One of the most important thing in life before you can be tagged an achiever is the ability to have money, as many termed lack of money a disability. They say money is the root of all evil, I smirked whenever I hear this, isn’t it funny?
I believe it’s a consolation quote for the poor, so that they won’t brood for so long, “Cheer up! ” They would say, “most of the rich people out there are dubious, they’re ungodly, they’re evil”. These are the consolation lines they spelt out to each other.
I’m poor but I know the value of having money, money can mend broken relationships, it can enhance family ties, it can buy you good things, it can buy you good people, it can buy you peace of mind, it can buy you happiness. Someone said,
‘If you say money cannot buy happiness, definitely you don’t know where to shop ‘
Money smells more than perfume, it spreads more than rumours, If a poor man today suddenly come across a large sum of money, He didn’t need to broadcast it to the world, it will radiate on his face, it will raise up his head, it will change his walking steps, it will change the way he talks. People would perceive it on him more than the nauseating stench of a three days old shit.
Many would become your unpaid personal assistant describing you to the world, some will make you there core-course- they will study your life. You will sit in Nigeria, a seat would be reserved for you in the U.S. wow!
Money is the confusion in the market place, from a.m. till p.m. people would parambulate the market- arguing, bargaining, pricing, enticing all just for money. Buyers will come with the hope of buying at large and still retaining money, traders will sit and hope you spend all of it. Then the highest bargaining power prevails.
Money brings about temptation, intimidation and no one want to be on the receiving end. Too many people spend money they earned to buy things they don’t want in order to impress people that they don’t like. A wise person should have money in their head, but not in their heart.
Money is a medium to reach the world, but do so with a good heart. Make sharing the core initiative behind your money spending, don’t just lavish extravagantly.
Also, remember what money cannot buy? Money cannot buy health, it can only manage it, money cannot buy extra life it can only make you enjoy it. Mansa Musa, Pablo Escobar and a lot of rich people that had gone in the past that you know. Picture a scenario when before death they offer money for there life but yet, it looks worthless to the boogeyman.
“It’s good to have money and the things that money can buy, but it’s good, too, to check up once in a while and make sure that you haven’t lost the things that money can’t buy.” –George Lorimer.
