Hi again folks
I wonder why frugality hasn't gone viral?
I mean, it's got all the right triggers to go viral right? It really is the ultimate get-rich scheme, the perfect meaning-to-life revelation, the most profound life-changer.....and yet it has not gone viral, in fact (when the chips are down) it is openly scorned and privately mocked.

Again I wonder why? Wait, I know why....here's why:
Frugality requires effort, patience, integrity, discipline and realism - all character-building virtues. Oh yeah, that's right - depth of character never goes viral. Conversely, depth of character (or the willingness to give it a shot) remains fairly elusive it seems.

Humans seem to historically have a proclivity for ignoring the powerful basic truths about wealth, influence, emotional intelligence, love, work, creativity, faith and relationships. Instead humans as far back as history records seem to be overwhelmingly influenced by the way they happen to feel, by those who can manipulate those feelings and by the feelings attached to physical objects and socially manipulated belief structures......meanwhile, the powerful basic truths about wealth, influence, emotional intelligence, love, work, creativity, faith and relationships remain quietly held by a very small number of disparate folk through the ages.

Admittedly, now in the age where knowledge runs to and fro throughout the earth with great ease and speed, more folk have access to these truths. Nevertheless, those who truly embrace these truths (meaning, more seriously than posting Facebook memes about them) invariably reap the benefits in part or full and yet are still viewed as a curios amongst the standard cultural norms in society. These folk are deemed an enigmatic subculture....different somehow.

Are you different somehow? I'm leaning into being different.

Take care folks and stay nice.
