Financial Freedom Myths and Legends

Mey here on a cool Thursday morning bringing to you Financial freedom myths and legends…

…I think I’m still waking up and I have the entire Universe of stories still alive in my head…

…I even did my kungfu warmup this morning, which I haven’t done in years…

…so sit back and enjoy…

The Legend of Midas

…I’m sure you’ve heard of Midas…

…the man who wanted to be wealthy so much that he wanted everything he touched to turn to gold…

…and it finally happened that one day he really could touch everything and it would turn into gold…

…and yet the day that he touched his daughter and she turned to gold was the most tragic day of his life…

…a gold statue of his daughter could not replace her warmth, love and life…

…and he realized that his obsession with gold had cost him the one thing he loved most…

…and so it was the lesson learned that obsession and the love of money to the exclusion of all else brings tragedy…

…remembering why we are alive, what we truly value and actually doing what we love is true wealth…a

The Man With No Clothes

…there was a man who wanted to have the best and nicest clothes for a parade through town…

…he had many tailors come and did not like anything that they brought him until one special tailor arrived and dressed him in the most magnificent imaginary clothes…

…here is the shirt your majesty, woven out of fine silk and gold…

…and the pants were imported from India and blessed in a temple there for all of the Gods to witness…

…and on and on the flourishment about the imaginary clothes…

…the emperor was so impressed by the words of the tailor and the origin of each piece that he gladly wore them, to the approval of his court, and went out in the parade wearing his imaginary clothes…

…everyone cheered the king for fear if they didn’t they would be hanged…

…everyone except one little boy who said “Why is the emperor wearing no clothes?”…

…in the mind we can fashion stories of how we want reality to be…

…however the truth is the only thing that can set you free from delusions and fantasies…

…and no matter how hard you craft your dream world, the truth can be found easily through the pure and innocent eyes of a child…

…Mey here on a humid Halloween evening blogging about 3 Tragic Stories About Money Gained and Lost – And How You Can Learn From Them

…we learn a lot from stories, some would argue that it is the only way we really learn anything…

…well, if you can learn from these 3 tragic stories then it will have been worth my effort in telling them to you…

…all the stories written below are true, however, the names have been changed to mask their identities…

…on this night, we bring up the dead to allow the living to learn how to be better with their money…

The Gambling Housewife

…this story probably gives the story away…

…it starts with a housewife who was bored because her children didn’t need her anymore…

…so she went to the casino, and had a good time…

…she started out on a strict budget, and only went once a week…

…eventually, it turned into a habit, and she ended up getting $20,000 in debt…

…their family had to declare bankruptcy…

…and they moved to a state where gambling was illegal…

…however, the story doesn’t end there…

…she ended up inheriting over a million dollars from her parents…

…and bought two houses, one for a relative and one for her family…

…two years later they were in their home town and she visited her old Casino…

…and even though she had declared bankruptcy earlier…

…that Casino tracked her down, and offered to fly her free of charge to casinos that were out of state…

…so she started gambling again…

…long story short, she ended up gambling away all of her money and her house…

…she took the case to the Supreme Court, and lost…

…the moral of this tragic story, BE VERY CAREFUL OF THE MONEY HABITS THAT YOU MAKE…

The Young Man’s Inheritance

…this was a young man that I actually knew…

…one day he told me the story of his grandparent leaving him $500,000.00…

…and how his parents didn’t want him to have it…

…because they were afraid he would waste it…

…and he used it to buy some cars, and to live a a farm where they grow their own food…

…and in about 5 years, he had spent it all…

…he then could not make payments on the car, so he sold it for parts instead of let the dealer take it back…

…the moral of this tragic story – YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE MINDSET OF A WEALTHY PERSON TO BE WEALTHY…

The Homeless Man Gets A Gift

…I watched a documentary about a homeless man who was given a large sum of money…

…they wanted to see what he would do with it…

…though he was taken to meetings with financial advisors…

…he did not head their advice…

…instead, he bought a pick up truck, and gas for it, and rented a place to stay…

…eventually, he ran out of money…

Moral of the Story – GIVE YOUR MONEY UNWISELY AND IT WILL BE SPENT UNWISELY…
