The Wealthiest Place In The World

There are but a few wealthy places in the universe:

#1 God’s Kingdom in Heaven is the very top of the list

The bible says:

  • He owns everything in the world, the animals, birds, the flowers – everything in the world (Psalm 50)
  • He created the world (Genesis 1)
  • Heaven has gates made of pearl and the streets were of pure gold (Revelation 21:21)
  • Only His Son, Jesus Christ, can bring true salvation to us

John 14:6 Amplified Bible (AMP) – Jesus said to him, “[a]I am the [only] Way [to God] and the [real] Truth and the [real] Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

And that is true pricelessness.

#2 Our Mind, Heart & Spirit

We are created in the likeness, image and spirit of God, the Ultimate Architect and Creator, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He created everything in the world and universe, and because we are made in His image, we too share the same ability:

To imagine, visualize, create, to bring things to pass

We are able to bring whatever we want to pass – all we need is to believe, do and repeat until we get there.

What our mind can conceive, we can achieve, and this was shared by Walt Disney. It is just slightly lower than God’s ultimate, because God can speak and it’s immediately done (refer to Genesis, where God spoke the word, and it came to pass; and Jesus, where He speaks healing to people, set captives free, killing the barren olive plant etc).

Our ability to create has different tiers.

  1. Lower and simple tiers, we can do things here and now. An example is wanting to eat something, and we can cook/buy it on the spot. This is simple low hanging fruits, and don’t require much effort or faith.
  2. Middle-level involves things that are slight stretch, but still reachable goals with more time involvement. An example is wanting to save say $1000, get a promotion – things that are just slightly more difficult than simple tiers, taking more time and effort, but usually can be achieved in less than 6 months to a year.
  3. Higher-level creation may is slightly more complex. It may involve multiple individuals, and takes more time, between 1 year or more. It can be saving $10,000 or more, losing/gaining 5-10 kgs of weight, starting your own business, publishing your own books etc
  4. Ultimate-level creations will be complex to very complex goals, involving groups of individuals/companies, and taking a lot more concerted cooperation and communication, and may take 3-5 or more years. It can be development projects that cost 7-10 figures, getting a spouse, etc.

These are the simplified Tiers Of Creation that we all have the innate ability to create.

#3 The Graveyard

Third on the list of the wealthiest place on earth, is the graveyard.

A little morbid, but it’s true. Point #3 is basically and extension of #2, where we have so much potential and ability to create…but what happens is that so many of us,

  • get/are too busy to do what is truly inside of us
  • get/are too scared to do what is truly inside of us
  • get/are too scarred to do what is truly inside of us

And the “truly inside of us” thing?

To me, it refers to our

  • Inner Greatness
  • Inner Genius
  • Book/Song/Creation Inside

We all have our inner greatness, genius, book, song, teachings – whatever that God had placed in our hearts, souls and minds.

But many fail to do. Many forget who they are and these inner greatness and inner genius.

Let’s not live like that.

Let’s not live in fear.

Yes, I get that we have to put roof over our head, and food on the table.

Yes, we need to live.

But we cannot live like animals or mindless creatures. And neither can we live in darkness by lying, killing, cheating one another (like how I’d come across individuals and organizations who had lied and manipulated us to get what they want, even to the point of rewriting history).

Today, choose life and choose to improve yourself and your life.

  • Call your loved ones to tell them you’re thinking of them, and if there’s anyone you hadn’t spoken to because of distance or argument, call them. Tell them you thought about them and you wish them well. Do this now.
  • Forgive yourself for all the mistakes you had made before. It’s ok, that’s how we learn isn’t it? What’s more important is we don’t continue to make the same mistakes.
  • Stop complaining and stop watching television or netflix.
  • Save at least 25% of your take home salary. Put it into a high-interest bank account with no debit/ATM card, and let it accumulate. If you don’t have a job, focus on getting a job first.
  • Learn to build a profitable business on the internet. I’m an active member at Wealthy Affiliate and what’s good about it is that you can sign up for free to learn. Their free program is free forever, no credit card required. Read my Wealthy Affiliate Review here.
  • Walk for at least 60 minutes a day, by stopping further from work and home. Drink 8 glasses of plain water daily. Read a book a week.
  • Be kind and do good, with at least a random act of kindness daily.

And see how your life and happiness start to grow =)

Heck It, I’m Gonna Write BOTH

Both refers to:

  1. Passive Income Freedom Lifestyle Entrepreneurship
  2. Growth+Mastery Mindset & Habits

Passive Income Freedom Lifestyle Entrepreneurship

I added the word “Freedom” in, which to me, refers moreso to the flexibility, freedom and options associated with surplus of passive income, and it’s one of the core focus I have, which is to build a lifestyle that has flexibility and freedom, funded by passive income entrepreneurship. Of course, by providing solid value to clients.

Entrepreneurship, both physical (offline, real world) and online/internet businesses is to me, the #1 approach to build more income that can and will help me build a passive income freedom.

