Benjamin Franklin once said that money has never made people happy. Money can’t buy happiness, and the more you have the more you want.
You will understand the importance of money once you grow old. Money gives you security, and being poor isn’t the ideal scenario. When people grow up in poor households, they tend to become rich.
Let’s get one thing straight. There’s nothing wrong with having money, but prioritizing money over anything will give you a lot of problems. If you want to be happy, stop thinking about money. You are looking for an answer at the wrong place.
Do you know what happens to Hollywood stars? They get stuck with drugs, alcohol, depression and addictions. Robin Williams committed suicide and he struggled with depression. He was a wealthy and successful person, but money couldn’t make him happy.
Money can’t buy happiness and many other things:
Money can’t give you love. You may be attracted to a wealthy person, but you won’t get love. Money is a method of exchange, and that’s all. You use money to pay for things. Money will make you empty, and you will never feel loved.
Money will give you influence, but truth is the most influential force. You may use money to push an agenda, but money wins in the short term. You can’t hide the truth.
Time goes by, and you will never bring it back. You may think it’s morbid and depressing, but that’s the truth. Your life starts fading away from the moment you are born.
Can you extend life? There’s no practical way of doing that. The fountain of youth doesn’t exist. Money won’t make you young again.
Taking care of your thoughts will give you peace. Turn the bad things in your life into a positive experience.
Governments spend millions of dollars in the name of “peace.” Is the world a peaceful place to live in? Not really. People die every day because of someone’s power.
Having millions of dollars in your bank account won’t help you sing great. Money can’t buy you talent or skills. The mental processes and dexterity of the mind and body can never be bought. Keep his in mind.
Money can give you medicine, but you will never replace your health once you lose it. Exercise, prevention and natural self-care cost almost nothing. Celebrities spend a lot of money to keep their natural beauty, but they forget that aging is natural and beautiful at the same time. Implants and chemicals won’t restore your natural beauty.
Being rich won’t give you class. Just take a look at Kim Kardashian. Your can’t buy manners. That’s all.
8. True friends
If you are rich, you will attract people who want to be your friends, but that doesn’t mean that they will be real. You can’t buy happiness, love and friends. Simple as that.
Real friends won’t even pay attention to your bank account.
Money makes you feel invincible, and you end up making bad decisions. You may think you know things, but do you know how to apply all that knowledge?
10. Presence & acceptance
Being present and accepted is really important and it relates to every situation. It’s a gift; you can’t buy it. The ability to be present and accept each moment in life is better than all the money in this world.
You may think that money can give you whatever you want, but that’s absolutely wrong. Money can’t make you healthy, beautiful and loved. Keep this in mind next time you wish for a fortune.
