Who wants to be a billionaire?

by | May 19, 2001 | Archives

A rich Greek shipping magnate gave the secret of being a billionaire many years ago. I share it here with you.

A wealthy Greek (one of the richest men in the world) once said that one does not need an astrologist to become a millionaire. Then he added that to become a billionaire you do. This statement was made long ago when being a billionaire was pretty rare.

This was over thirty years when I was living in Hong Kong so I was used to suspicious businessmen. I listened because the Chinese are very into what some might consider the occult, but there were more billionaires per capita in Hong Kong than anywhere else!

In fact the more I thought about this the more it made sense. To make billions one has to take enormous risks and see a big pictures far in an invisible future.

We all have to make some decisions based on events we cannot totally predict , but successful billionaires make huge decisions based on enormous unknowns. Let's say they have incredible faith so they can take incredible risks. None of us can see the whole picture but Astrology, albeit vaguely, helps us see the biggest pictures of all. Astrology is an inexact way of viewing events beyond our logic and understanding.

So years ago I started using astrology. I chose Eastern (Indian) Vedic astrology called Jyotish and the information provided by my yearly consults has been of enormous information to me. Let me explain its value to me and then tell you about a special opportunity that is coming up soon when my Jyotishi Dr. D.S. Dixit comes from New Delhi, India for his annual visit with us on the farm.

First let me be clear, I do not use astrology to make day to day business decisions. Most things get worked out with logic and thought. But astrology in my business provides an overlay, giving a sense of when to push, when to pull back, when times are ripe for opportunity and not.

I review my chart once a year when Dr Dixit visits me-(we fly him from India to do so. My Jyotishi has been amazingly correct. For example a few years back my chart showed problems with government authorities. Sure enough a two year tax audit ensued, beginning almost on the day predicted However I was told this would bring me money and this suggestion was right! My refund (I had been overpaying) amounted to over $70,000.

Another year I was told me that this a time was so good for real estate that people would even give me land. That knowledge helped me make the decision to buy our farm here, despite the fact it had not been surveyed and the sellers would not agree to a reduced price if the survey turned up less land than they said. The result? The farm was 31 acres more than expected. I received this little gift free!

Another year my chart suggested I should reduce my equity load. This matched my logical concerns about an inflated stock market. Thus I was 90% in bonds when the US stock market bombed. I could share numerous additional tales and many of my clients have been enormously helped by consulting with Dr. Dixit.

What is Jyotish?

Jyotish is branch of ancient Vedic knowledge concerned with relationships and their influence in time and space. Jyotish is mathematically precise and contains the knowledge of the cycles of time that bring about all transformations. It explains how changes and developments are experienced in life.

Dr. Dixit is from a family of Brahmin priests in India who, for many generations, have taught Sanskrit and used Vedic Astrology. He has a Master's degree in Indian philosophy with specialization in the theory of Karma or Karmic cycle. Mr. Dixit is devoted to helping people with astrological consultations and through his extensive Vedic knowledge.
