Wealth Beyond MoneyWealth Beyond Money
My brother and I were visiting our father. We enjoyed each other’s company and a good conversation.
“I used to go to work, do my set routine, day after day,” my brother was saying. “Maybe over the years I’d get a promotion. Then I’d go along doing the same thing day after day after day. Eventually, I’d get another promotion. But basically, I’d do the same thing, every day, day after day. I was specialized. I’d go to work, come home, go to work, and I was none the wiser for what really went on in the upper echelon of the company I worked for or in the government itself. I was caught under the lid.
“The way out from under that lid was integrated knowledge. The lid was specialization — nothing more. When I began to acquire more and more knowledge about the business at work through the Self-Leader System, I easily removed myself from under that lid. Over the past few weeks, I’ve begun to build momentum that can’t be stopped. With that momentum has come excitement and a steady ascent to wealth. …Now I love my life!”
“Eric,” I said, “now that you’re integrating, you’re learning how business really works. As you grow and take bigger and bigger bites of integrated knowledge, you’ll realize, ‘Hey, I’m also learning how the economy works. I’m learning how society really works. …Hey, I’m learning how our government works.’ Unlike most ordinary, good working people, you know what’s going on — you’re discovering the dishonesty, laziness, and corruption in our corporate and political offices.”
“As you learn more specifically about what’s going on in the powerful upper echelons,” our father added, “you’ll learn more and more about the world of money and power. You’re no longer caught in a specialized routine with blinders, Eric. No, you’re beginning to put together and see things that the masses never see. You’ll become a threat to our parasitical-elite leaders, all right. You’ve already begun to expose the hoax of our politicians and regulatory bureaucrats. And you’ve begun to expose the hoax in the upper echelons of corporate America.”
“So, the political big-business leaders will do their best to suppress you and push you back down,” I said. “Don’t let them. Management may increasingly ignore you, or worse, discourage you. But DO NOT STOP. KEEP GOING. Now that you’ve discovered integrated thinking and how to rise in your company, relentlessly keep going — keep acquiring integrated knowledge, and no one at work can stop you.”
“Politicians, bureaucrats, and lawyers also will do their best to shut down the rising integrated thinker,” our father warned. “They don’t want their hoaxes exposed. Their laws, regulations, and litigation make the integrated thinker’s road full of deadly land mines.”
“The Great Replacement Program will start to replace our destructive political leaders with legitimate first-generation-type market-business leaders to clear the road for everyone,” I said.
“Subsequently, prosperity will become available to everyone,” Eric added. …The three of us continued talking late into the night.
The Golden World (Inside Secret)
I got home late. I entered quietly, careful not to wake my wife and kids. The clock read 12:17 a.m. I sat down at the kitchen table, opened my diary, and wrote my final page about the Self-Leader System:
“In tomorrow’s Golden World, happiness will constantly replenish itself; it will fill us up and overflow. We’ll have to let that happiness and excitement flow out somewhere, and we’ll let it overflow on our spouses and families. When we enter the Golden World, romantic love and family love will rise to new levels.
“Society’s jack-in-the-box explosion into the Golden World will happen through the Great Replacement Program. But before society rises as a whole, people can rise on an individual basis through my seven-step Self-Leader System.
“The Golden World is just right above us.
We can just about reach up and touch it! Imagine, no more financial stress. But 118 Greatest Kept Secret Of All Time we are strapped in wheelchairs by our leaders, and we are sinking with the world around us! Yet, we are so close to the Golden World. Integrated knowledge — a new way of thinking — is all we need to unstrap ourselves and rise…even as the world around us falls.
“I will tell all my friends, as I did my brother, to simply: Start tomorrow at work. Discover a new concept: integrated power. Rediscover the joy of learning as you educate yourself about the whole business. A world of new knowledge surrounds you, just sitting there for the taking, just waiting for you to absorb it. As you begin learning different aspects of the business and acquiring integrated knowledge, you will feel your power grow. As your power and importance grows, your promotions become unavoidable. A point in time will come when you feel total control over your destiny — a destiny of success. At that moment, you will feel a surge of happiness. That surge of happiness never goes away! That surge of happiness may actually last for the rest of your life! …Yes, I will tell everyone.”
I closed my diary. I went upstairs and looked at my children sleeping. I smiled and just stood there watching their sweet faces. At that moment, my love for those precious treasures overwhelmed me. They’re what really matters, I thought. Filled with fatherly love, I went to bed. My wife surprised me when she slipped under my arm. I smiled, closed my eyes, and indulged in my own happiness.
