Everyone wants to make a billion dollar company. But how come nobody wants to make themselves into a billion-dollar individual?

Investing in yourself

There is this very broad notion of ‘investing in yourself’, but I think what people mean to say is this:

Invest in yourself in order for you to build a company worth a lot of money.

Why can’t you simply be the end-goal?

How far can you go?

A fun way to think about life:

Treat your life as an experiment to see how far you can go.

In terms of:

  1. How much can you build and innovate?
  2. How much can you build your personal strength (powerlifting goals), or physical physique?
  3. See how far you can take your individual art.

Why this emphasis on companies over individuals?

An individual is never allowed to focus his or her energies for the sake of him or herself. An individual must always be a bridge in order to create something bigger than themselves. Why is this the case?

My thought is that this comes from Christian morality:

Thou shalt sacrifice yourself for the collective.

I believe this is a noble goal, but we should also be allowed to do the opposite:

Thou shalt sacrifice the collective for the sake of the individual.

We must allow both.

What do you choose?

Perhaps in the future people will build companies FOR THE SAKE of building and investing in individuals.

Apparently in venture capital, there is a saying:

Bet on the jockey, not the horse.

Which means:

Bet on the individual with great ideas and entrepreneurial spirit, not the company.

Why I value myself so much

I get it from my mom. She has taught me to value myself, my worth, and to believe in my ideas and ideals.

Moving forward, I will focus on investing on myself and my speculative ideas. Building arsbeta.com and other platforms as an extension of myself and my individual beliefs, instead of building something for the sake of selling it off. And to also build a company or technological tool for the sake of human empowerment, not profits.

You are the goal.

Build yourself for the sake of yourself. Have the courage to do so!

BE BRAVE!
