Money: What's It Good For?
Here’s the simple truth about money: it can really only help you do three things in your life:
1. Avoid pain - by protecting you and helping you to take care of what you’re afraid might cause pain in the future
2. Feel good - by getting you the things that provide you with happiness and satisfaction
3. Take care of the ones you love - by meeting your obligations to family, community, and society at large
Which one of these things is most important to you? And how do you unravel what money means to you in order to improve your financial life?
First, you need a desire to create lasting change in your life. Second, you need a personal finance guide. The fact that you’re reading these words points to your motivation to bring about better outcomes As far as guidance is concerned, the book The Money Code might be able to help. The goal of this book is to provide the lasting financial solutions you’ve been looking for.
With so much competing for your attention every day, determining where to direct your resources is a daunting task. No doubt, there are limitless ways to spend your time and energy. Unfortunately, you have a limited amount of both. In this regard, time is fair: Whether you’re the president of the United States or a newborn infant, your daily dose of 24 hours is the same. Therefore, to reach your goals, you must determine where you’ll direct your focus right now and what you’ll postpone until later.
I’ll first describe what is competing for your time and resources when it comes to your financial life. From there, you can determine how to separate essential tasks from nonessential ones. Each of us lives in two financial worlds: external and internal. Our external world includes taxes, inflation, the country’s economy, the stock market, and more. All of these will affect us, but we cannot control them. Meanwhile, our internal world consists of our job, salary, spouse, and family—in other words, things we can directly impact.
