“Money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish, but it will not replace you as the driver.” – Ayn Rand
Money matters to everyone, because of the importance of its use. Almost everything in life depends on money, so we will always be interested in knowing how to multiply it. It works as a tool for obtaining what we want and what we need, and as the quote says, it could take you wherever you wish. But remember you're still the protagonist of your own movie. Your decisions also lead you to the outcome of what will be your lifestyle.
Everyone wants a life of comfort but, not just anybody can reach to that point, it depends a lot on the things you do, or the steps you take to reach those kind of goals. Money is important, yes, but is more important you focus yourself on what you want and where you want to be, so you can do whatever it takes to get there.
