Money is not the source of value. It is only a storage container of value. Money naturally flows to where value is being created. The giver of money naturally expects value back. The creator of value naturally expects to be paid the right price.
Ask this question frequently and you will never be poor; what can I do or create that is most valuable to the most people?
You don’t need to get rich or to raise capital before you can do what you were meant to do. It’s the other way around: first you follow your inspiration and create value for others, then the money flows to you. You are the source of value. Value is creation and service to others.
Do everything you can to offer real value to others. If you can serve or create something that is valuable to others, equal value will inevitably flow back to you in the form of money, fulfilling relationships, favors, new opportunities, recognition and admiration.
You must go first. Limitation is an illusion seen by those who refuse to go first. Sometimes it is enough just to explain what you are going to do and the funding will come up-front.
Others may error, they may rob and steal, but nobody gets away with anything. To acquire wealth through deceit or abuse of power is to attack. To attack is to create your own hell on earth.
You who love, serve and create are the truly rich. The wealth you enjoy is a beautiful reflection of the love you give. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
