Money is not real.

Money is not real.

Money is merely a medium of exchange, or legal tender. We utilise it to trade goods and services. It is a symbol of worth. The “body” of value is money. Within us, it is the physical expression of value that increases and falls. Not in “things” outside of ourselves, but in ourselves. Because without us, what can an item like a car be worth to us? Nothing, at least not to our knowledge. In other words, it is we, the observers, who assign value to objects, but this value is truly value in us—we assign worth to material objects.

What is money then?

MIt is, after all, a big delusion. It's all just numbers, printed on paper and stored on computers, assigned to persons and things like companies and investments, or, more precisely, additional records! To put it another way, just around $4 in printed-paper notes or coins exist for every $100 or its equivalent in any other money, while the other $96 exists as figures written on papers and computers in banks, enterprises, and other entities. We all trust in this system, which is why it hasn't collapsed yet.

Is money an illusion or something else?

There is a science of getting rich, and it is an exact science, like algebra or arithmetic. There are certain laws which govern the process of acquiring riches, and once these laws are learned and obeyed by anyone, that person will get rich with mathematical certainty.

—Wallace D. Wattles.


Knowing what wealth is is the first step toward having it. And few people are aware of what it is in and of itself. What exactly is wealth? What is the root of the problem? What is the root of the problem? Let's begin with money, the world's emblem of riches, and work our way deeper from there.

Hill was a charlatan

Napoleon Hill was said to be an advisor to two presidents: Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
In fact, there’s no evidence whatsoever outside of Hill’s own writings that Hill met President Wilson or President Roosevelt, let alone acted as a trusted advisor to both.

Denying Your Own Creativity

That’s a self-imposed and self-limiting belief. Stop that.

Creativity is a requirement for problem-solving and we all problem-solve. Acknowledge that you're inherently creative, and then start tearing down the other barriers in your mind.
