Money, money, money

Must be funny

In the rich man’s world

Money, money, money

Always sunny

In the rich man’s world

Aha-ahaaa

All the things I could do

If I had a little money

It’s a rich man’s world

In case you didn’t realize those are the lyrics from the chorus of ‘Money, money, money’ by ABBA, the musical group. If you still can’t catch up at this point then I can’t help you any further.

Many say that money is the root of all evil. If you just begun nodding and smiling then I dare to tell you to stop being ridiculous. First of all, the correct saying is, “the love of money is the root of all evil.” Secondly, anyone who says he or she does not like money is either a liar or living in self-delusion.

Money, the way it should be is a means to achieving an end in this world. Even ABBA agree that we live in a rich man’s world and so if you want to get anything done, then your pockets must make some noise. However, you can’t get what you are not passionate about. That’s just how life works. You have to like it to have it.

More so, we give too much credit to money. It can only corrupt when it stops being a tool and makes you a tool. That’s when the evil begins. Some say, quite ignorantly that because they want to live a pious life, they abstain from money. Well, go down that road and you will starve to death because in this world, it can only be sunny if you have got money.

Thus, stop living a fearful life or being a hypocrite in the name of sanctity and go chase value to attract money. Money is smart enough to pursue those with value. It is that simple, do you believe?
