In order to have money, lots of money, you have to be a swindler, a drug dealer or some kind of criminal. Maybe I learned this from old movies like The Godfather or maybe just a narrative I chose to tell myself. I don’t actually know where it came from, but I do know it is categorically wrong!
THE TRUTH is the exact opposite. Most rich people, really rich people, come by their wealth the old fashion way. They earn it. They figure out ways to provide value to a large enough group of people that when reciprocated becomes vast sums of money. This is the law of sowing and reaping at work. No stealing. No cheating. No criminal activity. And not only that, the wealthiest people I know are hyper focused on growth, gratitude, and giving….go figure! Here’s a couple of quotes that sum the whole thing up.
Grind until you don’t have to Struggle… then keep Grinding so you can help those who are still Struggling.
– Grant Cardone
Success built at the expense of others is short lived.
– Andy Frisella
If you have a goal or a dream and you are willing to consistently work toward it, you can attain it. This is still AMERICA! THE LAND OF OPPORTUNITY!
