Money is important and we should agree on that basic assumption. Whatever we feel about money, people with money, or the pursuit of money, we can at least agree on that. No matter how you try, you just can’t ever dismiss that fact.
Because we are human and we simply want things that we see and like, it’s just our human nature to want more. The main way we get more is through the power of money. The more you have, the more you want, or that’s how it seems to go.
No money means you are really hurting. Having no money means that you are destitute. It means that you are totally dependent on others or living paycheck to paycheck and having to put up with abuse at work because you so badly need to keep your job.
Maybe it's a necessity to know how to differentiate between the role that money can have in our lives, and at the same time not become too obsessed with it to the point of stealing our breath, but money is a tool that enables you to protect yourself, build yourself and your family a better life, and to give back to your community, and that’s the reason why it’s important.
Of course, other elements are always needed, but there is no denying that the money would be there, right next to the oxygen. So it's always a good time to learn how to start a solid lifetime investing plan.
