Which group of people are typically better humans – members of a wealthy group or a poor group?
Some say that money is the root of all evil. No, lack of money is the root of all evil.
In the history of the world, no one has ever pulled up in a Rolls Royce to rob a bank.
Look across any city’s neighborhoods. It’s the poor neighborhoods that have the most crime – stealing, looting, murder and assault.
Go ahead and ask any person – rich, middle class, or poor – this question: “Would you like to be gifted $500 million?”
Most anyone would accept it, even the misdirected people that believe the wealthy are evil.
Now you see the truth. Accepting the $500 million dollar gift exposes the fact that they don’t really believe that the wealthy are evil. Deep down, some resent the wealthy.
Money doesn’t make you good or evil. Wealth just makes you more of who you already are.
During one’s road to wealth, they usually take risks to create a lot of jobs and value for communities and people.
In fact, even the Bible is often misconstrued. It does not state that money is the root of all evil. 1 Timothy 6:10 reads “For the love of money is the root of all evil.”
In fact, you owe it to yourself to obtain wealth. I explain why in this 2-minute video:
Why Wealth Matters
Do you think that you can you do more for others when you’re rich … or when you’re broke?
I’m not talking about sharing your love or your heart or your hugs.
You can and you should give those things – with or without money.
The problem is, as wonderful as love & heart & hugs are, they simply won’t purchase food, homes, education or medicine.
I hope you agree that you can do more for others when you have the means to do so rather than when you’re broke and struggling and can barely support yourself.
Being broke does not win you any awards. Barely making a living is not a badge of honor either.
These things don’t add to your community, your family or the less fortunate.
Your money struggles won’t serve anyone.
But when you’re financially successful, you can pick & choose the people and organizations where you want to make a difference.
Now you can truly impact the quality of people’s lives.
Just as important, you can also support yourself, your lifestyle and your family.
Break The Mold
A rich person digs for gold; a poor person is concerned with the cost of a shovel.
You’ve got to do something different than everyone else. Their opinions don’t pay your bills either.
So stop living below your means. Start expanding your means.
Some say “I’d rather be happy than rich.”
Well, why not be both … especially when they’re both within your reach?
You owe it to yourself and those you love.
