WHERE IS THE MONEY? 3 - OU EST L'ARGENT? 3
Money matters are always sensitive matters, yet almost all conversations rise and fall on this issue. As I post articles on my blog and other platforms or even as I read articles posted by others in various media, I discover that topics that teach us how to make money get the most clicks. If this is the driving force in the world that we live in, it is necessary for us have a proper understanding on how to manage it in such a way that it will be of benefit to all and not a source of sorrow to us and those around us. The problem with constantly asking yourself “where is the money?” in everything you do is that this will always be your attitude, your life is centered basically on yourself. However, when your preoccupation is what I can do make life better for others, your perspective on money becomes how it can help you make a difference. In this case, you are looking for a means not an end; for this group, money is not a source of competition but a solution to problems and the development of mankind. Our major preoccupation with money should not be what more can I acquire but how much more difference can I make. This group will not extort money and hoard amounts they do not even need, for them there is too much to be done that there is no time to scheme and search for ways of defrauding others. The irony of it all is that when we reach this point we discover that life is far less complicated and a lot more exciting. When leaders get it right, the effect will be phenomenal and it won’t be because the money multiplied, it would simply just mean the money was properly channeled.
