Then did you embrace nothing from them???Tenacity said:I have read just about every major "motivational" book out there, from Think and Grow Rich, to Rich Dad/Poor Dad collection of books, Zig Ziggler's material, The Law of Attraction, and I grew up in the Black Church which predominately preached the Prosperity Gospel which is basically The Law of Attraction with a bible verse tied to it.
So you are preaching to the choir, I would argue that I know way more about the "rah rah" motivational speech aspect of the "abstract" then Guru does lol.
There is a difference between "listening" and "embracing". From your comments in this thread it appears you have simply done the former.
Ok. Well that sounds like basic financials to me.And see this is where the problem lies with this thread in my opinion. So maybe YOU can elaborate for me then?
I laid out my goal by Retirement (65) to have enough in principal to where the monthly interest off that principal in combination with Social Security (what's left of it) will cover ALL of my personal expenses even factoring in Inflation and higher health care/health insurance costs.
My goal was to have this principal be about $1 million but if not, at least $750,000 with about 4% interest being paid on it which is $30,000 a year. Then Social Security I would hope to get $20,000 (at least) from so I would have $50,000 a year to play with BEFORE touching my principal. I would estimate that my personal expenses might be about $40,000 - $45,000 per year by the time I'm at 65.
So that IS my individual path right there that I created, and I would work in my current industry (Commercial Finance) for the next 30 years to get there. I'm not making any kids, not getting married, and I stay in a low cost of living area.
Pay off debt, and cashflow like a mofo then brother. Guru is talking about financials FAR in advance of your current goals. If this is all you seek, then I would suggest this thread would not be for you.
Its not his job to give you ideas lol.Then I asked Guru can he give me ideas to get to $5 million or $10 million then, seeing as though he believes $1 million won't be enough....and he didn't provide any ideas.
If it is not YOUR idea, you wouldn't work hard to complete it anyways.
Well I suppose he's not then. You seem to have your goals and that will suffice for you. So in essence....you are incapable of learning from this thread, because your mind is closed. You are set on your own goal, which is fine.So how is Guru helping me? Obviously if I KNEW how to make $10 million I would already be damn doing it. I have a PLAN to get to the $1 million, Guru says that won't be enough (which I totally disagree with), but YET he won't provide ANY IDEAS on how to acquire $10 million.
But no one is telling me how to make money. I started a business and I am learning on my own. To ask for "concrete directions" on how to be successful is pretty comparable to low income earners asking for government benefits.....just looking for free handouts without having to work for it.
