5 Things That Are More Important Than Money
Have you ever wondered what kind of world we have if money does not exist? If everything is free? No one is in debt, but then again how exactly do you think we would survive? It’s not a human being’s basic necessity like food or shelter or clothing, but then in is the world we live in, in order to survive, you need to have money. Does that make money the most important thing in the world Does it really make people happy? If you think so, then here are some of the things that are far more important than money.
“You are not wealthy until you have something that money can’t buy.” – Unknown
One of the things that cannot be bought with money is Knowledge. It cannot be bought and at the same time cannot be stolen from you. Yes, you might need money to go to school, but then it’s not just about learning languages, maths, and science. It is also about learning how to live your life. Making wise decisions in life is one of the greatest examples of money not being able to take over your life.
You can share your knowledge with others, but they can never buy it with money or even steal it from you. That is why you should never stop learning about new things that come into your life. There is no limit when it comes to that.
Another thing and probably the most important thing surely money can’t buy is experience. Your life, your existence, cannot be bought with any amount of money. Did you get your heart broken for the first time in your life? It is an experience. Your first kiss, the feeling you got when you accepted by your dream college when you got your first ever paycheck, the feeling you got when you find out you and your partner are expecting. Every single one of them is your experiences in life and no amount of money can change that. Money may be a part of it, but it is nothing major compared to these experiences you had in your life. Every joy, fear, loneliness and excitement are all part of your experiences in life and they are all free. You don’t need money to be able to feel what it is like to be human.
Friendship and Family
Real friends are definitely very hard to find especially these days. So consider yourself lucky if you found a friend who is actually there for you and will always be there for you through thick and thin. That kind of loyalty to a friend cannot be measured with money. There are a lot of people who are incredibly rich and yet very poor when it comes to real friends. There are a lot of people who are sleeping on top of money, but they don’t have a family to go home to or spend time with.
When you have a lot of money, people may take advantage of you and may only want you for your money so if you are rich with money and friends, then good for you, but if you are not rich with money but is rich when it comes to real friends then considered yourself lucky. Having a companion in life who you can trust is worth more than a million.
Achievements in Life
When you finally reached your goals, there is no greater joy. You just gained something to be proud of and that truly is more important than money. Working hard for something that you want, something you’re fighting for, something you have been longing for, or even for something that is not for yourself is an achievement and you should be proud of what you have done. No amount of money can get that from you, because you will carry it until you die, and when until that time comes, you will live your life with pride because you actually have something you have worked hard for. No matter how big or small it may be, it is still an accomplishment no one can take away from you.
Last but definitely not the least is the time. Time is actually considered to be the most important things in the world therefore, it is more important than money. When you give time to other people or things, you are giving something that you can never take back. In life, there is no rewind, pause or fast forward, there is only play, which is the present obviously. They may say that people can buy time and unfortunately in some cases, that is true. As a normal adult, you work 8 hours a day and 7 days a week. You are not just getting paid because you are doing your job, but also because you are spending 8 hours of your life there every single day.
If you don’t have a job, you have all the free time that you need, but you don’t have any money to spend. It is as simple as that nowadays, so technically, without time, money is nothing but a piece of paper. You cannot buy or sell something without actually using time. Everything that is happening in this world revolves around time, so that makes it more important than money or anything else in this world.
