admin Posted January 19, 2019 Report Share Posted January 19, 2019 Everybody wants more money. Rich people want more money. Poor people want more money. If you have a ghost in your house, the ghost probably wants more money. At the same time, we don't like the idea of other people having more money than us. Especially if we THINK they got it by "cheating." Sniffing out cheaters is an instinct. A very necessary one. Our instincts still believe we are living in ancient hunter-gatherer tribes. That's why it's so hard to lose weight with will power. Our instincts REALLY BELIEVE that we might not get any food in the foreseeable future. Our instincts CAN'T think or plan. They can only COMPELL us. And our food instinct COMPELS us to eat as much as we can whenever there is plenty of food available. How does our cheating instinct work? It's a social instinct that helped bind ancient tribes together. It FORCED everybody to share. One guy got a big kill, he was compelled to share it with everybody. Both because he felt compelled, and because he knew people would be angry if he didn't. This kept tribes tightly organized. Everybody trusted everybody. Everybody worked together to help each other survive. So today, when we see somebody who's super rich, AND it doesn't seem like they "earned" it, it triggers our cheating instinct. But like most of our other instincts, they are what they are. If you want to stay slim and healthy, you MUST be hungry and not eat. If you want to make more money, you MUST ignore the natural anger we feel for rich people who are "lucky." Rich people who show up with the right set of skills, or even looks, that make it EASY for them to make money. Getting angry won't help. It would be like getting angry at your hunger. But that frustration is also an instinct. It's a natural motivator. The frustration makes you ANGRY. And you use that anger to overcome obstacles. What obstacles? The ones between where you are and where you want to be. Most people use their anger ineffectively. They use their anger to try and get OTHER PEOPLE to remove their obstacles. That FEELS GOOD. Especially when politicians make promises that SOUND like that. "Vote for me and I'll fix your problems." That, unfortunately, is the one OLDEST lies of organized society. Don't fall for it. The ONLY PERSON who can remove the obstacles between where you are and where you want to be is YOU.
