Why Earning money should not be your real purpose?

Chasing money, make you become slave to money


The borrower is slave to the lender.

– Proverbs 22:7

This is the part 3 of my 5-part series about finding purpose in life.


When you make money your purpose in life, you become a slave to money

The reason why earning money, should never be your real purpose in life is because you will never make enough of money. You will keep looking for more, and the more you earn, the more expenses.


You will find yourself  in the rat race, if you make earning money your purpose in life. Whereby, all you do is wake up, and rush to work from 9-5 daily, until you retire. This means that you work for money all you life.


OK, I get it so what should be my purpose in life then?

Your purpose in life should be something of value, which is based on your passion. Something you love doing freely and always happy to do all the time is your passion, which you should be chasing because, your passion is the purpose why you are here on earth, and you are meant to make your passion something of benefit to human being.


“Focusing your life solely on making money shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. And it will leave you unfulfilled.” –Barack Obama


Bottom line

Don’t make earning more your purpose in life, let your purpose be something that will add valve to human race because that is the only way you will live on, long after you had gone.
