admin Posted March 27, 2019 Report Share Posted March 27, 2019 There are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to making money. A common idea is that all you need is an "idea." But the truth is that ideas are only a beginning. A small seed that MAY turn into a fortune. This is the idea behind the saying, "genius is 1% inspiration, and 99% perspiration." People like things like scavenger hunts. When I was a kid we had those. Adult also enjoy doing this. Only as adults, it's much more complex, and much more rewarding. Geocaching, where you essentially use the entire EARTH to have treasure hunts. What does this have to do with money and genius? Think of going on an adventure. A geocaching adventure. You and a few buddies have taken some time off work. You're going to canvas a huge area looking for a few hidden pieces of treasure. You find the treasure, leave some of your own for the next group. This takes time. This takes effort. This takes thinking. But it's FUN. Making money COULD be the same. The EXACT same. You keep trying different combinations. You keep learning new skills. Making more money with each iteration. This is, potentially, even BETTER than treasure hunting. Because in money making, the closer (or further along) you get, the more money you make. The "perspiration" in that saying (1% inspiration, 99% perspiration) is ENJOYABLE perspiration. Your mind is on fire with excitement. Your body is on fire with energy, getting closer and closer to the breakthrough. This is the stereotypical scientist in his lab for days, losing track of time. This is how making your fortune COULD be. But for most people, it's not. Since making money generally involves getting out there and interacting with strangers. Something most people are TERRIFIED of doing. So we like to FANTASIZE that all we need is an "idea." And once we have an idea, then somebody else will buy it from us, and do all the work. But if you look at some of the biggest fortunes in the past few decades or so, most of ideas are pretty basic. In fact, most ideas pass through something called "survivorship bias." Most fortunes are made like this. Start out a TON of ideas. Keep trying them out until ONE of them "hits." And that ONE idea is going to make your fortune. If you look at it AFTER the fact, it seems easy. We say, "Damn, I could have thought of that!" And you CAN. But thinking of ideas is only the beginning. Trying them out, again and again, until you succeed is where the money is made. And this WILL feel like an exciting adventure once you get rid of your limiting money beliefs. In fact, this is the most exciting thing you can do as a human. It combines ALL your positive skills.
