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?”

Money and Investing Super Powers = Jedi and Ninja Wealth

I remember when I used to feel inadequate about money and investing.  I felt like I was floating in the middle of a dangerous ocean, with no wind in my sails, and I lost the directions to get home.

It was a helpless, scary feeling, because I desperately wanted to understand money and investing, but I didn’t know where to start.  I imagined life would be easier if I understood how to grow money from money, but getting that knowledge felt so elusive.

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.

Wealthy or Rich? Is there a Difference?

There is a massive difference between being rich and being wealthy.  They are as different as living with, and without a heart.  They may look like identical experiences on a spreadsheet, or from the outside looking in, but being rich and being wealthy, are two drastically different experiences.

I can remember the moment when I first noticed the difference between the two lifestyles, and the moment I chose the goal of building wealth in my life.

I was at a Christian networking event I had been invited to.  I am a sales person in my day job, so after engaging in small talk with a few strangers and looking for business, I found a table and waited for the speaker to take the stage.

7 Wealth Building Tips I Learned from Football

I fell in love with NFL football 15 years ago, and it has inspired my own path to building wealth.  Once I understood the mentality, strategy, and toughness it takes to win games on Sundays, I was hooked.  A football game is much more than mindless buffalo-sized men running into each other.  It is a beautiful chess match with human beings that move like coordinated pieces. Building wealth, like football, is a thinking person’s game.  Here are seven secret wealth building tips I have found hidden inside the game of football:
