We all hear the dire economic news and gloomy forecasts. Don’t listen, says my friend Frank.
Here’s all you need to know about “the economy” –
1. Person A gives person B money.
2. B gives A value.
3. The value person B gives person A is 10x more than what A paid.
There’s your economic engine. You want to be B.
As B, fixate on 2 and 3 so that 1 happens over and over and over. That’s the engine
of YOUR personal economic growth.
You add genuine value to the lives of others; they happily give you money.
PS. I’m reminded of the line from “Born Yesterday” which made (in 1946) a star of Judy Holiday. She played Billie Dawn, the bimbo turned bookworm. Billie is full of wonder and good humor, and she makes no bones about not being “smart” like others. “I started thinking,” she says, “and I couldn’t get to sleep for ten minutes.” But I loved this line best, “I’m stupid and I like it.” Sometimes all the “smarts” get in the way of simple directives to our brain. Think?
