Wealth And Learning From Other People

article image

Wealth comes with the capacity to learn from those around us. I can say that I learn from everyone that has attained the results that I myself want to attain.

In my personal life, I do not take health advice from someone that is fat, that’s smoking, or that consumes sugar or sodas, or things of that nature that I know are harmful. I do not follow them. I do not listen to them, I do not take advice from them.

Likewise, I would not take relationship or family advice from someone that’s single. If they’re single because they became widowed then that’s a totally different story.

They might be 50 years of age and they were widowed, but they had a very very happy and long relationship before that. Ok, in this case I can take advice from that person.

But if they’re single or their marriage isn’t going exactly the way it should, then why would I? That wouldn’t make sense.

Just like that, I have the same philosophy around everything else in life. So I learn from people that have achieved the results and success that I want to achieve.

I take my wisdom advice from people that have attained wisdom and logic, and that take responsibility for their lives and act accordingly and think accordingly.

Wealth and business

Regarding business, I take business advice from people that have built multi billion dollar businesses. Because that is what I want to create. I look to people like Richard Branson, or Warren Buffett. I look to many, many other people in business and I take everything that would work for me.

We talked about this in another article. We need to truly, truly understand that each one of us is unique. So the way someone does business and the business culture that they create and the values that they have, and the ethics that they have might be very different from mine.

But at the same time I can learn from them how to help people become productive. I can learn how to motivate employees, how to provide great customer service. I can learn how to put in place great HR processes, and so on, and so on, and so on.

So I can learn so much from people that have succeeded. I do not need to copy them, I need to learn from them and then go on my own path.

If I would be, for example, a programmer, I would learn from people that have built things that I have no idea how to build.

If I were a marketing person, I would learn from people that have gotten results that I was never able to get. In terms of PPC, in terms of SEO, in terms of social media or whatever.

So I learn from people that have attained  what I am seeking. If, for example, I am very sad, I learn from people that have experienced sadness and have overcome it. They are happy. What did they do to be happy?

For example, something that happy people do, in most cases, is that they don’t judge events. They don’t judge necessarily if something is good or bad. They take life for what it is.

Wealthy people are resilient

You will notice the happiest people on the planet, the worst things can happen to them, but they’re like ”Oh, well, that’s life. It happens. So that happened, let me see what I can do now. Now I have more data. Based on this data, the variables of my life have now changed. What am I going to do from here?” 

So, you can find so much wisdom in people that have actually managed to do what it is that you want to do.

Too many times we take advice and we listen to and we learn from people that really we shouldn’t.

So, that’s basically my answer. I always learn from people that have achieved what it is that I want to achieve, and I also learn from people that aren’t successful. I have conversations with them and I try to understand their point of view.

It also helps me to talk to someone that isn’t in a marriage or in a relationship. I talk with them about their beliefs around their ideal spouse. Or about how they should treat them and so on and so forth.

I know that is the reason they are single. I know that’s the reason why they are in the situation that they are.

Everything we do, and believe, and say, all of these things will result in our context. Whether I am rich or poor is because of who I am, is because of my beliefs, is because of what I have done until now and so on and so forth.

Obviously, if I am very, very young, if I’m 15 years of age, it’s whatever my parents have done. But we’re talking about people that are 18, 20 and above.

You’ve had your education, you’ve had your own set of drama, ( we all have them), you had your history until now, but that’s the past. Now, the future is in your hands.

You can pursue any career you may want. You can make as much money as you want, you can be at the level of health, and fitness, and energy, and vitality that you want. Also, you can have the family that you want, you can have children or not have children, if that’s what you want, and so on and so forth.

Wealth means to be able to learn from those around us

Wealth comes with the capacity to learn from those around us.

Basically, you can be the person that you want by learning from people that have already attained what you want. And talking to people that haven’t, can reinforce the negative versus the positive.

And obviously you can try to help those people, but I have a rule that I do not give advice when it is not called for. You would be surprised how many times I shared ground breaking wisdom with people, just to have it ignored completely.

And these are people that asked me to share wisdom. They asked me what I would do. They asked me for perspectives. We discussed, and yet they take no action, they keep doing the opposite of what it is that we discussed.

And so, that’s just a way of being and that’s also a great example on why people stay poor. Or why people stay unhealthy, or why they stay unhappy in their relationships and so on.

It is because you tell them. They seek and then they get the answers that are the real answers of what they should do, or say, or believe. But then they just don’t do it.

That enforces the fact that people of wealth, people that attain wealth, are those that listen to wisdom from people that have attained what they want. And then actually do that and actually believe that, in their own way of course.

They can be slightly different. But they need to understand that if they’re going to do something differently than the other person, they might get a different result. And they might like the different result or they might not.
