Something truly dramatic has happened over the past few decades. The world has made a transition from the industrial age to the information age and the income rules that applied a few decades ago have now been blown apart. Possibly the biggest myth in personal wealth creation today is that you should focus on one thing for your income. We are all trained into believing that in order to be successful you need to train in a chosen profession. Then get a “good job” within that industry and slog your way up the corporate ladder. In other words, we are all programmed to compete and succeed at the rat race by our parents, the school system and our peers. The simple truth however is that very few people gain either happiness nor financial stability by using this cruel, tired old formula. Whichever way you look at the latest rat race is that even if you win, you’re still just a rat.
