You’re wondering what is Mona Lisa’s wealth code? But we promise the Mona Lisa is more than just oil on wood. If it was just that it would not have attracted the level of attention it has gotten over the past 500 years. So what is really intriguing about the Mona Lisa — even the great Pablo Picasso was accused of stealing it — that is considered one of the greatest works of the Renaissance era? What lessons on wealth building can we learn from this brilliant work of Leonardo da Vinci?
With a worth above $700 million and various mystery theories built around it, there is probably no other artwork that has been at the centre of various debates than it. Debates range from the actual identity in the picture, the probability of another picture hidden in it to hidden codes — we believe it has some codes on wealth building 😄.
The widely accepted identity of the woman in the image is Madonna Lisa di Anotonio Maria Gherardini; the wife of a wealthy Florentine trader in the 16th century named Francesco del Giocondo. Given the technique applied by the artist, it gave the work a sense of realism that seemed unattainable in that era. His techniques included the use of the sfumato painting style and the use of depth. That said, let us explore its codes of wealth
The Sfumato-Wealth Code
“You have to be patient enough to watch each layer of wealth color dry up before adding another — master financial responsibility habits gradually.”
We coined this term based on the definition of the sfumato painting technique. It requires the painter to blend various layers of oil paint in an imperceptible manner, giving the work a sort of smoky feel. To achieve this, the painter must wait for each layer to dry up before painting another on it as the journey to a perfect blend starts.
Patience sits at the core of this technique, birthing irresistible and detailed works. Just as the painter, who patience offered the ability to pay attention to details and deliver breathtaking works; we — through patience also — get the opportunity to take on habits needed to manage and sustain wealth.
It took more than having just colours to paint the Mona Lisa, so also would it take more than having just money to build wealth. You need to take on these habits of financial responsibility one at a time and master them gradually as your wealth journey progresses. That is similar to waiting for each layer of paint to dry on Da Vinci’s board.
Hence, to achieve these habits one must have a long term investment focus. In other words, one must first have the desire to build wealth or manage it. With our beautiful Life Goals tailored for such focus, you get to build these habits as you attain wealth.
The Code Of Depth and Mona Lisa
“Work around a depth that motivates focus on the subject matter of the work — wealth goal.”
One thing people have always noted about the Mona Lisa is how the work is structured to keep your gaze on the subject of the painting. Da Vinci was able to achieve this by integrating a feel of depth around the pyramidal form of Lisa.
This work of depth added other beautiful details to the image but it also achieved a significant purpose — keeping your view focused on the subject.
Remember, the subject of investing is to build wealth and not to service short term expenditure. In the journey towards wealth, you would have various needs that would tempt you to tamper with your long term investment. This is where the depth comes in; creating a feel to satisfy beautiful details that would only strengthen the focus point.
Thankfully, we have just the right tool to achieve this — Saving Plans. Setting up a savings plan is good to help check your list of financial goals and can also serve as absorbers for financial threats to our long-term goals.
Hence, it is advisable to set up both long term and short term goals, and not just one of them. Because with short term plans for short term goals it is easier to isolate your long term plans and watch them grow.
This choice would help you plan towards short term goals tactically, set up emergency funds and still have your wealth goals taking the centre stage like Lisa.
Hopefully, you would take this advice and start creating your own masterpiece of wealth within a reasonable period. It is quite simple, faster, and more rewarding when you automate the process — we are an automated wealth building platform.
