You are not as wealthy as you should have been by now

One of the news headlines that caught a lot of attention a few years back was this: “10-year-old Emmanuella builds a house for her parents.” This was reported by BBC News Africa and other news outlets. Towards the end of November 2020.

Maybe you are not surprised, maybe you are. But the only reason why this was news is because it is not typical for a 10-year-old to be affording a house. Children working to earn consistent income is so alien to our society. Society has an unwritten rule that says that at Age 10 you do not concern yourself with getting employed; you focus on your schooling and running errands for the elderly, like children do. You study to get good grades so that you can go to the university and again graduate with good grades and an admirable title or credentials. And then you get a well-paying job with a good title and good benefits; that’s when you start earning. But that is dumb! As you will soon see.

That a 10-year-old girl is wealthy enough to afford something like a house or any asset for that matter, should not be the exception, but rather the norm. Because we all have the inbuilt potential to be wealthy enough at a tender age. But because of the turgle mindset, we don’t!

I for one always engaged in enterprises to earn income along my schooling right from age 5, and was still either the best or among the best in every class I have been part of. So, with good time management or proper planning, it is possible to be working to earn income while schooling and still excel in academics! I was involved in making and selling greeting cards, success cards, wall hangings; printing of t-shirts, sewing clothes, selling magazines, etc. At age 5, I was making toy cars and coal pots out of empty milk and milo cans and selling them.

However, even in my case, because I did not have a business mentor or manager at that time I saw those adventures or ventures more as a hobby rather than a serious business, so I didn’t take it that seriously until after university. How sad!

Naturally, you may also be recounting some opportunities you might have missed because of a turgle mindset.

The age at which most people start earning income is too late and unhealthy! It is said that most people have only two problems, money problems, and other problems. Interestingly, most of the other problems could be solved with money. In that sense, almost all problems are money problems.

Since money is so important, why not start making it very early; especially since most adults have money inadequacy issues? See the population-based pyramid of wealth below and compare the proportions…

This will be discussed later in Section 3: Quick Guide to Your Dream Wealth and Financial Freedom.

Emmanuella still has a very long way to go, but what she has achieved is commendable as it is not typical in the environment she finds herself. In any case, what worked for her was that she got good mentors and good business managers early in her life. And that is mainly what we all needed when we were much younger, and you still do need now, to redeem the lost time. Of course, you have many such mentors at your disposal now.

So, it is very true that you could have been far richer than you are now. It does not even matter if you are still in school.

You may take consolation in the fact that a lot of your peers are just like you; not significantly richer, and not significantly poorer. But that is only because you are comparing wrongly. In that sense, you are being like the turgle. It is very normal though; nothing strange about that. It is how society might have socialised you to become. But you do agree that if you had had the benefit of harnessing your true or hidden potential right from an early age, with the right kind of business mentorship and management, you would have been far wealthier than you are now. You have been comfortable being this way only because you accepted to follow society’s mediocre blueprint without knowing. Because you have had a turgle mindset without being conscious of it; you are not to be blamed.

So, you must become the real you. It is not late. But where are you in the pyramid of wealth though? It is said that “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second-best time is now”. And this will be possible with proper personal development; the kind this course introduces you to.

About Courses

Courses are also also known as a workshops. Courses (or workshops) are made up of lessons, topics, and quizzes; the main components which constitute the Course Content, along with preambles or intros.

Genuinely cannot afford a paid course? No problem, we’ve got a scholarship/sponsorship package* for you; you may scroll further down to apply. *Terms & Conditions apply.

Typical Course Page

A typical course or workshop page looks like illustrated below; it has course title, display picture, author info, help buttons, course preamble, course content (also called course outline), enrollment panel, etc…

The Course Content usually comes after a brief intro or preamble to the course. Note however, that the course intro or preamble could be included in the Course Content itself, in which case there may not be a separate preamble before the course content.

Where they occur, topics are subsets or sub-components of lessons. There could be quizzes for various topics, and/or lessons. And/or a final quiz for the overall course. These main course content components are hyperlinks or clickable links. They could further be separated into different sections, with section headings which are not hyperlinks or clickable links, but just labels.

To access a particular lesson or topic (or quiz, where applicable) you usually have to click it. When you do it should open to a page where the actual material or presentation (be it a lesson, a topic, or quiz) can then be seen, along with associated navigation buttons to help you navigate through the entire course.

Please take particular note of the enrollment panel which comes immediately after the Course Content or Course Outline. You may use that to enrol. More about that further below; you may scroll further down.

Though not illustrated in the above screenshot, a brief profile of the author, trainer or instructor is usually further below the page; usually after the social buttons and a repeat of the course title for relational appreciation.

Typical Lesson Page

A typical lesson page looks like illustrated below; it has lesson title, display picture, author info, progress bar, lesson preamble, lesson content, navigation buttons, etc…

For emphasis, do note that topics for a lesson (and quizzes, where applicable) are usually listed under Lesson Content as hyperlinks or clickable links; possibly after a preamble for the Lesson. Possibly, because a Lesson may or may not have a preamble.

Again, to access a topic (or quiz, where applicable) you usually need to click it. And it should open to a page where the actual material or presentation (be it a topic, or quiz) can then be seen, along with associated buttons to help you navigate through the entire lesson (and course).

Typical Topic Page

Of special interest is the “Mark Complete” button. Whenever you are sufficiently done with or have completed a sub-topic or a lesson that does not have sub-topics, you need to tell the system so, for the purpose of tracking your progress. You therefore have to click the “Mark Complete” button.

Please note that when in a sub-topic you cannot move directly to the next lesson; you will have to click back to the parent lesson before moving to the next lesson from there.

Note also that you are required to enroll into a course before you can take take the full course. More about enrollment further below.

Access to Lessons and Topics

It is important to note that in certain situations, especially when you have not logged in, or when you have logged in but have not enrolled into that particular course or workshop, the links may not work as expected but rather show a notice that says: “You don’t currently have access to this content” (white on a blue background). In that case you have to log in first, which requires that you must have registered already or otherwise you have to register and enroll; you may click here for more about Registration.

Sometimes you may see a ‘SAMPLE LESSON’ label by a lesson, similar to as shown below…

Any lesson labelled this way can be viewed even when you have not enrolled or even logged in; when you click on any such lesson it will open so that you can preview it.

Now, on the issue of enrollment, if you logged in, and a progress bar similar to the one below was on the course page, usually above the course preamble, then you are already enrolled…

If so please close this window, and then click the applicable lesson, topic, or quiz under the ‘Course Content’ on the course page to proceed with the course. 

If you have logged in and still seeing the notice that says: “You don’t currently have access to this contentthen you need to enroll into that course in order to gain full access; see below…

How to enroll

If there was no progress bar on the course page, then you should find the Enrollment Panel with a ‘NOT ENROLLED’ indicator similar to the one above; usually located below the Course Content or Course Outline on the main course page, and not the popup course outline. As earlier illustrated further above. Please take particular note.

In that case you have to click the ‘Login To Enroll‘ button (for free courses) or the ‘Take this Course‘ button (for paid courses) or similar text beneath the ‘Get Started’ inscription; on the course page. Most free courses still require that you should first login with your username and password. If you don’t have a password for this community website, please register; General (Entry) level registration is FREE! And takes just 2 minutes, in 2 steps. You may click the “Register” button below:

After clicking the said applicable button or text as indicated above, the ‘NOT ENROLLED’ indicator should disappear, and the progress bar should appear on the course page. That indicates that you are now enrolled. You can then click the applicable lesson, topic, or quiz under the ‘Course Content’ on the course page to proceed with the course.

So in the diagram, how many squares did you make out in total; how many squares are there?

Well, most people get or give 16 as their answer. Some get 17 and a few get 21; and that’s at least better than the ‘16’ answer majority of people give. Just about 1 percent of people surveyed get the best answer; which is…

Well, get a full illustration of all the more than 21 possible ‘hidden’ squares…
