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.

Die Kaizen Challenge het my omtrent heeltemal verander. Ek het myself nooit voorheen gesien as “een” met die skepping nie. Dit alleen was al klaar `n wonderlike besef en ervaring.Voorheen ek het met my voertuig net baie ongeduldig van punt A na Punt B gery en ek het my nie gesteur aan my omgewing nie. Nou kan ek egter verstaan hoekom ry die karre so vreeslik stadig oor die Read more...
Wealth Insight 2009-12-25 Running On Faith   This newsletter goes out on Christmas day. This is a day when Christians are reminded of their faith. So today I am going to be talking a bit about faith.   But it’s another kind of faith I’m thinking of right now. A kind of faith that has kept the material world as we know it going for nearly 40 years.   A kind of faith that gives me faith in the power of faith itself!   In 1971 Nixon unpegged the dollar from gold.... Read more...

When I started the Kaizen Challenge course I didn’t even have a clue as to what the term “Kaizen Challenge” meant. I searched the internet and found out that the Japanese word meant continual improvement. The “challenge” part only struck me around Day3 in the course. I realized that this information is not just about money but really about everything in my life – about changing my very being at Read more...

When I started the Kaizen Challenge I was already doing my meditations and affirmations. With the surplus of control over my thoughts and the daily goals I managed to manifest and enjoy a lot of my plans. I get more and more confirmation every day in books like "Life is a gift" from Gill Edwards and off course Abraham, Read more...
Wealth Insight 2009-06-19 A tale of two students Recently I received two letters written by two completely different people. This is from the first one ...  “I would like to urge anybody who is interested in Internet marketing and Internet businesses not to waste their time and money in ventures like these, since I am living proof due to about 30 trials within 3 years and with nothing new, that I am aware of, on the Internet that can be tried! I think that I tried it all! If you... Read more...
