If we want to solve a problem, we must find the source. If we want to enter the senior class, we need to understand why we are in the lower class of matter.
Reasons for being in the lower class
1. Whether there is an incremental basis
Before the snowball gets bigger and bigger, there must be a small snowball. Similarly, if you want to develop yourself, you must have an incremental foundation. To put it simply: enough capital.
Many rich second generations can easily make money, maybe not because they are more capable than us, but because they have an incremental foundation. Parents have helped them roll the “little snowball.” He can make the snowball bigger with just a little movement of his fingers. And most people have one more premise than them: to roll a small snowball by themselves, and many people may not be able to roll this small snowball in their entire lives.
2. The nonlinear relationship between effort and reward
There is no certain relationship without understanding the relationship between effort and reward.
The relationship between the two can only be said to be regular but not lawful. Therefore, don’t easily think about calculating how much return your efforts will bring by these simple addition and subtraction operations because it is simply not allowed.
3. Market returns vary
The tertiary industry raises cattle, and the capital industry brags. Which field is more profitable?
Different markets will have different market returns. At the very beginning of the market economy, market liquidity was poor, and the “intermediary industry” that undertakes commodity exchange had the highest rate of return at this time; after that, the stock market became popular, with the highest rate of return, and then real estate.
The rate of return of the early manual market has been lower than that of the intellectual market. However, looking at it now, the competition in the knowledge market is too fierce, which has caused the scarcity of the physical strength market, and a reversal has begun.
4. Stable reflexivity
In evolution, the species most likely to be eliminated are those whose living environment has been stable for a long time. For example, as we know Australia, many species evolve slowly because the continent drifts away from the main body of Pangea. And it is easy to cause mass extinction due to unexpected events.
Society is cruel, and resources are limited. Many people have lost the ability to compete for resources because of stability. So you need to think carefully when entering the system! Like the company I used to work for, those who know the other party is a big company and wait for it are often considered later.
Because of an overly comfortable life, competitiveness will be more or less degraded. If you choose stability without developing a strong competitive ability, then it is difficult to say that there is a class promotion through struggle.
After discussing why we stay in the lower material class, everyone can figure out how to break the situation themselves. I also offer some of my experience.
How to break the situation yourself
1. Utilize the conversion of resources
The most basic component of constructing a social system is the rules of resource exchange. Just as energy can be converted from heat to wind, kinetic energy can be converted to electricity. There are also transformations of different dimensions in resources.
You can use your knowledge to transform into wealth, you can also use wealth to chase after the opposite sex, and some people use power to obtain wealth. Therefore, the postgraduate entrance examination subject can use his academic and knowledge resources as the basis for future exchanges. As for whether it can be realized and what resources can be exchanged for, that is personal luck.
However, suppose you want to enter a high-level material class. In that case, you must have at least one resource that can be exchanged: sufficient knowledge, industry depth, monopoly information, or good looks (appearance is also a resource. ).
2. Increase your structure
If you paint one painting a day, you won’t be able to sell it in a year; if you paint only one painting a year, you may sell it in a day. Similarly, if you want to obtain more resources, you cannot rush for quick success. Many people I know failed not because of their lack of ability but because they were unwilling to persevere because they could not see the results and missed the market.
Only by standing higher and learning more can we see further. Many people may not even understand why they are in their material class. I started to think about using various methods to change, and I believe it is easy to encounter difficulties.
Sharpening a knife is never a mistake in chopping wood. Understanding the world’s laws and making good use of these laws is the best way to change yourself.
3. Look for incremental markets
Anyone who has studied finance knows the Poisson curve, and the application of the Poisson curve in the market is to divide the relationship between the increase and decrease of the market. The total market depends on operations, the stock market focuses on quality, and the shrinking market focuses on verticality. Among them, it is the easiest period to make profits when a market is in a total market. As long as you find this market, you can often “lay down and make money” in the early stage.
As for the latecomers, they often do not have such good luck. Therefore, the more effective way to change your class as soon as possible is to find incremental markets. And this depends on the individual’s ability level and the predictability of the environment.
4. Seek nodes
Many celebrities have been “playing tricks” for years before becoming famous, but they have done enough. If one of them becomes famous, he will be successful and irreversible. That successful part, we call a node.
Therefore, if you want to make achievements in a field, the easiest way is to persist enough. But a better way is to improve one’s ability level because one’s ability level is high enough to advance and increase such nodes greatly.
5. Overcome key limiting factors
Forget something in the room, don’t be afraid. We have the key. But the key was left in the room, so… the key here is our critical limiting factor.
And the key limiting factor in our lives may be our shortcomings or strengths. If you want to take the college entrance examination, your weak subjects are your key limiting factors. You are strong in math, but if you want to pass the math competition, math is your key limiting factor.
Therefore, if we want to develop better, we need to find the key factors that limit us and better reduce the restrictions on our development. As for how to find it, you need to combine your own goals and development paths.
Entering the senior class through your efforts may seem daunting, but it’s achievable with hard work and dedication. Remember to set realistic goals, stay organized and focused, and seek guidance and support from peers and mentors. These tips allow you to pave the way for a successful journey easily. So go out there and show everyone what you’re capable of achieving!
