4 REASONS WHY HARD WORK DOES NOT GUARANTEE FINANCIAL FREEDOM!

 

If you've ever thought deeply about the concept of Hard work. One thing you will realize is that hard work is for losers. 

 

Hard work was never meant to be the goal. Before you think of me as the devil's advocate. Let's consider an analogy of the story of creation in the Bible.

 

 The first thing we want to consider is what God's purpose for Man was. Genesis 1:26-28 embodies it all, "to be fruitful, multiply, and replenish the Earth. That doesn't sound like Hard work to me.

 

 The second part of the Creation Story analogy is that Hard work came as the consequence of sin. It was a curse and a punishment for disobeying God's Commandments. No wonder the court Condemned criminals to incarceration with hard labor. 

 

 

So if hard work is a form of punishment why then do all your motivational speakers, preachers, books, and gurus recommend it?

 

Are they not telling you to stay cursed?

 

Just so you know. I'm not writing this article for cheap attention or to chase any clout. I don't have a problem with working at all. But the idea that you have to work really hard before you become successful is just one myth that must be debunked.

 

Thank God for this generation. We're finally seeing some fraudulent philosophical lies that have traveled for centuries being exposed. AI has made thousands of people Jobless, and Technology has shrunk age-long tasks into minutes. What takes a thousand days to do, can be done in seconds.

 

In an ever-changing, ever-adapting world like ours here are 4 reasons why hard work alone will never make you rich.

 

 

 

1. Time is a depreciating Factor.

 

" Time Spent can never be recovered"

 

Wealth is not directly proportional to effort employed, and in every equation of life, time is the principal factor.

 

Every Human being has about 35 to 50 years as a period of active service in life. If your earning is directly proportional to how much work and effort you put in, do you think you will have sufficiently enough to take care of yourself and your family in your days of weakness?

 

What happens the day you're Sick?

 

Does that mean, you won't be able to spend quality time with your family away from work?

 

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MONEY AND TIME

You cannot afford to spend the whole of your life working for every dime you get. Doing that means you're earning in addition, and addition is not a factor in the wealth equation.

 

 "Your time is your most precious asset, if you don't make good use of it, you will grow old regretting it." 

 

The surest way to build wealth is through compound interest. Compound interests are results on steroids. They're the multiples of numbers and multiplied returns on capital, time, and effort employed.

 

The original design for life was that you get compounded results from every of your effort in life. Earning in commensurate to your effort is a breech of divine arrangement. 

 

Think about this for a second. Supposing you plant a seed of corn, and after all the tilling, the watering, and all the effort employed, you harvest a seed of corn. I'm sure you'll first swear for all your village people. Because that is not natural. 

 

 

The same applies to money and time. And if you ever want to get rich in life, you should be thinking about compounding the monetary results of every effort you make within a certain period.

 

 

That means. If it takes you 5 hours to make $1 per day. What can you do to make $10 in 5hr per day? 

 

That's how you compound money. Thinking in leverage. (point 3).

 

 

But don't forget, Elon Musk is still the richest man in the world (as of when this blog was written) with an estimated net worth of $240 million. If Elon decides not to work again and spends all his money, say he spends $1 million per day, it will take him up to 657 years to consume all his wealth.

 

 

Wealth is not Built from Hardwork, it is Built from Compound results obtained from effort and time employed.

 

 

 

 

2. Money Has No Emotions: 

 

You do not get rich by winning the "who has suffered most in life" contest. Money does not give a f*ck about all your life suffering, struggles, and hardwork.

 

It's either you're channeling your time and energy into the right kind of investments that will yield returns or you're not.

 

Suffering is not a component in the equation of wealth. Looking for cheap favors, and charity will only continue to impoverish you. You cannot be dashed your way into wealth. Because a borrower will always be a slave to the lender and the receiver to the giver.

 

 

3. Wealth is Built on Systems and Leverages

Building systems and leverages is the language of wealth yet most people don't get it. The very few who understand how this game is played invest their time and effort alternately. Instead of directly engaging in activities that move the money needle themselves, they create systems and leverages that do it with or without their direct effort.

 

A system is a set of interconnected or interrelated components that work together to achieve a specific goal or function. This could be in terms of people, codes, or capital.

 

The best part of a system is that it functions without your direct input. Systems and leverages are how you compound your effort. What would require a 1000 hour to perform, can be done in minutes using the right systems and leverage.

 

If you're a good student of the economic history of the world, you'll see how the systems of building wealth have evolved. A hundred years ago, you'd need hundreds and thousands of people working on a farm or a manufacturing plant, for it to be functional. Today, there is a technology for doing almost everything in the world.

 

A system can be anything that works for you. Anything that multiple your effort to achieve a compounded result. It could be people, it could be software, it could be money, it could be knowledge, etc.

 

The goal is to understand which system is appropriate for building the kind of wealth you desire and channel your time and effort into it.

 

 

4. Wealth is Transferable, Hard work is not!

 

A good man leaves an inheritance for his children Children, not a shit load of work. No matter how hard-working you are, you may not be able to transfer the same energy, will, or desire to your Children. Or have you ever seen any man who died and left his "hard work" in his Will for his children to inherit?

 

To be hard working is an individual decision. You cannot force it on anybody, neither can you give it to them as a gift. What you can do is to inspire and advise them. At best, they might decide to take your advice or not, that's their cup of tea, not yours.

 

So hard work is not transferable.

 

 

FINAL THOUGHTS

Being a student of the school of wealth has taught me that life is a rigged game. To win you have to be highly intelligent and intelligence is the ability to get whatever you want out of life.

If you've been working way too hard yet you're getting no results, maybe it's time to pivot and channel your time and effort to what really counts.

 

Remember, Hard work does not guarantee financial freedom.
