Nelson Mandela – Money Won’t Create Success

Nelson Mandela - Money Won't Create Success

“Money won’t create success, the freedom to make it will.”

– Nelson Mandela

With so many different conflicts in this world which can be highlighted by a strictly financial outlook, like income gaps, recessions, an unbalanced tax economy, and limited social services in parts of the country and beyond. Nelson Mandela was a man who understood that the implication of money is opportunity, and when citizens are stripped of the opportunity and the freedom to make money, there is only destruction and social turmoil.

Nelson Mandela was an anti-apartheid revolutionary in South Africa, the country’s first elected black chief executive, and the first elected president in a fully representative democratic election.

Nelson Mandela knew about freedom and opportunity because he knew how much he could afford both and maximized all the opportunities he had.
