The Wealthy You! – OFFENSE; it has been said that “money can’t buy happiness”. Have you ever seen anyone purchase happiness with poverty?

How has poverty served America or any other society? Do you believe that you can’t buy happiness with money? If money can’t buy happiness, then what brings happiness to an individual if both money and poverty can’t purchase it. What about wealth? Can wealth purchase happiness?

Wealth isn’t about having lots of money, wealth by its definition, is about having an abundance of resources. Like all resources. Education, healthcare, energy, entertainment, wood, glass, food, parts and equipment for machinery and industry, money and countless other items. Having multiple options for education in society will lead to a wealthier society than having only a single option for people. Healthcare facilities should have a wealthy amount of respiratory therapists, doctors, nurses and other hospital staff to treat all patients as effectively as possible using the latest technology and developments without having to worry about shortages of supplies. A wealthy amount of energy for a nation will include energy from a wide variety of sources such as oil, sun, wind, geothermal, wood, waves, city vibrations (large scale piezoelectric plates), nuclear, food, bugs, animals, and anything else that can plausibly provide fuel or energy so that a process can happen. Entertainment should be a variety of platforms that appeal to as many different people and groups as possible, this is far better than a single entity doing all the entertainment for everyone. If that were the case, everyone would get bored of it over time and it wouldn’t appeal to that many people. It’ll end up failing and being shut down. Mechanics that have a shortage of bolts and other vehicle parts will lead to zero vehicles being fixed and returned to the road. The automotive industry would then be poverty stricken due to the shortage of parts and pieces. What if this happens to a nation? The reason shortages happen is because people within a nation aren’t incentivized to produce. And when nothing gets produced, there is nothing for you and I to use to pursue our own self-interests. Usually nations, states, companies, cities and the individual fail when production is severely cutback, limited or outright eliminated. Wealth can only happen through abundant production (wealth is abundance of resources including your own talent when pursuing a self-interest). Pursuing self-interests isn’t selfish, its selfless. Through your pursuit of self-interests, you will become an expert in your choosing and once you become an expert you will start sharing your expertise with the world. And once the world knows that you are an expert in something, you will find the world coming to you and wanting to trade in their money for your production and expertise that you share with the world. And once this process begins, you will find yourself with an abundance of financial resources that you can use to trade in for other people’s production. This will make you The Wealthy You! and it happens through your production first. Does production purchase happiness?

Money is the most abundant resource in the universe and it becomes worth less each and every year due to inflation, which means you need more of it each year to continue purchasing the things you need. Pursuing the most abundant resource may not make a person happy but pursuing ones own production and labor and then trading that in for as much money one desires could lead to happiness. A person is at their happiest when they produce something they enjoy. The abundant money that comes with it is the icing on top, it is the 5-star steak, it is the limousine, it is the ranch, it is whatever your heart and soul desires but only after producing your self-interest for the world. This is the opposite of poverty.

The Wealthy You! – OFFENSE. Win the war against poverty.

This week on The Wealthy You!; win the war against poverty.

Building wealth for you, your family, and your community is doing your part to win the war against poverty. There is a war against poverty despite it not being mentioned in the news on a regular basis or even hearing other people talk about it throughout society. U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson initiated a war on poverty in 1964, this program has been the center of various different criticisms and its ability to actually fight poverty from a whole-of-government approach, but the reasoning behind it makes sense. This was an interventionist strategy led by the state, but this approach doesn’t allow people or give citizens the opportunity to stand on their own two feet and develop and prosper on their own work, energy and economic production. Johnson’s program has been criticized and often been tagged as the program that has led to the massive welfare state that the U.S. Government has built over the pass few decades. Despite its criticism and shortcomings, the government was correct about one thing; generally speaking, the fewer people there are in poverty, the lower the crime rate, drug use, prison populations, homeless camps and other ills associated with poverty in society. This is a fact that all people can come together on. The easiest way of winning the war on poverty is to not be in poverty yourself. That makes it a personal endeavor instead of a state-led effort. How has poverty served society? Have you ever seen anyone purchase happiness with poverty?

The best and most effective way to not be in poverty yourself is to have a thorough understanding of financial literacy and to produce for others. Understanding financial literacy is my DEFENSIVE approach and producing is my OFFENSIVE approach.

In 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States released the U.S. National Strategy for Financial Literacy. They define financial literacy and education, “Financial literacy describes the skills, knowledge and tools that equip people to make individual financial decisions and actions to attain their goals; this may also be known as financial capability, especially when paired with access to financial products and services. Financial education is the process by which people gain information, skills, confidence and motivation to act, through various means, including classroom education, one-on-one counseling and coaching, technology-based interventions, and self-study. A key desired outcome for financial education is sustained financial well-being, in which people can fully meet current and ongoing financial obligations, can feel secure in their financial future, and are able to make choices that allow enjoyment of life.” In the document, they call for state, tribal, and local governments, the private sector, local service providers and community organizations to work and participate together to teach and spread financial literacy to the people they serve and work for in their corner of society. The Wealthy You! DEFENSE & OFFENSE operate within the private sector. The government wants you to be smart with money and to be wealthy.

