114 Key Principles for Success

Principle 44 - Are you happier with $3 billion or $100,000?

You're thinking, "Of course $3 billion."

But what if you had $10 billion at the beginning of the year and by the end, you have only $3 billion?

Would you be happy? You'd be miserable, maybe even suicidal.

But what if you had $10 to your name but $100,000 fell into your lap. You'd be ecstatic.

So it's not the amount but the trend.

If you don't believe the logic here it's because you're not thinking that you have $10 Billion. You're thinking of going from your current income to $3 billion, of course, you'd want that. That's not the thought exercise I'm talking about.
