THE THREE PILLARS
When friends first asked me what this project was about, I would say it’s about “living a good life”. There are many aspects to living a good life and for each one of us, these aspects may be a bit different. But everything centers around the same thing – ourselves as individuals in the world filled with other individuals.
In the book Financial Abundance [link to survey to download], I wrote about how things should be as simple as possible before you add to them.
You can’t force others to change, you can only show them the way and maybe give them the tools.
Everything I write here was initially written for myself, to help me think and clarify. I was blessed to have been given many tools as a child. I thirsted for knowledge of all types and my mother always provided me the books, lessons and teachers. As an adult my task has been to take all of this information and put it together in a way that is easy to implement. I did this first for myself and now has come the time to share it with you.
There are three pillars that should be worked on to be an independent human who does not simply take up space. I do not mean that life should be devoted to the rest of the world. But imagine if the world had only people who depend on others. The world would end immediately. At the very least, we need to be independent humans.
What are the basic requirements to be independent?
To be independent you need to have some basic financial stability. This does not mean you must be an entrepreneur, startup expert, etc. It simply means that whatever you decide to do, you should not have to rely on charity for your day to day. What does it take to be financially abundant/ financially independent?
In Yiddish, a mensch is a person of honor and integrity. It is someone of noble character. The idea is not to go out of your way and be a philanthropist. It simply means being honorable in your day to day dealings. What does it take to be a good person in your day to day dealings?
