Better than Gold

Posted: October 3, 2016 in Uncategorized

What is better than gold? Platinum right? maybe, but what if I told you that I know something that is better than Platinum and gold?

Better is such a subjective word but I think it is true in this circumstance I do know something that is better than Gold, Platinum and all the precious metals.

So Columbus set sail and ran into the Americas. Immediately after, hitting shore and realizing that it was not India (which he did figure out despite folk lore), Columbus set up a system to enslave the indigenous population and send them looking for gold. Everyone in Europe wanted gold it was important. When the Pilgrims began settling the new world they did so looking for gold. Problem was not much gold was discovered and the Europeans did not know what crops to plant in the new world.  The native Americans introduced the Europeans (the ones who listened and did not kill them) to corn and corn is what is better than gold. See? You can eat corn and then you will not die. Can’t eat gold can you?

Think about the sacrifices you have made for your career. Done? At the end of the day we all work because we get paid and at the end of the day we all get paid so that we can eat. But see we cant eat money can we? Nope so we need to exchange money for food.

I saw a man the other day with a sign that read “will work for food” and I thought that’s what I am doing right now man. We all work for food don’t we? Sort of but then after we get enough food we work for other things and we work more and more and get more and more and at the end of the day we are working for food, clothes shelter cars tv and stuff. I wonder do I need and even want all the stuff. Time spent working after my needs are meet is that the best use of my time?

These are the questions aren’t they? I think the answer is very subjective and I wish you luck on getting the answers.
