I affirm that…

Money flows freely and abundantly into my life.

I always have enough money to suit my needs and to be a force for good. Click To Tweet

To trade by means of money is the code of the men of good will. Money rests on the axiom that every man is the owner of his mind and his effort. Money allows no power to prescribe the value of your effort except the voluntary choice of the man who is willing to trade you his effort in return. Money permits you to obtain for your goods and your labor that which they are worth to the men who buy them, but no more. Money permits no deals except those to mutual benefit by the unforced judgment of the traders. Money demands of you the recognition that men must work for their own benefit, not for their own injury, for their gain, not their loss—the recognition that they are not beasts of burden, born to carry the weight of your misery—that you must offer them values, not wounds—that the common bond among men is not the exchange of suffering, but the exchange of goods. Money demands that you sell, not your weakness to men’s stupidity, but your talent to their reason; it demands that you buy, not the shoddiest they offer, but the best that your money can find. And when men live by trade—with reason, not force, as their final arbiter—it is the best product that wins, the best performance, the man of best judgment and highest ability—and the degree of a man’s productiveness is the degree of his reward. This is the code of existence whose tool and symbol is money.

~Ayn Rand

    True wealth indeed! We need more of it today when the physical money is losing its purpose and is ending up as a measure of status and power.

      I read somewhere long back that true wealth is made up of three equally important parts- the money itself; the time and health to enjoy it; and the company of loved ones to enjoy it with. In my mind, since then, true wealth means the optimal balance of all three together. So perfect, isn’t it?
