Gordon Gekko once said, “Greed is good
Wall Street, The Movie
Today, pursuing wealth comes with a lot of judgment.
Society’s been focused on the negatives of being rich in the last years, unfortunately, and that’s due to the freedom of expression in media bias.
This scums really like talking s*it about anyone to everyone in between. And if they don’t have noting to say about you, they will stupidly invent distorted reality in between about you just to get the attention of the masses. I call this ‘The Compound Effect Of Distorted Reality’
And that’s how at the most extreme, wealthy people are often portrayed on digital screens and in print as narcissistic, soulless, selfish and out of touch with humanity. And, the media loves to spotlight distorted decisions when wealthy people do their things – in their own way of living their own life.
It’s a way to reinforce the stereotype. However, while it’s well documented becoming rich can lead to actions that are deplorable, there are others focused on spotlighting the good that can come from pursuing wealth.
I am going to talk a little about this.
Helping people understand that making a difference in the world can be done at scale when you have wealth, Is one of the hidden successes and It’s secrets to philanthropy. This secret is also the key to unlock the power of your philanthropist dream.
Being rich is a good thing but not just in the obvious sense of benefiting you and your family, but in the broader sense. Profits are not a zero sum game. The more you make, the more of a financial impact you can have. You may take a note of such words.
Creating wealth to help you and your family is a noble and important goal and that shod be your main goal as first is first and you make take a note of such words as well, but so is creating extreme wealth so you can use it to change the lives of others.
If you have the capacity to become richer, why not, just be rich. ‘The Future Is Limitless For You’ and other opinions – ‘from others’ – asking you, how you become rich is not important such questions. The best lesson you can teach an irritating nat, is to consign it to oblivion by ignoring it.
More recently I’ve been asked how I managed to save €100.000 during the past 10 years. I’ve obviously responded ‘Through an actively long term return of the compound effect in a hand-full of stocks and shares, keeping them on the thick and thin journey’ and every day when I wake up just telling to my self, how gratefully I am, and I will not waste this day, no matter what.
They say…a man and a woman is the product of its thoughts. What she or he think, he or she becomes.
Creating extreme wealth It would enable you to be more generous too. That said, if you choose this path and you are in the spotlight, personal branding around how you use your wealth for good is equally important.
My self, I’m not a fan of giving to charities, It’s a NO NO situation for me and that’s because I know one or two things how those money are used. In one word, I am not interested in giving money away that will be used totally distorted.
My money and such your money as well, comes from hard work and disciple compounded on a period of 10 to 20 years time.
I remember somewhere in 1998, I had a tena, a two € coin and some change as my net worth, adding that as an optimist, I rounded up to thirteen.
The number 13 is an inside sad joke. At least I have something to remind my self, a bleak period early in my life, when I was cut from the Orphanage at the age of 14, and arrived broke in a bus station October 1998…oh my, Well, the rest is a mighty journey. I am still swimming though that journey.
But not the last, It has to be audience first in whatever I will do. What does the audience want Is a question everyone of us ‘the Artists’ shod ask our self – now and then. And what is the best scenario that you can create that will send them home happy? I leave such question with your thinking.
Returning in thew Article, I have my own charity that I support, ” FEELANDBJØRNFOUNDATION ” and my own principles where the money will go. I approach the poor artist that really stands out with his or her extraordinaries – talents, and I help pay it’s bills and help them solve problems in their careers with tactical counsel from my self.
And I don’t have a total how much I help because I don’t have that much, but for sure I know that you make a living by what you get and you make a life by what you give.
You can start giving even if you have very little. Right now. There can be no greater gift in your life to have meaning beyond your self. By giving when you don’t have much, you teach your brain that you have more than enough. You may further pursue taking note of such words with your ‘Imaginable Pen’
Whether you agree with my strategy or not, doesn’t matter. I am the master of my choice and your opinion is not important. But at least I am taking control of my solo conversation and being clear about how I choose to impact others. Which leads to the secret to smart personal branding…and you may further pursue even more on taking a note of such words. So, proceed sharping your imaginable pen. Please.
Personal Branding Is About Revealing Values & Beliefs of your own narrative self by knowing not everyone will agree with them.
One of the biggest lessons we learn in life is we can’t please everyone. And neither you ‘my darling’ – The Artist, The DJ or Musician, or whatever you are. Your work will NEVER please everyone. I want you to take notes of such words from Isaac.
However, what many people fail to understand is there’s power in being honest about your views of your own world, and that can be even your own imaginable world, so that those with similar views can align with you. Such is the music you produced aligns with your audience. Such is the DJ’ set you play align with your audience. Such is the clothing you wear aligns with your personality. Such is the eyes aligns with your seduction. Such is the power of being likeable by the people in your life and as well – the audience. Such is the power of being you. Such is the power of being remembered – of being you.
Just as you can’t get everyone to like you, you don’t have to like everyone.
Knowing this, ask yourself, ‘What am I doing to make my beliefs known so that the right people in my life, can find me?’
As you climb in your career and become more visible and even possibly more wealthy, personal branding is the way you can articulate your thoughts and define your views in your very world.
The more you share ‘a truly you’, the easier it is for the people you want to work with to know and trust you.
I want you to trust your self.
And remember, art should be an adventure of exploring an unknown and mysterious world…of you. It’s okay you can’t get everyone to like it. Just be you.
But For Now,
To Your Success.
