It doesn't matter where we go or what we do but we always hear someone say, "We need to redistribute the wealth."  We could hear it on the street, or in the staff room at work, we often see it on television or hear it on the radio or read it in the newspapers or magazines.  We quite often see it written on the internet that we need to redistribute the wealth.  Amazingly, it's also said quite commonly by people who have quite a large amount of wealth themselves.

People like corporate CEOs, media personalities and owners, actors and rock stars all regularly say that the world's financial wealth needs to be redistributed.  They will stand on high and proclaim it... until you ask them to hand theirs over.  All of a sudden they shut up and sink into the background.  Of course they want the wealth redistributed, as long as it's not their wealth we're talking about, or as long as more of it is redistributed to their bank accounts.  It's amazing how quickly some of these people disappear into thin air as soon as you say, "Alright then, cough up."

Now before I continue let me categorically state that this is not a criticism of people who are wealthy.  It is a criticism of people who are financially ignorant on the subject of wealth and it's distribution, and you'd be surprised just how many rich people don't have a clue about financial issues.

But let me go a step further and state, again, categorically, that I am in fact completely and totally in favour of redistributing the wealth.  Quite a bit of it into my pockets, and quite a bit of it into yours.  The entire issue, as far as I'm concerned, is how do we decide fairly what is the best way to redistribute the wealth?

I mean, let me put this way as an example.  Let's say you've worked hard and smart for a few years now and you've accumulated yourself a million or seven dollars (if you're not following me, just imagine it.  If you can't imagine it, the first thing  I want you to go out and buy yourself with your next paycheque is a bigger imagination).  Okay, so you've worked hard and you've worked smart and you've built yourself into a multi-millionaire.  Then one day you're walking along the street with a business associate discussing the state of the economy and how the wealth needs to be redistributed.  As luck would have it, I overhear you and turn around and say, "Then give us a bit.  Redistribute some of that wealth my way."

Now, let's imagine for a second that your response is along the lines of "Go get your own."  Believe it or not, that's actually a perfect response.

One of the reasons I mention the likes of Robert Kiyosaki, Donald Trump, T Harv Eker, John Assaraf, Dr Joe Vitale and entrepreneurs of that calibre is that they all have one thing in common.  They all believe in redistributing the wealth of the world and they would all rather work in collaberation than in competition.  The important qualifier is, though, that they all believe that the fairest way to redistribute the wealth of the world is to teach people how to create their own wealth.

They teach people that the one thing that the wealthy invest in that the poor and middle-class don't invest in is themselves, their education about wealth and their own self-confidence in creating it.

So now, having taken all that in, thinking about redistributing the wealth of the world more fairly, how are you going to take action to do it?
