You knew that Other Big Thing about Wealth, right? 

Yeah that one… 

… the one that contains the phrase “the more you give, the more you get”… 

…? 

Of course you did. 

Who’d have thought otherwise?

However… 

…knowing is one thing… 

… and doing is the real deal. 

Knowing doesn’t necessarily make you do. 

Full-on realization does. 

How’s that going to happen? 

By understanding the principle of flow. 

Flow? 

Why flow? 

What’s flow got to do with it? 

One would perhaps study flow… 

… in physics… 

…? 

That’s exactly it. 

Wealth behaves as per the laws of natural science. 

It flows from high-potential to low-potential. 

When you give, energy flows away from you. 

Vacuum is created. 

New energy flows to this vacuum. 

Vacuum attracts flow. 

It’s a law of nature. 

New wealth flows towards the giver. 

Vacuums have compounded attraction-force. 

Thus compounded new wealth flows towards the giver. 

Need I say anything more? 

I’ll say it nevertheless. 

Whatever you can, whenever you can, wherever you can… 

… GIVE! 

Apart from turning even wealthier… 

… you’ll feel this other thing. 

It’s called content. 

It’s bigger than wealth. 

Lots of wealthy people die wealthy, but few die content.

The One Basic Difference between Wealth and Income 

What’s with this wealth vs income series? 

It goes on and on. 

So what? 

Any problems? 

Thoughts are like threads. 

They can be pulled into infinite. 

Also, they are a realm in which one has unlimited freedom. 

The speed of thought is faster than the speed of light. 

Think about it. 

From here to there – anywhere – Jupiter – Uranus – some other universe – in a flash. 

Explore your thoughts. Pull them out into infinite threads. It pays. 

We are trying to understand the meaning of wealth. 

How is it different from income?

What’s the one elephant-in-the-room factor that sums up this difference? 

Is there even such a factor? 

Yes, I feel there is. 

Maybe someone’s come up with this before. I don’t care. We all stand upon the shoulders of giants, as do I. From there, we generate our two pennies. 

So, how is wealth intrinsically and basically different from income?

Income is something you take out of your flow, to finance your everyday environment, including shucking up for nitty-gritties in day to day lives of those who depend upon you. 

Wealth can be generated from that portion of your flow that has not been taken out for mundane use. This flow, which has not been taken out, has then been simultaneously allowed to coexist by you in a different form, over a long period of time. It accrues, compounds and multiplies – over the long period of time – into wealth.

The most lucrative things in life are also the most simple ones. 

Being simple doesn’t come easy to most of us. 

That is why the majority of humans are not wealthy. 

Going for the Multiple 

Relax. 

We’re not going for the jugular. 

Or are we? 

The jugular has the most copious flow. 

Maybe we are then… 

… going for the jugular. 

However, there’s no stabbing happening. 

We do everything from the inside of our comfort-zone.

We act with harmony. 

Balance. 

Focus. 

Intelligence. 

Common-sense. 

We try and be non-violent about it. 

What are we doing? 

We’re looking to create wealth. 

What makes us look? 

Security. Our basic income secures us. 

Boredom. Adding to our basic income has become boring. 

Overflow. As basic income starts to overflow, it needs a long-term avenue in which it doesn’t demand our constant attention. 

Fine. 

What’s the best way… 

… to go about it?

Where there’s honey, there are bees. 

Finance-people find you. You have money. They have investments. For finance-people, you are bread and butter. 

So, you sit. 

You wait. 

You let them come. 

You’ve got discriminatory-ability. 

You sift. 99% of what comes goes into the bin. 

You like 1%. 

You invest in that 1%.

How much? 

Whatever you pre-define as your per-annum outflow into wealth-creation. 

Only that much. 

What then? 

What’s the bottom-line? 

What’s your holding strategy? 

Nothing. 

You sit. 

The biggest money is made…

…while sitting.”

You’re not even looking at your long-term investment more than once a month. 

You’re not interested in daily quotes.

The daily quote can say zero. You don’t care. You know that you are in the process of creating wealth, and that it’s going to take long, and within that period you don’t care if the world thinks your holding is zero, because you know it isn’t. 

Why? 

Due-diligence. 

Ability to think differently. 

Ability to see wealth in its nascent stage, and to recognize it. 

You have these things. 

They didn’t come for free. 

You took some solid hits to earn them. 

Yeah, you have what it takes, and that’s why… 

… you’re going for the multiple. 

The Business of Writing

Many things can happen when one writes. 

What happens depends on why one writes. 

Some write for money. 

Their bread and butter depends on it.

Writing gets them money. They earn a living. 

At times, they have to eke out words. Even when they’re not coming. Quality goes down. 

Money in the equation carries its own side-effects. 

What happens when money is not in the equation?

Yeah, some are so lucky. 

