Is Money The Root Of All Evil? The answer to this question might shock you but it could change your financial life forever!
I am sure you heard statements like “money the root of all evil” or “people who have a lot of money are bad“. Unfortunately, a lot of people think about the money this way, yet they are wondering why they lifestyle is not so great. I want to share some of my thoughts about money being the root of all evil. If you think this way, my thoughts might change the way you look at the wealth and any other financial aspect.
I am not sure if you noticed, but most of the people who say this kind of statement is the people who don’t have much money. This kind of statements or opinions come mostly from the jealousy. I used to think “I tried but I couldn’t succeed. Those RICH PEOPLE are doing something illegally or they destroy other life in order to get wealthy“. It was 100% my jealousy speaking. I know there might be many other reasons why people say “Money The Root Of All Evil”, but based on my own experience I believe that the jealousy is the #1 reason.
It’s not a true and I am sure about it. This is not only my opinion but most of the successful people I know have the same opinion. Money is not a “thing”. It’s not alive and it can’t think by itself. Money is basically a result of the activities that create money. So money can not be the root of evil. People say that people who become wealthy become also evil. But when we look closer, how many poor and broke people are out there who are also evil? If the money was the root of all evil than all poor people should not be evil, right?
I don’t watch too many news because it puts a lot of negative feelings in me, but when I do I can see news about poor and normal people who kill, still and do other different things. Of course, there is news about wealthy people who do bad things as well, but when we compare these 2 categories, most of the “evil” news are about people who are not wealthy.
People might say “That’s why! They are hungry for MONEY! That’s why they are doing bad things“. But not in every case, the reason is the money. There are a lot of bad things going on worldwide and the only small percentage is about the money.
Except for the jealousy, there is one more reason why people think that many create evil. Some people experienced the situation where their friend changed after he or she became wealthy. The friend pushed them away, stopped contacting them, started laugh at their poor lifestyle etc. When people experience this kind of things it’s pretty normal to think that the money changes people. But the truth is a bit different.
Money does not change people. It simply doubles or triples who they really are. If a Joe is a jerk but he is poor than he can’t do many awful things without the money. When a Joe becomes wealthy and he has unlimited opportunities to do awful things he does it on the big scale. Then people easily notice his dark side. But for example, if a Joe is a kind, loving and supporting person probably when he becomes wealthy he will do even bigger kind things and he will support people even more.
To make is easier to understand. The money makes you more who you really are. Without the money, you just don’t have a possibility to show who you really are! So why money is evil? It’s not. If you are an evil person as being broke, then probably you will be an evil person as being wealthy as well.
There are people who want to know how to become wealthy but at the same time, they believe in this crazy statement of money being the root of evil. If you see money, wealth or a good lifestyle as evil and you want to be a good person, then you will not have a lot of money! It’s so simple. If you think that having a car is bad for nature, would you buy one and drive it? Of course not. If you think that money is bad, would you have it? Of course not.
There is a big misunderstanding going on here. People want to have a lot of money but they reject it because it’s evil. It doesn’t make any sense. If you want to be a criminal or an evil person, yeah sure make then you can have a lot of money. But as long as you want to be a good person and you want to have a lot of money at the same time, you can not think that money is evil.
I hope you are not a person who believes in this statement, but in case you are I want you to think about what I wrote in this post. Money, the real thing is not evil. It just shows the true face of a person who has the money.
