Long ago when I was very young I tried to earn my riches by selling Amway soap. Later in life I tried to sell life insurance and new cars before discovering that I am just not a salesman. But I did learn a lot about business and the process of earning money from my days with Amway. One of the sayings that I learned from my Amway friends was, "Working for another man is the crabgrass in the lawn of life." There are very few people that create a life of abundance by working a job - most independently wealthy folks conduct their own business, usually with multiple streams of income. There are two ways to be in business and earn the things in life that you desire.
The first way is like South American businessman Komac in this movie - the competitive. You must compete with everyone else. In any competition there is only one winner. You must be that winner.
The second way is the creative - to give to every man more than you take from him, both when you are buying something that you will later sell, and also when you sell your product to the world. Whoa, that sounds foolish doesn't it? If you give the creator of this product more than that product is worth, how can you make any money selling it to someone else in an honest way? And when you sell it to someone else, you ask for less than the product is worth to the customer! Is that possible? Of course it is! In 1910 Wallace D. Wattles knew this secret of wealth creation, and gave an example that is outdated today, but you will understand anyway. I quote him here because his words are some of the most valuable words that I have ever encountered, and I'd like to share them with you - they have literally changed my life, and the principle works not only in business, but in every aspect of life:
"WHEN I say that you do not have to drive sharp bargains, I do not mean that you do not have to drive any bargains at all, or that you are above the necessity for having any dealings with your fellow men. I mean that you will not need to deal with them unfairly; you do not have to get something for nothing, but can give to every man more than you take from him."
"You cannot give every man more in cash market value than you take from him, but you can give him more in use value than the cash value of the thing you take from him. The paper, ink, and other material in this book may not be worth the money you pay for it; but if the ideas suggested by it bring you thousands of dollars, you have not been wronged by those who sold it to you; they have given you a great use value for a small cash value."
"Let us suppose that I own a picture by one of the great artists, which, in any civilized community, is worth thousands of dollars. I take it to Baffin Bay (note from Jimbo: a sea that lies between the west coast of Greenland and the Canadian Arctic, where Eskimo's fish and hunt), and by "salesmanship" induce an Eskimo to give a bundle of furs worth $500 for it. I have really wronged him, for he has no use for the picture; it has no use value to him; it will not add to his life."
"But suppose I give him a gun worth $50 for his furs; then he has made a good bargain. He has use for the gun; it will get him many more furs and much food; it will add to his life in every way; it will make him rich."
"When you rise from the competitive to the creative plane, you can scan your business transactions very strictly, and if you are selling any man anything which does not add more to his life than the thing he gives you in exchange, you can afford to stop it. You do not have to beat anybody in business. And if you are in a business which does beat people, get out of it at once."
"Give every man more in use value than you take from him in cash value; then you are adding to the life of the world by every business transaction." --- Wallace D. Wattles, 1910
This was Bobby Breen's final movie. His singing voice was so popular that everyone around him believed that his movie career would go on forever. Unfortunately, after finishing this film, he entered puberty and his voice changed, and his singing career ended abruptly. So this is your last chance to hear the most popular young voice of the 1930's in action, along with a pretty good plot set in exotic South America.
