Money Walls

The Point

The poor don’t how the rich get money. It’s a mystery to them.

To the poor, wealth is a far, distant country on a far, distant continent with a foreign language that they have only heard about in movies and bedtime stories. They fear it, ponder it, covet it, yearn for it, run from it, loath it, love it—but they never know it’s secret:

Wealthy people, the good and the bad, make their money through hard, smart work.

Scaling the walls and crossing the oceans to adopt that truth is as priceless as it is hopeless; yet some do.
