Money Seems to be Everything!

Since I started doing financial planning for clients 45 years ago, I have had a marvelous run of events.  I have seen stock markets melt down, and run up.  I have seen hundreds of savings and loan companies go out of business.  I have seen several Bernie Madoff scandals, and I have seen newly formed companies that started in a home garage and explode into dynamic financial giants like Microsoft, Apple, Google, and Facebook.  What I have mentioned here doesn’t even scratch the surface of what I have seen and learned about money over the years. Money intertwines in all our lives to such an extent that most of the time it controls us.  Money seems to drive the world we live in.  It defines who we are by where we live, what level of education we obtain, the kind of clothes we wear and how much we can travel the world .
Therefore, I say money is everything.  And yet is it really?
Money should not cause us to dump personal relationships, or become arrogant and aloof.  If money issues cause us to lose sight of our true values then it can become a curse.
How can we balance our lives so that money becomes a wonderful tool, rather than a heavy metal albatross around our neck?  I submit to you that you need to see clearly what you want out of life, then allocate your money resources to go in that direction.  To help you see your values more clearly, review these quotes about money and see how you feel about each one of them.  Choose one or two of these quotes that inspire you and implement them.  You will be glad you did:
