Like most people I was enamored with ‘secrets’. I’ve clicked on articles, videos, podcasts and talks when the headline offered SECRETS. For example, the ‘secrets’ to making more money. Secrets, really? Money is a unit of value exchanged between two parties. Humans have been exchanging value forever… Secret? Nah… Ignorance? Yes!
Success (and failure) leave clues. If you study the clues, you’ll learn how to make money, and how to avoid losing money. Fair enough.
Now, why do you think somebody else has figured out the ‘secrets to making more money’, and you don’t know the ‘secrets’? Well, simple. One, it is NOT A SECRET. It is often common sense and obvious. It is also because of personal ignorance – we are often unwilling to seek answers to what we want. We humans are lazy. We want somebody to ‘hand it to us’. We also often think that others revealing the ‘secret’ validates that method for making money. Why? We often don’t trust ourselves!
Why didn’t you see the ‘secret’ yourself, given it is often common sense, and is ‘hiding in plain sight’? Well, the answer to that is simple too… we are colored by our mindset – the filters (beliefs, rules, principles, values…) each of us use to give meaning to the world around us. Why do some people see money-making opportunities everywhere they look, while you may not? Well, it’s their mindset.
Guess what? You too can learn and develop a money-making mindset (if that is your interest). The obstacle there is often laziness, and the need for instant gratification. Nobody became a millionaire or billionaire in the blink of an eye.
