Money is as important to us as the air that we breathe and the food that we eat. You cannot get far without it, certainly not these days. Having plenty of money gives you the freedom to enjoy nice things and to go to interesting places. So becoming rich is a reasonable aspiration. However there is a fine line between building your fortune and becoming obsessed with money. An obsession with money will not make you happy but it will probably alienate you from the other people, particularly family and loved ones. Only people matter, so if you lose them you’ve lost everything, regardless of how much money you’ve got. Think of the good times you’ve had over the years and at the heart of those experiences will always be other people I am sure. Make money by all means, and manage it carefully too, but don’t let any of it become an obsession. As with everything in life some balance must be maintained.
