I recently posed a question on my Instagram account, @patienceandhustle, asking people to fill in this phrase. “Money is_____” blank
Complete that phrase… “Money is____”. The responses I got were great! Money is a tool, money is energy, money is a necessity, money is an accelerant, money is a way to create opportunities, money is freedom.
We were taught that Money is the root of all evil. That’s just not true. In fact, that bible verse is quite misquoted. It actually says “For the LOVE of money, is A root of all kinds of evils”, it’s an attitude problem, not a money problem. Getting rich simply for the consumption, the crave, the desire for it, the LOVE of it. That’s the problem.
Money is a tool, it is a way to get new opportunities, it does help you accelerate your business or even your charity to others. It can create freedom. Finances are one of the leading causes of stress. Not being able to properly take care of your family in the good, and the bad times, will cause undue stress. Imagine a loved, maybe a parent, becoming terminally ill, possibly with cancer, and they don’t have good health insurance, or even life insurance. Who is going to pick up the tab? You. Can you? Can you afford to? Can you afford not to?
Your attitude and desire behind money makes all the difference. So ask yourself today, what is money to you?
