Here I wish to begin to give you some appetizer on the laws of money. Let’s start the journey:
This is the First Law of Money that I wish to expound with you today. The first instinct of uninformed men when it comes to money is to spend it and that is the proof that they are uninformed. It is also a proof why they will never really become wealthy. Some people even say, what is money meant for, if not to be spent.
People who understand money and its laws will tell you that when you are given a hundred dollars, you are only permitted to spend a hundred dollars when the original hundred dollars has made at least three times its original value. So if you are given a hundred US dollars and you have not found a way to multiply it or put it to work, such that it will produce for you three hundred dollars, you are not entitled to spend the original hundred dollars. If you do that and indiscriminately spend the money that comes to your hand, it shows that you will never really become wealthy.
Many people tell me, how then do I pay my bills and meet my needs? To the informed that is easy; out of the hundred dollars that came to your hand, put thirty dollars to work such that in the next few months, maybe a year or more, that thirty percent keeps on working for you. Because a part of that hundred dollars keeps on working for you, it is returning the original hundred dollars and more to your pocket. I am talking about increase and multiplication.
The mistake poor people make is that they see rich people buy and use flashy stuff, and then they want to copy them. The poor man only sees the luxury of the rich, not the laws that brought him there. Since the poor does not know or is aware of the mechanism that is working for the rich, he is not aware that the rich man is only spending after many returns have come back on his dollar. Rich people don’t spend the original capital they have, they only spend the overflow.
On the other hand, the poor man sees the luxury of the rich and rushes to become like him and throws away the initial meager amount of money in his hands. Some people even do worse, they don’t just spend the little money in their hands, and they go ahead and borrow or spend in installment what they have not yet made. That way these people perpetually not only become poor, but slaves to the rich people since they have to keep on going to work for them so as to pay for their debt. Meanwhile, those rich men that the poor men are copying already built companies, factories, stores, where the poor man eventually goes to spend the little money he has in his hands. So as soon as the rich men pay their poor workers their salaries, they have already built outlets where the poor man immediately rushes to go spend this money, returning this money to the pocket of the rich.
A good help in the service of the rich is the advertisement industry. This becomes an effective manipulator of the poor man to go and part with his hard earned money, back to the pocket of the rich. Thereby, leaving the poor poorer and the rich richer.
