now I want to pass it along to you some
of the philosophies that changed my life forever here’s the first one profits are better
than wages once I understood that I got rich profits are better than wages
nobody taught me that in high school I went to college for a year and a half
and never heard it I’m 25 and broke I’m not destitute I’m
broke too much month at the end of the money is broke and I finally here this
philosophy profits are better than waiting now here’s the phrase that goes
with it wages make you a living which is fine
profits make you a fortune which is super fine and you can leave both fine
and superfine you’ve now got the mechanism and the ways and means to do
that profits are better than wages guess what I taught this in Moscow when i was
teaching capitalism you know the Communists had it all wrong they taught that capitalism was you know
a big company that oppresses its workers I mean it was absolutely ridiculous they
had mentally lost it when they came up with this ridiculous philosophy
communism taught capital belongs to the state not the people and we taught all
these years what capital belongs in the hands of the people not the state that’s
why of course kids should pay taxes because they can be capitalists in all
capital should pick accident I mean you know how long does it take so
profits a bit capitalism better than communism communism said people are too
dumb and stupid to know what to do with capital so you must take capital away
from all the dumb stupid people and give it to the all-wise all-knowing state and
let the state-run everything I mean that was communism and they devastated every
country they touched I’ve been deceived Germany it’s taking a
trillion dollars just to clean up East Germany they’ve already spent 500
billion they got 500 billion more to go I mean every country they touched and
I’ve been all over they devastated them all with their devastating philosophy we
keep capital belongs in the hands of the people that’s where the ingenuity is to
bring goods and services to the marketplace but once I understood this
now it was so incredible profits are better
than wages now when i first was recruited can you imagine what that’s like them to
get up in the morning to go to work on your fortune not to go to work to pay
the rent which is ok work to make a fortune can you imagine what life is going to be
like now here was my first goal when i
started and that was part time I wanted to equal on my profits part-time what i
was earning on my full-time job this is called the magic of part-time it
is so thrilling for people to start working the business part time because
now you can work on profits and it doesn’t take very long if you really concentrate on those 10 12
15 hours a week it won’t be long if you really do it right and learn some of the
skills i’m going to talk about it won’t be long until you can be earning as much
part time working on your fortune as you are full-time working on your job I did
that in less than six months now I’ve got an incredible invitation i found a
way part time to work on my fortune and I’m making as much money at that as i am
on my full-time job would you like to hear my story it was incredible now here was my second
goal to make twice as much money part time working on my fortune as i was
working full time on my job and I reach that in less than a year making twice as
much money part time working on my fortune as I was full-time working on my
job now I’ve got an incredible invitation that won’t quit I found a way through a unique
opportunity to work part time on my fortune and i’m now earning twice as
much money as i am working full time on my job would you like to hear my story
do you imagine anybody would say no I don’t care to hear your story and know
everybody i said that too said Wow yes what are you doing I said I’m glad you asked let me tell
you now when i started making twice as much money part-time and full-time
here’s my dilemma I didn’t want to go full time and why
not go full-time and the reason was because I didn’t want to give up my
electric flying story right it was so powerful nobody could resist
the invitation to at least take a look I didn’t want to give it up and I hung
on for I don’t know how long until it was you know almost insane then finally
finally relax tinley I gave up my full-time job but now you can imagine
the thrill and excitement of going to work full time on my fortune it was incredible here’s the next
philosophy that helped change my life it’s not what happens that determines
your life future it’s not what happens that determines your life future it’s what you do about what happens all
of us are in like a little sailboat and it’s not the blowing of the wind that
determines your destination it’s the set of the sale so Jack this facedown it’s one of the
best to understand kids need to understand it the same wind blows on us
all the wind of disaster the window of opportunity the wind of change the wind
when it’s upside down the wind when its favorable and unfavorable the same wind
blows on us all the economic win the social win the political win the same
wind blows on everybody the difference in where you arrive in
one year three years five years the difference in arrival is not the blowing
of the wind but the set of the same and that’s what learning is all about to set
a better sale this year than last you to set a better sail the first six years of
my economic life i want up broke second six years i wound up rich you say well
the Democrats mr. finally gotten power know no no it was not a political change
here’s what changed the second six years of my economic life it was my philosophy
that change the set of the sale of better thinking correcting the errors of
the past and picking up new disciplines for the future that’s all I had to do at the end of the
first six correct the errors of the past and then pick up some new disciplines
for the future and my total life changed the second six years was totally
different than the first six of my working life and guess who can do that
any body now you can keep on the same path for the next couple of years as you
have the past two but if you wish to if you wish to and maybe everything’s okay
for you and you don’t need to but if you need to make some changes I’m telling you can start doing it today
so that the next two years will be drastically different than the last two
and anybody who wishes to do that can and you can do it between ages 1443 you
can do it between ages 13 and fifty you can do it between ages 60 and 62 any two
years any five years that you wish to drastically change from the previous
five you can do it if you wish to know this isn’t written this is not a law here’s what it’s called opportunity but
if you don’t know you can change if you don’t know you can drastically change
your income change your future change your health change your marriage change
everything if you don’t know that some people then go year after year after
year after year not making much change simply because they didn’t get to the
class they never read the book they never went to the seminar they never
made the discovery they didn’t seek for the knowledge of how could i make my
life better and if you just rock along I’m telling it’s okay anybody can live any way they choose but
I’m here to tell all of you that if you wish to it’s possible to make the next
three years totally different than the last three and all you have to do is
just a few things so we got that one now it’s not the blowing of the wind that
determines your income it’s not the blowing of the wind that determines your
fortune it’s the set of the same and that’s why
we gathered here today maybe I’ve got some ideas that will help you with a
couple of little things about setting the sale of your thinking that might drastically give you
multiplied more benefit the next three years that you’ve gotten in the last
three so it’s not what happens what happens happens to everybody chevron years ago brought me in to talk
to management they said Mr when you travel around the world and you’re
fairly knowledgeable what do you think the next 10 years are going to be like I
said gentlemen i can tell you i do know the right people so they all lean
forward and listen carefully and it’s a gentleman the next 10 years are going to
be about like the last ten the next season after fall is what I promise you
that’s not gonna change after day comes night I promise you that’s not gonna
change here’s how the last 6,000 years reads if you want to make a note of Jim
groans vision of history the last 6,000 years here’s how it reads opportunity
mixed with difficulty it’s going to read like that looks like
for the next six thousand years opportunity mixed with difficult now
sometimes there seems to be more opportunity the difficulty and then
sometimes there seems to be more difficult than opportunity but the mix
isn’t gonna change after expansion comes recession but after recession comes
expansion not to think so c is naive and once you’ve got just a little of this
stuff settled then you know exactly what to do you know exactly what to
anticipate so you can be ready now here’s the next one here’s what it says
for things to change you have to change I was hoping the government would change
in taxes would change and economics would change in my boss would change and
be more generous i wished for everything to change my teacher said no mr. own for
things to change for you you have to change don’t wish it was easier wish you
were better once I understood this altered the course of my life don’t wish it was easier wish you were
better and here’s the big one don’t wish for less problems wish for more Skills
you don’t need less problem you simply need more Skills don’t wish
for less challenge wish for more wisdom accept the challenge because you can’t
grow without a challenge you can’t get rich without a challenge you can’t fly
without gravity you have to understand the challenge but that’s the key is to
now develop wisdom to overcome the challenge don’t wish for less challenge
but more wisdom and then here’s one more philosophy to help change my life
forever you can do the most remarkable things no
matter what happens humans can do the most remarkable things
no matter what happens philosophies that changed my life
