There are many things that can hold you back from accumulating wealth, but today, I want to cross one of those off the list. I’m going to prove that if you have more, it doesn’t mean that someone else has less.
You know that saying, “your slice of the pie?” It makes it sound like there’s only so much pie and if someone gets a bigger piece, another gets less. Ok, if we’re talking literal pie, yes, this is true. But from a wealth perspective, wealth is NOT a pie. It’s a living, growing, shrinking and expanding organism. So comparing wealth to a pie doesn’t work. And if you think it does, it’s only going to hold you back from accumulating wealth because you’ll think someone else is getting hurt if you do.
“Wealth accumulation is not a zero-sum game.”
Hundreds of years ago, land was the biggest measurement of wealth. The more land you had meant that someone else had less or you bought it from them. But today, we’re so fortunate because there are so many different ways to accumulate wealth.
“Wealth is always being created.”
Here are a few examples of what I mean:
o There is always something to sell. Products, ideas, services etc. – you name it. Even your salary job. You’re selling your time/skillset for money and in return, you create something for your boss to then sell and make money.
o Events and eCourses. Let’s say Susy goes to an event or buys an eCourse for $500. Susy isn’t poorer, she’s actually gained value and could maybe further turn that value into $100K because of what she learned.
“Value is nothing more than an amount that we all agree it to be.”
At the end of the day, just know that there is an endless amount wealth available and your ability to create wealth determines how wealthy you’ll be. You are entitled to as much as you learn to create – without taking anything away from anyone else.
