You are you. He is he. She is she. I am I. It is it.
Even if the above is the only thing that you carry home from this space, you’re done already.
Move on then, with your life, because you’ve understood something big.
If not, do please read on.
You are not I. I am not you. He is not she. She is not he. That’s it.
Here’s the next biggie.
Those who come into funds need to know how to manage them. Period.
Do what you want. Run umpteen miles. Put up a million facades. Muster up all the drama you’re capable of. After that you’ll come to this conclusion …
… that nobody else is more capable of managing your funds than you yourself.
Because you are you. You know yourself best. A third party is firstly (realistically) not bothered about knowing you, and secondly is only capable of seeping into a minuscule portion of you, if he or she makes the effort. Forget about third parties.
So you realize you need to manage your own funds, what then?
Jump into the water.
While your corpus is small, make mistakes. Learn from them. That’s college. Tuition fees.
Recognize your strengths. Play to them. Pulverize your weaknesses after identifying them.
Then come the structures, from within. These are your structures. They’ll come from inside of you.
There’s you, and there’s the battle-field. The two are face to face. It’s a do or die situation. You go into reflex-action mode. Your systems start to function at full capacity. That’s when structures emerge.
Yeah, structures need an activation barrier to emerge.
There’s a protective structure. It’s your protective structure. It guides you to build your moat. It protects your family.
Then there’s your post-protection bulk-game structure. It guides you towards building up your innings without the worries of basic bread and butter.
Lastly, there’s your multiplication structure. It chalks out high-reward-high-risk strategies, tweaks them towards maximum possible safety, and tells you where to put that minute percentage of your corpus with the intent of achieving extra-ordinary gains.
Allow such structures to emerge. Embrace them. Innovate. Improvise. Achieve. Educate.
Go for the jugular.
