Today, as most rich people are producers, many who aspire to be rich must aim to be producers. To do so, they must be able to cultivate the traits 6401.1 and values producers ought to have while discarding the consumer characteristics in them. This article will thus show you ways on how producers and consumers differ, allowing you to better develop yourself into a producer.
To start, one way producers and consumers differ is the way they regard affluence. For consumers, money and material wealth is their definition of being rich. Because of this, many of them aim to earn a lot of money without considering whether they would love doing the things to pursue wealth. As a result, they get easily stressed and depressed, reducing their ability to develop their gifts fully to serve people.
For producers, most of them define wealth as attaining happiness for themselves and 6304.1 others through dedicated and principle-based service. Because of this, they have to find what they love to do and concentrate all their efforts on doing this. This allows them to develop their gifts fully, thus creating huge value. When this is done, they get to serve many people and the more they serve, the richer they become.
In addition, producers think abundantly as they believe that there is enough opportunities and prosperity for everyone. As a result, they build teams and welcome talents everywhere to join them, allowing themselves and others to grow rich together. Because of this mutual benefit, people also find it more attracted to follow producers as they know it is hard for them to lose out.
In contrast, consumers focus only on money and foolishly believe that there is not enough opportunities for everyone. As a result, they hoard their opportunities and distrust others, only focusing on their benefit. Because of this, people who potentially wanted to work with them get pulled away as they know that they cannot win much with a loser in charge.
Furthermore, consumers tend to regard material stuff to have intrinsic 6203.1 value and because of this, they work towards it. For example, they believe that having big houses is their symbol of wealth. However, to producers, having material stuff is not their key to intrinsic value.
Instead, they regard people and knowledge to be of true intrinsic value. To them, the existence of material stuff is the fruit of entities with real value and in this case, it would be people and knowledge. People are of intrinsic value to them because producers leverage their talents to win.
For knowledge, it is of great value to them as producers know that knowledge is power. In an interview, someone once asked Henry Ford how long it would take him to earn a billion if he lost his wealth today. Upon thinking for a while, he replied that he only needed 5 years and that was in the 20th century where a billion during that era is worth more than Bill Gates today.
Today, if you asked consumers how much they would take to earn back their wealth, most would be uncertain because they focused on the wrong objectives to attain wealth in the first place. However, if you asked a producer this question, they would usually appear more certain because they know that their skills would be able to help them regain what's lost.
Hence, in conclusion, having covered 3 key aspects producers and consumers differ, I believe readers can now understand how and why it is better to be a producer. This is because it allows everyone to win together happily and it is definitely something few can do.
