Money has never made man happy, nor will it. There is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more of it one has the more one wants.
The power of moolah and the seduction it houses has been seen over the ages. While money is not everything, you do need it for everything in life. However, we are mostly confused about how much we must let the moolah dominate us. While we spend all our lives in earning money, little do we understand that it is the devil’s call—fall in love with it and you will lose out on the happy details in life. Therefore, you need to understand that the seduction of money is up there but the balancing act must be initiated by you. It is only you who can drive life and draw in money. The day you let to take control over you—you will be doomed to a dead life.
“He that is of the opinion money will do everything may well be suspected of doing everything for money.”
Inspiration and motivation—treat the moolah as means to understand these concepts. However make sure you steer clear of adjudging the fact that money can do everything. It can indeed make material wonders but an emotional blank can never be fulfilled with hefty sums of money. This is where most of us err. We let money dictate us and dominate our goals. We fail to understand that once we sell our souls to money, we will be punished into an existence whereby no entity can gain peace from us. Knowing where to draw the line between motivation and dominator is the only way to remain away from money’s deadly grip.
“After a certain point, money is meaningless. It ceases to be the goal. The game is what counts.”
A life well spent comes from the relationships we sow and nourish. The ultimate happiness in life comes from having someone to love and fight at in the same breath. Letting money become your sole focus means you quit the game of life without even unfurling its truest meanings. Cultivate relationships and earn to fulfill your goals. Just make sure that money does not remain your only goal.
After all, “Money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish, but it will not replace you as the driver.”
