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?”

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

If you’re reading this, you may be wondering, “How can I change my life?”  Read this story, and you will learn the #1 skill you need to change your life.

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

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.”

Growing Wealth: The Simple Way

I stalked through the forest as quietly as I could.  I was on a deer hunting way up north. I stepped over logs and rocks, and I looked for deer watching me through the tree branches.  I was alone, exploring my thoughts, and searching for the secret to growing wealth.

I felt submerged in the overgrowth as I walked beneath the tree tops in my blaze orange hunting jacket.  I realized money and status didn’t mean anything out here.  The qualities that made you a wealthy were the quality of your thoughts running through your mind.  Growing wealth, I realized, starts here.  

The first step to growing wealth, is growing the thoughts in your mind, I thought.  So what’s the next step?  Continue reading “Growing Wealth: The Simple Way”

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.

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.

3 Ways to Avoid Wasted Time and Life

Waiting until tomorrow to start finding yourself, is like setting today on fire and watching it burn into a pile of ashes in your hand.  The person who procrastinates will not find wealth.  Procrastination leads to a life that means little.  To find wealth, see time as your most valuable possession.

Over the weekend, I, Amanda, text a friend to hang out.  The phone conversation went something like this:
