Money is the Root of all Evil and Man needs Roots

Get used to it!

Gosh, I hate it when people tell me that having money isn’t good for you. These people will start ranting about the evils of capitalism. Most of them that I found that talks about these issues are the ones who don’t work hard enough for the money.

Why do we need to work for Money?

So question yourself about why should you be working for money. If I have a farm where I owned the land, why do I even need to bother about money?

Dig Deeper and you will find the Roots grow Deeper than you Think

So you got food, water, and shelter from your farm, life’s great! Right?

Well, not exactly. If that’s the case, we humans would still be enjoying life farming and sleeping around all day. So what’s changed?

Our ancestors want more!

Humans are greedy, we are constantly looking for the next big thing to grow and improve ourselves.

We made rockets, planes, and cars. Heck, we now make robots to do our work!

Our desire to want more in life has led to rapid human evolution. And money is simply the medium.

Work for money so Money can work for you

Money makes the world go round, we humans want more in life and money helps us get there… A little bit faster.

You decide, how you want your money to work.

In our economy, the ones that provide the product or service are rewarded with equity. And the ones who simply take are the ones that are poor.

Find a business that can provide the most amount of value(present and future). The company Apple is worth trillions of dollars because it has provided immense value to the economy with its smartphone technology as compared to Walmart. They’re both important in our society but Apple provides more value to customers, which is why the company is worth more than Walmart.

Be useful in society. That means finding problems and fixing our world to make it a better place. You can’t do that without money. A simple way that literally anyone can start providing value to others is by investing.

So, make money work for you.

Be Hungry for Success and Great Change

I found that in my years as an entrepreneur, the ones that are the most hungry for change are the ones willing to put in the work to improve themselves.

Excuse #1: But they are from a rich family background

Have you heard of the Rockefeller family?

They were one of America’s richest families back in the 1800s, running the oil and banking industry. However, fast forward to the 21st century, and their family wealth has all but disappeared thanks to their descendant’s bad spending habits.

There’s a Chinese saying that wealth doesn’t last more than 3 generations. That’s so true!

It’s okay if you do not come from a rich family background. Maybe you will be the first in the family to accomplish it. All you need to do is invest your time to build knowledge and wealth through investing in books and businesses.

Excuse #2: I can’t study

This is one of the worst mindset that destroy the wealth mindset.

If you don’t believe you can ever be rich, there’s a high chance you never will. You are simply not hungry enough.

With the Internet, learning to start a business is easier than ever. You can get free information from Youtube or Google. You can even start an online business to make money online. Got any questions, you can simply ask Quora.

Excuse #3: I don’t have time

This has got to be one of the worst poor man excuses.

Even if you have to work a 9–5, be home at 6 and take care of kids. You would still have at least 2 hours to work on a side hustle to earn additional income. And if you are motivated to make more money, there’s always time to find ways to make more of it.

Money can’t buy you happiness. But it sure as hell can buy you that sweet-ass Ferrari. And that’s happiness!

Just kidding!

There is a lot that you can do with money but you can’t buy anything without money. It’s true that you don’t have to be rich to be happy, but you do still need to have sufficient income to cover your expenses.

Don’t stay in bed unless you can make money in bed

So until you can make money while sleeping, there’s always time for you to start finding ways to make money.

Here are some different types of side hustles for you to get started:

Know your Roots

Money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish. But it will not replace you as a driver.

Ultimately, money isn’t evil. It’s how you use it that determines whether it is for a malicious cause. In some sense, people view money as a means of setting rules for the world to run. If you want something, you have to work hard to save and buy it.

Without them, we live with the animals

Without money, we will be back in the old days when all we trade is food and water. Our lives would be a lot harder to live when no one actually needs to work hard in order to achieve something.
