Rule 7: Understand that wealth is a consequence, not a reward

Fifi Ejindu, International business woman

If you work hard
at making money, you stand a better chance of becoming rich. You have to accept
that money is a payment given to you for clever thinking and hard work. The
harder and smarter you work, the more you will earn. You don’t get given the
money by a committee who examine whether you deserve it or not, whether you
have been good enough or not. It is a direct consequence.

We often look at
someone who has money and make all sorts of value Judgments about whether they
deserve it or not. We all do it. I was reading about Calvin Ayre – the Internet bookie – who has grown very rich indeed
running online gambling. He has something like 16 million customers in the US.

“He has grown rich exploiting an alleged US law
loophole whereby what he does is alleged to be illegal but he isn’t in the
country to commit any crime. Do we judge him? I don’t. I study this information
to see if I could make use of it”.

The U.S. Department
of Justice isn’t very happy about this and wants to put him down. Ayre isn’t a US citizen and doesn’t
reside there. You can read all about him on the www.Forbes.com website (home of the really wealthy folk). If it
isn’t your home page it jolly well ought to be. You are in this to be wealthy,
which means Understanding where wealth comes from.
Back to Ayre. He
has grown rich exploiting an alleged US law loophole whereby what he does is
alleged to be illegal but he isn’t in the country to commit any crime. Do we
judge him? I don’t. I study this information to see if I could make use of it.
What might be wrong is the gambling. But I am aware that his
Consequence of
hard work has been lots of money.
I was watching a
TV programme the other day about a chap who cleans and polishes cars for rich
celebs and such like. He charges £5000
for car washing. Mind you, this does include polishing. Now is his money a
reward or a consequence? I don’t think he would see it as a reward. It’s the
price he sets, and customers pay him because he is the best car cleaner in the
world. The consequence of his business idea, skill and effort is to be very
well paid.
