“Simple” childhood stories often tell a profound tale.
Recently, I downloaded the tale of “The Grasshopper and the Ants,” an old Disney 33rpm LP record album that was popular when I was a child. I shared it with my children and listened along just for old times, when all of a sudden a line popped out at me with powerful clarity: “‘That boy will grow up to be a cheat,’ said the first ant, ‘or a king’ said the second ant!”
What a bold and profound statement! A fact that I certainly didn’t grapple with as a child and never pondered beyond entertainment purposes.
Sharing the Infinite Banking Concept is somewhat similar to telling a childhood story. It’s such a simple and wonderful story that sometimes the profound and bold details are lost on folks for whatever reasons. Perhaps one of the biggest is that many people don’t ponder things beyond the entertainment stage.
For instance, how many folks consider economics to be a bunch of graphs, numbers, and statistics? If they do, it’s because they simply haven’t contemplated that economics is nothing more than consequences…the consequences of decent (morally right) decisions or dishonest (morally wrong) decisions. Just as the two ants theorized in the story of “The Grasshopper and the Ants,” a decision or action may qualify one for becoming a cheat or a king depending on the action or decision made.
Today, decisions have been (and are being) made that subject Americans to taking responsibility for Greece and Ireland’s dishonest (morally wrong) monetary decisions. That puts the cheat and the king on equal footing -- if it doesn’t make them one and the same. Rarely is one willing to pick up a close friend’s tab, let alone that of a mere associate who’s squandered his or her resources. Yet, that’s exactly what’s happening today, and all under the name of economics, international banking, and monetary policy.
This is just one of the profound statements behind the Infinite Banking Concept, and it’s what led me to write the “Prescription for Wealth,” an easy-to-read book designed to encourage people to become their own banker and practice the Infinite Banking Concept themselves.
Most everyone who’s read the “Prescription For Wealth” understands there are more reasons why you should become wealthy than personal gain. Most appreciate that being wealthy is a decision you make that empowers you to become more beneficial to others. While some of your decisions ultimately lead to poverty, you can just as easily make decisions that produce greater prosperity for you and others, too.
Grasping this concept moves beyond the entertainment phase. It requires that you ponder the fact that your decisions and actions really do affect and produce an effect upon everyone…rippling through the world as a pool of water when a stone gets thrown into it.
If you’re currently happy with today’s world economic tale -- more and more of the world’s wealth rising to the top -- then continue doing what you’re doing. It’s working.
On the other hand, if you’re concerned about the cheat and the king being one and the same entity today, you’ll benefit from the profound concepts that await you by listening to the Infinite Banking Concept… a decent idea, which has altered in a positive way, and will continue to positively alter the dishonest economic consequences suffered by many due to dishonest economic ideologies.
