Well, money is also needed to survive.
Being wealthy is important. We need the peace of mind. We need to provide for our family. We need to have enough so we can share. For us to give, we need extra. For us to have extra, we must provide more than our needs. Having more than our needs is having wealth. Having wealth allows us to live the life we deserve, a victorious life that each one of us should be enjoying.
How we acquire our wealth and what we do with it will speak about our character—it will define who we really are.
The wealthy people who seemed to be genuinely happy are those who are not consumed in their quest to accumulate their wealth. The wealthy people who seem unhappy despite their wealth are those that are consumed by money—finding happiness in what their wealth can afford them.
