A MEANS TO AN END

Most people don't really know what money is and if one doesn't know its meaning, how can one possibly get it.
Money is never an end in itself. Money is a means to an end
Money is just the tool to help us reach our vision. Money is a means that allows us to reach our end goals.
The reason you hear people say that money cant buy happiness is because those people whose mentality was to have more and more money were disappointed.
Often we confuse means with ends and sacrifice happiness (end) for money (means). Money in itself doesnt bring you fulfillment.
However, if you recognize that money is there to help you meet your needs and reach your visions, then it has been seen that money actually can contribute to happiness. But thats because money is not the end goal.
Money is simply a tool that helps us achieve our vision of a better future.
For example; People that just say "I want to have money" take money as an end in itself.
But if u say;
"I need money to do a particular worthwhile thing" e.g "I need money to establish a company or to bring up a dreamed family" e.t.c. U take/see money as means to an end.
The bigger your end (aim), the bigger your means (money)
Making money a means has a meaningful why attached to it. With a why its very easy to figure out the how
In summary, money is not an end in itself, it is a means to an end. People that make money an end in itself easily go into vices, corruption, bribery, etc to make money.

If you want to be an icon, you have to start seeing money as a means to an end. Whatever and whoever you have and intend to become in life, money is a great determinant that will make you become such.
