“A business that makes nothing but money is a poor kind of business.”
Money isn’t everything is a phrase we often hear right? But how often do businesses or people in general view that or even live that mantra for that matter? In today’s quote American industrialist Henry Ford reminds that if our only goal in life is to make money than is a poor business. I think he believed this because making money only serves one thing and one thing only: the person or business that sought out to that in the first place. It only serves themselves which when you think about it is rather selfish.
Now I believe our purpose as a business or even as an individual is solely to serve others. That to me is the most profitable thing we can do is serve one another. It rewards itself time and time again and the more you do it, you will forever be rich from within. What is truly better than that?
Our moral values are based in my opinion of what our why is. My why has been and will always be to serve. Knowing that I have the opportunity to do this each and everyday is a true gift and one that I look forward to doing always. For this, I am the wealthiest person in the world.
What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards defining/refining your own moral compass?
