It's important to understand that it is not money that we value, it is what we can do with money. . If everything in life was free, money would mean absolutely nothing. But because everything costs money, we are always saying that we can't afford something because we have so many other things we have to spend our money on. So we put our desires on hold until we get more money.
When we get more money, we either choose to grow our money or buy our desires. If we choose to buy our desires, we justify our decision by saying we deserve them and after working so hard, it's definitely true. But after that money is gone we just continue working hard for money so we can choose again. This is why we give into our urges so easily. If we didn't have to work so hard to get the things we want, we would be wiser with our money.
Everyone should invest their money in things that will help them grow their money. You can still choose to buy your desires but budget yourself to invest as well. The idea is to be wealthy and not necessarily rich. You should ultimately choose to achieve financial freedom.
I'm slowly learning to live my life this way because it's important to me that I don't live a life of work and having to choose between growing money and buying my desires. I want to enjoy as much of life as I can while I'm here. and I hope you choose to do the same.
