I don't know how every single individual makes their money so it would be unfair of me to judge a person only by her or his pocketbook. However, I've seen a lot
of shady dealing, reprehensible behaviour, murder and war all done in the name of profit. All fed to me by a media that relies on continued fear and cynicism for maximizing its own profits.
I've grown weary of the wealthy, honestly speaking. I'm sure that unconsciously affects how I interact with them. It's one of my limiting beliefs. There's a part of me that holds back, career-wise, and I know this has something to do with it.
I'm sharing because I went through a ''pipe dream'' phase. I discovered the Zeitgeist movement. I feel somewhat embarrassed to admit it but I was holding on to extremely improbable dreams. Those dreams slowed down my ambitions as well since a part of me feared the concept
of money itself.
Today I'm trying to make peace with money and profit. I'm questioning myself on how to make a profit and keep my integrity. Questioning my concept of integrity itself. Seems the most sensible approach to me right now.
TL;DR You're right James. I'm living proof!
