The Money Podcast
The Paradox of Life (& Money)
Wednesday, 9 October
We all know how the market can be very unstable. For a few weeks, we’re celebrating, then after few days, we’re already experiencing a month-long (or even year-long) decline.
It’s difficult to live and survive with how unpredictable everything is. So, in this episode of the Money Podcast, Rob tells more about the paradox of life and money. We can never control the external factors that can influence the trials of our lives, but we can be cautious and be ready for it. Rob teaches us today how to balance out the extremes so we can manage our emotions and our behaviours in our future decisions. Stay tune.
“When you think life’s going well, it’s when you get a 45,000-pound bill; when your son gets a hole-in-one, it’s when, on the next day, you crash your Ferrari through The News Building; and… just when you think you’re fighting and struggling and you’ve been fighting for so long in entrepreneurship to make the money, it’s when finally, someone fires you and makes it easy.” – Rob
Don’t get too caught up in celebrating your successes. Awareness can help you stay focused in maintaining or improving where you are. Always prepare for what’s to come next. It’s not every day that you’ll be at your peak. There can also be unforeseen instances that can happen; life is very unpredictable.
There should always be continuity, growth, and improvement. Success can deceive you and force you to stagnate… don’t! Always be up for a challenge and search for better things.
You can be ecstatic, be elated, or feel you’re the best person in the world at the present moment, but don’t let any title, milestone, or amount dictate your principles and your behaviour.
“Wisdom is being able to see the paradox in the moment… It’s being able to see clearly in the moment when you’re feeling the emotion.”
“Chasing happiness is a paradox.”
“Emotions are feedback to the environment.”
