Purpose of Life, and How to Create Wealth

My name is Bill, and my wife is Amanda. Our adventure to wealth began with a very simple dream: to find the purpose of life.

During my 20’s, my purpose of life is all I really thought about.  The first time the thought appeared in my mind, I knew it was a journey worth devoting my life to.  I became obsessed with trying to understand what the purpose of life was really about.  I spent all my time building my mind; reading, writing, and experimenting; and improving my character, so that when the adventure to find my purpose finally came to me, I would be ready like a perfectly prepared ninja heading out on their first mission. 

But a strange thing happened as I learned, evolved, and grew: On the journey to discover my purpose of life, I accidentally discovered how to create wealth.

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. It felt like financial wisdom was reserved for a select club.

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.
