Money Gives You Choices
December 03, 2014
Life is more than just about money. Money is simply a vehicle. It is your choice. Every morning when you wake up, I believe you have the choice to be in a good mood or a bad mood. When it comes to your money, you also have a choice. You have a choice to be a spender or a saver. Do you want to save and save to buy the things you want or do you choose to buy things today and end up paying more for them by using credit cards? It is your choice.
Money is simply a vehicle. It is a piece of paper or a plastic card or a number that shows up on your computer or your monthly statement. So many times people think when they make more money or have more money that they will be happy. Money doesn't buy happiness.
Years ago, Oprah was hosting her show and made the comment that we as Americans were living unconsciously with our money. The word "unconscious" completely resonated with me and it has been my mission ever since to help you live consciously with your money. Look at your money as a vehicle and it is simply there to get you where you want to go. You have control over your vehicle and you can choose how fast that vehicle goes and what it looks like.
