How To Become Wealthy RIGHT NOW
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:
- 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.
- 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:
- Teach something to another person in a way that helps them grow on their path.
- Give someone an experience that will help them evolve.
- Introduce two people that could help each other – without expectation.
- Love another person unconditionally.
- 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.
