Today, we all have a duty to manage the money wisely in our pocket. Of course there is no need to get a bachelor’s degree in economics to have this skill. In today’s world, what is taught in schools leads people to be slaves of money. But what we need to learn is to seize the power of money. Unfortunately, they don’t teach this in economics departments.
A university diploma cannot be a remedy for financial difficulties. Graduation is actually a beginning rather than an end. For sure, we need universities for being productive members of the society. However, these institutions do not teach people to manage money or control their economic fears. Therefore, they cannot guarantee economic satisfaction after graduation.
In fact, we are all “workers”. Let’s not waste our time trying to learn how to make bundles of money or thinking about it. What we need to do is keep control of our budget. When it comes to money, we shouldn’t be trapped by our fears or desires. No matter how much we earn, if we haven’t learned to cope with our fears and desires, then we actually live as high-wage slaves.
We must learn to use our fears and desires to our advantage. We must not let these emotions hurt us. What trapping people is their own negative emotions and ignorance. It is the biggest and most fundamental cause of poverty and financial difficulties. In other words, who are responsible for poverty is not the economy, the state or the rich.
What we need to do is learn to take advantage of our emotions and understand their influence on our thoughts.
When our boss increases our hourly wages, our desires grow and we succumb to our emotions. Many people look forward to a pay day, a raise or authorization. There is no end to these expectations.
Our desires for what to buy will never end. A better phone, clothes, the latest model car or a bigger house… As our income increases, our desires increase and we always need more money.
Desire calls us, fear takes us out of the door, and we walk away without realizing it. This is the trap.
If we can see, we won’t get caught in the traps. If we keep our eyes open on the road, we will not fall into a trap. Being awake, aware, and conscious keeps us safe from many desires and fears. We have to be honest in determining what we really need. We must always continue our effort to know and understand ourselves. When we want to own something, we must try to find out why we really want that thing. These questions can save us from falling prey to our negative emotions.
