Hitting Big and Losing All

Earning money is good. But keep in mind that it's never the end goal. Don't be too desperate and compromise morals just to have more. You might succeed in hitting a big one today then have your life gone the next day. Or you might live long enough to regret doing a grave thing in the past for the sake of money that will ruin the rest of your future.

Being a good steward of things here on earth is a responsibility given to us by God. We are expected to make good use of our skills, strength and talents to take good care of our family, surroundings and our own selves which includes financial matters.

Earning and building wealth to put into good use is always a great thing. But never forget that all material things are temporary. We might be capable to buy all the things we want but we can never afford to lose sight of the more important things in life which are everything beyond material things and money.

Aim for the Value

If you want to earn for a living, your goal must not be how to make money. Your focus must be on offering something of value to others. It may be your skill, talent or some product that improves other people's lives. People pay for things that makes their lives better and easier. Look at yourself, then on the others. What problems do you have now and what could be your solution? Think of what you could do or create to make lives trouble-free. Then build it. Make people know about it and you can start from that.

Laziness Does Not Bring Contentment

You call it prudence, others will see it as playing safe. Your passion for planning of your future is perceived by some as dissatisfaction and ungratefulness of your current situation. Laziness and hopelessness are sometimes interpreted by others as contentment. Or maybe to use it as an excuse to do something.

Contentment is not when you keep on complaining about your situation while criticizing those who are striving to improve their lives.

Investing for your future must not be mistaken as a sign of discontentment and ungratefulness of your current situation. It actually means you are grateful and contented with your life that you want your loved ones to feel the same or better even when you are gone.
