What Being Broke Really Means

What Being Broke Really Means

What being broke really meansI read something the other day by Tony Rush that just really gripped me on the subject of being broke and what being broke really means.

What I read gripped me, shocked me, resonated with me, and will most likely ruffle a few feathers to say the least.

In this post, I’m going to challenge you to look at money in a different light; the results may surprise you.

Many people view being broke as meaning you just don’t have any money.

This couldn’t be further than the truth.

Money is only the beginning. When you think about what being broke really means, you have to go deeper and think about the impact (or lack thereof) you are making in the world around you.

When you have money, you can contribute. When you’re broke, you can’t.

(Yes, I just went there).

Here’s a brief quote from what I read by Tony:

“Your creativity is not meant to be spent 100% on trying to meet your own needs. There are other people, other organizations and other projects that desperately need your time, effort and energy…..

….and they aren’t getting it because you’re so busy being broke that there’s nothing left.”

In other words, what being broke really means is that you’re selfish.

Yep, you read that right.

Being broke is one of the most selfish things you can do.
