I call you ‘Seer’ because you come across as someone who ‘sees’ a wonderful future for yourself, and you’re taking steps to achieve it; in other words, you have Vision!
Seer, money is important, we all agree on that fact. To illustrate its importance King Solomon said in the Wisdom Literature
that, “Money answers everything,
” and, “…wisdom is a defence as money is a defence
.” It is said, “You are not really free until you are financially free!
” That, “Money is the sixth sense without which the other five senses cannot be used effectively
Since money is that important, why have we not made adequate effort
to teach ourselves the effective ways to create abundant wealth? Is it not sad that financial difficulties in various forms continue to reign as the topmost issues bothering the majority of people; ‘sinners
’ and ‘saints
’ alike? The wealth profile across society is heartbreaking! Experts estimate that just about 10 percent of the people own 90 percent of all the wealth available. Besides, the Rich is getting richer, and the Poor, poorer! All these happen because there is a general and a gross lack of financial literacy at the basic level
. What one likely gets is the classical advice, “Go to school, study hard, pass your exams well and get a good, well-paying job!
” Good advice; however, not enough! The reason is that the subject of making money
is not given adequate attention in our schools, if at all; except probably later in business schools. Indeed, Seer, inference drawn from a study once carried out by Harvard University implied that school teaches just about 22 percent of what people require to be truly effective and significantly great.
The general neglect of financial literacy makes many people operate from a position of ignorance
or a state of unconscious incompetence
– not knowing what one does not know – and consequently struggle financially, though each of us has the potential to create abundant wealth for our individual selves, and our dependants.
The principal objective of this book therefore, is to be a good complement to formal education – by stimulating you to awaken the financial genius that lies within you.
Seer, the power is in your hands!
