Hello and welcome to my mini site.
I have created this site to detail how I have become obscenely rich. I am doing this for historical record and to help others to follow what I have done so that they can also become obscenely rich.
I am not rich now. In fact I am not even close. I am writing this to document the process as it goes along, rather than at the end, so that other would-be entrepreneurs can follow along if they choose, and also to record more accurately the learning process, highs and lows of my endeavours and so that nothing is forgotten along the way. I also hope it will serve as a way to distil my thoughts and help self guide myself in pursuit of my goal.
Obscenely rich will mean different things to different people. For some the word obscene implies there is something wrong or hideous, but that is not what is implied in this case. What I mean by obscenely rich, is having so much material wealth that money is no longer part of the question of what I want to do with my time here on earth. I also find some humour in the name as I visualise myself with piles of cash.
The question stops being ‘what can I afford to do today’, to ‘what do I want to do today’.
For different people to achieve this goal would take different amounts of money. It all depends on two things..
1. What makes you happy and
2. How big is your imagination
For me I have a pretty big imagination. What makes me happy deserves an entire blog of its own. I have attended workshops on ‘what is happiness’ and done a lot of soul searching into that question. One of the things that keeps arising, is that a lot of my time is always spent in the pursuit of material wealth, mostly to survive. Things like paying bills, rent etc.
This has mostly been to the detriment of my happiness. So the first step and all subsequent steps towards my goal MUST make me happy.
AT NO TIME IN MY PURSUIT OF MATERIAL WEALTH WILL I DO THINGS THAT MAKE ME FEEL UNHAPPY
Therefore, if the goal contains only steps that make me happy, the goal becomes not an end point, but a way of life. The goal is the journey.
There are a lot of things that can be improved in our society. One of the reasons I want to become so rich, is to be able to fund large projects to improve our lives and the earth as a whole. So many times I have thought in my life, if I had a million pounds, I would sort this or that problem out. Well, soon I will be able to.
Oh one more thing, you may wonder why I started with ‘how I became rich’ when I am not yet rich. It is because I have absolutely no doubt, no doubt whatsoever that I will achieve this aim and this blog will in fact be a chronicle of how this came about.
I hope you enjoy my blog.
