PASSION PARTY #539 - Money and Energy
It takes energy to make money.
They say that money doesn't grow on trees, but if you plant an orchard and work at the harvest, money can grow on trees.
The relationship between time, money and energy:
Money does not equal energy.
If it did, day laborers would be rich.
Knowledge does not equal money
If it did, librarians would be wealthy.
But knowledge, combined with time, energy and action, can create money.
I think of money as congealed energy.
Each day I exchange my life force energy, which is formless
for money, which is solid and tangible.
And in our society, money is also an accurate measurement for the amount of value
I am bringing to the marketplace.
So the secret of making more money is not
to spend more time
or to exert more energy
it is to give more value to more people
and build systems and teams to expand my capacity to receive the fruits of my labor.Then the money takes care of itself.
