Theyll tell you about lanes that are fast. Theyll tell you about roads and dynamics. Theyll tell you about Babylonian shepherds and Hawaiian fathers.But theyll all also contain a grain of bullshit. And that bullshit sticks to the lens of your mind and makes a massive blindspot.Us rich folks have shared some – no, many – perhaps even most of our secrets for creating and maintaining wealth with you. But what we -- theyve -- also done is carefully insert a grain of bullshit in each book and seminar, just to trip people up, just to throw people off the scent.I am not kidding.Ever notice how one book encourages entrepreneurship but denigrates saving?Ever notice how another book encourages saving but denigrates trying to earn big bucks?Ever notice how some books are all action and no thought?...While other books are all thought and no action?Its not an accident. Its a deliberate attempt to keep you down. To throw you off the trail. To give you juuuust enough to have at least a vague idea, enough to feel like you know something, but not enough to seal the deal. Youre in the right zip code- youre in the general area- but youre not at the exact address.Have you ever used a phone?Of course you have.What did you notice?You can be 90% right – get 9 out of the 10 digits in a phone number right – but if you leave out just one digit or get just one digit wrong, then you cant successfully call your friend, no matter how much you love her. You cant order pizza or Chinese food, no matter how hungry and/or stoned you are.You cant call your friend until you get all the digits in her phone number right.You cant open a combination lock until you get all the numbers right.Rich folks have been afraid of competition, afraid of scrutiny, afraid of jealousy, so we – they – havent given out all the digits, all the codes. They havent given out enough information for you to get the job done.Until now.I will do what none of my fellow rich have dared do until now. I will tell you exactly how to gain and maintain wealth. No bullshit. No rambling. No hiding. Im going to tell it like it is. Real talk.Theyve hidden the truth from you not through outright silence or outright lies but through putting blinders in your way. Mixing truth with a dash of falsehood here and there. You havent been totally lied to, only half lied to. In a way, its almost worse than lying – “a lie which is half a truth is ever the blackest of lies”, as spake Tennyson.Why am I bothering to tell you this? Why am I going out of my way to tell you the truth? Because I am a fucking rebel to the core. Because I came up from nothing- I came up “the hard way” – and even went back down again for a little bit, before coming back up in a big way.And I dont want you to have to struggle the way I did- I think you deserve to know the truth- you deserve to have it easier than I did- I dont want you to have to swallow the bullshit and make the mistakes that I did to get up here.If I can help just one person, then Ive won. Why not let that person be you?
