2. Money isn’t everything.

While money may not be everything, no money is not anything.  Many people hate admitting that money means a lot.  To overcome this love for money, people rationalize with sayings like:

“Money Can’t Buy Happiness”

“Money Can’t Buy Love”

“People Who Love Money Are Selfish”

The list goes on an on.  The fact is, money is not the main objective.  Most successful people know that money leads to financial freedom, and financial freedom leads to happiness, love, and charity.  Most stress comes from tough monetary decisions.  Should I invest in a new car today or do I need to save this money so I can buy groceries for my family at the end of the week?  When you create a financially free life for you and your family, you create a happy, stress-free environment.

Many couples argue over money.  Women love to shop.  Men love their toys (cars, tools, grills, etc.).  Go back through the past month of your life.  How many times during the past month have you argued with a parent, child, spouse, partner, etc. about money?  I’m sure it happens quite often.  Now think about how the past month would be if you removed all of those arguments dealing with money in any way.  Which life do you prefer?

While money may not be everything in life, the ability to live without financial obligations provides a great life for us all.  Money is not the direct cause of happiness, but it is definitely a product of happiness.  Don’t let others put you down if you are money-hungry.  Keep working and stay money conscious to create the life you deserve; free from money troubles, arguments with people you love, and major stress.  Work hard for money now, and make a better life for many people around you.
