in how knowledge is shared…

    Your evolutionary thinking is right on.

    I am glad you have become a very successful conduit of worthy knowledge and an example of prosperity and well being based upon these principles.
