Life is too complex to spend time on four extra commandments that you will probably break after this morning’s pew riding session, so here are the six commandments that you should follow to bring clarity to a certain world of uncertainty.
DON”T BE RULED. This is the first and greatest commandment (though one need not keep it holy). Your life and the decisions you make to maximize it are yours and no entity or individual on this planet should be put in a position to tell you otherwise.
OWN YOUR ELITISM. You have worked hard and invested money and time into being the best. Take ownership of the environment you create and maintain to promote that hard work and investment. In short, let the haters hate.
NETWORK WITH WINNERS. The company of winners not only will inspire you, but bring you valuable information that will guide your pursuit of excellence.
FORM STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS. This commandment is closely related to that on networking. No one gets anywhere by themselves. Seek out partners that bring expertise necessary for achieving the milestones along your path to greatness or at least on your path to a pay check.
BRING VALUE TO CAPITAL. The entities that control capital control the economy, commerce, and business. In pursuit of maximizing returns on capital, they seek out people who can get them those returns. Educate yourself and create the expertise they need.
CAUSES ARE FOR LOSERS. Fifty-two years after the Civil Rights Act, Americans still have to be convinced that black lives matter. Forty-three years after Roe v. Wade, women are still fighting pot-bellied old white men for control over their bodies. Meanwhile, the only people benefiting are the those who can game the grant-writing system and take trips to DC and state capitals making rhetorical testimonies before lawmakers and judges in the day time while partying with these same people at night and attending fancy fundraisers.
May you apply these commandments accordingly, and remember,
TAXATION IS THEFT….
