Focus, understanding and diligence, the “fund” is the key to managing money. The “fund” is my acronym for focus, understanding and diligence. Without the “fund,” no one can even manage to wake up in the morning correctly, and that is the “fund” at the most basic level. Logically, I say this, because of the way I operate like a business in everything I do, with focus, understanding and diligence. If you do not operate consistently, not so much constantly, but consistently like a business in key areas of your life, you will fail and fail deeply. That is also the point of this article, for indeed, money and value are microcosmic representations of how we handle our whole energies let alone our whole lives.
Think about it, how a person handles money is a representation of how they genuinely handle their lives. Mystical or realistic, you see it in all money management. Not only that, but that is also what makes the fund the key to success or the pitfall to failure when used in a negative sense. How can it be used in a negative sense? Obsessions, fears, mystical games played on yourself by yourself. These are a few of the myriad of ways that the “fund” can be used in a negative way. But there is only one positive way to use the fund, and that is to create and control value for yourself and everything around you.
Think about this one time, the “fund” starts with focus, and it comes down to a very old saying by a great poet named anonymous: Where your attention flows, energy goes. The rest of the “fund” comes after that focus is definite. For, incredibly the investment in yourself and benefiting yourself first is the ultimate creation and use of the “fund” to understand and be diligent in the ultimate sense. I am not saying, be irrationally selfish or destructively greedy. But, I am saying that how you treat yourself is the representation conscious and unconscious of how you consider genuinely everyone else. Same with how you invest your money, and all representations there of your money.
So, I repeat, focus, understanding and diligence is what it all comes down to. If it did not, then life would be mystical, easy, pan determined and not self determined and communism and every other inaccurate ideology would work like a charm, where you really do not have to think for yourself or benefit yourself first. I know that sounds gross and somewhat “ridiculous.” But I am only mentioning the full reality of all situations in this article without any judgement or prejudice. In short, I am only mentioning what counts and omitting what does not count. Value counts, what is not of value does not. Consider that, and do what you need to do with my advice on money and life. Manage well, and use the “fund.”
