Which do you choose: 1 billion dollars is added to your bank account, no strings attached OR you're given the gift persuasion at levels no human has had before and the opportunity to reach as many minds as possible. Every day, you would have to get up and work almost tirelessly to spread your word around the earth. In the end, your words would finally lead humanity to reach everlasting world peace and fair distribution of all resources, but the effects would only be visible after you and everyone you know have passed away.
For added clarity on the persuasion option, no, you won't see any visible effects in the world's economy and resource distribution, but you will see in the eyes of everyone that you speak to that they believe in your vision for a better future and will work to achieve it. You also have the knowledge that a better, peaceful world will definitely come to pass, just not until after you've gone.
