Focus on creating wealth but not without empathy, competence and strong spirituality base, also, support your friends, communities and associates to build wealth and when wealth is spread, power is also acquired and spread.
Power is control, empowerment spread by access to more resources and capacity. Never degenerate so low to use your wealth as a weapon to intimidate and abuse others.
Respect and kindness are the hallmarks of great achievers who have positive legacy to the society.
