A mass reorientation towards the topic of wealth creation is required. Wealth is not a mysterious thing. Your wealth is best defined as the value of your productivity over time. The obsession with “making money” may stem from a number of misconceptions about the true meaning of wealth. Making money is a subset of creating wealth. You will make a big mistake if you believe money is a separate entity; it is not. If you are currently struggling with lack and poverty. Please understand that it is not a money problem, it is a productivity problem. Poor people must be taught how to be more productive.
Consider your current financial situation. Whether it is physical money or digital money stored on servers somewhere. Try to link it to a specific productive act you carried out. Consider your salary to be an exchange for the value you create through your work (productivity). Consider your company’s revenue as a reward for your current level of productivity. The first step is to understand where your money comes from. If you want to make more money, you must increase your productivity. Building wealth from the ground up requires that you understand this.
Wealth creation requires a long-term perspective. It all boils down to trying to increase your productivity over time. Proverbs 21:5 says, “the plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty.” Building wealth entails planning out how you will multiply your productivity a hundredfold. It is comparable to having the wisdom to grow from one talent to two talents, five talents, and finally ten talents. Poverty in your world is not due to a lack of money. It reflects the unproductive nature of your world. Your prosperous future is dependent on your ability to patiently work from one talent to a hundred talents.
