Life is all about money. Well, it seems so.
Think about all the things you work toward. Chances are it stems from your level of income.
You strive for that job promotion, you take two years to get a masters degree, and you strategize the best way to get a raise.
You move for work, or you stick around for work. Either way, it’s most likely because of your paycheck.
But not so fast. Why is it that we’re so focused on our earnings? It’s important, sure, I won’t deny it, but it also seems like we’re tricking ourselves.
Humans invented money. It’s not like it started as a necessity like air or water. However, we’ve built a society where it’s become necessary. And since we constructed it, it’s therefore up to us as to how much we want to give it value.
