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 want.
Suddenly, you realize you left your phone at home with the person’s number and address. If you use your phone’s map app, it will take about 45 minutes to get to your appointment. Or, you can continue and hope you’ll get there in time, but if you make even one wrong turn you might be late for this important appointment.
Would you take the time to go back and get your phone and directions, 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 and WealthLiteracyInstitute.com websites is summarized in three simple words: Learn and Do.
Could going back for your phone and directions be the difference in getting the job or not? Could learning and doing be the difference between becoming and remaining wealthy, or not?
Wing it, or wealth literacy?
If you want wealth to be your reality then choose to learn and do the things to accomplish that goal.
Our mission is to enhance your wealth literacy. The ChoosingWealth.com and WealthLiteracyInstitute.com websites were envisioned and designed to help people make more informed money and lifestyle choices that improve their potential for a wealthy future. The tools and ideas available through the websites 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 want to enhance their journey toward wealth literacy and a wealthy future, ChoosingWealth.com plus WealthLiteracyInstitute.com form a knowledge base that includes the following:
