Most people are working to become relatively poor or poorer

Three unstoppable processes are constantly fighting to keep you relatively poor or poorer; they are: a. Personal Physical Growth b. Economic Inflation, and c. Technological Advancement. The rate at which you generate income must exceed the effects of all these three, else you will never be truly satisfied with your living circumstances, in that you are bound to be relatively poor. That is certainly not your portion! Except that unless you take the right steps or implement the right measures, you may not escape the consequences, as you cannot stop yourself from comparing your circumstances with other people doing far better in various aspects of life, especially economically and environmentally. Of course, your presence here is part of the right steps, so just stay the course.

There are three classes of work: Routing, Thinking, and Organising. Thus, in the world of work, a person is either a Router, or a Thinker, or Organiser; or a combination of these. Usually, a person progresses from being a router to being a thinker, then finally to organiser, if he or she chooses. Sadly, majority of people are preoccupied with routing; knowingly or unknowingly.

Likewise, there are three main degrees of wealth: the highest is being Truly Rich and Financially Free. Then we have the Middle Class, and the lowest level is The Poor.

Note that we say truly rich because most of the people we often refer to as rich are not that rich, but just middle class – often lower middle class, and sometimes even poor. It is not in appearances or the adult toys we usually display. People fake those all the time.

And research shows that even though each individual born into this world has the inborn capability to pursue and become truly rich and financially free, majority of people – inadvertently – work towards being poor. It sounds unbelievable but that is the case!

Some pursue and attain middle class which is generally classified with the poor bracket as the bottom because their combined value does not compare anywhere near that of truly rich and financially free. Indeed, the wealth of the top 3 percent is more than the total wealth of the rest of the 97 percent. It is very serious! And, needless to say, you do not stumble to the top; you do not get there by accident or by luck per se; it is a deliberate path you choose with the guidance provided later in this book.

Work-Wealth Correlation

Interestingly, there is a strong relationship between the class of work, and the class of wealth. Most of the persons in the poor class happen to be routers. Most of the persons who fall into the middle-class bracket happen to be thinkers. And most of the persons who fall into the rich bracket happen to be organisers, and ironically, they are often not the very highly educated ones. This does not mean that the highly educated ones cannot be rich, they can – and some are rich – but surprisingly, they are often unwilling to go through what it takes to become truly rich and financially free. And you are not truly free, until you are financially free!

It is the case that 80 to 90 percent of people – likely including yourself – use the wrong approach to ‘making money’ and stress themselves needlessly. Why do you think most people – including people with high academic credentials – struggle financially, and that corruption seems to be so widespread? And why do you think the rich get richer and the poor, poorer?

Indeed, experts have deduced that if we should gather all the money in the system and distribute that equally among everybody – let’s call that #reset – within just a few months money will flow from those who were poor before the reset, back into the hands of those who were already rich before the reset; so, we will be back to almost the exact situation before the reset.

Yes, when it comes to making money, most people get it wrong. I can only hope that you are not getting it all wrong too. And if you are doing it the wrong way, no amount of seeming ‘hard work’ will get you out of the unfortunate vicious cycle; it will be like climbing fast on a staircase that leads to the wrong apartment; or speeding on a road that leads to a different destination than the one you hoped or intended.

And when especially those with good academic credentials realise this and especially the mismatch between academic credentials and true wealth – often late; usually when they have worked in corporate institutions as employees for some years — most resort to unethical means such as extortion and stealing (intellectually glorified as bribery and corruption) in order to enjoy some of the luxuries of life. Otherwise, they have to reinvent themselves or else resign themselves to a mediocre life; far below their expectations as befitting their academic credentials.

You are certainly going to learn the suitable path to becoming truly rich and financially free as you get empowered to pursue the meaningful life eventually as a successful organiser.

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…
