Power or Money

The lady took her niece's hand and ushered her to sit next to her. She was in her late fifties. Her hair was gray and there were some wrinkles under her eyelids,  despite all that, she looked firm and commanding. She was rich, famous and powerful. Her husband died ten years ago leaving her no kids but a great fortune. She has been managing this for a long time. The companies that deal with the petrol were more than five major ones. Two in America, one was in Britain. For the  other two companies, one was in the gulf area and another one was  in Venezuela. There were also the branches for those companies scattered  all over the world. she wanted to train her niece to take care of this huge responsibility.

 Her niece was seventeen and she wanted her to understand how to manage such huge companies after her death. She was telling her about power. The girl was thinking that money was the power. Her aunt told her that money was only a mean to get you somewhere. Power is the target.  If you own the power, money can come easily. The aunt was hoping for the head of the parliament. She was elected as a member six years ago, and she was trying to get to that post since then. That is why she wanted her niece to think about power. But her niece is absolutely different from her. She thinks money is power. You can buy voters to elect you and vote for you. Or you can pay to get whatever you desire, as long as you have the ability to pay for it.

The girl came and sat beside her aunt. It is useless to discuss the matter with her. Each party is convinced with his own ideas. The aunt started to tell her niece to think about power seriously. There is something which cannot enter the little head of that girl. She thought to herself, we have more than fourteen companies all over the world. Our monthly net profit is nearly more than one seventy million dollars a month. My aunt is driving me crazy. What does she need? What is there to be put into consideration?

  • Muito obrigado Rocio de los Angeles Hernandez Loyo! Thanks for pressing the like button.

  • Thanks, Andi Duferense for your meaningful drop. I shall come back later to reply and see that useful link of yours. Thank you.

  • Achieve power, then respect (hopefully) and money will follow.  Achieve nothing but money, then power may elude you but contempt probably won't.

    • Hi Caroline Donohoe. I think it is power according to your choice. Look at what is happening in my country, the people with their guns are pulling the rein. More than two-thirds of our population want a civilian rule, but those who have the power see a different perspective. Thanks, Caroline for your nice comment on that blog. I really appreciate your point of view.


  • It has only been a matter of time before bitcoin has overtaken fiat money as a primary means of payment. And against this backdrop, many people began to make money by trading this particular cryptocurrency. My decision was also to use https://safetrading.today/traders/pump-and-dump-signals/. However, when I first started, I had no idea what was going on. And this website aided my study and understanding of all the nuances. It had a lot of helpful material, and I learned a lot about how to make money trading cryptocurrencies from it. I urge everyone to have a look!

    • Once more, Andi, I will try to check that link. I am interested. Thanks.


    • Dear Andi, first of all, thanks for your nice comment. Second, I need some percentage from this if someone trades on cryptocurrency. I am not greedy or trying to be exploitative but it is up to you and your profit from my blog, Money or Power. I am just joking.

      I hope you gain more customers from this advertisement.  Nevertheless, that link is useful for those who are interested. Thanks, Andi, is it possible to be one of your friends? Thanks again.
