You have to understand that the key to being rich has nothing to do with being good-looking. It has nothing to do with being naturally smart. It has nothing to do with being born with a wide-range of natural advantages.
Instead, the essence of becoming rich really boils down to value. If you are willing to give value to the lives of people who come to you to solve a particular problem, you will become rich. In other words, the more you take care of others based on a voluntary exchange, the more they take care of you by handing more and more dollars into your hand. Nobody forced them, mind you. There was no law forcing these people to deliver value to you. Instead, it is a voluntary response to your own set of voluntary actions. Value for value.
That was the case in the past, that is the case now, and this will probably continue long into the future because that is human nature. We don’t naturally dip into our pockets and whip out cash just because we feel like it. We definitely don’t do it just because we don’t have anything better to do. We do that when we come across somebody who gives us the value that we are looking for.
