Money for me is everything because everything has a cost.For this reason,you cannot afford anything which makes you poor.You probably wouldn't even survive without any money.For this reason money is everything it could even be your life.Please give me your honest opinion and say what you think money is to YOU.
From a person that came from a poor background with no privilege standpoint, money is the essential part of life. It determines the quality of life, it determines your mindset, it builds your selfesteem with which you can find a partner which suits you. I havent worked since my late 20's, so i had time to experience a better quality of life, and was able to date women i teally was attracted to. So yes money will buy you happyness.
Money, or the lack of it determines how we live. If you don't have millions of dollars you are not living in Palm Beach. The amount of money that you have affects your choices in life. "Can I afford to go on vacation?" " Can I afford to eat steak tonight" etc. Money has the value of purchasing goods and services. Whenever we choose to buy one thing over another we have experienced what is called an opportunity cost. You have to give up one thing to attain another. Family, friends and love cannot be bought, this is true, but if you have a little bit more money you will probably enjoy life a lot more!
Money is a representation of other things and has no inherent value. How much something costs is actually presented in a manner of how much time one believes they should dedicate to a goal or object. The reason the term "Time is Money" is popularized is because time literally is money, or rather the Time-Value of Money, is a very real thing in which money always gains value over time. To that end having a higher pay grade actually is a reflection of how valuable your time is (which means you pay in "time" for everything under the sun when you use any type of currency) in relation to the task which is why certain jobs that have lower grades than others are so upended and controversial despite the value of those jobs being very different and rarely explored fully.
Yes, money is important. Very important, that is. It is god's honest truth.
But then, to say money is everything ... Not true. For me, there are many other things money can never buy. Like real love, real happiness and etc. Money is often blinded by greed and status, you will never know whether people like you for your money or your true self. Only when you lose all your money, you will know who is the real people around you. Whatever it is, money is still very important, but it is not everything.
Imagine the richest man and the poorest man. Everyone would think the rich man's life's complete but does he have real love, a spouse that didn't marry him for his money? Or true friends? Is he happy? Is his life better than the poor man's life? Does he even have the opportunity to those key aspects?
Sadly, I must agree that many act as though money is everything. I, however, don't believe this. Money may gain you food, a nice place to live, and other benefits in life, but does it gain you happiness?
Many wise people out there know that happiness can only be pursued by doing what you love, and gaining money may be the way that you and others get happy. But for some people, their job is just to live. The world does not require money.
Money is practically an organizational system for people to obtain goods. Distinguishing the actual value of something would be completely hard and people would technically rip each other off if one didn't know the value of what he was giving away. Money isn't necessarily everything though, it is an organizational method for getting anything.
