The source of all evil is money. You can’t buy happiness with money. Money isn’t going to fix your problems. Money, after all, isn’t everything. All of these pessimistic views on money. Opinions rather than facts. It’s no surprise that people are broke, in debt, and struggling. People equate money with greed, evil, and other negative traits.
But, if money is such a problem. So what’s the point of working all week for it? Why do people enter lotteries, create businesses, and travel to Las Vegas in the hopes of winning? Overtime is something that people scratch and claw for. For money, people work two to three jobs. Why? Because they require more. Churches require funds, charities request donations, and schools are constantly pleading for assistance. Those organizations are in desperate need of funds.
You believe you require additional funds to pay your bills, debts, and put food on the table. More money, in reality, will not fix your situation. The majority of folks are still broke despite receiving annual raises. Even though most working people have doubled their salaries, they are still beholden to their debt. You hear horror stories about sportsmen and entertainers who have lost everything. Isn’t it true that they made more money?
The Reality of Money
I started this piece with some of the most well-known money sayings. I refer to them as opinions rather than facts. Money, as I already stated, is the source of all evil. You hear that a lot. “The Holy Bible says it,” many say. That isn’t the case. “For the LOVE of money is the source of all kinds of evil,” Timothy 6:10 states. So don’t be enamored of money.
Money, according to another adage, cannot make you happy. However, research indicates that spending money makes individuals happy. When you get a raise, work extra, or get a tax refund, the first thing that comes to mind is how you’ll spend it.
Money isn’t the only thing that matters. Another point of view, not fact. Why are people working 60-80 hours a week if it isn’t everything? What is the point of all this overtime? Why do we take out loans to pay for trips, furnishings, and appliances? Why are we putting so much effort into repaying the debts that allowed us to buy things we couldn’t afford in the first place? To me, it appears to be everything.
Money has no morals.
Money is neutral. It is neither good nor bad. It’s the same as a brick. A brick can be used to construct a wall, a house, or a structure. Things that may be of assistance to others. It can also be used as a weapon to inflict harm on others. The same brick, but the user choose whether it is utilized for good or evil.
Money is a medium of exchange that allows people to buy and sell goods and services. You can’t damage it since it isn’t emotional. It does not scream. You never lose money; it simply goes somewhere else. It can be multiplied by those who learn to control it. Those that are unable to do so will become bankrupt and in debt. Your money does exactly what you want.
When you remove yourself from money and don’t become emotionally attached to it. You see it as a tool to help you live a better life. Let rid of your preconceived assumptions. Those misunderstood myths that stifle your progress and make you a slave to money. Take charge of your finances and make them work for you.
