“Why There’s No Such Thing as a Gifted Child”

Thankfully, we are each uniquely gifted. Our inherent talents, curiosity, and encouragement reveal, develop, and utilize our unique abilities, hopefully when we are young, but it is never too late to become the best version of ourselves.

“The World’s Wealthiest Family Gets $4 Million Richer Every Hour”

https://www.bloomberg.com/features/richest-families-in-the-world/?utm_source=pocket-newtab

True wealth though is not about what one has, but about how one acquires financial wealth and what one does with it.
 
My own experience with wealthy people inspires me not to be like them or many of these folks listed in the following linked article. I remember how awful I felt working for such people and also how I felt when I took a trip to a severely impoverished country: I just couldn’t enjoy myself. Back then, it made me wonder how many of these people live as they do, but now I know how so I feel sorry for them and those they inspire to acquire wealth without heart.

“Self-Made Millionaires: This is the greatest paradox of wealth–and most people fail to recognize it”

“The Maid Who Mapped the Stars”

More proof we never know from where or from whom big ideas will spring forth and change the world for the better.

Williamina Fleming was just supposed to help the director of the Harvard Observatory with household tasks. Instead, she changed the course of astronomy.

Innovative thinking needed to solve the housing and homeless crisis

“These garage flats could represent a lot more than the opportunity for an extra stream of income for homeowners. Proponents say they could help remedy cities’ housing problems, and even fight homelessness.”

“Where is Workforce Really Booming? Among the Oldest Workers”

Why We Wrote This

“By conventional reckoning, someone at 65 years old or even 55 is “retirement age.” But labels are being lifted as older people stay active – and as employers see value in hiring them.”
