Money doesn’t make us happy. But do we need money to live? So we have to do ? Try to make a lot of money or be satisfied with what you have?
There is a scientific study that shows that we won’t be any happier if we make more than $ 75k or some damn figure.
It sounds good, but maybe many people won’t care and consider it nonsense.
That research won’t help, it won’t change the way I run after money, and it won’t see anyone change.
The researcher intent was to point out that money won’t make us happy.
Keyword results “Money doesn’t buy happiness”(Money can’t buy happiness) on Google is 69,200,000.
We cannot convince others that money does not make you happy because scientific research says so. Perhaps we only understand and absorb this through personal experience.
I had a hard time realizing that
When I was in my 20s, I didn’t know the thought of “having to make a lot of money, to be a millionaire to be a successful person” appeared in my mind. I could not find out where the thought came from. Perhaps the general thinking of society today has injected that poison into my head.
But that is the motivation for me to do my best to make money. I was born into a difficult family, and my parents worked a lot to raise my brothers and sisters. They owe a lot.
I always want to shoulder a certain part for the family. It is true that difficult life always gives people a strong will. Family background is the driving force to help me make efforts to study at school. I’m not a smart kid, I just study hard. That’s why I got a ticket to a good university. Thanks to my parents’ help, I was the first in my family to achieve a master’s degree.
But when I leave the lecture chair, money is always my ultimate goal. I even lost the chance to work for a very successful business because I demanded the salary too high. But that doesn’t stop me from making more money.
I started my own business, the company’s revenue reached $ 1 million after only 2 years of operation. I pay myself 40k dollars a year, living a life to my liking. Looking around, what I achieved for a 25 year old was a great thing, but to me it was not enough.
I take every opportunity to make as much money as possible and force myself to blindly chase after money. After 4 years like that, I have a lot of money but I feel empty again, I’m not happy.
Having more money only leads to a bigger problem
I’ve always thought that having more money is the answer to everything “If I have a lot of money, problems will disappear” I used to believe in it a lot and considered it my ideal of life.
But it was nothing like what I expected. One of my mentors, someone I think leads a rich and happy life, told me:
“The more money you make, the more problems will come behind it“
Money comes at a price. The more you invest, the more you will lose. It’s like building a company, the more the company grows, the bigger the responsibility you’ll have on your shoulders.
Life is not easy. No matter how much money you make. To some extent having more money only complicates and stresses our lives.
You need less money than you ever thought possible
Back to a time when I was blindly chasing after money. I wake up at 6 a.m. and work until I go to bed. I always fall into a negative emotional situation. I don’t have time to spend with my friends. And really, I don’t have any time to enjoy it. When I look back, my health has declined markedly, at that time I only had money, truly I had nothing but money.
And that’s not my case, I know a lot of people are chasing money like that.
You wouldn’t believe a scientist told you “money doesn’t make you happy,” but you know when a rich man tells you that, you still won’t believe it. You will say, “Because you make money easily, so you say that”.
That’s why I’m here, an ordinary person, to share it with you. Don’t chase after money. If you think a lot of money makes you financially free but think again, financial freedom does not need much money, when you have a lot of money you will achieve financial freedom but you will have to trade for other freedoms. One of these is that your feelings will be imprisoned.
You need much less money than you think.
Instead of being very far away with my family, now I return to them and help them more. Not only for financial help but also mentally, just be there with them.
And now, I’m doing the things that I really love. I make a living as a Blogger and online teacher. And you know, I don’t even need a lot of money to live a good life.
I came to that point when I read a book about personal finance. This book describes how much money we spend on things related to work. For example, if you live in an expensive city where your job is located, your living expenses will be very high.
Plus, how much money we spend on work-related clothes and furnishings. Shoes, somi shirts, trousers, cavities, … Things like that, you would normally never buy.
To be financially free, I think we have to be mentally free first
Yes, money can be freely bought, but we don’t need to pay too much for it. Remember: The more money, the more the problem. It’s not that I don’t encourage people to make money, I want people to make money by being happiest, comfortable with themselves.
That is why we need to train emotional and mental strength, it is emotional and mental strength that will help us get rid of slavery with external physical things. is to serve man, don’t let it make me a slave.
I am not afraid of what will happen in the future because 2 things:
- I have physical and mental health thanks to a year of training body and mind.
- I don’t have any debt, have savings and work for myself.
If you choose money to follow, any decisions you make will impact your life a lot.
Do you take a job that makes a lot of money but will damage your reputation? You are not free
Do you borrow to buy a car? You are not free
I used to be immersed in debt. Used to be a prisoner of the “corporate world”. I got out and I’m not the only one to do it.
In my opinion, the ultimate thing in a person’s life is towards freedom! Freedom of body and mind.
Freedom is not an accident, it does not come by itself. We need a lot of effort, thought, and plan to get there, always ready to start over.
Through this share, I have a lot of things to think about as a Trader. This sharing has helped me change my mind. Most Traders like us are freelancers, we own this monetization, don’t have to work for anyone but really if the Trader’s mindset is wrong, that freedom will disappear. into imprisonment. Especially new Traders, if we always focus on how to make a lot of money when entering the market, we will become the slaves of the market. Our emotions and behavior will be controlled by the market.
Anyone who comes to financial markets wants to make money and gain financial freedom, but go on a scientific path. Train your emotional and mental strength first, forging strong resistance to market fluctuations. Once that is achieved, the road to financial freedom will be much more open!
Have a good night everyone! Hope this sharing will help someone!
