“Money and success don’t change people;
They merely amplify what is already there.”
I believe, money, in itself, is a means to an end and not an end unto itself. (just like success is a journey and not a destination..)
This is an important distinction.
Have you heard of those really..really unhappy and *rich* people ? The ones that get depressed or get crazy and drink their lives away or kill themselves?
They are the people, at the first place, who thought that money would bring them happiness.
This is a myth.
Sure, money can help you buy nice things and open up all kinds of doors. But if you don’t have that happiness already, all money is going to do is...give you more sadness...or boredom.
It is an amplifier, and whatever you already feel(and have) will become more intense as you get more of it. This includes unhappiness.
I think...the pursuit of money is really silly.
Instead, it should be the pursuit of things and ideas that bring you money. And for the things that money can help you do or achieve.
To chase money for money’s sake...? Naah!
Do you believe the same?
