Thrones build by greed always falls quickly. It is just like just picturing some species of a snake swallowing a poisonous toad and dying at the same time, this is greed.
There are different doors opened to different opportunities, all, you have to do is choose wisely.
Sam was a student who wants to be a great man but he has the habit of taking all from people.
He was sent to school but he chose to make money and sort courses instead
It started as a kid, Sam has three siblings. When something is giving to them he will take it all without giving his siblings. He did this for a long time and finally, things got rough for him.
He wanted to have it all so he engaged in gambling, on a special day he was giving an option to pay 10,000 naira to win 100,000 he was intrigued to join in this promising offer but at the end of the day, he lost more than 10,000 and did not win the gamble also.
Sam entered university with his greed never to quit on it. He started doing business online.
He gambles, he doesn’t defraud people. Every little thing he does always got back on him.
He stumbles upon a message on Facebook, one day he commented on it, then he got a message instantly telling him to put his money on a platform. Sam saw an opportunity to earn without stress so he opted in instantly and he was defrauded, everything including his school fee. These things happen because they are human instincts. So it has the effect to incite thing we don’t want to do. People usually use the psychology of others by pretending to give them more why they sap everything.
Greed is the insatiable longing for material gain be it food, money or power.
Greed is like a bottomless pit, that no matter what goes in it will not be satisfied.
The purpose of greed is to deprive others of their basic needs.
Sam was never like this before, he was turned into what he was today because he was never given enough.
What then happened?
People will use the psychological weaknesses in greed to tap into your storage and get more than you planned to take from them.
As a student, you might be destitute, this is because you are not having enough.
Sometimes because you feel the need for liberating the suffering that your parents are facing, people will try to prey on your weak point, don’t let people act on that loophole. Keep your emotion intact, do not let anyone know the reason you are looking for money and definitely don’t act like you are looking for money desperately.
Sometimes people hide the real reason why they get close to you, this is in order to gain something from you in the long run.
Some of these friends you can convert them to reason like you while others might convert you to reason like them. It all depends on how quickly you can be converted to believe people’s ideologies.
Sam started by doing social media he stumbled upon an article that said give me 500000 thousand naira to get 1000000 million naira. He never wanted his parents to keep suffering, so he was tempted to go in but was defrauded instead and this nearly costs him his life on campus. He became a frustrated person.
Now listen, It is nice of you to think of helping your parents but also knows that they have their own pride in training you.
If you end up training yourself with your money and you ended up messing up then you will make life more miserable for them.
Based on what Sam did, his money was lost and mother his died when she was trying to get him out of the debt.
He wanted to help his parents but now the parents ended up dying for him. He ended up losing not just the money but his family member.
How do you know when you are being defrauded?
I have tested so many of these things, I literally got the same result on all occasions. So it is worth it.
First, If you are psychologically ready to do almost everything to get something. people are going to work on that trend to take things from you. People will work on your insecurity and tap into your unease.
So don’t give them the opening to know you are desperately in need of something if not they will work on that.
Secondly, it always comes in this scenario give me 1,000 to get 2,000 without doing anything. You should be able to detect cases like that because they are suspicious. It is only when you work that you expect those gain and also losses and not just a random person meeting you either online or real and telling you about getting 100,000 nairas for 300,000 nairas. Nothing works like that in this world how can you reap what you didn’t sow. If the person has those amount of money to solve his problem. why does he/she want to give it away just like that?
Another tip to know fraudsters are If you have already given them the money, they are usually more greedy than you so they will give you an excuse that the deal stopped halfway that it was service issue or that something is lacking so they will ask you to top to what you have already given, sometimes that topping to it will be added to the original money they want to give you. With all these pieces coming to place look for a way to report them to the police because they are fraudsters.
Don’t allow money to control your natural instinct to weigh every action with your cognitive domain. Develop the tricks to shake off the temptations of doubling to what you already have without hard work or as a promise given to you by someone whether you know the person or not.
Don’t let people know, you take unnecessary risk in business or anything at all if not they will always present Ideas in other to defraud you. So don’t show that side of you to anyone because they will manipulate your mind at will.
Finally, know your weakness and strength and don’t let others discover it before you. When you discover it, work on them to understand them and know how people will apply them in manipulating you.
Only with this method can you not suffer defeat but also try to learn from every defeat.
The tip I want to share is, people, should know how to calculate and predict other’s actions to understand when they have crossed the space of help to the space of greed.
Being patient and working hard will get your mind out of fast money. Just have the patient that your hard work will pay.
When you want to gain double of what you have without working for the other half you end up losing the original things you have already got, just like Sam who lost not just his money and became indebted but also lost his mother be wise when making decisions on the threatening situation. Put everything into consideration, calculate for the visible and invisible and try to picture the consequence in the near future.
Thanks for reading.
