There is something revealing about the nature of people and is shown clearly by the way they play games. Take Monopoly for example, which is considered a classic family board game.
The promise of riches by purchasing hotels, utilities and railway stations by their real estate can mark a real difference between the winner and loser.
Buying up big seems lucrative especially if one player dominates the game.
Collecting money for taxes and rent at the expense of the other participants can fairly quickly take the shine off the contest, although it is the point of the game!
At times to keep the game interesting deals may be made to ensure the mood is light, and perhaps even to tantalise the players to think there could be an alternative ending.
Much like the game itself, we are sold the idea that if we have money then we will have a worry-free future.
Of course, we understand that money and wealth can open doors that otherwise might remain shut.
However, this is dependent upon our attitude to money and overall wealth.
Having money does not guarantee that the recipient will keep it unless they invest wisely.
Knowing how and what do with it determines the lifestyle that can be lived in both the short and long term.
In a game there is an element of fantasy and imagination as we know it is not real, but in life it is important to stay focused on what is before us.
The cash can be splashed without care for the long-term consequences as the board and pieces will only be packed away and each time it is brought out again there can be an entirely different outcome.
When it comes to small business it takes more than a go around the board to make a living and to generate regular income to live on.
Wealth begins with what you feel about yourself inside and the inner mindset you have. It is driven by every decision you make for both the short and long term pathway of your business success.
Investing your time well and with careful planning, support and strategy it is possible to thrive and expand your growing business in all areas of your life.
