Is really money the root of all problems? Or is the lack of it the real problem?
Money can’t buy you happiness. That’s obviously true. But poverty can’t either.
Money is just a tool. And it’s essential to reach our vision of a better future.
Money is a means that allows us to reach our end goals. The failure to understand that, and the love of money, is what’s really evil. Not money itself.
Free market capitalism is not the root of all evils.
Corporatism is, because it screws the natural evolution of the free market.
In a free market economy the best products and services naturally come out and earn market shares.
Conversely corporatism involves political regulations that allow huge businesses to leverage their political interests.
This only benefits their own agendas at the expense of the will of the people and to the detriment of the common good.
People keep putting negative messages about money into your head.
The truth is, money is the tool through which you can change the world.
And I’m not saying you should love money with this. Because only a fool confuses “need” with “greed”. Only a fool can love an object that can’t love you back.
“The greatest form of maturity is at harvest time. This is when we must learn how to reap without complaint if the amounts are small and how to reap without apology if the amounts are big.”
Jim Rohn, Motivational speaker, entrepreneur
So, money it’s just a system of exchange. You serve others and they return something in exchange.
If you hold negative messages about money and you undersell yourself, you don’t allow people to get something in return.
You are screwing the balance of things.
You are making people feel bad, in debt, like they owe something all the time.
That’s what happens when you don’t charge what you’re worth.
