Money and happiness

Money is good. Money is not the root of all evil. As long as you think like that you will never have any. Greed is the root of all evil. Money is just a convenient form of storing energy, products, valuable ideas, work done, services rendered. It is more convenient than carrying livestock or produce around to barter with. (‘Do you have change for a sheep?’) We all need some money on a daily basis to live comfortably and to store away for a time when we can no longer work. And there is plenty of it in the world. So with that in mind here are some interesting quotes:

If you would know the value of money, go and borrow some. Benjamin Franklin

Wealth is the product of man’s capacity to think. Ayn Rand

Money can’t buy you love, but it can put you in a good bargaining position

Money can’t buy you happiness but you can be miserable in comfort

Money is better than poverty if only for financial reasons. Woody Allen

There are few ills in this world where a good income is of no avail

If women didn’t exist, all the money in the world would have no meaning. Aristotle Onassis

If you are struggling with debt, I highly recommend Jon Hanson’s book ‘Good debt, bad debt’. In it he opens your eyes to the ‘consumerati’ life-style many of us are living, shows you the pitfalls, and helps you to work toward the light at the end of the tunnel. This book can change your financial life.
For a more spiritual approach to money, I recommend ‘The Feng Shui of Abundance’ by Suzan Hilton.
Also, be sure to read ‘The Power of your Subconscious Mind’ by Dr. Joseph Murphy for improving all aspects of your life. Here is an affirmation for attracting money from his book :

‘I like money. I use it wisely, constructively and judiciously. I release it with joy, and it returns to me a thousandfold’.
