Words of wisdom to change your perspective
Do you say to yourself, “If I just had more money, my life would be so much better?”
Many people have a love-hate relationship when it comes to money. Some look at money as the be-all and end-all, constantly chasing and seeking more of it. Others see money as the enemy, spending more than they make and ignoring the debt that continues to pile up.
Regardless of where you fall on the spectrum, if you let money control your life you will never be happy.
The secret to creating a healthy relationship with money, like any good relationship, is creating the right mindset and attitude.
Here are some words of wisdom to change your perspective:
Money never made a man happy yet, nor will it. The more a man has, the more he wants. Instead of filling a vacuum, it makes one.
Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that.
–Norman Vincent Peale
Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.
If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.
Everyone wants to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.
It’s good to have money and the things that money can buy, but it’s good, too, to check up once in a while and make sure that you haven’t lost the things that money can’t buy.
Wealth is the ability to fully experience life.
–Henry David Thoreau
Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.
You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.
Money won’t create success. The freedom to make it will.
