Does Money Create Wealth?

Money is limited & limiting whilst wealth is limitless.

The average person thinks I just need a lot of money and everything will sort itself out. That’s not really the case. Lottery winners loose their money and parts of their sanity soon after they hit the Jackpot.

Earning money, rather than ‘winning’ money requires self-growth. It forces you to try, fail, learn, repeat until you succeed. Upskilling rather than obsessively gambling means that the reward is genuine. It is not the ‘drive to the shop, buy the ticket, check the numbers, loose’ loop of mediocrity, at best.

Upskilling also means that on the way to success you are preparing yourself for the reward, so that when it comes you don’t waste it or take it for granted. You use it to create something bigger and greater than you could have thought of at the beginning of the journey.

So does money create wealth or is wealth attracting money?

‘But’ Light Conversation

I graduated, but I now have to pay the student loan.

I moved out, but I have more expenses to cover.

I have lovely children, but I have to invest time in them.

The diagnosis of ‘but’ tells people ‘I’m mediocre, I’m just like you, you’ve got nothing to worry about. I’m not moving ahead, you are safe.’

We are not only saying these things to other people. This is what we are communicating to ourselves. That every good thing comes with a negative and the negative is what matters most. Going towards the light rather than away from the dark makes the whole difference on the path we take in life.

I graduated.

I moved out.

I have lovely children.
