There are two ways to make money; One way is to have money work for you…
I love people and money is my servant. I use money.
It takes a different mindset to have money work for you than say working for someone else to earn money. Like doing a job and earning a wage takes a different part of the brain than making money work for you. Hence, the rules are different.
Therefore, if one gets addicted to a paycheck that one can count on every two weeks then it is hard to break that addiction or think one’s way out of this cycle. If one gets paid once a week via dividends in stock funds, one may like this vehicle very much and exploit it to its maximum level.
Riding a trend in a stock is like filling up a cup. Its like a wave too. And let’s just say you’re filling up a glass ful of coke and a smile. There is ice in the glass and you just opened a brand new coke bottle. One fills that cup up to the top and the different color fuzz falls over the top and starts going down the glass outside of the cup and dripping onto the marble or stone counter top or whatever. Welcome to riding a trend to the top before it turns on you and drags you down to the bottom hence turning into a loser instead of a winner whom would pour the coke halfway or more and watch the fuzz get up to the top of the glass and take a sip or take a profit.
Working for money is the opposite of having money work for you. It is a different game and a different brain. The paycheck is the coke filling up to the top of the glass. The problem with earning money this way is that it is taxed first, the fuzz at the top or owners earn much more money than employees and this is especially true in very large corporations who tell our government what to do. I saw people protesting in the streets today complaining about this problem but would you rather have the glass break ? No, I didn’t think so. When working for money, performance in school is similar to the concept of it is wrong to make mistakes.
Investing is a fine art and speculation an even finer art. Billionaires share their strategies with the world and PHD’s as well. Mistakes are part of the game. You win a few, you lose a few, but you keep on keeping on. Ideally, you do not want to be addicted to a loser for very long. Herein lies the concept of cutting losses at say negative eight percent. One can be wrong and admit one is wrong and quickly move on to a winner if their position drops to a negative eight percent.
Working for money, when one is wrong, one could get fired. It happened to me. The management fired me because they did not sign off on a sheet to let me go on a vacation to save their behinds. Thanks Grandma, This shall make you proud, me not cursing. God bless the rich, super rich, and wealthy that know how to invest and learn from either their or others’ mistakes because mistakes are costly.
The point is that there are small mistakes and large mistakes. To err is to be a man or woman and to be a superman or superwoman, one must not err and seek perfection. One could do this with a twelve step program, for example. How does the sea relate to the superman? The waves come to shore and the tide rises and falls depending on what the moon is up to. The ebb and flow makes some sand wet but solid and some sand fluid and in flux. The wave itself has its own tide and when it breaks its similar to cause and effect or a chain reaction for it continues to break as it walks the line. Sometimes, the wave is so big that it starts to break from opposite sides. This is where reflexivity enters the picture.
At that job I was fired from, I had dreams of killing my boss. This was not the monkey manager that talked like a parrot or the nymph Echo but another manager, a neurotic narcisisus. This man was salesman 2010 back in 2000. He maneuvered his way through to being the boss thanks to me being fired by the atypical playboy White Devil manager whom is neither the monkey or the robot salesman 2010. Zeus and Hercules would hobknob on their private jets and talk about the business. I did not witness Zeus and Herculues for they were, perhaps, 2,000,000 year old men who spokoe through emissaries.
The way to take the guesswork out of investing is simple. The way a multi-millionaire explained it to me during Passover went something like this: Follow a guru. LOL. That is what his rags to riches Dad taught him. He’s right because institutional investors manage trillions of dollars and these gurus sometimes know what they are up to. These institutional investors are not market makers or even billionaires doing LBO’s. Rather, these folks are like managers managing the pyramid making sure all the money flows up to the eye of Horus which, as we all know, is seperated from the base of the pyramid on the back of the dollar bill.
So working for money is to work for Horus. A God who just floats around up in the sky and when feeling the need, protects us, serves us, loves us, cares for us, but is warlike. This is similar to competing departments in a business, or colleagues jockeying for position in the corporate world, and construction companies vying for contracts from the government, or entrepreneurs trying to get venture captial from vulture errr venture capitalists.
It has been said that the only way one can make a living trading, speculating, or investing in the market is to sell the products. What about service? That is what guru’s do. They serve their people. What do billionaires and market makers do ? LBO’s ? Perhaps these rich folks are the elite who know how to make a buck in the market, hold on to it through tax law manipulation and other forms of “work.”
Moreover, we all know that working for money puts us right smack in the middle of the pyramid. After all, we do have families to support. We must communicate and have cashflow. We must have a product or service and we must be legally in tune with the trends that are constantly changing as our grand litigators bring us toward utopia.
Investing is sane if the investor has a higher power otherwise it is insanity in the form of doing the same thing over and over expecting different results or not knowing the difference between right or wrong. Therefore, one can make covenents with this higher power. We can not see this higher power with our eyes but it is more of an inspiration, reflex, unconscious feeling, and so forth. It is infinite power and is the source from which all things come because remember, the universe is expanding.
When I was fired, perhaps, instead of the money flowing up to the top of the pyramid toward Horus, the money flow stopped as my labor did not exist in the corporation’s eyes. Hence, a charge was made against me. Luckily, there were no judges and lawyers involved which usually is the case with a charge and money flowing in the opposite direction that is Horus, the eye in the sky floating around like trillions of dollars right above our heads because, after all, we can not see money and we especially can not see fiat money. They do not want us to be able to see it. That is why the deal is so important.
Holding investments forever is the way of the mega rich.
They wanted me back as the manager shuffled back and forth and therefore was promoted because of my back being fired. Hence, I had an idea of how I could best serve them and provide the maximum value to their organization and they said “NO.” Hence, I chose freedom not bondage. Now the question is posed correctly. Shall I choose liberty or death ? Liberty, quite simply, is asking someone to do something before you do it; Freedom is the ability to not have to ask before one does something and therefore that someone either benefits or suffers the consequences of one’s action or inaction.
What do you choose?
