Where is 'More'?

There comes a point in time.

We feel things have to change, things have become unsustainable, micro-managing a stressful and reactionary existence day after day in both personal and professional life, with everyone wanting more of something.

Let’s hope it’s not more of the same!

The phone call.

I recently got a call from a telemarketer selling financial planning. Quite often their strategies are very convincing. They are constantly coming up with innovative ways for us to get more from our investments. However, quite often the market doesn’t cooperate.

Meanwhile, many of my colleagues are watching helplessly as their retirement investments are seriously dwindling.

I asked him my favorite question; “Where does ‘more’ come from?” There was silence.

Then I asked him. “Do you agree that ‘less’ comes from making the wrong decisions?” He said, absolutely ‘yes.’

Then he asked me, “What are your strategies, where do you invest?”

My primary investment is in having a clear mind. This puts me in a position to have clarity preceding my decisions and actions, ‘not’ following them. This helps me make better decisions. This is where more comes from.
