“Me!” would be probably the first reaction of all most of the people.
Do you really want money? – if even now the answer is ” yes” then you are already a millionaire.
The truth is, only a tiny percent of mankind really wants money and these are the same people who own great material riches. I talked to some people who know personally the so-called Russian oligarchs (people who became incredibly rich and influential in a short time) – they say that it is the love for money as object that has driven them all to becoming so rich.
The truth is that an average citizen of any country is not really interested in money. Sure, no one would mind comforts and other benefits that money brings with. However it is a very seldom case that someone is interested in possessing huge sums of money as such. And the one who is obsessed with the idea usually gets it!
I tend to believe that the profit–thinking and money orientation are rather unnatural for human beings. What is natural? The quest for love, happiness, creativity, health, comfort of body and soul… Again and again, working at the mids of moeny-making spheres (in my previous job – marketing, now- wealth management) I can see it so clearly: the quest for money is not at all at the core of a human nature. That is probably the reason for another truth – it is damn hard to find a good sales-manager! They are as rare as white tigers. Because most of the people don’t see any fun in sales – despite they feel sick of it.
Where I am heading at with that topic? I keep wondering about the power the profit-thinking/money obsession has over the humangs, being actually neither natural nor desirable by the majority of the Earth citizens? I keep wondering if a day will come when it will become not only obvious but also unbearable for humans. A day when the general needs will be satisfied and not multiplied madly like now.
I believe it is possible. And will happen one day. Probably even in my life time!
