Money is a Game... You Must Learn How to Play It

Aug 17, 2007
You see, making money is a game. If you learn the rules of this game, money will flow into your hands. If you do not play by the rules, you will struggle all your life financially despite working very hard.

Haven't you ever asked yourself why some people earn five times, ten times or even twenty times more than others? Is it because they are twenty times smarter? Is it because they work twenty times harder? Or are they many times luckier? The answer to all these questions is a resounding 'NO'!

I am sure you know people who seemed to be much lazier than you in school and had poorer grades but now they are so much more successful financially. Although their school report card used to be chockfull of 'F's, their financial report card carries straight 'A's. Why?

The only reason is because they know how to play the game of money whereas most people have not learnt how the game is played.

You see, none of us are ever taught how to make money, how to invest money or how to manage our wealth and yet money is the most important subject in our adult lives. Although many people say that 'money isn't everything', that's only a half -truth.

The truth is that 'everything is money'! In order to achieve excellence in the different areas of lives like our health, relationships and family, we need to be financially secure!

The traditional education system (thank God it's changing) never taught us how to be rich but instead brainwashed us into becoming poor.

We are taught beliefs like 'study hard, get good grades and a good job and you'll be set for life!', 'investing is risky', 'don't play with stocks or you'll get burnt', 'don't be so money-faced' or 'don't be so stingy'.

As result of all the wrong anti-wealth advice, most people work hard all their lives, going around in circles in the rat race and ending up broke and unhappy.

However, a fortunate few eventually learn that wealth is not made by just getting a good job and working hard. It takes a different way of thinking and a totally different strategy.

Those that learn this lesson get out of the rat race and onto the path of financial abundance and freedom.

Some people take ten years to figure this out, some take thirty years and some never figure it out until it is too late. Don't make the same mistake!
