The Harvest of Labor

In close to twenty years lecturing around the world on money, I have heard just about every comment under the sun on this so often misunderstood topic.

It is amazing to think that people will spend their entire lives working for it and yet not realize what it ultimately represents. Economists spend their lives researching and studying it, yet you put a group of economist together in a room, and none of them will be able to agree on any aspect of money including how it should be created or used.

While most people desire money, it is feared above most other things on the planet. People fear having too little, too much, fear losing what they have, or even at times fear that it is intrinsically evil. As I have studied money and observed people's reaction to it, I have come to the conclusion that this fear is most often a result of their lack of proper understanding.

Money is simple - it is the harvest of our labor and production. Money is just as important as the necessary food it buys to feed our bodies, the medical care it pays for, and the education it provides for our children.

Earl Nightingale summarized it well: “It is what we receive for our production, and what we can then use to buy the production of others. The amount of money a person receives will always be in direct proportion to the demand for what he does, his ability to do what he does, and the difficulty of replacing his production. Our rewards in life will be in exact proportion to our contributions and the number of people to whom we contribute.”

Our Gold Tribe has a simple but powerful ideal; to contribute the missing elements of true wealth to the lives of millions of others around the world in the days ahead.

Best Wishes in Wealth
