What is it worth to keep us ignorant?
Profits are huge when you can keep your costs very low. At the same time you need to convince people to pay as much as possible.
The lower the costs and the higher the price you can charge, the better. The skin care and cosmetics industry is a great example – but there are many, many others. Including wealth creation.
Let’s take the beauty industry:
The costs are low because the ingredients are cheap. Often, they are really, really cheap.
The price is high because of marketing.
* Think of the images, the posters, the glamorous cosmetics counters.
* Think of the packaging, the advertorials, the adverts.
* Think of the way the popular magazines pump up your products, the quasi-scientific way they go on about nano-technology and liposomes and all that.
* Think of how they promise to make you beautiful. Young. Happy. Things you are prepared to pay money for.
This is how they get you to think that their products are valuable.
Now here’s another way to say the same thing:
These companies are profitable because people don’t know what they are buying.
So unless your product is truly the best, a large part of your marketing strategy is to build ignorance!
AND what’s more, in my experience the real solutions are always cheaper and simpler than you think.
The things that really work come for free or for very little, compared with the things that don’t.
So there is another reason to build ignorance! When the things that work are cheap, simple and easy to find, it’s a real threat to your expensive, poor quality, ineffective products! So you need people to stay ignorant because:
* that’s the only way they will pay hundreds or thousands of times what your products are really worth
* that’s the only way to be sure they will never stop buying your stuff when they find the simpler cheaper alternatives that really work
Fortunes are built on our ignorance. It’s worth a lot of money to keep the truth away from us. It is true of the beauty industry and even more, the wealth creation industry. Any industry where truth is scarce (for the reasons we discussed); and where the stakes are high (beauty, youth, wealth, happiness). 
What do you do about it? Look for the truth! It’s fun, liberating, amazing! Start with the simple truth of the Formula for Riches®, and with the free course on liberating yourself from debt at Warriors Against Debt.

Wealth Insight 2009-11-06 Where does today’s money come from?   I’m not talking about historical money right now, though that is an interesting tale! For now I am just looking at where today’s money comes from. The money in your pocket. The money owing on your bond.   Okay, you worked for it. Or you borrowed it.   But where did it come from?   Yes, your employer. The bank.   But before that?   It was created out of nothing.   Once... Read more...

I cried to God for years and asked him to free me from the slavery of using force in my working environment and everything that is financial related. Of course I didn’t use the exact words then, but I experienced the slavery of working day and night and to still bring in only a small and very limited amount of money each month. I know what that Read more...

Ek het baie getwyfel oor of ek die kursus moet aanpak of nie, die geld was skraps en ek sou dit sekerlik op ander maniere beter kon aangewend. Maar nadat ek ‘n paar maande uitgestel het, met net ‘n drukstuk in my dagboek-stelsel, het ek op laas oë toegeknyp en Read more...

The first physical change that Kaizen Challenge has made to me is starting my day off the same way – with reading and silence. This has given me the clarity of mind, each day, to see what issues are troubling me and what I need to do to sort out those issues. I find I am now able to look at the “bigger picture” each day Read more...

I have experienced minor but nevertheless profound changes over the past 7 weeks of the challenge. The main item I noticed was the importance of doing things every day in all the main areas of life. I probably neglected some areas before the challenge, certainly not giving enough attention to the relationships aspect, and I now contact friends Read more...
