Commodities are a wonderful thing to be involved in. A commodity is the generic term for any marketable item produced or skill to satisfy wants or needs. At one time or another Gold was a major Commodity. Coffee was as well. Nowadays knowledge is a major commodity. So are skills. Artistic skills, even labor skills. They are things that cost you nothing to hold onto and people are willing to pay you for those skills… those commodities.
Having a great way with people is still a commodity. It is something anyone would pay to master. Learning how to communicate takes a lot of skill and thus people are willing to pay for it. So when it comes down to the simple idea of commodities, what is it you possess that can help others or earn you gain? It cost nothing to hold onto a skill, to a need or want that others yearn for in you.
Most people carry around this Asset. All be people hold value. We are all truly worth something. So live life as such. What is your time worth? Is it worth $10 an hour before taxes? Are you worth a moment to be heard? Are you being used? Embrace your ability, whatever it is, and know your personal value. You are indeed the greatest asset one can hold on to. Be true to that reality and give your all to what you are, will be and are trying to become.
