People get to say that, value is more important simply because, they think that as a good person all you need to have are very good values, but here is the situation am a good person in the society not rich, not successful, can’t donate and being the best I can but people don’t come to me for any moral value advice or don’t even want to associate with me because they get the impression that am a failure not accomplished because am not rich or better still have not made it in life, but then am a good person I uphold my values very well, whereas that drug dealer leaving down the road has got all the money, seen as accomplished, fulfilled and made it in life, people rush to him for advice on how to be successful, rich and even some turn to want to be like him. Because of what? ”MONEY”
Come to think of it what is this value at all; the encyclopedia defines it as the accepted principles or standards of a person or a group of people, I then turn to ask myself, what, who determines and makes these values, whether someone is upholding his or her values, the standard set for one to attain before seen as upholding his value?, the answer is not farfetched, this is the very same people who we term as being, secured, have their freedom, seen as accomplished, making a difference in our societies, helping people out, being the best that they can, and those seen as knowing the purpose of life and fulfilling them. What do we use to classifier people under these categories of individuals, obviously the amount or level of worth they have accumulated which we term as being successful, what makes up this success, “MONEY”……… The universal regard for money is the one hopeful fact in our civilization. Money is the most important thing in the world. It represents health, strength, honor, generosity and beauty. “George Bernard Shaw” (1856 – 1950).
Also I try to consider those who say that they want the so called “simply life”, it amasses me to know that they state that they will need to uphold their value which is very paramount and most important to them, comes before anything else but finally end up by saying that they will only need moderate amount of money, not much but then comfortable amount of money to make them live their “simple life”, is very clear that they need “MONEY” too.
Values are not the same as goals. Goals are the tangible results we seek. They require money in other to be achieved or accomplished. Talk about those who want to make this world a better place or make a difference in their societies they need “MONEY”, money is not the end, but is definitely the means to the end……… And in the end it’s not the years in your life that counts; it’s the life in your years. ”Abraham Lincoln”.
I have also found out that, those who say that money is not everything don’t normally have financial problems, I think being financially stable means or gives you the freedom to enjoy yourself. While money may not actually bring you happiness, having no money can certainly make you very unhappy.
In a nut shell, I can certainly say that money is more important and even turns out to be what sets the value we claim to be more important than the money.
Love is more important than money
Everyone always wishes to have the best in life; people think that winning a lottery or working hard to advance their career to come to the top CEO of a multinational company will bring them all the happiness in the world. Many people imagine that if they have money, they will have everything in life. They imagine that they will not run out of money, hence, everything will be all right. It is not surprising to find people working throughout from 7.00am in the morning to late at night to be rich because they believe that being rich is finding true happiness.
For some people, happiness is having lots of money to be able to buy a big house or afford the latest sports car. Naturally, humans need to be loved and have a sense of belonging; money cannot buy love and affection, it only provides temporary joy. Money is necessary but not important because money only helps us meet our basic needs like food, clothes, and shelter it cannot buy emotion. Money can only buy love temporarily. Such love will end once the money is over. Even if we buy all the luxuries like cars, big houses and live in a posh neighborhood, it is until we find love that we will have a fulfilling life.
Living a luxurious life does not mean that you are happy and contented with life; love is important for emotional and personal development. When you love yourself, love others and your spouse all these emotional feelings will make your life feel complete. Not everyone understands that money is just important for survival in the modern world, the amount of money we have does not affect our happiness .Our life can be fulfilling if only we look at life beyond materialistic things. It is a common notion in the world that if you marry a rich person, you will live happily, this is not true. I believe that you can marry for love and not money and you will still be happy without money. We come across many people who believe that to impress his partner he needs money to impress his partner.
Spending a lot of money to impress a person is not true love. Human beings have emotional needs to be fulfilled, that is why emotional needs come naturally even the best money cannot replace a mother’s love or a father care. Money cannot buy friends, money can surely get you a date and the necessary company, but it cannot give you a soul mate. Compared to money love last forever, therefore, no one needs to rely on money to gain to be happy. We need to strive to find love and live a fulfilling life.
If we are in a relationship because of money, it defeats the idea of love because people invest in a relationship for another motive. If you find true love, your life will be complete. There are many people who believe that in the end, it’s only love that matter. People say that love is the best feeling and if you are lucky to experience, it is you will be the happiest person on earth. Therefore, money should never be compared to love because love is endless, hence money cannot buy it. Love truly makes a positive impact than money; love gives us joy and joy create healthy and positive relationships compared to money. Choosing the right life partner depends on what we want in life, if we want happiness we will choose someone who makes us truly happy but not someone who is rich.
