Dear Well-wishers! Thank you for isolating me. You made me believe that I am good for nothing. And, that was the time, when I first realized my capabilities.

Someone righteously said, “when people treat you like they don’t care, believe them.” If people are avoiding you, they are doing it for a reason. It is up to you, how you want to take that isolation. The best part is, how you react to this, will design your future. Take it as a source of motivation or degradation, either way, it is you, who is, going to be affected. However, if you want to be on the top of the sky, follow these rules for material success in the 21st century.

We are living in a world, where we know the price of everything, but the value of nothing. People are so much concerned about their social status. Nowadays, people are not concerned about your generosity or the favor you did to them. Be it friends, relatives, or siblings; it is all about benefits, perks, and financial growth.

1Nothing bad in practicality with own people

Practicality is the need of the hour. Instead of staying in the dark room of pessimism, one should strike back. If someone ignores you because of your financial or economic growth, instead of shedding tears on your bad luck, punch those people in the face. I am not saying you to blow a real punch, but make them feel bad by proving them wrong.

2Grading People

Stop being an emotional fool. Once a person ignores you, do not ever let him come any closer to you because he is never going to approach you without any of his own motives. Try to understand, he is not after you, but your skills; he is taking you for granted.

Make your own books and assign a number to everyone, who come across you. You can fix numbers and can treat people accordingly. The person at number 10, is the one you should be least bothered about and the person on number 1, must be your top priority every time.

Again, practicality is a must is for this.

3Being Selfish is good

I know, it takes a lot of courage and you may have to bear a lot of pain to do so, but as I said earlier, your reaction to this is going to design your destiny. Trust me, making money is not hard, but making your mind to do so is very difficult.

Reminds me of an illustration. A teacher once draws a straight line and asked a student, “how would you reduce the length of this line without erasing it. The student was smart. He draws a bigger line, right on the top of that line.”

The point is – you have no control on the financial growth of your opponents, but you can always alter yours. You are not supposed to delete their line, but you are free to have your line as lengthy as you want; no restrictions. You need to be a little selfish for this.

4Jealousy is a nice thing

Yes! Jealousy is a good thing. And, I am talking about healthy jealousy that actually works like a motivator. If you are serious about material and financial growth, don’t be a saint. The point is – with every dose of jealousy, you should be pushing yourself for more work, and not conspiring.

5Trust nobody

Don’t get me wrong, but if you are not good at judging people; trust nobody. Why risking things? You must keep in mind that you are not supposed to share all your secrets with anyone unless last option. In this world, you cannot trust anyone. And, for material success, secrecy is a must.

These are few rules. I know, many are going to reject these because of philosophical upbringings. But, these 21st-century rules are only for those, who are after monetary success.