However, luck or no luck, one has to still want to keep money out of the equation.

When money is what one is writing about, you can imagine the temptation. 

One falls back on one’s basic definitions.

Why am I writing?

Am I writing for money?

Do I need any money that my writing might generate?

If the answer here is no, then the question still remains.

Why am I writing?

Am I writing for fame?

Who doesn’t want to be famous?

Am I able to control this impulse?

If the answer here is well-yeah-mostly, the question still remains.

Why am I writing?

What is the answer?

I’m writing…

…because…

…the words are coming. 

I’ll continue to write till they keep coming. 

I’ll stop writing when words stop coming. 

I’ll resume writing when words start to flow again. 

I’m not going to stop their flow.

I’m nobody to stop their flow. 

Has writing ever harmed me?

Never. 

It soothes. 

Balances.

Calms. 

Settles.

Concepts become clearer. 

Spreads goodness. 

Creates vacuum within, because your energy has ventured out. This vacuum will attract fresh energy from the universe. 

Has there been any regret about writing?

Readership? Perhaps?

Flow reaches its destination. Ultimately. If it’s persistent. 

My writing is persistent. 

It will keep coming. 

Its flow will reach its destination. 

So, any regrets then?

None. 

Happy reading!

What to do with a racing mind? 

Harness it. 

Or, it’ll get you. 

How? 

It won’t stop racing till it finds something of interest. 

Then, it’ll hook on… 

… without caring too much… 

… whether that something’s good or bad.

At that stage, you might not be able to control your mind. 

Control it when it’s controllable. 

Before it’s latched on. 

Before the flow has started. 

Define for yourself the area of flow. 

Actively make your mind connect. 

Regulate your flow. 

Enjoy the harnessed potential of your mind. 

Let’s observe a practical example in motion. 

I’ve actively latched on my mind, among other things, to the stock market. 

The market has many aspects.

I need to take into account most of these, if not all, while picking a stock. 

Sure. 

However, some aspects stand out for me. 

To these aspects I latch on my mind very thoroughly. 

I like it to get a feel for honesty. 

While I’m screening a stock, my racing mind either picks honesty or it doesn’t. 

If it hasn’t smelt and felt honesty after two days of studying the stock, I just let the stock go. 

Some are big on numbers. Some are big on charts. Sure, I look at both. Honesty delivers the final decision for me, though, as in, the crucial blow. 

Instead of resorting to all kinds of nonsense, the racing mind can be taught to become one’s greatest asset. 

WoC

I think I found something. 

It’s very possible someone chanced upon my discovery before me. 

Doesn’t bother me. 

Reason?

I’m happy that I found something…myself. 

Struggle in finding…taught…me. 

I’m richer in implementational knowledge. 

Oh, I forgot to mention that I’m sharing the essence of my discovery…with you. 

Why?

I like to share. 

I won’t be spoon-feeding you…believe me. 

However, I won’t fall short of inserting the seed in your mind. 

Spare me the BS. 

I’ve heard it a million times before.

I have enough, and beyond that, I’m not commercially minded. 

In sharing are the riches. Hoarding leads to blockage…which leads to disease.

Sharing is flow. 

Flow leads to health…and happiness. 

Anyways, I’ve just established the WoC. 

Stands for Window of Confidence. 

You make it. 

How?

With your System. 

How?

Any which way you can mould your System to make it. 

Why do you make it?

It’s your basket…, your fishing net, actually. 

What do you catch in it?

That, which you wish to investigate further…for the purpose of investment. 

Whatever you delve into needs to meet certain standards, right?

There, you have it. 

Oh, one last thing…

…you ONLY look in your WoC…

…for that which needs to be investigated. 

You don’t look anywhere else.

Period. 

Happy Investing!

🙂

What is it about Vacuums?

I borrow often.

Shocked?

You won’t be, after you hear my borrowing ideology.

You see, I only borrow against a solid structure I’ve already created. Free and idle cash makes me take grossly irresponsible and wrong decisions with itself. I’ve learnt to first bind my free and idle cash in a structure, and then to borrow against this structure to create another new and ultimately free-standing structure. I’ve been amazed at the quality of investment decisions coming through for me with this methodology.

Also, I try to only borrow for the purpose of creating this new (solid) structure. Because I’m creating this new structure with borrowed money, this makes me work that much harder during due diligence.

Furthermore, I borrow to create vacuum.

As you understand already, vacuum attracts flow.

On top of that, and this is the icing on the cake, when I’ve borrowed, there’s pressure on me to save, and to nullify the borrowing as soon as I possibly can. Believe it or not, this fact, coupled with the principle of attracted flow, leads to the borrowed amount being filled up (paid back) very, very fast indeed.

What I then have left standing is my original solid structure.

Oh, yeah, I also have my new structure, which I have just created, and which will serve me.

So worth it.
