This person has helped me get over my fear of investing in stocks. The last time was in the late 1980s. Now I have a job that pays $250,000 a year, and I am not going out to dinner with friends.
I like to think that this person’s contribution is that he has helped me to stop being afraid of investing in myself. He has given me the confidence that I can overcome my fear of investing in myself and be financially empowered. He also helps me to stop comparing myself to other people. I don’t want to be like everyone else.
Well, you can imagine my surprise when I called and asked why you didn’t put up a portfolio of stocks. Well, I said, “My goal is to be in the top 10% in stocks. If I am, I will invest in these stocks in my portfolio.” He said, “You dont really need to compare yourself to other people, you are the only one who can compare yourself to the others.” I thought of people who say they are better than their neighbors.
I know it’s not true, but I’ve heard it so many times that it actually makes me smile. When I hear it, I always think of the old man at the grocery store who says, “I’m a better shopper than you are.
I think that this is a common mistake. We tend to compare ourselves to others in our lives. When we do that, it can be very annoying. But the truth is, if you are better than someone else, you are better than everyone else.
The truth is, if your neighbor is better than you are, then you are better than everyone else. But if your neighbor is better than you, then you are better than him. So what we are saying is that if you are better than your neighbor, and he is better than you, then you are better than everyone else.
So let’s say that you are better than your neighbor. If you are better than your neighbor, then you have more than him. This is sometimes called the “triple bottom line.” That is, if you are better than your neighbor, your neighbor will be better than you, and if he is better than you, you will be better than him.
The triple bottom line is one of my favorite ways to look at economics. It is an excellent way to understand the difference between your neighbors and yourself in all facets of life, and the result is that you can be more productive and successful.
The triple bottom line is a very simple concept. It is a way of thinking about what you are both good at and what you are not good at. Most of the time, when people talk about this concept they are talking about the difference between the money you get from your job and your income, and when you think about the triple bottom line, you are talking about the difference between what we are good at (money) and what we are not good at (income).
We are good at money. This is the point we are most comfortable with. If we work full time and don’t have extra money to spend, we tend to spend most of our time not doing the things we are good at. Some of this is laziness, others is a lack of focus, but we are good in this area. We have a large percentage of our time spent not doing the things we are good at, so we tend to be good at this.
