Money is good and it can be bad as well depending on how you see it. Money is good because it can afford you a desired lifestyle and help fund each of your life's goals like getting married and have a family, buying a big house or travelling around the world.
There is no doubt that money has more pros than cons. The bad things associated with money are normally due to men's greed and misused of it.
Money is bad when for example you have to work hard and spend most of your hours slaving to earn that money. There are people who likes working and are self-professed workaholics. It is a matter of choice here. Others have no choice but to toil hard to earn a living.
What's your choice?
The question is, given the choice, would you want to work hard and earn lots of money to afford a high-flying lifestyle or kick back a bit and just have enough to enjoy a moderate lifestyle?
Different people will choose differently depending on one's personal desires or expectations. Your priorities will also dictate the choice that you will make.
I used to wonder why a person, a husband or wife, can choose to work away from home travelling often due to work demands. The immediate impression is of a person who puts work, career and money ahead of the family. I do not make judgments now as I realize that my values and priorities are different from others. I prefer to be able to stay at home and not stray far from the family. I work at a job that does not demand that I travel around. My priorities are having a happy family life and good health, first and foremost.
Fortunately, my spouse has the same viewpoint about work and money. We have enough money to cover for lifeâ€™s necessities and future funding (by our standards) and at the same time we do not work ourselves to death over money. Of course, we do not get to live a luxurious lifestyle like going on expensive holidays and traveling to exotic places but we do get to enjoy family life together which is our top priority.
So, what is your priority?
