Writing Yourself Rich

One of the other obstacles towards loving my neighbor that has fallen since I began this business journey is the objection, "He only got rich by writing the book on how to get rich." As I read various books, I tried to put myself in the shoes of the rich man.

OK, I'm retired at 38. Wouldn't it be great if I could teach all my friends what I know so that they too could be retired? Our kids could play all the time and maybe we could start up that Bible Study which we never can find a good time for.

For the first time, it seemed eminently logical and kind to write a book about success in business. I do want all of my friends to be successful, so why wouldn't rich guys want the same thing?
