This is a universal truth of life that a healthy man lives a contented and happy life than a wealthy man. Wealthy are not happy and will never be as they are never satisfied with what they have. Their needs and desires are turned into greed which can never make a person satisfied; therefore wealth becomes the root cause of unhappiness of such people.
There are many more things in life which can keep a person happy, enriched and contented throughout their life without the need of becoming wealthy.
MONEY CAN BUY YOU HOUSE BUT NOT HOME, IT CAN BUY YOU BED BUT NOT SLEEP, IT CAN BUY YOU CLOCK BUT NOT TIME, IT CAN BUY YOU BLOOD BUT NOT LIFE
Money, however is inseparable part of human life which cannot be disputed in this present scenario. It is very difficult to visualise living a decent and respectable life without money as it is required to fulfill our day-to-day needs of our life. But a man should not give undue importance to. It is only one of the many components of a human life, which can give man limited happiness like other components.
Money is like fantasy which makes people run behind it. Some people spend their whole life in the pursuit of creating it while wealthy spends their lifetime safeguarding it. Wealthy people spend sleepless nights as the wealth with them is not only the target of theft from external sources but also from within the family which could lead to bitterness in family relations and unhappiness.
The real happy people are those who have contributed their invaluable service to the society without being rich; Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi to name a few. Their wealth has not made them inspiration for others but their service. The ultimate aim of human life should not be earning money as wealth can vanish with time as
“One should not eat to live and live to eat.”
We should consider this human life a boon for us. Everyone is not fortunate to be born as a human being. It is our responsibility to cherish high values, ideals and will to serve the society so that we could leave our imprints in the society we live and prosper. Welfare of society can make us more contented and our life could become more satisfying, complete, richer and happy.
“Superfluity comes sooner by white hair while competency lives longer”
Therefore, a person must have enough wealth to live a decent and respectable life but a man should not allow greediness to rule over his mind. One should try to work for noble causes to be happy without the need of becoming rich. This endeavour could ‘leave our footprints in the sands of time.’
