One reason we’re so focused on obtaining wealth is the need to feel secure. We believe that if we have a large amount of money in the bank, we’ll be protected from sickness, pain, difficulty and struggle. In a limited sense this is true.

 

An Excerpt From My Book “Driven” Overcoming Obstacles and Hardships To Becoming Successful Part 4
From The Chapter Drive To Succeed:
One reason we’re so focused on obtaining wealth is the need to feel secure. We believe that if we have a large amount of money in the bank, we’ll be protected from sickness, pain, difficulty and struggle. In a limited sense this is true . However, security is simply a state of mind. It’s not the money itself that makes us feel secure, it’s our belief that adequate financial reserves protect us from bad experiences. If you look logically at this concept, you will realize that having a lot of money really can’t protect you from anything, except perhaps surprise expenses. Still, a fat bank account doesn’t guarantee we’ll never experience anything negative. There will always be car accidents, terrorist attacks, illness, job loss, troublesome relationships and more. Having a lot of money won’t matter when you find yourself in those situations because they are completely out of your control. I once had a great job that allowed me to make a ton of money. My drive to get more just increased every single day. It had started to become a game to me to see how much more I could make on a daily basis. The obsession with money took over my life. So much so that I ended up losing everything that I had worked so hard for. It also ended up costing me a marriage, a house and cars. Before long all of the money was gone through a divorce, child support and a failed business. I was wiped out. All of the success I thought I would always have was suddenly gone because of my definition for success. It was just greed that I was really chasing. Now that it was all gone I felt like I had no security in my life. The only true security we have is what we can create in our own minds. There is true security in believing in ourselves, in having confidence to overcome challenges, in our spiritual beliefs and in doing our small part to make this world a better place.
