As we get older begin to realize the importance of money. The trick is to not strike a balance and to not tip over one side of the scale. You don’t want to care too much about money or to care very little about money. You need to be able to understand that money is vital for you to live and to make your life easier. It’s not a nice feeling struggling for cash. Your entire focus will be putting food on the table and a roof over your head, thus you begin to neglect your spiritual self. Nevertheless, it is true that the best things in life are free. You can buy sex but you cannot buy love. You can buy books but you cannot buy knowledge. You can buy materialistic things that give you temporary pleasure but you cannot buy eternal happiness. All of these things are the gift of life.
However you will not be able to recognize this if you do not understand the importance of money. When you do not have money you will not be thinking of these beautiful things. You will be focusing on school fees, bills, mortgages, food and basic necessities to survive. Once you have all the basic things then you will be able to focus of the spectacular things beyond them. Therefore the trick is to find a job that suits your lifestyle and is able to get you where you need to be. You need to think about a variety of factors. Do you have a family? Do you want a big house? Do you have pets? Do you want to travel? Do you have any hobbies? How much money do you need to cater for all other aspects of your life so that you need not worry and can focus on your spiritual self. There are many jobs out there that can be more convenient to each person life style of living. For example free lance writing, it can be done anywhere from ones house to the main cities central park.
