Life is not all about money because money cannot buy you everything. Money cannot necessarily buy you happiness or make you as happy as you think it might make you, because being wealthy can also bring its own issues and as far as I know, not all rich people are happy people. They have some similar issues and the same fears as everyone else.
We have heard the stories of people who have made fortunes but lost themselves. We have heard about people winning the lottery but also finding plenty of misery and we have heard the stories of families being torn apart with inheritance struggles. We hear and see how people steal from others and even kill for money and these are the tragedies of money. Money is not evil or the root of evil. It is simply a necessity but the lengths to which people go to obtain money and the things that we do with or for money is what cultivates something else.
There are crooked ways and there are straight forward ways to good fortune. If you can find the straight forward way and find balance along the way, then money should work for you, without you finding plenty of misery or becoming a tragic monetary story. Another type of tragedy to the money story is having the potential and or the capability to make money yourself but spending the rest of your life making it for someone else or wasting your imagination, natural and creative talents. This tragedy can only be avoided by accomplishing or creating what was imagined or granted to the mind.
If becoming a millionaire was easy, everyone would be a millionaire but it would appear that life as we know it is not meant to be that way. Making money is easy, because we all make money one way or another. The problem is that it disappears quickly or everyone else is trying to take it away from you, especially the corporations. The trick lies with multiplication and making what you do have multiply itself and or work for you. The trick lies with always having more than you spend and finding different ways to improve your financial situation. Many of us live from pay check to pay check and many have no pay check but that is simply a hurdle that must be overcome. It has been done before and it can be done again by you.
If you are in a position where you are getting tired of receiving 1-800 or 1-866 phone call, then you know that it is definitely time to take care of your finances. If you find yourself shifting payments forward in time, because you are allowed to do so, then you know that it is time to take care of your finances. If you are worried as a parent about having an empty fridge or putting food on the table for your children, or paying for them to go on field trips, it is time to take care of your finances or time to make more money. If there are places that you want to go and things that you must do but cannot because of the finances, then you know that it is time to get better financially.
You already know how much you have spent in your life time, so imagine how much more you are going to have to spend. You know how much your bills are taking away from you and the additional charges for the privilege of credit or paying someone in installments. You know how difficult it can be and you need to make it better.
Staying in the same situation is not going to make it better. Getting more credit is not going to make it better, unless of course such credit is used to create something phenomenal. If you do nothing, then nothing changes. being smart with what you have can make it better. Being responsible with your spending and your credit can make it better. Making more money can make it better, if you are sensible enough not to create more unnecessary expenditures.
In order to thrive financially you do need money and you need to be very creative about it one way or another. You have to find a way to make it work for you. You have to find a way to supplement what you are already making, create something unique, provide a brilliant service or you continue to struggle.
You have to get out of the box that you put yourself in or allowed circumstances to put you in and there are ways to do it, especially if you are educated, smart, intelligent ,talented and or creative. Sometimes we tend to forget our original blessings or just give up on them eventually. Use your God given gifts as well as your education and or experience to march forward to a better financial future. Serve others, if you must but also serve yourself well. Plant your financial seeds well and watch them grow. Do not put all your eggs in one basket for one day that basket could get torn apart or taken away from you.
Wake up and take care of your finances. Wake up and effectively accomplish or create the things that lie in your mind and will lead to your own good fortune and a more comfortable life. Wake up and work towards not having to worry about how to or if you can even rob Peter to pay Paul. Wake up and be a symbol of financial success.
