Have you ever read words of motivation such as ‘You can have all the money you want’ and felt it sounds tacky? After all, aren’t the best things in life free?

No matter how many inspiration messages I read, I felt the same way. For this reason I found it difficult to set goals except vague ones along the lines of ‘I want to be happy.’ Happiness is great but how would I know if I was ‘nearly happy?’

After much thought I began to understand that the way modern society is set up very little is truly free. The truth is we live in a materialistic society.

Nearly everyone needs money to pay for such things as housing, food, transport and so forth and most work long hours to earn it. The sad fact is we work so many hours earning money that we have little time for those important ‘free’ activities.

My dreams include spending more time with friends and family, having quiet walks in beautiful countryside and making a difference to the lives of other people. To achieve these things, I need to have the problem of money sorted out first.

What do charities continually ask? Have you got some money you can spare? The Salvation Army distributes love and support to many people but always need money to do so.

I was lucky enough to hear words of motivation from a great speaker: the former Vice President of IBM and successful businessman, Bill O’Brien. He put it well: “Money is not important, I just put it up there with oxygen.”

So never feel guilty when your dreams and inspiration messages include the need for more money.

Incidentally, on the subject of money, I tend to disagree with authors whose words of motivation tell us to picture the amount of money we want to earn. I believe it is more important to concentrate on what the money would bring. Think about what you would have, do and become as a result of becoming financially free. Would you prefer to visualize $1 million or the house that could buy?

So don’t get me wrong – the money is not the end. It simply helps us get to the point we want to be. The entertaining speaker and author Pat Mesiti puts it well: “There is something far greater than money – it is purpose.”
