There's a reason few people understand economics.

And there's a reason why economics is known as the dismal science.

It has to do with why we also HATE doing things like balancing our bank accounts.

Or when we go to the ATM, nobody likes to see their balance.

Everybody has a very DEEP fear of running out of money.

This is for a lot of reasons.

One is instinctive.

A healthy fear of NOT getting our needs met was necessary to get us out of bed every morning.

It's also based on how beliefs are transmitted from parents to children.

It's pretty simple.

We don't need metaphysics .

If you've been around kids you know sensitive they are to the emotions of the adults.

If you're holding a happy baby, and you get angry, (like if you're on the phone) the baby will know.

The baby will sense your angry energy.

Similarly, all of us grew up around adults that were very much like us.

Worried about money.

So whenever they talked about money, they did so with negative energy.

Negative energy, of course, is a metaphor for all the subconscious and non verbal body language and facial expressions associated with anxiety.

Even if we didn't have any clue what they were talking about, we knew it was bad.

Later, when we slowly picked up money vocabulary, we hooked it up AUTOMATICALLY to all that negative energy.

Then as we grew up, we knew having money was good.

But every time we ASKED for money, and were told NO, that VERIFIED those deep negative feelings.

So even if you don't recognize this consciously, even if you KNOW you have plenty of cash in the bank, you still have the ATM effect.

Even though you're getting YOUR money from a machine, it feels FAMILIAR to all the times you've asked for money and were told NO.

So the idea of sitting down, calculating HOW MUCH money you have coming in, and how much you have going out, is TERRIFYING for most people.

Even if it's not terrifying, it's not fun.

Nobody looks forward to doing it.

Nobody enjoys doing it.

Economics is like this but on STEROIDS.

It forces us to ACCEPT that everything costs something.

That nothing is free.

Problem is, we LOVE the idea of free stuff.

We love the self-help idea of ONE WEIRD TRICK.

Of finding any kind of short cut.

This is EXACTLY why PT Barnum said there was a sucker born every minute.

Because suckers are willing to believe something that is too good to be true.

If your strategies are based on magic, shortcuts and other ideas of getting something for nothing, you might want to reconsider.

Truth is PAINFUL.

But truth is EFFECTIVE.
