Money is not a personal domain. Dynasties have been created and destroyed due to this one misunderstanding.
Money is what money does. It is never an issue unto itself. Create it. Ask for it. Use it. Receive it. Manage it. Grow it. Enjoy it. Share it. Whether it is a pound of gold, or a nickel-plated coin worth five cents, it will only have impact if you say so. And it will have none if you do not. These decisions become the treasures that are the true reflection of your caliber, and the impact of your life.
