In this episode Joel and Antonia talk about rejecting where you came from or resisting your next growth phase.

In this podcast you’ll find:

  • JP Morgan, John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie, to name a few, are men who made a massive impact in USA and the rest of the world. The wealth they generated was mind blowing.
  • Had they not expressed their stellar brilliance, we would not acquired the technological advances we are enjoying now.
  • How do we navigate the world when the process is not good, what does that mean for us going forward? How do we move on with the world?
  • The book (Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill) was inspired by business magnate, Andrew Carnegie. At one point, he sold the business and spent the rest of his life by giving his money back. He wanted to give help back to people.
  • When we observe the damage that can be done with the levels of development, we tend to create a territorial boundary around this unacceptable behavior. And this is a necessary development that we should have.
  • There are a lot of people who demonize money. There are people who think that money is bad, but what if money is what you need to leverage your development to become the best version of yourself?
  • The Industrial age was Graves Level 5 which was all about achievement. To know more about Graves Level, checkout this podcast episode.
  • Level 6 is where you understand where everybody has a voice. It’s the time where you review or revisit the previous levels.
  • Every level or learning experiences are important. How much are rejecting from the lessons of the past?
  • Integrate and Transcend: Learn to integrate all the great stuff and transcend the bad stuff.
  • Begin by tacking your individual personal development. Ask yourself, what were the lesson you’ve learned from the past that are imperative to you now?
  • For example, during our teenage years, one of the things that we learned is how to stand up for ourselves.
  • There are tools and resources that you need to learn before you can achieve your goal.
  • Authentically aligned wealth generation that’s with integrity are becoming more popular these days.
  • If you are going to reject the concept of money, then you are behind all the people who have been making money with integrity.
  • Having affluence can greatly give you influence. Affluence helps you build the skill and resource in order to build influence.

    I really enjoyed this episode. Resisting growth because the next level appears distasteful has frequently been my experience. When I was in the midst of resisting, though, I didn’t perceive it as holding back. There was no sense of direction, not like advancing from one grade to the next at school. All I knew was that I didn’t want to change in a negative way, and generally thought of it more in terms of resisting temptation, as in not wanting to slide into greed or blasphemy. Thanks for clarifying that it’s possible to change and retain integrity.
    Also, a request: Could you elaborate on the problem of not learning to stand up for oneself in one’s teens? Can this skill be developed later in life, and if so, what would you recommend, assuming the person has quietly advanced past level 5 in the Graves model and wants to become an influencer?

    I like the way you approach this topic. As a little girl I was taught to be ‘thrifty’. My mom would never throw out leftovers and always seem to magically turn them into something special. Somehow, this idea really stuck with me to the point that I would try as hard as I could to find ways to re-ue trash to the point that my parents were annoyed with the junk piling up in my room. My dad is a bit of an entrepreneur and my mom’s parents and grandparent were businesspeople and it took me a while to be at peace with it. The way my mom first got me to accept and embrace the concept of money making was that money is just like the way you put it, money is simply a tool. Making money is neither good nor bad and in situations where you are in charge of others, money making is a necessity and a responsibility. What you do with it and how you deal with the power that comes with it is all up to you
