You see and hear of people making money online all the time so you know it’s possible. You read all the ebooks and join a hundred different programs just to get even the tiniest piece of the pie, yet all of your efforts seem meaningless and you are disappointed time and time again- you just can’t seem to make it work.
Surely you must be doing something wrong, right? So you keep track of what you do in order to find the flaw within you that’s stopping you from succeeding, but no matter how hard you look and how hard you try to learn from other people and from your own past mistakes, the money is just not getting into your wallet. If anything, it’s going out at an accelerated pace! Does that sound familiar?
This is how the system works
Every money making scheme and trick will boil down to just one thing- making someone else pay. The payment doesn’t have to be as direct as cash, it can also be something even more valuable- time. But that’s not important right now. What’s important is that you understand that in order to make money online, someone else has to pay that money to you. You can’t just make money out of thin air (like the government who just prints out more bills if they get in trouble).
When you’ve been in the industry for a while the things you do in order to make someone else pay will become more and more extreme to the point where most of us blatantly lie about a product just to make the sale. I honestly admit that I have done this and I know that if you’ve been in this industry for 10 or more years, chances are you have done it too. Be honest with yourself… when was the last time you bent the truth even a little bit just for the sake of getting another sale? And don’t try to find excuses like “it’s just a marketing strategy”.
Even if you have simply manipulated your victi… *ahem* YOUR CLIENT into believing that the product or service you are selling to them is exactly what they need and they can’t live without it, you have basically lied because more than likely you were selling them something that was totally useless. An ebook about making money? Useless and filled with lies. How about the new pyramid scheme with a cover up “product” to make it look legit? Completely rubbish. Or maybe you’ve asked someone to join a 100% free program? No harm done, right? But did you also consider the fact that the program owner might one day start lying to the person you referred? What if they believe those lies? Think about it… it’s on you.
And you’re doing it all for what?
A piece of paper with fictional value that our community has assigned to it. Did you even know the fact that if everybody on this planet would suddenly decide to go to the bank and withdraw all of their money, the banks would say “sorry, but we don’t have that kind of money available at the moment”? It’s true. The banks have lent out more money than they actually own and the pieces of paper are backed by absolutely nothing other than the value we assign to it (ie. the goods we can get for money) Money used to be backed by gold, but that was a long time ago…
You can’t eat money– you need food. And because of money huge companies are throwing away enough food every day to have all of the people on this planet fill their energy requirements for 24 hours. Why are the companies throwing it all away? They’re scared to sell a day old meat because if someone gets food poisoning they could get sued and they would lose a lot of money in court. (This is just one of many examples).
We are at a special point in our history. Right now we have the technology to grow and produce enough FREE food for everybody, yet we are throwing it all away because we need to sell more in order to make more money. The workers in big supermarkets are prohibited to give homeless people all the food that gets thrown away… can you believe that?
You can’t heat your home with money. A warm home is always nice, but money doesn’t really fit in the picture here either. We have the technology (ie. solar panels and wind turbines to name a few) to produce free energy and heating from our environment. Businesses just don’t want you to realize that because then you wouldn’t pay for any of their crap.
How about luxury, expensive clothing and jewelery? Well, if you’re really that kind of a person why don’t you just glue those hundred dollar bills on your head and walk around like that? I’m sure people will notice how rich you are because showing off- that’s the only reason you wear a 5,000 dollar watch, right?
These examples are just a tip of the iceberg, but if this article has touched you in any way and you are slowly starting to realize that we live in a crazy world where the value system is completely upside down then may I suggest you dig deeper and read this book: “The Best That Money Can’t Buy” by Jacque Fresco. I can assure you it’s a good read. (Yes, it’s my Amazon affiliate link and I do realize the irony here).
If you prefer to watch a free documentary on many of the same subjects then there is a place on the internet called The Reality of Me– a 13 hour long documentary divided into short, easy to grasp chunks providing real solutions to our modern life problems. This documentary will show you that by properly utilizing our current level of technological advancements and knowledge about our environment it’s indeed possible to live in a world where everything is abundant and money is simply obsolete.
So I should just quit money?
