A couple of different words have the influence of money to incite such compelling human feelings.
Many of us refuse to talk about money. Similarly to religion, sex or even politics, these topics are rather taboo for dinner conversations and often off-limits in formal workplace cultures. Wealth can be discussed in some good-natured company but money however, is very explicit. It's intensely personal and highly charged. It can make individuals feel regretful when they have it, or embarrassed when they don't.
What does money actually mean?
For a fraction of us, money is considered something vital, a need in order to survive but it doesn’t dominate our lives. It’s basically a tool, source of power utilised in service of others and a life well lived. Others are consumed with such a craving for money that it destroys them and everyone around them. To a point where some of them are willing to give up things that are significantly more valuable to get money such as, their health, time, family, self-worth and, now and again, even their integrity.
The bottom line, money is about power.
We've all perceived how cash can have the ability to make or the ability to destroy. It can either fund a dream or start a war. You can gift money or use it as a weapon. It can be utilised to express your spirit, creativity and ideas as well as your dissatisfaction, anger and hate. It can be utilised to impact governments and people. Some marry for it–and then find out its real price.
Be that as it may, we all know that on some level it's an illusion. Money isn't even gold or paper today, its zeros and ones in banking computers. What is it? It's like a shape-shifter or a canvas, assuming whatever meaning or emotion we project on it.
In the end, money isn't what we're after. It’s rather the feelings, the emotions, we think money can create. The feeling of:
- Helping those we love and those in need
- Having a choice
- Feeling alive
Money is surely one of the ways we can transform the fantasies we have into the reality we live. Yet, regardless of the fact that money is only a perception, a conceptual idea, it doesn’t feel that way if you had enough of it. What's more, one thing is without a doubt: You either utilise it, or it utilises you. You either master money, or, in some way or another, money becomes your master.
Whatever it is, the way you deal with money directly reflects on how you deal with power and authority. Pain or gift? A game or a burden?
The most ideal approach to change your life is to discover individuals who've as of now accomplished what you want and then model their behavior. Want to master your finances? Find a financial master and imitate how he or she deals with money, and you will have found a pathway to power.
Having interviewed many of the wealthiest in the world today, majority of them consider money as a game. Why else would anyone work 10 or 12 hours a day after they've made billions of dollars? Games are an impression of life. A few people sit on the sidelines, and some play to win. How would you play? I need to remind you, this is a game that you and your family cannot afford to lose.
How might you feel in the event that you didn't need to stress over heading off to an office each morning, or paying the bills, or financing your retirement? What would it mean to know you had the opportunity to start your own business, or that you could afford to buy a home for your folks, and send your kids to college, or have the freedom to travel the world?
How would you live your life if you could wake up every day knowing there was sufficient cash coming in to cover not only your essential needs as well as your objectives and dreams?
In all actuality, a ton of us would continue working, since that is the way we're wired. But we'd do it from a position of bliss and plenitude. Our work would proceed, yet the rat race would end. We'd work because we want to, not because we have to.
That's financial freedom.
Is it truly feasible for the normal individual – all the more critically, for you- – to make this fantasy a reality?
Whether you need to live like the 1 percent or simply have the peace of mind knowing that you won't outlast your funds, in all actuality you can simply figure out how to make the money you need. How? The secret to wealth is simple: Find a way to do more for others than anyone else does. Become more valuable. Accomplish more. Give more. Be more. Serve more. What's more, you will have the chance to earn more- whether you own a highly profitable business, or you’ve been the top salesperson of your company for 3 years running, or even the founder of a successful phone application.
