Did you know in Fairbanks, Alaska, it’s illegal to serve alcohol to a moose? Yeah, actual law.
And did you know in South Dakota, it’s illegal to fall asleep in a cheese factory? And in Memphis, Tennessee, if you order a slice of pie at a restaurant, you have to eat it there. It’s illegal by their law to take it out.
Now, these laws are kind of silly, right? But a lot of laws are there to help us, to actually protect us from things—like don’t murder somebody, don’t drive drunk, wear your seatbelt.
Some laws are good; some laws are bad.
There’s another type of law I want to talk about today: laws of human nature. These are observable things that we can see in society that work almost all the time.
For example, the Pareto principle that says 80 percent of what you get comes from 20 percent of what you put into something (aka the 80/20 rule). You’ve probably heard it. Those are laws of human nature.
There are actually a bunch of laws of human nature that can make you wealthy, and that’s what we’ll talk about today: The six laws that will make you wealthy.
Without further ado, let’s get to them.
6 Laws That Will Make You Rich
1. It is more important that you decide than what you decide.
In other words, people go through their entire life wanting to do great things—wanting to be wealthy, wanting to start a business, wanting to lose weight. But they never really decide exactly what the best thing for them is.
I like to use the analogy that people are often thinking that riches or wealth or business or whatever is like going to a beach with a shovel or with a metal detector. You’re out there just looking around, trying to find this hidden gold or your purpose, your destiny. But I don’t think that’s it at all.
I think you hold that gold in your hand on that beach, and you can bury it wherever you want to. In fact, it’s less like a beach and more like a blank canvas. You can do what you want.
So, therefore it’s more important that you decide than what you decide.
