Wealth is not a hindrance,

but rather a help towards

attaining a proper standing,

in a chosen field of activity.

 

I confess that as far as I am concerned,

it has done me some service,

as it has preserved my character

from many a crookedness

poverty might have exposed it to

Henryk Sienkiewicz

 

I’ve always had an undiagnosed hatred for the rich. 

I naively believed that only the poor will get to go to Heaven.  I foolishly believed that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of the needle, than for a rich man to get to Heaven.

Before you lunge at me, I am not saying that may not be true.

All I am saying, is that money is just a story.

There is no real intrinsic value in either having and not having money.

There are plenty of examples of wealthy people who despite the means to do otherwise, live miserable and unhappy lives.  There are also equally as many examples of poor people who do the same.

All things being equal, it is better to have money.

You don’t have to fight your creditors.  You don’t have to stretch and balance yourself between paycheques.  You won’t have to fight over meaningful purchases with your partner.

You might even share some of it.

Let’s get over stories about money.

Let’s work hard to earn lots of it.

Let’s take control and help others.
