Money Is a Tool, Not A Goal

Money is a concept almost as old as language. It’s ingrained in the core of society. Unfortunately that gives it a sort of false significance. “If I just made more money everything would be great!” How many times have you heard someone say something like that?  Or how many times have you told yourself, “Once I make more money I’ll spend more time with my family.”

Well, I’ve got bad news for you.  Money itself never made anyone happy. The choices a person makes with their money can contribute to their happiness, but little is gained simply in having it.

If you think money will give you more time to spend with your family, it won’t.  If you think money will solve your problems, it won’t.   The pursuit of money for its own sake will result in less time with loved ones, and will create more problems.

Life Lesson: If you don’t spend time with your family before you have money, you won’t spend time with your family after you have money.

Stop denying, stop delaying and start admitting you need to make changes. 
Second Step: Identify  
Is your problem the real problem?  Or is your “problem” just a symptom of a deeper …
