You don’t want money. You want the things money can bring. Most likely you want happiness or joy. You want money so that you can do more of the things that bring you happiness or joy.
What would the world look like if we concentrated on what brought us joy instead of what brought us money?
And you don’t really need money to do what brings you joy. If I wanted to go spend a month or a year sailing around the Caribbean , I could make that happen. (Um, once I convinced Frank that is.) If I wanted to be a professional student, I could do that too. (Wait, I already am a lifelong student.)
Pursue what brings you joy, not what brings you money. So if you don’t want money, what do you really want?
Thanks to Steve Pavlina’s podcast for expressing this idea this way.
