It is believed that money is the root of all evil.
Yes, it could be but it is not all true. We need money and if used well, it is the greatest material asset you could have. But, if you let yourself get carried away with the things and the services money could afford without proper discretion and discipline, it can result in some very negative outcomes.
Money could be an angel and save you from worry, it can give you a life of comfort and convenience, but, on the other hand, it could lead to a whole new world of complications.
Mo’ Money Mo’ Problems
We are a very materialistic society now; there are many Material Girls and Boys, living in a Material World. There is a threshold of possessions and fulfillment that people struggle to personally gauge and are left feeling frustrated.
An example is when you really want something like a new phone, so you work hard to get it and after a day you don’t care anymore and are now frustrated because there is something else that you want, that frustration and feeling of unhappiness that you thought would be cured with your new iPhone, was only satisfied for a day and is now back with vengeance.
The situation of always feeling frustrated due to something that is temporarily of of your reach is never ending and even if you achieve immense financial wealth, but haven’t been able to battle defeat the impulse demons the feeling of frustration will continue.
Remember there are extremely rich, unhappy people driving Bugatti’s, surrounded in Hotties, hanging at all the celebrity parties, that take purposely take huge risks out of impulse and lose their fortunes, get into heavy drug and pharmaceutical use because they still feel empty and eventually lose or take their life.
The feeling of success is the goal; possessions are arbitrary to a successful mind.
I ain’t gots to do s**t, no more, just pay someone. People can get far too reliant on money and then laziness is triggered. This of course plunges down on the dignity of working and accomplishment.
To hard working people doing nothing sounds AMAZING… for a week; in fact most call this a vacation. Everyone needs downtime, but downtime is not a way of life and if you try to do nothing all the time you begin to feel that way.
Money can cause greed and selfishness for most modern-day people and the capitalistic society that we live in promotes greed and selfishness but… that is horse s**t. It is a corporate agenda that convinces society stop fighting for happiness and equality and give into greedy corporations. It is already working and looks like it will continue.
Greed is an enemy to health and happiness. It leave a wake of destruction in it’s path and the ultimate goal is usually the self-actualization that it doesn’t or hasn’t mattered all along. That or death, some people get into so deep they can never recover and just die a d**k, it’s a bit of a crapshoot here.
Relationships, if you are impulsive and greedy, good luck, probably not going to end well. Relationships are broken due to the disagreement in money matters. Feuds blow up when money is at stake, and of course marriages blow up. If money is your #1 true love at the moment do not cheat on her with another because it won’t work out.
Eventually you will change or die alone, just stay true to you.
Large amounts of money can lead to what is regarded as “Gutsy” decisions and gambles. No matter how much money you have, there is no quicker way to reverse your fortune into a debt than through gambling.
This may come as a shock to many, but people are always looking to steal money. If you have no money and steal it, then go to jail, chances are your life just got worse. If you have money and did not protect it and it got stolen and left you with no chance to recover it, chances are your life just got worse.
People kill, die, and make a mess out of lives pursuing the bucks, is it worth it?
You can never be too rich or too powerful to have an unhealthy obsession with money to the point that you will commit crimes. Once you get to a certain level of power crimes are called corruption, this is to protect rich people from poor people jails.
It looks like there is a good chance the Trump Administration will explain this in greater detail 😛
It is obvious that money is not evil, it can simply be replaced with gold, or credits, or Bitcoin, or fancy cars, or drugs, or oil, or food in certain situations, the problem is with misguided people.
Having money is fantastic. But the absolute truth is that money alone will not make you happy and if you are not right inside, it can cause a lot of problems.
Rich or poor, work on you, strive for happiness and find inner peace. Let go of anger, greed, and ego and pursue happiness.
Nothing pairs better with money than happiness, and a nice Bordeaux with some real good Brie.
