I’ve always felt that in order to truly have a great financial life, we need to be honest with ourselves and to know what the truth is. The truth always tells us what we know to be true. We learn to be aware of our thoughts and actions, and are able to make better choices when we are able to take a step back and think about them. We need to have the courage of our convictions, and the courage to stand up for what we believe in.
Now I know some will be thinking, “Oh, but I’m not trying to be the next George Soros.” But I’m not that person. I’m not trying to be George Soros. I’m trying to be better than George Soros. I’m trying to live a better life than George Soros. I’m trying to have a better financial life than George Soros.
Now I know this is a very divisive topic and that there is a lot of people that think that we don’t have to worry about finances, but it is. I think that most of us have a tendency to think that we have to have everything figured out, and that if we don’t have all of the information, we have to be self-assured.
Most of us think we have to have all the answers because we don’t really have everything figured out. I think the reason I say this is because we think that if we don’t know what we’re doing, we have to be self-assured in our knowledge. If we think that we don’t know, we don’t know, and we should be concerned.
The reason I say this is because if we think we dont know, we dont know, and we should be worried. The reason this goes for even more is because even when we do know, we think there is no way that we could know that we know. In the same way, think about the amount of money you have, but then think about all of the things that you dont have, especially the things that you think you could have.
A common concern among people is that they think they have all the answers. I often hear people say, “I’ve figured it out, and just so you know, I still don’t know, but I know it. I’ll tell you if you tell me.” It’s always a good idea to be prepared for the possibility that you won’t know, but it is never a good idea to tell someone that you think they have all the answers.
I believe that the solution to this problem is to change everything that you think you have to what you have to have. For instance, if you believe you have a lot of money, you should change that to what you have to have. If you think you have a lot of money, you should change that to what you can save. What you could have is a house, a car, a boat, a jet ski, a mansion, etc.
One of the things that’s so frustrating about life is that we have a tendency to think we know what we need. This is the classic fallacy of “I know more than you know, and I have more wisdom.” Most of us have been taught since kindergarten that the more we know the more we’re smart, and the more we’re wise the more we’re wise.
As a result, we assume that we know more than we actually do. So we go to the mall and buy stuff we know we don’t need. A good way to get in trouble with our teachers is to go to the mall and buy a new set of glasses. That’s when they start yelling at us.
This is the way we’re supposed to do it now. We like to keep the glasses from falling out of our eyes, but we also like to keep the glasses from falling out of our eyes without any effort to fix them.
