After the jump...
- That the person has values that I feel gel with my own. Nothing is more important than this part alone cause I can learn the rest anyways no matter what I choose to do and with 100% certainty!
- That the person has reached my goal or exceeded it. The funny thing is that if the person hasn't reached my goal, but has a good view on things that person can/will easily reach it if he/she really wants to, and that fact alone can make my 2nd point invalid. 2. is the core of discussion in my opinion. Since I enjoy delving into the human mind this topic gives me limitless satisfaction thanks to all possible connections to other parts of life.
A bold statement; The norm is usually way off course! And I do mean Way Off. Staying away from the mainstream, while being aware, is usually the safest path to success. It's not the easiest, but it's not the hardest either. This statement holds true in-game as well as in real life. Chew on that for a few seconds before moving on.
Another question that popped when I listened to episode 9; I wonder why so few "gurus" comment on the Power Word: Gold blog/podcast overall? It all makes sense when seen with open eyes. This blog is different in a way that will create three views on gold making; Gevlon's, Markco's and Flux (Euripides, Jokinee, Nev, Gimp, Chris "The sexaholic" from Addicted 2 Azeroth and Big Jimm are all in the 3rd and most interesting category). The 3rd category has the fewest players, but they're the role models i'd choose if any, but I will use the others information if/when I feel interested enough.
I choose The Power: Gold philosophy because it’s a mix of gold making theories that fit me.
