Don’t let people tell you: “Money is the root of all evil. I don’t need money.” Those people will always be broke. They don’t understand that money is a tool to expand their reach, to impact more people, to shift our culture and change the world. I know a lot of broke geniuses who say they don’t care about money, and yet there’s no one that they’re helping.
Or put another way, the best way I can help a homeless person is to not be one of them.
I’m continually stunned by the folks who want to demonize success and achievement, yet do nothing to further the fate of the less fortunate around them.
WHY is is so hard to understand that nothing good happens until someone creates value.
First, you must achieve, then when there is surplus past filling our basic needs, then there can be philanthropy.
Get busy, create some value.
