Why money is not everything in life?
Why is everything about money? I will not push this further but rather I will make it simple for you to understand the current crises. We have all heard of this coronial virus in the system. How many rich peoples have you heard that they are dead? What of poor ones? This virus is so disrespectful, it does not fear any face. No matter how much money you have, either rich or poor when it gets you, it will take your life. My question to you is if money is everything, why is it that most rich peoples are also dying? Can’t their money save them? This reminds me of what a friend of mine said the other day “If this virus kills all those corrupt parliamentarians and those greedy rich peoples, I will be very happy”
So money is not everything in life. We can use this coronial virus as an example to testify it. Our lives and other things listed below are much more important than money.
Money is not everything but everything needs money
We have seen why money is not everything in life. But what you must know of is “everything needs money” That is all that our struggling in this world is about. We are doing all our best to have a lot of money so that we can provide for our daily needs. If you have less money, your chances of surviving are really less. And you know what is so hurtful about being poor? You lose respect. In today’s world, if you don’t get money and build a house or buys a car, no one respects you.

6 Reasons why money isn’t everything
1. Your Health is important than money
Will you trade your health for cash? Your health and state of being fit in life is important than any other thing. If you are not physically fit, how are you going to put in a lot of work? It is true when you have money and you fall sick, you may go to the hospital for treatment. But what if no doctor or drug could save you? Will that mean an end of your life? So your health is really much more important than money. Just look at it this way, always health comes first before money. This is because I don’t think you will rise from bed and go to work for cash, whiles you are not on good health.
When you have good health, you may then do all your possible best to work for money. This doesn’t mean you are trading your health for money, no.
2. You need peace of mind
During my college, I rented a house with one of my mates in the city which the school was. Because the school hostel cost much more than I could have afforded, we did that. Within the house, there were other two co-tenants, two girls. They were actually not students and also not married. I will say they were just town girls. During the night, they will invite their friends, watch movies and talk a lot. This continued for almost a month, we couldn’t have a stable mind to learn. Because their house was next to us, whatever they say we hear it. Sometimes when they sing or talk aloud in a middle of our sleep, we had no option than to wake up. This worried us a lot so we decided to rent in a different place where we could learn, and we did that.

But one thing I noticed was, whenever someone disturbs your peace of mind, you become worried and think a lot which could lead to a mental problem. This is because we were feeling uncomfortable and all the time, we were thinking and saying stupid things in our head. The same is true with money. When you have a lot of it but don’t get the peace of mind to sleep, it may lead to a serious health problem that can even take your life. Our body needs to relax after all day of working. So if you don’t give it the rest it needs, it might put you into trouble. So money is important in our lifes but remember, your peace of mind is much more important than money.

So if you have a lot of cash but look so disrespectful, then consider polishing your attitude.

4. Family is essential
When we talk about life, family is what comes to our mind first. Most peoples don’t know how wealthy their family is, they do unnecessary things to look disrespectful to the members in it. I remember when I was young; I hated my parent very much because they were poor. But now I have realized, they are the best gift God has ever given me. No matter how rich or wealthy you are, if you don’t live your life in way that your family members will have trust in you, you may live with no joy.
5. Skills are wealth having
Why do you think is the main reason, why students trade their time to waste almost 13 years in school. Is there any valuable thing they are after? Is it money? No, it a skill. They do all their best to go to school every day to be thought so that they can master a particular skill they are interested in. Because with a skill, they could land in a good position in a good job. That will pay them a lot of money.
