Rule 4: Keep it under your hat like Sayyu Dantata

Sayyu Dantata, Founder MRS Oil

Now you have
embarked on a new journey, a new direction, it might be worth keeping it under
your hat. There may come a time when you will need to discuss what you are
doing with money mentors (see Rule 64 later) but for the moment, don’t
broadcast what you are doing.

There are several reasons for this:

• Other people’s
opinions can often be negative and this can put you off.
• If everyone is
doing it, there may be less room for you.
• There’s no
need to give away all your best ideas.
• Having other
people discussing your business amongst themselves is never good for you.
• You don’t want
to be seen as preaching or trying to convert people to your way of thinking.
• No one else
really wants to know what you’re up to – if they ask how you are, reply with a
simple ‘Fine’ rather than a lengthy explanation of what you are doing.
• Its nice
having a secret – gives you a warm, smug, glowing feeling. If you go round
broadcasting what you’re doing, there will be people around you who will get
jealous and will do pretty well anything to put you off. After all, you are
saying goodbye to them in a way. 
“The interesting bit is that even if you did go
telling everyone, they’re unlikely to do anything about it. Most people would
rather watch television than drag themselves out of their pit of poverty I am
only thinking of you when I say keep it under your hat”.

You are proclaiming that the old you, the old lifestyle,
isn’t good enough any more and you are off to pastures new. Of course they are
going to be unhappy about that. So keep it under your hat. That doesn’t cost
anything or require you to do anything.
Let this be our little secret. Carry on learning and
practicing the Rules but just don’t go telling all and sundry – no matter how
much you think they might benefit from reading this book. Leave a copy around
by all means of course. The interesting bit is that even if you did go telling
everyone, they’re unlikely to do anything about it. Most people would rather
watch television than drag themselves out of their pit of poverty I am only
thinking of you when I say keep it under your hat. Anyone who gets religion of
any sort needs to keep a tight lip on it. People really hate being preached at,
lectured at, encouraged to think about their lifestyle or told that what they
are doing isn’t good enough. Gaining prosperity is one of those things you do
privately, clandestinely, surreptitiously Not that there is anything wrong,
just that it’s best done alone.
