I don’t promote cannibalism.
But people everywhere, including your friends, family, auto-mechanic, strangers, pest control man, celebrities, neighbors, teachers, beggars, comedians – they are all there for you.
Sometimes your greatest asset, and at other times maybe your only asset, the people in your life are there to serve you.
Even the ones who are being a pain in the ass.
The ones who are making your life difficult in some way.
Even they remind you what you stand for, what your goals are, and produce feedback for your reflection and improvement.
On the other end of the spectrum, there are people who will make you money.
People who will save you time.
People who teach you invaluable lessons that keep you from making costly mistakes.
People who connect you with business opportunities, or who connect you with other people who can enrich your life in some way.
The people in your life may be the single greatest overlooked resource available to you.
Simply because you’ve become so accustomed to them being around all the time, you overlook them.
It’s the same way the reticular activating system in your brain allows you to drive a familiar route from start to finish while thinking of something entirely different, and only upon arriving you wonder how you got from point A to point B.
Sometimes habitual thinking works against us.
Sometimes ingrained neural pathways, though from an evolutionary standpoint help us become more efficient, prevent us from noticing the resources available to us.
I’ve mentioned the great Earl Nightingale before – how he talked about all of the opportunities right under our noses that we miss, because we are too busy looking for greener grass elsewhere.
It’s the same with people.
They are everywhere, colonies of them, like freakin’ ants – and even some of them bite.
And so we look past them.
But part of becoming wealthy is enjoying the wealth of other people – recognizing all they can and have given us, and working to prioritize them, cultivate them, and nurture them in return.
Sometimes I imagine what it would be like to be the last person on earth, let’s say, because of the zombie apocalypse.
I would have every resource available – the world would literally be entirely mine.
And I’d have all the time in the world to “enjoy” the abandoned mansions, the riches, the stuff, the food.
But I would be so incredibly depressed and destitute, without anyone to share it with.
That’s why I’m a big fan of the wealth threesome: wealth of money, time, and people.
If you don’t have all three, you lack true wealth.
And to help restore the balance of wealth back into your life, I’m here to help.
Don’t get me wrong: I’m not perfect, I’m not a genius, and I don’t have all the answers.
But I’ve helped a whole lot of people in my day, and I know I have quite a bit I can offer you
