Your dose of money savvy wisdom
Transformational Tuesday is here!
"A wise person should have money in their head, but not in their heart."
-- Jonathan Swift
This is a lovely quote from our friend Jon. Having worked on a trading floor for several years, it seems quite fitting!
P.s. you don't have to have worked in Finance to feel like you can resonate with this quote. After a certain monetary threshold, it's all about how you view money and whether it becomes a part of who you are. Meaning...
When more money is a ‘must’ and more money takes over our identity (who we are and our values), that’s when it becomes problematic. The pursuit of wealth can be endless and often we sacrifice our health along with those closest to us just for an inflated bank balance (and ego!)
Now I get it, money is like oxygen...we need it to survive! However, i'm not talking about affording the basic needs and wants, I'm talking about excess.
**Disclaimer** - It's okay to have a taste for some of the finer things in life - I know i do!
What I'm saying is, being wealthy isn't just about the money...
