What is the point of money? What is the point of having a job? These are some of the most common questions we ask, when we are disillusioned with the world. However, we all should seek to answer these questions because we are all tied down to money in one way or another. A lot of people are either earning too much or too little. Some people are losing themselves over making money and not really living life. Some people see how society is ruined by the greed of money and decide to avoid money all-together. Neither extremes are acceptable. I realize a lot of humans are so caught up in acquiring money that they forget the real reason why we should earn money.
The point of money is to have a variety of experiences. The point of money is to be able to spend your money to have these experiences. For the first time in history, we have access to information all over the world. We are able to do things that were deemed impossible many years ago. The invention of flight and cars have made long distance travel possible. The invention of the internet has given us the complete knowledge of mankind at our fingertips. The invention of Amazon has completely revolutionized the way we purchase things. Fast traveling bullet trains allow us to travel from one city to another in record speeds. All of these thing allow us to have new and boundless experiences that was long thought to be impossible. Each year, we are living in a more boundless society.
Yet non of these marvelous achievements could have been obtained without the incentive of money. Money doesn’t corrupt people, people corrupt themselves. Wealth and acquiring success is a human virtue. Working hard is a way that each human contributes to society. We take the air we breathe and the everyday pleasures of the world for granted. Working hard and building something is the way in which we give back to society. When we provide value to the public, we get money in return. I would go as far as to say, money is the direct value we bring to everyone around us. The more value we bring to the world, the more money we make.
Once we have money, we are able to truly enjoy life. We are finally able to go to the beach in Bali and watch the sunset. We are finally able to visit the Mayan ruins and take breath-taking pictures like the ones we see our coolest friends partake. The world can be boundless and we can learn to live each moment to its greatest potential.
A lot of my friends still see money as being bad. Money isn’t bad at all. Money is the medium of exchange in which we can trade for anything. With money, we can experience the most delicious food, we can enjoy the most immersive VR video game, and we can see the most beautiful places mother nature has to offer.
I hope after reading this blog that your perspective on money will change. Happy earning!! Just remember, don’t be a dick.
