Wealth gives the facade of power and control, but often does not deliver. It can be lost instantly through uncontrollable factors and those who seek it obsessively never find the happiness they think it promises.

We often want more than we have and then lose sleep over the fear of losing it. Ultimately, you leave it behind when it’s time to depart this earthly world. Regardless of how much you earn, if you try to create happiness through the accumulation of wealth, you will never have enough.

Money is not wrong and in reality, a necessity in our society. However, loving money too much leads to all sorts of problems including the attraction of freeloaders and thieves. Whatever financial situation you are in, don’t depend on money to make you happy. Instead, learn how to use what you have wisely and constructively.
