Recently I started having thoughts on money in general. I look around, there’s always a need for more money. Money to buy this, money to buy that. I then question myself as I look ahead of my life, “What is it that you are truly chasing after?” To be honest, I don’t really know. I’m 21 and my whole life is ahead of me yet I haven’t figured out why I’ll be working all my life for money. I’ve been reading books on success, books that revolve around the topic of money, but I still don’t know why I want money.
I ask myself a lot of questions.. “Why do I want money?”, “Why do I want to be prosperous?”, “What do I want to do with money?”. Ultimately, I question myself if I’m setting my eyes on the wrong prize, or in fact, any prize at all? I don’t know about you, but I think this is a question worth pondering.
If it’s happiness I’m after, I don’t have to be rich to be happy, because I’m already happy.
If it’s satisfaction I’m after, having more money doesn’t seem to satisfy me because it’s not doing much for me.
If it’s achievement I’m after, there are so many other achievements I can achieve without having more money.
If it’s comfort I’m after, wouldn’t being contented suffice?
What are we chasing after? What are YOU chasing after?
