WHERE IS THE MONEY? OU EST L'ARGENT?
What is uppermost in your mind when you talk to people? A lot of people will say the topic of the discussion or something that is related to the discussion. Most people will not admit that it is what to profit from that person or discussion that is uppermost in their mind. Most of life is lived in the dog eat dog arena and it takes extra effort to think of others first. There are many writings and posters making their rounds on social media about putting others first but the truth of the matter is that a lot of us do not believe this and will always want to see how we can benefit from any situation at the expense of others. In fact when we come across the few who want to put others before themselves; it usually looks like we have just met with aliens. As the world becomes tougher each day, what is uppermost in people’s mind is “how much am I going to make from this? Where is the money” when the answer to these questions is not clear, people are really not interested. Take some time off and be realistic with yourself and take an inventory, ask yourself this question “what is driving my associations and endeavors?” The point is that when all you think about is the money you can make, your vision is so myopic that all you will be able to achieve will just be a fraction of your contributions to humanity.
