I didn’t see anybody buying the time which he/she has already left behind. Money can buy virtually anything. But, can it buy you the time which you’ve already spent and want to get back just to make a few things right?
If it could, we all probably would have nothing to regret and everything we wanted. So, put simply, money is not the answer for everything we want from life.
Love for Money, Or Love for You?
This reminds me the quote of great Oprah – “Everyone wants to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.”
I second her thought and admire her great gesture. Do you want people to be by your side because you’ve money? Money can buy admirers, not affection. Can we buy the love of our parents? Their love for us is immeasurable, unconditional and incomparable.
Emotions developed centuries back when there was no money, competition for enormity, or life advancements. Why do you think a mother used to give birth, care and protect her child at that time? Money has no value to animals, still you’ll see a female chimpanzee to give birth and protect her baby from the odds into the wilds. Nature didn’t create money, it’s the man who chose it as a way to trade.
Money Can Bring You the Luck, But Not the Sustainability
To be able to hold on to your success, you need to have a talent. You can buy success with money, but not for the long term. You can buy a degree, but you’ll have no value or respect for it.
You can have a career with the help of money, but, will you be suitable for it if you don’t have the skills required for it? Are you really after excellence? Or you’re just doing it for the sake of it? Even if you manage to develop the much needed skill or expertise for a job, will you be able to stick to your duties without having no love for it? For example, you manage to get the education and the degree of an engineer, but, you wanted to be a singer. So your heart and mind will be in the profession, while you’ll be struggling to be a good doctor. So, money can’t always buy you satisfaction.
So, the persistence of success doesn’t come only with the power of money, it comes with hard work, determination and worship. You need to devote yourself to your passion, fight for it all the time and believe in yourself; then only you can manage to be a real achiever of all time.
At the end, I believe you can have a luxury of life with money, but not the people who love you unconditionally. Faith in God doesn’t come with money. Money can’t buy your love for the family and close ones. So yes, I strongly believe there are certain things for which money can’t be an answer.
