Whoever coined the saying “money can’t buy you happiness” was probably never poor, or if they were poor at one time they forgot about what it was like when they came up with the saying. I challenge that person to have no money for just a week and then still hold fast to the idea that money doesn’t buy happiness. Others say “money doesn’t buy happiness but it provides you with financial comfort which can make you happy”, well golly gosh that’s what some would say is the same difference. Money does buy happiness and in order to truly enjoy life one must acquire money, lots and lots of money. Get rich, get wealthy, get yours, get money. I think I’ve made myself clear.
The best education costs enough money to feed a small country with at least rice and clean water for a week. A reliable automobile costs a pretty penny, even if it is second hand. Quality and suitable clothing don’t have to be of the utmost in cost but are rarely free. Rent, mortgage, water, heat. Shelter, food, and amenities that should not be considered luxury rather requirements for civilized human living, cost a great deal even if you conserve and use coupons. Hospital and doctor visits are not free of charge. We haven’t even gotten into how expensive having any sort of entertainment in your life will cost. I could rack up a list that would take all day to read so I’ll stop there.
The time is now to really see how much you deserve to enjoy all that life has to offer. Be passionate about life and jump into being successful financially wholeheartedly. If you could do one thing for yourself it should be to get rich. Once you have become wealthy you can enjoy the fine things life has to offer only the rich. If you have an entrepreneurial spirit then get into an investment opportunity that will allow you to profit greatly and see a large return. If it is in your nature to be subordinate then at least discover how you can work your way up in your place of employment, possibly even easing yourself into a position of entrepreneurialism. You have what it takes so when those juvenile and defeatist thoughts come into your mind shoot them down because they’ll get you nowhere. It may be cheesy but you really should only allow positive thinking about what you desire and positive supportive people around you while you’re building your dream. Once you’ve found your niche and discovered what your passionate about and will do well with the money will come streaming in. Each day that we allow ourselves to put achieving our goals and dreams aside we fail. We fail at attaining what is rightfully ours, and that is comfort in life, the ability to go to sleep and wake up rested and knowing another day has come that we can enjoy to the fullest without worry. Scraping by pay check to pay check or over extended on credit cards at the end of each month can only lead to stress and stress related illness, which pretty much every illness is triggered or worsened by stress.
Take some time out for yourself every day to enjoy life, brainstorm about how you can achieve great wealth and never give up until you are financially free. We all have our own idea of what it means to be financially independent and what comfortable living means so it is ultimately up to you how much money you need in order to deem yourself financially rich.
