Preview Of Systematic Wealth

  1. 1. Preview of Systematic Wealth <ul><li>Thank you for dropping by! In this short presentation, I will share some of the secrets I wrote about in the book Systematic Wealth. Enjoy! Peter Nguyen CEO & co-founder Talentelle </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>Money is like sex: everybody wants more of it, but nobody wants to publicly admit. </li></ul><ul><li>So let's be honest. Since you're reading this book, I'll assume that you want more of it. Money, I mean. (In any case, I can't help you with sex, unless we start dating. However, it might be inappropriate for an author to date his readers. But if you're a young beautiful woman of fertile age, I'd be willing to make an exception). </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Since we all want more money, the existential question is, “How can a person get as much money as possible without having to rob a bank and possibly getting shot by an overzealous security guard who doesn't understand the money is federally insured by the government?” </li></ul><ul><li>A similar question is, “How can a person become as rich as Donald Trump without losing one's sense of hairstyle fashion?” </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>The ultimate answer is, “I have no clue whatsoever.” </li></ul><ul><li>I have no clue because every person is endowed with certain natural talents that must first be discovered before the person can make a huge amount of money from it. </li></ul><ul><li>Indeed, one secret of Systematic Wealth is that one can systematically exploit one's talent, but it has to be found first. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Your talent is like a huge oil reserve. You have to know where to dig. And you also have to know how to refine your talent (just like oil and petroleum) into products and solutions that the world will find useful and pay for. </li></ul><ul><li>After all, Gutenberg died poor. So did Vincent Van Gogh. As for Pablo Picasso, when asked why he didn't have any of his own paintings in his studio, he replied: “Because I can't afford them.” </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>You might wonder why we are talking about geniuses. The truth is, you ARE a genius. </li></ul><ul><li>Buckminster Fuller once wrote that we are born as geniuses, but society “degeniuses” us. </li></ul><ul><li>Remember that Einstein dropped out of the rigid, authoritarian German educational system before he found himself and discovered his genius. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Bill Gates and Steve Jobs also dropped out of college. </li></ul><ul><li>I was inspired by the two geniuses above, so in an attempt to follow in their footsteps, I also dropped out of university. Twice. Unfortunately, this act of madness did not result in the great wealth I anticipated. </li></ul><ul><li>However, I did create something amazing on May 4, 2006. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>I basically discovered that wealth was an independent system of thought and action. </li></ul><ul><li>I discovered that business was the engine of wealth, and that the more you treat your business like a machine, the more it will turn you into a millionaire. </li></ul><ul><li>I also discovered that you have to “earn” a million dollars before you can “make” a million dollars. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Specifically, I create the “BMW” workshop (for Business Model Workout) </li></ul><ul><li>This workshop was so popular that I began to think about it all the time, so I could constantly refine it. </li></ul><ul><li>In fact, I stopped daydreaming about Kirsten Dunst. </li></ul><ul><li>My new philosophy is: Make as much money as possible, and women will come! </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>But seriously, I think that women can lead men astray in life. It's not women's fault, of course. Women are beautiful, compassionate, inspiring, sensitive, aesthetic and highly lovable creatures. </li></ul><ul><li>This is why men pursue them. But the method of romantic pursuit is often not optimal. </li></ul><ul><li>That is, men use two different strategies to attract women. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>The first strategy is to “look good.” Men who use this strategy will often buy things that will impress women, like a shiny sports car or an Italian designer suit. </li></ul><ul><li>The second strategy is to actually “be good.” This is harder since you have to know what your real talent is, and you have to build a career or business based on it. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>The “look good” strategy requires that a man get a well-paying job. He's like a wanderer who's searching for trees with low-hanging fruits. He then picks them and puts them in his fruit basket. </li></ul><ul><li>The “be good” strategy requires that a man creates his own garden, in order to grow his own fruits and vegetables. This takes longer than just picking fruits, so initially, not many women will be attracted to this type of man. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>What does this have to do with wealth, you ask? </li></ul><ul><li>Wealth, as Wayne Dyer once wrote, is not something we acquire, but something we tune into. </li></ul><ul><li>In other words, wealth is within. </li></ul><ul><li>Wealth lies within. Wealth comes from inside. Wealth is inherent to who you truly are. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>Most people, of course, do not believe this. In their search for wealth, they scour the world looking for novel ideas and secret recipes and exotic methods for getting rich. </li></ul><ul><li>Jim Rohn understood the method of wealth creation. He often says that “Success is something you attract by the person you become.” </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>“ Becoming” is, however, not easy. That's because change is automatic, while progress is not. </li></ul><ul><li>You only progress if and only if your problems are different today than they were a year ago. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Becoming” is not easy because we don't see who we are. As a result, we cannot manage our own self-evolution. </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>Warren Buffett admitted that a critical point of his career was when he learned from Charlie Munger, his friend and partner, how to correct himself. </li></ul><ul><li>This is how he became possibly the greatest capital allocator in the history of capitalism. </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>The key to wealth creation is to do like Warren Buffett and Bill Gates: to expose your thinking to the world, so that it can (through the free market system) correct you as early as possible, when it is cheap to change and correct one's course. </li></ul><ul><li>Remember, it was Bill Gates who, on December 7, 1995 decided to turn his company around to focus aggressively on the Internet. </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>Most people are not wealthy because they NEVER correct their thinking. They think that they know enough, and they think that what they know is good enough. </li></ul><ul><li>Few people indeed read non-fiction books with as much enthusiam as they do fiction books. </li></ul>
  19. 19. <ul><li>I've read over 800 non-fiction books, and I can tell you that they contain GREAT wealth creation secrets. </li></ul>
  20. 20. <ul><li>For instance, I learned the following process for becoming wealthy: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Identify </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Plan </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Schedule </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Assign </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Execute </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Close </li></ul></ul>
