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

Money is not wrong, and in reality, a necessity in our society. However, loving money too much leads to all sorts of problems. We often want more than we have and then lose sleep over the fear of losing it. Regardless of how much you earn, if you try to create happiness through the accumulation of wealth, you will never have enough.

Whatever financial situation you are in, learn how to use what you have wisely and constructively. Ultimately, you leave it behind when it’s time to depart this earthly world.


Breaking Through Barriers

Our society offers many barriers that divide: race, religion, education, gender, and wealth, to name a few. These are personal obstructions that hinder our growth and block us from each other. Until you care enough to confront and resolve these underlying barriers, you become less effective in fulfilling your purpose.

The strength of what we believe is measured by how much we are willing to sacrifice for those beliefs. We can’t control what others say or do, but we can control our response to it. Some people thrive off of discrediting others. You are the only one that can define who you are despite what others say or seek to influence. When you come to this realization, your life takes on new meaning.

We must resist the tendency to think about the limitations our environment creates for us and find ways to counter it. When we believe in ourselves, there is little that we cannot accomplish.

Envisioning what we want, setting goals to bring that vision to fruition, and watching how it unfolds inspires us to keep moving forward in our quest.
