Part 4: Show me the money
I think I’ve been lucky with money over the years (could be luckier though, lol) but I know I could always do better.
After coming close to losing everything and having things turn completely around within a year, I realized money is a topic we don’t learn nearly anything close to what we should know.
Not in school.
Not from our parents.
Definitely not from Reddit. =p
As much as we like to tell ourselves that money isn’t everything - it is something.
I’ve had a chance to see what it’s like for the uber-wealthy (I’m not one of them...yet) but I’ve been fortunate to see firsthand how they live and the difference in how they think and behave.
The Money Buddha's 4 Pillars of Wealth
It helped me form the framework for building and managing your wealth, what I call the "The Money Buddha's 4 Pillars of Wealth" (Yes, it's another 4 Pillar framework within the Brain Buddha's Manifesto: The 4 Pillars of Leading the Best Life Possible").
I don't want to make this too long so I won't delve into the Money Buddha's Wealth Manifesto here, you can read it separately here.
The core pillars are:
- Having a money mindset
- Developing valuable skills
- Accumulating income-generating assets
- Money management
These are the four guiding principles for wealth.
If you've made it this far, congratulations!
And a big "Thank You" for reading.
By now, you'll have read about what I call:
The "4 Pillars of Leading the Best Life Possible":
- A healthy mind
- A healthy body
- Healthy relationships
- Healthy finances
That's what this manifesto is about.
If this resonates with you and you want to share in my journey in applying these "4 Pillars" to everyday life, then I invite you to join my "Daily Brain Buddha" email newsletter.
