People Want To Give You Money
Selling popcorn at the movies, selling pizzas at a pizza shop, working the counter in various fast food places.
I always liked the fast pace, but what I enjoyed most was interacting with people.
Everybody’s happy when they’re about to eat something. They’re happy to be paying for something that’s going make them feel good.
Especially when I worked at the movies. People buying popcorn on a Friday or Saturday night before seeing the latest blockbuster were always in a good mood.
The conversation was just long enough to exchange smiles, a couple of “thank you’s” and then on to the next person.
This is the kind of transaction people overlook when they say “money is evil.”
Money is just energy. It’s how you use it that can be evil. It certainly doesn’t have to be.
Nor does wanting more money, regardless of how much you’ve got.
Storing up potential energy for the future is a good thing. It’s even programmed into animals who hibernate.
When they are in “collection mode,” they don’t get angry at each other.
“Hey! Look at that greedy squirrel! Doesn’t he have ENOUGH nuts already? Sheesh! The nerve of some rodents!”
They are too busy getting as much as they can, to survive the long cold winter.
Humans are the same way. We have ZERO idea what future will be like. Yet we have this unique capacity to look out into the future and plan for what we think might happen.
So we store up as much “energy” as we can, which is our case, is money.
The more we have, the better we feel about being able to handle ANYTHING that comes our way.
There’s nothing wrong with this. Nothing evil about it. It’s only evil if you do evil things to get money.
So long as you get it “correctly,” there’s nothing to worry about.
How do you do that?
By providing value, real value to others. Just like selling popcorn at the movies.
Provide value that they’ll be happy to pay for.
The more you can do that, the more you’ll get paid.
Right now, you have an incredible amount of learning capacity. There are literally endless amounts of skills and methods you can discover that will help you deliver MORE value to others, and get paid MORE in the process.
The world is huge, and people’s needs are endless.
No matter WHAT you are capable of now, there’s people out there that need it. And are willing to pay for it.
And the more you increase what you’re capable of delivering, the more you’ll receive.
