Value of Time: The Fourth Dimension of Wealth

This is NOT another normal article on how money, compounding interest, and the value of time creates wealth.  Trust me, this article is different.  It has two aliens in it named, Albert and Cliff.

TIME is a fascinating dimension to explore.  Philosophers have theorized that TIME is our fourth dimension of life here on earth.  Considering that our minds spend the majority of our lives processing the information flowing out of the three dimensions of space, I thought it would be a great investment of time to explore this fourth dimension of TIME.  Let’s really learn and explore how the value of time impacts our minds, attitudes, and ability to create wealth.

I’d like to ask you question before we travel deeper into this story:

“How does a wealthy and a poor mind see the value of time differently?”

Overcoming Perfectionism: Master your Priorities!

This story shows the pyramid you HAVE TO LEARN if you want to overcome perfectionism and build wealth!

I felt like I was flying a rocket ship around the colorful, psychedelic planets of my dreams.  But suddenly it felt like I’d just crashed into the moon.  The alarm clock went off.  It was 6 AM.  I opened my eyes from the deep sleep. Down the hallway in the kitchen,I heard my wife screaming at me:

“You didn’t listen to me again! You didn’t buy enough mushrooms for my pot luck party!”

I reached over and turned off the alarm clock.  I felt like I was still floating in space because it was still dark out.  I rubbed my eyes and put my glasses on.  I grabbed a t-shirt and yelled back down the hallway.

Find Yourself and Conquer the Crazy Inside of You.

I call this style of writing DJ fiction, because I feel it’s just like a DJ spinning records.  Everything is true, but I mashed together a lot of different eras of my life to create this hybrid form of writing to tell a story about finding yourself. 

I walked into the psychologist’s office and slowly sat down.  My mind whirled like I was getting strapped into a broken amusement park ride and I wasn’t sure I’d be safe.  I always have felt embarrassed and ashamed for being in places like this.

I confronted these same feelings of inadequacy every time I entered this room.  How had my life come to this point?  Why did I have to talk to a psychologist to sort out my deepest problems?  Why couldn’t I figure it out on my own?  I was a smart, successful, rich human being at this point in my life.  But the question that plagued me was, if I was so intelligent and successful, why couldn’t I figure myself out on my own?  How had I lost my life direction so badly that I had to rely on a psychologist’s advice to help me find myself again?

Disappointed? Here’s the Key to Fix it.

I’ve been disappointed the last few months.  I’ve been trying to get pregnant since the middle of summer, but every month, I’ve had to deal with seeing the same disappointment: a negative test result.

I am not going to lie. I thought my dream of becoming a mother would be easier than this.  My expectations of a perfect life led me to believe that the journey to parenthood would happen smoothly.  I didn’t expect to be so disappointed on the path to find my perfect life.

The #1 Skill you Need to Change Your Life

I’m calling this style of writing DJ fiction, because I feel it’s just like a DJ spinning records.  Everything is true, but I mashed together a lot of different eras of my life to create this hybrid form of experience that can be used to help change your life. 

My boss called me into his office.  I didn’t know if I was going to get fired. I had made a huge mistake the week before and tried to cover it up.  But my boss found out on a Friday, and I beat myself up all weekend afraid of what was going to happen next.

I walked into his office.  I tried to avoid eye contact.  He pointed at a chair across from his desk and said, “Sit down.  I need to talk to you about your future here.”

The Way to Wealth: The Simple Way Begins Here

I stalked through the woods as quietly as I could, and I looked for deer watching me through the tree branches.  I stepped over logs and rocks, and stopped to sense for movement deep in the brush ahead of me.  I was out deer hunting, while simultaneously trying to find my way to wealth.

I felt submerged in the overgrowth as I walked beneath the tree tops in my blaze orange hunting jacket.  Money and status didn’t mean anything this deep in nature.  The qualities that made you a wealthy and successful man out here were the quality of your thoughts running through our mind.

Confronting the Dangerous Lies I Tell Myself to Fit In

The first step I took to find my real-self was going on a mission to destroy the lies I tell myself to fit in. The way to wealth is simple:  we must learn from our mistakes, put our revelations into practice, and destroy the poisonous lies we tell ourselves that lead us to become people we’re not.  

I learned a lot about myself this last weekend as I took a trip to Denver, Colorado. My goal was to become more aware of my thoughts than I’ve ever been.  This is the story of how I won against the lies I tell myself, and began to destroy them like the evil snakes that they are.

I traveled to Colorado to attend a family member’s birthday party.  I’ll be honest, seeing my family has always been one of the hardest things for me to do.  I don’t know why, but I always feel desperate to be accepted by them.  They are some of the closest people in my life; who have watched me stumble through the years to find myself; but even in our closeness, I have an internal fear of not being understood by them.
