A good life consists not only in money, but also in good relationships and good health.

In fact, relationships are probably going to have the biggest impact in your life. And after relationships, your health is going to be what your money and your relationships will heavily depend on. Money will no doubt be useful throughout your life, but it won’t be worth sacrificing your relationships or health over it.

Ask yourself, what’s my end goal with all the money? What can’t I do now that money will allow me to do? Chances are that you can probably already do most of the things that you’re hoping money will allow you to do.

The main problem seems to be that society trains us to never cease to want more; to consume incessantly. And when you consume incessantly, no amount of money will ever be enough. You will continue sacrificing your life-time, your relationships, your health, all for wants that you’ll never actually fulfill, as the carrot on the stick will continue to get further and further away from your reach.

It all comes down to what you make with what you have. Once your basic needs are met and you stop pursuing consumerism, money can provide you with plenty of time and resources to improve yourself and reach after your dreams.

Find out what’s most important to you and the role that money plays in it.

In a consumer society there are inevitably two kinds of slaves: the prisoners of addiction and the prisoners of envy. ― Ivan Illich
