Is Having Money Worth It?
What a lure there is in the word, “money” but how sadly its value and use are misunderstood.
True joy and contentment never come through the gain or possession of money, despite what many think. Outside of the need for money for daily living expenses like food and shelter and some comforts of life, money can become a source of worry, fear, and discontentment.
The value of that cash is governed solely by its use. Can you honestly believe that others who have money in much more considerable sums than you are genuinely joyful and more fulfilled than you are? Has wealth meant an end to their suffering, worry, and trouble?
The truth may surprise you. Money does not make you unhappy. Having a large amount can mean a higher quality of life.
In studies of various groups, people who earn high incomes tend to be healthier, happier, and less stressed. They also have better family relationships, lower drug use levels, and are less likely to smoke. High-earning groups also tend to have higher marriage rates and socialize less frequently than those who earn lower incomes.
Just give me the simple joys of life.
I care not for wealth or a grand estate.
Give me instead a place called home,
A lasting friend and a loving mate,
A couple of tots to muss my hair,
A puppy that barks with glee,
A pipe and an open fire-place,
These are good enough for me.
I envy not the millionaire,
Nor the man of noble birth,
For a look at the treasures I possess—
I’m the richest man on earth.
Currency does give you a certain amount of happiness. Still, too much of it tends to lead to excessive stress, anxiety, depression, and unsatisfying life. Instead of focusing primarily on the money you earn, focus instead on the things in life you would rather do.
This means giving back to society through good jobs, healthy physical activities and entertainment opportunities, volunteer work, and helping others better themselves.
Money must be recognized and considered as a symbol. We must realize that storing or hiding it solely for selfish means defeats whatever good is in it.

“Money is not good or evil. It has no morals or intentions on its own. Money reflects the character of the user.” Dave Ramsey
“Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.” Jim Rohn
“I made my money the old-fashioned way. I was very nice to a wealthy relative right before he died.” Malcolm Forbes
“The real measure of your wealth is how much you’d be worth if you lost all your money.” Anonymous
“Money never made a man happy yet, nor will it. There is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more a man has, the more he wants. Instead of filling a vacuum, it makes one.” Benjamin Franklin
“A great many people are accumulating what they think is vast wealth, but it’s only money.” Alan Watts
Your Financial Worth
It’s important to remember that your financial situation has little to do with your wealth.
If you were born rich or poor, if you have bad health or are chronically sick, these things have little to do with attracting abundance into your life.
When it comes to money, simply focusing on what you want will help you a lot. The law of attraction responds to what you focus on. You must concentrate on getting wealthy or changing your financial situation to attract money.
Remember, the universe knows your goals and desires better than anyone, which will help you reach them.
However, sometimes you need to put in hard work. If you feel worthy of anything in life, believe that you’re worth something, and deserve everything you want, then you’ll attract it into your life. Just be sure you don’t mistake belief for reality in this aspect of your life, as this can lead you down a path of disappointment and discouragement.
Attract Wealth Using The Law of Attraction
Visualize your goals in your mind daily and follow the functions below:
– Create a positive mindset: A money mindset is when you see yourself already having all you desire. By believing this, you will attract what you want.
You start with setting your mind to the thought of wealth, abundance, and prosperity. This is what you should be focusing on.
– Write down your goals: This is crucial to manifesting your dreams. Visualize your goals in your mind. Think big, believe humongous, and you’ll draw it. Focus on your desire to have your perfect life, and make sure you go all-out by working toward achieving it. Your mindset is critical, and so is the law of attraction if you want it to work for you in creating your life and reality.
– Reciting affirmations: Affirmations are a powerful tool that you can use to attract money. To repeat an affirmation, say it over again until you get the feeling and message of it deeply imprinted in your subconscious. Once you have one, focus on it intently to the point where it begins to affect you in every aspect of your life. Repeat as often as you can for this to work effectively.
Writing things down and reviewing them at least twice daily is an excellent way to keep you focused on your dreams. By writing about your desires, you’re also strengthening your visualization and attraction to your goals. Reviewing what you’ve written when it comes time to manifest your dreams will also help with visualization. This will help you remember what you want and why you want it.
– Using the universe to help you: The universe has its plan for every single person. Why not take that plan and follow it to the letter? If you want more money, then it’s time for you to think about using the universe to help you get it. The universe knows all our needs and wants and will help us in any way possible. This works for every situation and every person, so if the universe is working on manifesting your dreams, then it will be.
How Money Changes the Way You Think And Feel
Psychologists studying the impact of wealth and inequality on human behavior have found that money can powerfully influence our thoughts and actions in ways that we’re often unaware of, no matter our economic circumstances.
Although wealth is certainly subjective, most current research measures wealth on scales of income, job status, or socioeconomic circumstances, like educational attainment and intergenerational wealth.
These days, the idea of process addictions is widely accepted.
Process addictions involve a compulsive and out-of-control relationship with specific behaviors such as gambling, sex, eating, and, yes, even money.… There is a change in brain chemistry with a process of addiction similar to the mood-altering effects of alcohol or drugs.
With process addictions, engaging in a particular activity—say, viewing pornography, compulsive eating, or an obsessive relationship with money—can kickstart the release of brain/body chemicals, like dopamine, that produces a “high” that’s similar to the chemical high of a drug.
The person addicted to some form of behavior has learned, albeit unconsciously, to manipulate his brain chemistry.