Doing your part to win the war on poverty helps not only you, your family, and your community, but it directly and indirectly helps other people from around the world. You become a member of the world’s production instead of being a sole-consumer. Whatever you produce through self-interests, other people in societies around the world will be interested in your production because it is helpful and productive for their life. Those people will merely trade in their own money for your production (OFFENSE), that money goes into your pocket or bank account, you can then use some of that money to trade in for food, energy, home and other things you need, and then through proper financial literacy (DEFENSE) you will be able to build The Wealthy You!.

Imagine going on the OFFENSE to produce a product the whole world will consume and utilize (McDonalds, Apple, Google, Twitter, Ford, Coca-Cola, and any other company that can be found around the world). These companies produce a product for people around the world that are willing to trade in their money for these companies products or services (money is a means of exchange or sharing). Think about humans and what humans need to survive, thrive and live and everything that orbits humans (pets, luxuries, entertainment, wants, etc…). In America (and other democracies with a human-capital means of production) you do not need the state’s permission to produce for the world. You just need to file with the secretary of state in whichever state you plan on operating from and then it becomes your responsibility to figure out how to produce your product or service (factory or farm), distribution of your product and the continued sales of your product. Of course there are a lot of nuances to doing this, but that is a part of the fun in producing for the world and building The Wealthy You!.

Next week on The Wealthy You! – OFFENSE; poverty is a lack of resources and wealth is an abundance of resources.

The Wealthy You! – DEFENSE. It is all mental.

This week on The Wealthy You!; It is all mental.

What is mental? Literally everything in human society. All the physical items, tools, gadgets and other things that you touch everyday stems from a human mind, or a collection of them. Even the rocks, grasses and trees. Humans have created materials that can look like rock and act like rock. Humans can even manipulate rocks found in nature to have a productive use. There are so many grasses, trees and other plants that have been genetically modified to perform an act that humans want those plants to do. Grow bigger crop; produce vibrant colors; have thorn less varieties on plants that have thorns in nature, etc. Each of those plants have been created in a lab-of-sorts that is used to create specific traits in plants. They patent each of those plants with the breeders having specific rights that grant them exclusive control over propagation. Even money is a product of man, created by man in man’s own image. Money is one of the most abundant resources in the Universe and it will literally do what you want it to do. It will buy you the things you need in life, while also giving you the ability to create a product that you can return and provide to society and your community. But it starts with you mentally making the decisions first, to create a very specific reality. Money. Patents. Rights. Exclusive control. Artificial propagation. Billion-dollar businesses. Wealth. Poverty. War. Peace. Capitalism. Socialism. Nations. Borders. Religions. Communism. Freedom. Laws. Stresses. Worries. Depression. Names. Houses. Cars. Planes. Transportation. Defense. Offense. Recipes. Books. Movies. Songs. Betrayal. Loyalty. Just to name a few but these are all physical manifestations of the human mind. If humans weren’t around to recognize any of these thoughts and ideas in a physical form, would they still exist?

Have you ever heard anyone in your life or community say something similar to these statements: ‘I am a realist.’ ‘I live in reality.’ ‘Come back down to Earth and reality.’ ‘Be in the present moment.’ ‘Reality is what I see, feel, hear, touch and taste.’ The problem with all of these statements is that they undercut the value and undermine the creative ability of the human mind to physically create realities. Humans are the only thing in the entire Universe with such an immense ability. Take advantage of that ability and stress test it to create the reality that you want for you and your life. Be as specific as possible though and avoid being generic and vague. Down to the color, shape, feel, sounds and taste. When you do this every day, when you specifically create your reality in your mind every day, you will soon find yourself living a physical life with all those things you first created in your mind. And it will become a daily thing for you, with your mind in complete control of your life and the destination it is heading towards. Make the mental decision to establish a worthwhile goal, something you can pursue every day in your life. That is why I keep mentioning billion-dollar businesses. The daily construction of an organization that provides a product or service to as many people as possible is a worthwhile goal, and it’s your decision. If you don’t know what kind of goal to establish, providing a product or service to just a handful of customers in your community is a great place to start. Building upon that everyday could be one of the most enjoyable things you could imagine doing in your life.

It is all in your head, the power and strength to pursue worthy dreams and goals, and the restraints and insecurities that lead to thoughts of doubt. Filling your mind with thoughts of doubt will make yourself quit at pursuing your dreams and goals long before competition, family, friends and society will make you quit. That is your mind creating a reality that is counterproductive. Money and financial literacy is mental, it can make you a billionaire or make you homeless. What is your decision?

Next week on The Wealthy You!; we will begin the OFFENSE portion of this program.
