Who’s getting the money? (Part 1 of 2)
Everyday, millions of people around the world are making a lot of money. The catch is money must have been coming from somewhere.
Everyday, people spend money in exchange of something—product or service. We spend some money for food, transportation, and basic personal commodities among others. It seems like we can’t escape this truth: Whether we like it or not, we’re going to spend.
Therefore, spending isn’t a problem. Although for some people, especially those who don’t have anything to spend, it’s either very difficult or sometimes impossible. However, spending is a part of life. I think we were born with it. Even before we were born, our parents are spending for checkups and good nutrition. So it is an unescapable part of life.
Still, many people seem to hate spending. Regular monthly bill becomes a major issue in one common household. Yes, perhaps the provider doesn’t earn enough. Yes, prices of commodities go up. Yes, there are calamities and all. The thing is there’s just too many reasons why bills become more of a problem than it is a reality.
Those people who are consistently making monthly bills a problem don’t get the point: It is part of life and should not be treated as a problem.
As I look back how my life was when I was still in college living in one slum area in Manila, I’d always hear more problems than I’d here solutions. This is the very opposite of what I would usually hear from successful people I know. It occurs to me like people talking about the problem are the ones spending to get the solutions.
Let’s get to the bottom of this law: Whatever goes out from your pocket goes in someone’s pocket.
What does this law wants us to realize? The answer is the law itself. People must find ways to make their pockets a magnetic pocket, which attracts more money.
However, attracting money is another major issue, at least to those who are working hard and long hours but getting lesser than they think they should get. For those who are not keen about thinking of solutions to problems of other people, it’s very hard to think about attracting the money.
Why do some people get so much and many others don’t? Obviously, there are some who are simply knowledgeable about how money is attracted to their pockets and many others simply don’t know how to do it. Although, a few would try to come up with a trick using “luck” as a shortcut. Yes, they’re able to make money overnight. But for how long can they really sustain it?
Studies have shown that 95% of the people who won a lottery (or made money unexpectedly) lose everything within five years. It’s an interesting idea, isn’t it?
The next logical question now is why and how come.
Well, my easy answer is they are simply not qualified to sustain their “financial success” much less they’re not ready for it. One question is an answer to that question of qualification, too. How can you duplicate such success if you don’t know how you made it?
For those who are winning in the game of chances, the easy answer is, “I will bet again.” But the chances of winning is obviously low.
Next week, I’m going to give you why gambling is never an answer and what really is the answer to your question: Who’s getting the money?
