The success industry advise us to be brave. They advise us to spend money we do not have on seminars. They advise us to give up our day job. This makes us more dependent on them.
- Do not be more brave than you are! Nobody can think clearly when they do not know where their next meal is coming from.
- The rich never make leaps of faith. They make reasoned judgements and then act consistency. This may seem to be a leap of faith when the full facts are known- but at the time it was a reasoned calculation.
- Everyone has their own safety threshold. One person can think of the future with hardly a penny to their name. Another needs six months wages in the bank. This is not a courage issue. It has more to do with childhood experiences with poverty.
Be brave when you feel brave.
