Let’s continue with the Lousy Systems Thinking list.
7. Making/losing funds is a zero-sum game. Wow. The best guilt trip for the aspiring or presently wealthy. In the event that you succeed, I lose. It’s gibberish. The 2 wealthiest people on earth, Warren Buffet and Bill Gates (combined worth, 99 billion), produced tremendous value out of nothing at all. The truth is that life is all about building and growing. Something is possible to be developed out of nothing at all.
8. Wealthy men are selfish assholes. Let’s pull Bill and Warren back to the subject. In the year 2010 they are spending nearly all their time offering parts of their fortunes to charity. Buffett says, “My goal is to die having given 99% of my money away.” Both of these 2, like the majority of the rich, built their personal fortunes from scratch and today that they’ve accumulated extraordinary prosperity, they don’t sit in their home Midas-like, counting their funds. They cautiously do great with their wealth. Are both of these men anomalies? No. 98% of charitable donations (and it should be said, jobs) are a result of the rich. I’ll add something: The majority of those who flourish in life are remarkably generous, good human beings.
9. Horizontal thought process. It’s the time to go over the 2 primary societal economic systems. The socialistic horizontal model that’s based on the belief that authorities should assertively control the components of an economic climate, promising that everyone could have the same outcome. In this, government involvement must always limit individual independence and wealth regardless of the human-nature truth that the majority of people desire more independence and prosperity than whatever they presently possess. The democracies are vertical, with limited government intervention as humans move openly on the economic scale. This is crucial: Unlike the static 19th century India caste program, in the present day democracy economic classes are flowing, with individuals relocating in and out of wealth and poverty predicated on their own achievement and failure. Authority intervention is minimized as the marketplace system is permitted to function freely. (Yes, I know. The present day’s democracy isn't perfect, and there is the requirement for some minimal amount of authority regulation and oversight.) Undeniable real-life proof that the vertical financial system is better than the horizontal financial system? Compare typical living circumstances of the residents of horizontal North Korea and vertical USA. Another exemplory case of horizontal thoughts: Buying totally into dogmatic religious, political or mental theory. The extreme amount of this can even be cultism, but for the majority of us there are lesser examples of blind acceptance that it might be wise to query. Going vertical means having a logical thoughts about practically everything: The brain reaches its greatest state when used to create independent analysis, much less as a recording gadget. Choose the positions that match your idea of everyday reality. Unpleasant as it may be right now, don’t mistake everything you think about reality with what it truly is. Beware of the 2 most horrible horizontal thought baits: Peer group pressure and one’s own instant gratification. When determining what things to believe in, don’t let yourself be manipulated! Have your thoughts go up & down, not sideways.
