Value is a must get in life rather than chasing after money, fame, etc because you get all that when you give out value in exchange.
A True life story about value….
A city had a very good shoemaker, his fame had spread across the all the surrounding cities.
One day, an enemy city invaded the city of the shoemaker, they killed the king his cabinets, they killed every male they could lay their hands on but when they got to the shoemaker, the army general looked at him for a while and changed his mind, he told his soldiers to spare him and when they inquired why he would want to spare him, the general replied, he is the best shoemaker around here, and we’ll need him to fix our shoes.
They spared him because of the value he creates. When money can’t spare anyone, when political name and position can’t help anyone, a man who creates value would flourish.

The more problems you solve in the society, the more value you create for that society and one day the society would be forced to pay for the value you create and the problem you solve.
Those who got money without creating values would soon lose it to those who create values in the society and solves the challenges the society encounters as she grows.
To train a poor man to be rich, teach him to think of a problem in the society that he can solve and let him start solving it. Then let him learn of better ways to solve the problem and never stop learning.
