Henry Ford Quote – Money Doesn’t Equal Independence

Henry Ford Quote - Money Doesn't Equal Independence

“If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.”

-Henry Ford

All of us have uttered the phrase, “once I have money I will …..” And I can’t fault you for it, it’s easy to do. But you can’t really hold out for independence with the thought of “when I have money, I’ll be independent”, it doesn’t work that way. Building up your intellectual resume is what will give you independence and security in life. Knowledge, whether it be continuing education, or street smarts is vital. Experience life, don’t let actions you take go in one ear and out the other, learn from them. The ability to learn from mistakes (they don’t have to be yours) and gaining experience in what you learn will give you stability and financial independence.
