True Security

the online game that increases your financial iq - play now

"The future belongs to the risk takers, not the security seekers. The more you seek security, the less of it you will have, and the more you pursue opportunity, the more security you will achieve."  --Brian Tracy

It seems counter-intuitive that seeking security doesn't lead to security. 

The problem with seeking security directly is that it often leads to compromises that put us in a position of weakness. For example, one might settle for a job that is unpleasant, but hey, it pays the bills. While this sort of compromise may be necessary in the short term, it is not a good strategy for long-term security. After all, a job can be taken away by someone else. If you don't control the source of your security, then guess what? It's not really security, it's just the illusion of security.

If you want the peace of mind that comes with being financially secure, you need more than a good job. You need to pursue opportunities where you control the factors that lead to success. You need to realize that the world, and wealth, are abundant. You need to pursue opportunities that create value for others, and in the process, wealth for yourself. When you control the source of your wealth, then you will achieve real security.
