People of different quadrants have fear, doubts, beliefs, strengths, and weaknesses, but all people respond to them differently.
We all have acquired technical skills but we have to learn emotional abilities as well. Also, when we faced difficulties then how we respond to them, will decide our future. When we face difficulties then either we go back to our comfortable quadrant or face it and choose to be free. This ability is much needed to become successful in our life.
Even though we’re all human beings. when it comes to money and the emotions attached to money, we all respond differently. And it’s how we respond to those emotions that often determines from which quadrant we choose to generate our income.
Changing quadrants is often a change at the core of who you are—how you think and how you look at the world. The change is easier for some people than for others simply because some people welcome change and others fight it. And changing quadrants is most often a life-changing experience.
When we belong from the E quadrant then we talk about safety, security, good paycheck, etc. E quadrant people prefer to get a certainty, extra benefits. They have security is more important rather than money.
S talks about their commission on an hourly basis or percentage of the entire project etc. These people prefer to be their boss, like to do their work, like independent rather than money. In many respects, they are true artists with their style and methods of doing things.
B quadrant people talk about hiring new talent, new president etc. for business. They are the opposite of S; they hire people rather than do work themselves. They like to delegate works; they keep thinking to produce better growth. Business requires leadership skills that help us to bring out the best from people.
And I quadrant people talk about the rate of return, risk-adjusted return etc. For the understanding core of the people, we need to be a listener. This helps us to understand the core of people and we can lead them.
People think that they only get financial security by establishing a business. So, for that many starts from Employees to self-employed and then transfer to business. Many from self-employed to business. And many employees to business but not all can achieve success because each quadrant requires a different type of human and mental skills. When S goes for a B then first has to learn to prepare the system and hire competent staff. As he as a system in S quadrant.
When people try to shift from E or S quadrant to the B quadrant then they have such thoughts in the mind. The people who try to shift from E or S to B then they think to have a better product or services compared to XYZ but the B quadrant requires a better system.
I quadrant is the last quadrant where we can able to convert our money to wealth.
For creating wealth, we require Other People’s Time and Other People’s Money. So, E and S quadrant people are other people and B and I use their time & money to creating wealth.
When we compared the cash flow of rich person and middle class than rich have the majority of ~80% income from investment and ~20% as wages. Whereas the middle class have reversed to it, their ~80% of income comes as wages or commission and ~20% from investment. And for becoming wealthy, we need to get passive cash flow from different assets.
The definition of wealth is the number of days you can survive without physically working (or anyone else in your household physically working) and still maintain your standard of living.
When we do not focus on this part then when we have an extra income, we buy liability from it and liabilities will result in the expense. This is a wrong practice. We also make some wrong practice of making an investment which generates income after completion of our working years. We need to focus on making an investment that generates income during our working years and help us to becomes Financially free.
People avoid investment due to risk but there are possibilities to earn a decent return by lowering risk. We have to learn it. Those who want a safe return, avoid taking a risk but rather to avoid taking a risk, we need to learn to manage it. When we able to learn such skills then the “I” quadrant always welcome us.
