MORE IDEAS FROM The Highest Forms of Wealth
Most of us imagine money as a panacea for all problems. When it is in the wrong hands, money provides truckloads of social anxiety, insecurity, chronic lifestyle diseases, mental health issues and resentment.
Taken properly, occasionally and with extreme care, even drugs provide great pleasure. If there is no upper limit to how much one intakes, they can be fatal. Money works the same way.
Investing is about 9 percent theory, 1 percent execution and 90 percent emotion management.
Not everyone becomes a multimillionaire, at least not in the short run. The good news is that there are a lot of financial opportunities in the world, and it is possible to build wealth using public markets as a long term investment. Investment requires managing our emotions, and not to be bogged down by the ups and downs of the volatile markets.
You are paid in proportion to the perceived value of your work. Not based on how hard you work: A handyman may work hard, but his work is easily replaceable so he will make less money than a lazy accountant.
The most valuable employees are the ones working on the biggest problems. The richest people are those who solve a problem for billions.
If you want money, stop chasing money. Look for big problems and come up with solutions. The market will reward you generously.
