Félix Beltrán on success

“We are used to understanding people by reference to purchasing power: I have my own design firm, I work in the cafeteria; I have a car, I don’t have a car; I have a house, I don’t have a house; I Have a cell phone, I don’t have a cell phone… The capitalist world constantly molds our values to appreciate money more than the person. Capitalist success is based on how much you have and how much you earn, not on what you give and how much you give. True success in life as a human being is based on being, not on having, on giving not on receiving, on enriching oneself inside, not outside.”
