People with skills and talent are more valuable than people
with money, which is why people with money try as hard as they can
to convince everyone else that having money is a virtue. They try
to convince the people with skills and talent that skills and
talent are minor to worthless so that the people with money can
hire them to do their bidding and make the people with skills and
talent feel grateful for the opportunity to get paid.
skills and talent need to wake up and realize that they
don’t need someone else to give them money. Skills and
talent are the real source of wealth and prosperity. Skills and
talent are what make the world go ‘round.
Money is almost nothing,
almost worthless. It doesn’t really exist. It only exists
as long as we all agree that it exists for the practical purpose
of trading, as a convenient substitute for bartering. Money is
incapable of making anything happen except as a means of
motivating people with skills and talent to use their skills and
talent to make something happen for the benefit of people with
money. In a world containing only people with money and no talent
or skills, nothing would ever happen, no matter how much money
talent are real. They exist. They have true value, which is why
you can barter your skills for other people’s skills.
Skills and talent can make things happen equally well in an
environment of billions of dollars or no dollars. Skills and
talent are completely independent of money. In a world containing
only people with skills and talent and no money, many amazing
things would be accomplished, without the involvement,
interference, or influence of money.
wants to use your skills and talent but doesn’t have any
skills or talent of their own to barter in exchange for yours had
better give you lots and lots of money for the privilege. It is
they who need you, not vice versa.
