Is True Freedom Only a Foolish Ideal?

Centuries ago, the famous philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau stated; "Man is born free; and everywhere he is in chains. One thinks himself the master of others, and still remains a greater slave than they."

While you may think things have changed, or should have changed, since the time of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, these words, however, remain as true today as in the time when Jean-Jacques Rousseau first spoke them.

I am not a part of the corporate world and even though I once was a part of the corporate world, I am thankful that I am no longer a part of this structure, or of the system.

Before I go further, I must state; this article is on the topic of freedom and is not intended as an attack on the corporate world.

I know many people who are a part of the corporate world and although they consider themselves to be well-paid and leading comfortable lives, almost all of them have complained at some time about their long working-hours their working environment, that they haven't been promoted or they haven't received a pay-raise for a long time, that their work is often boring and monotonous and they do not like their boss.

How To Succeed In Business

If you would like to know how to succeed in business, there is a principle that should be followed. A principle that constantly proves successful and almost always guarantees success.

I recently came across a blog on WARRIOR FORUM. The blog itself was fairly old, however, the message it was putting across is timeless.

The message put across in the blog wasn’t foreign to me, as I constantly do my best to stick to this principle. This article, though, was not written with the intention to promote the blog, or myself, rather to focus on the main message, or principle, of the particular blog.

We live in a competitive, consumer-oriented society.

Let me first focus on the word, competitive.

The Best Paths To Wealth Creation

The paths with the best potential for wealth creation have remained the same for many centuries. 

It is no coincidence that the wealth created by royalty, merchants, business tycoons and entrepreneurs of the past, have followed a similar, although, not necessarily the same, path as the wealth creators of the present day. 

In many ways, the wealth creators of the present day, have learnt and followed the lessons given to them, by the wealth creators of the past. 

One of the major differences, however, is that the present-day wealth creators have the added leverage and advantage of technology. It is, therefore, far easier for anyone to build wealth, today, than it was in the past. 

Although all of the paths to wealth creation, I believe, are of equal importance, I will, however, be starting off, with the path of property.

What is the best wealth definition?

The best wealth definition, is not the most commonly accepted definition of wealth. 

Most people define wealth, purely by the amount of money and valuable material possessions that one has acquired. This definition of wealth, would be in line with the standard dictionary definition of the word “wealth”. 

Here is how the Oxford English dictionary defines “wealth”; wealth n. money and valuable possessions; possession of these; a great quantity. 

Judging purely by this definition, most people would be right to believe that money and valuable possessions alone, would amount to wealth, however, this is a very narrow and constrained way of viewing wealth.

How would one best define a wealth creator?

One of the most important personal traits of a wealth creator is that they have integrity, in other words, their words and their actions go hand-in-hand.

It is because of this personal trait that they can always be trusted and are trustworthy.

Unfortunately, most people say one thing and do another, that is, their words are not backed up by their actions. It is, therefore, understandable why most people are not wealth creators.

You cannot be a wealth creator unless you have integrity.
