Bill Gates' hard work, dedication, and his intelligence has helped him accomplish feats that took him to the top spot. Millions look up to his genius and get inspiration. However, this particular quote by him promotes scarcity mindset. Abundance is there on the Earth so much so that human needs for all the 7.5 billion can easily be satiated. It’s ironic other than human beings everything else is Rich on the planet. Human understanding of life needs to shift and align with the reality of abundance.
Money is not a natural thing but an imaginary value only in the perception of the human race. Human beings invented money as a medium to value the stuff on earth. It is a tragedy that today they use the same to value another human being. Living is experiencing which can not be valued in money.
