Good Money Revolution: How to Make More Money to Do More GoodStart 30 days trial now
Here’s the truth: The way you’re making money right now may leave you feeling empty, no matter the size of your bank account. You keep striving to add another zero to your paycheck, but you’re not getting any happier. Money might buy you that nice car, beautiful home, or dinner at a five-star restaurant, but then that wealthy feeling disappears two weeks after you’ve driven the car off the lot, lived in your home for a while, or digested your wonderful dinner. I’ve worked with thousands of people during my time as a financial advisor, many of whom started from nothing and made a lot of money so they could live the “rich” life. And yet when we sit in my office together, an underlying dissatisfaction remains. Happiness comes from what you do with your money, not how much you have.
A meaningful life doesn’t come from cash or greed. It comes from generosity. Look at yourself in the mirror. If you were gone from this earth, would people remember you because you were wealthy or because of what you did with your life and with your money? How do you want to be respected now and remembered later? It’s time to move from success to significance. Here is what’s at stake: an unfulfilled and unsatisfied life, with your cash sitting in the bank when it could have made a difference in the world.
