There is a lot of things going on in the world right now. There is so much that is happening. So much pain. So much suffering. So much change. So many new ideas and concepts. So many issues that have lain festering are now bursting out into the open and demanding our attention. With all this going on, there is one thing that I keep on coming back to: money. Money is Power.
While excess money can give you power over others, having a good handle of your finances and ENOUGH money gives you power over yourselves. Money gives you choices. Choices give you power. Money is Power.
With money, you can choose to stay at a job or quit. With money, you can choose to live somewhere or choose to move. With money, you can choose to support organizations you believe in. With money, you can influence policy decisions at all levels of government. With money, you can afford an education that moves you up the social and political ladder.
As someone said “We are all in the same ocean but we don’t all have the same boat. Some of us are in yachts and others are on rafts”. Personally, I’d rather the yacht than the raft. And if I can’t have the yacht I’ll take a nice motorboat instead of a raft.
