Having money is itself not a useful goal. The question that comes to mind is “Then what?”. Then my friends, the real work and soul searching begins. What is that money you wanted so badly good for? Which purpose does it serve? What goal is reached with the help of said money?
Money is a really simple thing when it comes down to it. It is a tool! It is a means to an end. Just like you wouldn’t strive for having the most or the best hammers just for the sake of having hammers. You don’t want to have money just to have it – like Scrooge McDuck to swim in it? – you want to have it because really you want to have something else…a business, a nice house, some shoes, the new iPhone (I cannot wait for the anniversary iPhone in September!!!!).
So when you are out there chasing the money remember – it’s a tool! Use it wisely. Don’t become its tool.
Here is a little printable to remind you 🙂
