I am currently reading, The Science of Getting Rich, by Wallace D. Wattles. Here is one of the quotes that stuck out to me…
“Every man who becomes rich by competition throws down behind him the ladder by which he rises, and keeps others down; but every man who gets rich by creation opens a way for thousands to follow him, and inspires them to do so.”
The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles,
Published in 1910
The quote hit home with me because I used to teach that innovation was important in the increasingly competitive global environment. I now teach innovation as essential tool to compete, but more importantly to collaborate! None of us can survive as a desert island!
