Over-inflating the importance of money is the root of all evil.

Mindset Mondays with DTK – Ep #082 — Meet Impact Billionaire, Robbin Jorgensen!

Despite the old adage to the contrary, money is not the root of all evil. Over-inflating the importance of money is the root of all evil. When we measure our success, our value, our worth, our importance, or our impact by the amount of money we make, have, or save, we give money undeserved power and we start down a soul-crushing spiral. Yes, that sounds dire. I get it. Because it IS.

For me, in my world, and in my work, the true measure of success is the number of lives made better, NOT the number of dollars amassed. Seems that Clayton Christensen agrees:

“Don’t worry about the level of individual prominence you have achieved;
worry about the individuals you have helped become better people.”

I’m not impressed by Jeff Bezos’ $130 billion dollar fortune. I’m not impressed by the Koch Brothers’ billions. Nor the war chests amassed by Mark Zuckerberg or Elon Musk. What moves me is the IMPACT that those billions can have. Traditional billionaires, those who have at least $1B in net worth, are not heroes to me. Those who have, are on track to, or are driven by the insatiable desire to positively impact one billion lives … THEY are my heroes! They are the Impact Billionaires.

And on this week’s live episode of Mindset Mondays with DTK, you’ll get to meet an Impact Billionaire.

How big will your impact footprint be?
