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.

The Kaizen Challenge is a time I can truly describe as the most exiting time of my life. A new birth for Marius Louis Adams! I grew up in a small mining town, where most people I known’s vision didn’t even reach the end of town. My life was mediocre. I never challenged myself. I never thought I could achieve anything that my parents or I could be proud of.  But then I committed my life to the Lord on 1 Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-07-24 Confokulation is one of the most popular ways to part people from their money. It depends 100% on ignorance. So to succeed it must first mislead and confuse you. Then it must paralyze you and get you to give up trying to work it out. Then it must persuade you to hand the decision over to someone else who is going to make a lot of money as a result. Confokulation mostly uses fear to get you to hand over your hard earned money.   Fear of missing out.  Fear of... Read more...

I guess for me the best result I received from the challenge would be the fact that my fiancĂ© told me, out of the blue, that she can see the change. Inside my head I knew all the changes that were going on but never realized that someone on the Read more...
