Where do you start with money? You know you have to have some! Without it - you miss out.
Yes, you will miss out on so much. It could be argued, that some societies are set out in such a way, so that the poor are not as deprived as they used to be. But whatever advantage society tries to give you, it can never be facilitated without MONEY. Somebody somewhere is paying the cost.
So you will miss out. The state can help to an extent. Grants, charities, social security can all assist if you ask. But at some point the word is going to POINT the FINGER directly at you!

Yes, that's the word. You will eventually be expected, if you are in sound mental health, to take control of your finances and manage them within your capabilities. Your income, your expenses, your losses, your gains.
No, it's not the BIG LOTTERY finger of LUCK. It's the accusing and decisive, ever enquiring finger of blame or acclaim. You can choose your combination, you pay your price, but you do get to affect the outcome to varying degrees.
Take it or leave it. RESPONSIBILTY is your's to exercise to the best of your ability. If you try to leave it, you had better have some great insurance or a brilliant lawyer! Either way - you will pay eventually.
Choosing to Win or Lose with Money
Can you choose to win or lose with money?
Who would choose to lose money? Surely that's something everyone avoids? Well, yes and no. We all accept that somethings must be consumed and paid for and the gain or benefit isn't always immediately obvious, for example - when we eat to maintain our health or body. But at other times we also accept that there are risks in the choices we make which will have a potential or possible outcome - a degree of uncertainty. When you make a choice involving potential outcomes, we are taking a risk. Big or small - it's a risk.
Well, only you can decide what degree of risk and certainty you want in your financial life.
Choosing to invest in education without a definite outcome, is a risk. It's a gamble on your own potential with an element of venturing into the unknown. We become our own fortune-tellers, creating a story in our own minds to guide our unconscious minds into a new arena. How persuasive we are at creating a convincing story, is dependent on how fertile and receptive our unconscious and conscious minds are.
Choosing to increase the odds of winning, means taking responsibilty for managing the variable factors which affect how we earn money, spend it, manage it and grow it and how much we are prepared to lose along the way.
So where do you start? Well, only you can decide what degree of risk and certainty you want in your financial life. But either way, accepting as much responsibilty as your capable of handling, will allow you to pursue your potential in every area of your life.
