"Wealth is thoughts, not things." -Robert G. Allen
"Money is not important."
It's one of the biggest myths known to man. And it is one of the core reasons why the majority of the people are not wealthy... why the majority of people not attaining financial freedom.
Tell this myth to the family who's starving right now or to the family who needs money for some serious medical help for a member of their family. They will tell you how important money is. We have conditioned from day one to believe that money is not important. Wanting money is wrong and un-ethical. And yet, the entire world is running after money.
Money is purely a way to appraise the amount of value you create for others. If you have a lot of money, it means you have created a lot of value for other people. If you don't have the amount of money you would like to have, that simply means that you just haven't yet found a way to generate the amount of value for others that you are capable of, or the value that you would like to.
Lack of money also leads to many social problems. If we look at the countries, cities and particular places that are very poor, we'll find usually more crime, more people taking advantage of weak, more diseases, more suffering, more deaths and no education at all.
Of course, money is not the only important thing in life, but without it you just can't survive. That is the basic fact.
Money is pretty darned important especially in this pure materialistic age. To support your self and your family, to buy food, water, shelter, clothing, to pay medical bills, to socialize... you need money. With money only you could be able to support and help people around you, even your loved ones. All we know that these are all most important things.
Also, if you feel that it's more important to contribute to others or to serve a social cause than to be rich, well guess what, again you need to earn money, grow rich and attain financial freedom. If you earn more money you can contribute more, serve more.
Then how come this myth created... money is not important? Simply ridiculous. Don't you think so?
