1. Money is the root cause of all evil.
From an early age, thinking about money was not encouraged.
It was the unsaid rule that money is important, but thinking about it is evil.
After all, money was the reason behind the fights, the wars, and the disagreements.
Now I know it is not money that is the reason.
It is the importance we attach to it in our lives.
Money is simply a medium of transaction.
When it becomes an emotion is when it consumes us.
And that is true for all things in life!
2. Be wary of those who are rich.
It was always assumed that getting rich was possible only through exploitation of others, being cold blooded, and twisting the law in your favour.
Those who are rich are the ones who compromised on their morals.
Now I know that for every immoral rich person, there are countless more examples of people who treat money, people and values with respect.
It’s just that, by design, they are not the ones we hear of or speak of.
News covers the abnormal.
Not the normal.
3. Saving money is important.
Of course, saving is important. But we were never told the complete story.
That investment is more important.
Post demonetization, all the money “saved” by our parents came out.
They were lauded for their saving capabilities.
Most “savings” approaches that we were taught, destroys the value of money.
To make money beat inflation, we were never taught how to invest.
