Imagine it’s noon, and you’re about 15 minutes en route to a critical 2:00 p.m. appointment for a job that you need, and really want.
Suddenly, you realize you left your phone at home with the person’s number and address. Based on your prior research, if you used the route recommended by your phone’s map app, it will take about 45 minutes to get to your appointment. If you “wing it” you can hope you’ll get there in time, but if you make even one wrong turn, you might be late for this important meeting.
Would you take the time to go back and get your phone and information or would you wing it?
In George Clason’s book, The Richest Man in Babylon, Arkad is “the richest man in Babylon.” When Arkad’s friends asked him why he was rich and they were not, even though they had grown up together and it didn’t appear he was any more deserving than they, his response was:
“If you have not acquired more than a bare existence in the years since we were youths,
it is because you either have failed to learn the laws that govern the building of wealth,
or else you do not observe them.”
Based on this simple but powerful observation, the underlying philosophy of our company, Arkad’s Lesson, as well as the theme for all the resources found on the company’s ChoosingWealth.com website is summarized in three simple words: Learn and Do.
Could retrieving and using the map be the difference between getting the job or not? Could learning and doing be the difference between becoming and remaining wealthy or not?
If you want to be wealthy, it will likely be up to you to -choose- to employ time and study to make a wealthier future your reality.
Our mission is wealth literacy. The ChoosingWealth.com website was envisioned and designed to help people make more informed lifestyle and investment choices that improve their potential for a wealthy future. The tools and ideas available through the website can help you think, plan, and act on financial choices unique to you.
The Choosing Wealth™ Calculator, the Wealthy by Choice book, and the Choosing your Path to Wealth Calendar and Diary are available as stand-alone products, or bundled together in our Wealth Choosers Club Membership.
A key benefit of the calculator is that it does not force any pre-set assumptions. There are no locked in values that you must use. You use the values and make the assumptions you want. The calculator provides the answers based on your inputs. While the calculator does allow you to make whatever assumptions you choose so you can calculate the results to as many “what if” scenarios as would you like, remember the more unrealistic your assumptions, the more unrealistic your results.
In summary, for people who are beginning or want to enhance their journey toward wealth, ChoosingWealth.com is a knowledge base that includes the following:
