Fake It ‘Til You Make It

Henry David Thoreau once said that wealth is the ability to fully experience life. I love this quote! It can be interpreted in several different ways, and yet it is true in each and every way.

Often when people think of wealth or when they discuss the concept of wealth, they are hesitant to address the concept of money.

The following is a 44-second Sound Byte from Episode 039 (The Four Pillars of A Good Life – Part V – Stoicism & The Vedas) discussing wealth in genaral and money in particular.

So this game of wealth and prosperity is
going to feed our artha is going to

00:00:06.210 --> 00:00:10.320
feed our Dharma and it's going to feed
it differently because depending on what

00:00:10.320 --> 00:00:15.269
our Dharma is we might need more money
we might need less we might need to save

00:00:15.269 --> 00:00:20.100
our money for a different time we might
need to not save it and do something

00:00:20.100 --> 00:00:24.750
else with it so there's a lot of things
that we can look at is feeding our

00:00:24.750 --> 00:00:29.550
Dharma when it comes to wealth and
prosperity now to begin with I want to

00:00:29.550 --> 00:00:36.210
say that wealth and prosperity can be a
lot of different things so a lot of

00:00:36.210 --> 00:00:41.219
different things it's friendship it's
all these but for this purpose I want to

00:00:41.219 --> 00:00:44.059
say it's money

Even though the concept of money makes people uncomfortable, there are myriads of tips out there on how to acquire more money or more wealth in your life. Anything from saving money by preparing your own lunch to inspirational hustle storytelling.

But nothing is going to get us anywhere new, unless we follow Joseph Campbell’s advice to let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the life that is waiting for us.

The following is a 38-second Sound Byte from Episode 039 (The Four Pillars of A Good Life – Part V – Stoicism & The Vedas) discussing the concept of fake it ’til you make it.

00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:04.740
Now what do you think about some of the
other concepts that I've read before and

00:00:04.740 --> 00:00:10.200
I actually really like them is you want
to do little things that will make you

00:00:10.200 --> 00:00:13.290
feel wealthy -- yes --
you know like tip a little a dollar more

00:00:13.290 --> 00:00:20.010
-- yes -- do things that will make people
smile -- yes -- and yeah it's gonna cost you a

00:00:20.010 --> 00:00:24.359
little bit but it really doesn't cost
you like going out for a cup of coffee

00:00:24.359 --> 00:00:29.699
instead of saving three dollars -- exactly --
 going out and spending some time

00:00:29.699 --> 00:00:36.329
-- exactly -- and so instead of saving 300
dollars a year by not going to a coffee

00:00:36.329 --> 00:00:42.050
shop you're spending that to become
wealthier