Here in this topic I will write and cover all about offline and online business, including:

  • Freelancing
    • How to start a side business of freelancing and earn extra income immediately
    • How to get more quality and high-value clients
    • And how to progress to physical business but I recommend moreso to…
  • Build online businesses that we care about that delivers good value to clients and get paid well. This will cover
    • Affiliate marketing and kindle ebook publishing
  • A small section will be dedicated to passive income investing, where one can invest into different passive income vehicles and instruments including income stocks and index funds; as well as “retiring early but sort off”

The other section, is the Growth+Mastery Mindset & Habits, is the other side of the coin.

There is no way anyone can become successful, build passive income lifestyle freedom, be productive, be happy – whatever it is, without a sound working framework of Growth+Mastery Mindset & Habits, there will be no success or passive income. The reason for this is that success isn’t sudden avalanche or luck – it’s built on layers and layers on small success on things that matter.

It’s the growth, mindset, tenacity, persistence, personal development and habits that embodies them that allows us to achieve all the dreams we have about our best life or best business or best spouse or best family – whatever we can think of.

If you can dream it, you can do it – Walt Disney

I took a walk back to memory lane to reminisce, recall and remember where I came from:

  • Remembering that 12 years ago today (2008), I pulled the plug and quit my job to start my freelancing journey as a locum occupational therapist, leading me to instantly increase my total take home from $2000 a month to $4800, and at the same time, I actually work less (from 50+ hours a week to 40-44 hours a week) due to less admin and I was instantly happier due to less politics and more straightforward approach to work
  • Realizing that I had spent tens of thousands of dollars to learn and improve and optimize my understanding and game of freelancing, therapy business, and then onto online business, kindle publishing, their tools, books and passive income streams (the passive income lifestyle)
  • Remembering that one of my biggest pain points is that I HAVE to be away from my kids for a good 8-10 hours for 6 days a week. This one typically hurts me the most. And worse is that I am actually perpetuating this problem because the more I do this, the more my kids will believe and think that that is entirely normal. And I don’t want that

So that’s why based on the culmination of my experiences, past, looking at where I am today, and where I want to go and be in the future, I choose:

  1. Passive Income Freedom Lifestyle Entrepreneurship
  2. Growth+Mastery Mindset & Habits

Freelance First

I still believe in the world of offline business and freelancing, which is where I started my entire business journey, and from there, I kept leveling up to start a physical business location, failing for 3x until my fourth physiotherapy and hand clinic started to make good sustainable profits – that’s why I believe for anyone who is struggling with money and their life right now, they need to first earn more, by freelancing.

Then with the income and savings from freelancing, you will have more options, which is either to quit your job / fire your boss to freelance more or to start an offline physical business location but I prefer for you to have a stable job + side income AND then take the side income to pay off whatever you need to pay off, and take some money to learn how to build an online business (the direction I’m headed and taking).

You see, I believe in online businesses and the internet, because

Online and internet businesses are the way of the future.

Look at companies like:

  • Amazon – purely online
  • Uber / Lyft / Grab – purely online (Grab’s moving offline too)
  • Facebook
  • Google
  • Shoppee
  • Lazada

…and a whole slew of them. It’s the way of the future. Even if it’s not, I want it to be MY and YOUR way of the future. Other benefits including and most importantly to me, is that I can spend time with people, projects and causes that I care about.

Which of course, will include my beloved wife and kiddos and projects such as Phoenix Rehab, family etc.

That’s one of my strongests “whys” ie my personal reasons to do well and have more time with them (and to have them in the first place, as it’s kinda tough to have families and kids when one has little to no money).

I don’t know bout you, but I do think we may have similar interests, and if you want to free yourself and your time more, then you will also have to consider to start an online business to supplement your income and ideally, free up yourself from vicious politics and 10-14 hours grueling work days, away from stuff and loved ones that truly matter.

I’m happy to introduce Wealthy Affiliate to you, which you can try for free (there is a forever-free membership version) and you can opt to upgrade to a premium member of USD 359 per year. I think you can try the free version first, and have a feel of it.

It sounds sexy and easy, but it’s work. It’s building an actual business that provides value for customers, and there is a learning curve. Most of the time, it takes about 6 months to 18 months to earn your first dollar, but done well, it can replace your income, your boss and give you options and flexibility. It just takes a lot of work at least in the beginning.

I recently ported all my domains and online sites to them because

  • sites with them are very fast
  • it’s easier to have everything in one platform
  • they have very fast and good support
  • they have very supportive like-minded network/peers (important for mastermind and growth)
  • and most important, they have a strong university/teaching to help you earn your first $1000 online.

Wealthy Affiliate has been around since 2005, and I’ve been a member since 2015 – I have had a roller-coaster experience in the earlier stage and especially with comparing with Solo Build It (below, and see the comparison), but I’ve since come to the conclusion that:

Best of all, there is a free-for-life basic membership option, sign up for free here, no credit card required – see you on the inside. My profile on Wealthy Affiliate is nigelchua (my name of course haha)
