Quick question for you: If you wanted to pick a bunch of fresh mushrooms, where would you go to find them? A paved city centre? Or a damp forest?
The answer is quite obvious, right? You’d go to a damp forest to pick mushrooms, since it’s a much better environment for them.
It’s easy to look at someone successful and happy and assume, “They are so lucky… they have it so easy!”
Yet, as someone who rose from the ashes of extreme lack and struggle and turned them into millions (both metaphorically and literally), I can firmly say: This is BS.
There’s no doubt you’ve heard many times that the most successful people are skillful investors.
But investing doesn’t only involve money and shares in companies. You spend (waste!), or invest your energy all the freaking time!… And in doing so, you profoundly impact the course of your business and life.
