We are on the topic of “MONEY” this week and for the next few series of video content that I am planning.
It’s fun to learn, and to share the stuff that we learn, with others about different topics.
I wanted to tackle MONEY first, and then move on to a different topic.
So I hope that you find some value in these videos.
So, Yesterday I did a video on what Real Money is. The difference between Currency and Money, and if you’d like to watch it, it’s on YouTube.
Today, I wanted to tackle the believes that we have about money, because our believes and our world views, have a strong hold on how our life plays out.
A popular myth about money, is the it changes people.
When money comes in to our lives, it changes us.
The reality is…
Money behaves like a force in society. It’s only a tool.
Money doesn’t care about your self esteem, about your religion, about where you live or what your goals are.
Money is just a tool. You either have it or you don’t. You’re either making money or you’re spending money.
BUT, one thing I know is this…
Money doesn’t change people. It shows who they really are.
Money just amplifies who we genuinely are and the values that we live by.
If you were an asshole before, and then you got rich, you’re now just an asshole who has got a larger bank account.
The other side of the coin is also valid. If you are humble and generous before, nothing’s going to change when you make it.
Money also acts like gasoline. It makes the fire bigger.
It allows you to move quicker, to learn faster.
It all depends on who you are and where you want to channel.
Money strips away the vulnerability of being poor, and gives us the platform to be as we really are.
So, it’s important to get our life’s principles and values the way we want to be remembered, before we attempt to make money, because it’s only going to magnify your values and principles.
If we chase money with a ruthless attitude, then you may magnify the ruthlessness when you make the money.
If we make money because we want to help others, and make a change in the world, then it’s a wonderful thing.
That’s my message about money today.
I wish you a happy and prosperous journey in your life!
