Robert Greene’s Law # 7:
“Get others to do the work for you, but always take the credit”
Law # 7, in my own words: “The things that end up costing you the most are the ones that you don’t pay for”
Have you ever met a person that would never accept anything for free? they would insist on paying for anything that they used and any value that they received? These people do exist, and I believe there is wisdom behind it.
There’s a saying “there’s no such thing as a free lunch.”, and i genuinely agree, i think somewhere down the line of your life you will have to pay for any value you have received as if there is a balance account above your head.
Suggestion: become a little bit more aware of things that are seemingly “free”, and see if you can spot the hidden cost.
