Money is defined as something generally acceptable as a medium of exchange, a measure of value, or a means of payment ( Merriam-Webster). We all slaves to money, we already made money a king so we all going to work for it, It could give you almost everything you desire apart from things life e.t.c.
The bible says the love for money is the root of all evil, true but we all love money, who doesn’t? does that mean we all evil? or have the root planted in us? We live in a world where money is a necessity, you don’t get anything good without money be it respect, love,job,education e.t.c.
Money would make an old man call you Sir, Money would get you your dream girl and so many goodies but the negative part of money over weighs the positive
― Douglas Adams,
The craze for money is killing us, we don’t really know who really love us and who doesn’t, we forget the most important thing in life for temporary things
“Everyone wants to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.”
― Oprah Winfrey
Many people would look down on you just because you broke, your partner would leave you for a richer partner and your neighbors won’t even respect you. What’s funny is the people who has this money would treat you as shit, like they are a God only few of them are humble. Some would build a mansion in a street with bad road and won’t do anything about it, some would even splash you with water in the side walk and won’t even say sorry
“There’s no way that Michael Jackson or whoever Jackson should have a million thousand droople billion dollars and then there’s people starving. There’s no way! There’s no way that these people should own planes and there people don’t have houses. Apartments. Shacks. Drawers. Pants! I know you’re rich. I know you got 40 billion dollars, but can you just keep it to one house? You only need ONE house. And if you only got two kids, can you just keep it to two rooms? I mean why have 52 rooms and you know there’s somebody with no room?! It just don’t make sense to me. It don’t.”
― Tupac Shakur.
Money is good but that shouldn’t be what we live for and that shouldn’t determine if you successful or not.
“Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.”
Your mindset determine how you feel nobody should decide your happiness, ain’t nothing bad in aiming for better things but don’t lose yourself. After all happiness is what we crave for, Be contented and know what makes you happy for me I’d rather see my family in good health smiling in a bungalow than be alone in a mansion with hate and greediness running in the family even though I’d choose the latter in the mansion.
Greed, Hatred, Lust, Pride just some of the virtues money bring, Hustle hard and aim bigger but remember we are all here for a purpose, Everything on earth is VANITY.
