What is money?
Money is really just a tool of trade. That’s it.
Before money existed, people lived in small villages and to get life’s necessities people became specialists at one or two things and bartered. So a farmer would harvest his wheat at certain periods in the year, and then try to trade it for meat, garments, livestock and other items before the wheat went bad. But what ended up happening was the garment maker may not have needed wheat from the farmer, maybe he needed a chicken. The farmer would need to find someone to exchange the wheat for chickens and get the chicken to the garment maker. Money was created to simplify this bartering arrangement.
What we do today when we go to work is we trade our energy for pieces of paper that store value. Make sense?
Now, money is an effect, not a cause. The cause is creating value for the people around you. The more value you can create and add to other people’s lives, the more money that will show up in your life in exchange for that energy expended.
Bill Gates didn’t get as wealthy as he is by creating a useless product. His software revolutionized the world and made computers easier to use and more available.
Money needs to be respected, it only flows to those that treat it well, and money goes to where it’s loved. If you abuse money, you will always be broke.
We need to stop teaching kids that money is evil and that people that have accumulated it did so by wronging others. What kids need to do is hear the message that money is the symbol of productivity and achievement. Success equals money.
Do you think money is evil or good?
