If money is evil, try poverty.
Many people believes that money is not important. Yet they cry in poverty and complains their financial difficulty. Lack of money brings stress into their lives. Furthermore, some people thinks that money is the root of all evil. They believe that having lots of money causes many unfortunate event and problem.
What most people don’t know is that money is important, and that lack of money is often the root of all evil doings. Oftentimes, the reason why there are lots of crimes in our environment is money. Evil doers rob people in the streets, houses, banks, establishments, etc. in order to gain a little money.
The bad thing about not having money does not only causes street crimes, but also wrongdoings at home. Such as when we spend more time outside our home working, not being able to look after our children and family, in order to earn a little money.
Sometimes, we even bring our money problems at home. We become irritable and hard to deal with because we stress about our financial instability, the numerous bills to pay and trying to meet with our loan obligations.
We may be aware of it or not, our financial status directly affects our behavior and attitudes. Take for an instance, when we don’t have money problems, such as right after we receive our paychecks, we are often in a good mood. And yet when we don’t have money, our mood is sour and irritable.
My point here is that money is important and not evil. How we perceive and handle our money that what can cause evil thinking and doing. If we are able to have the right money mindset and plan, we don’t have to suffer from the evil things that arise because of money.
This is why it’s important that you start thinking and creating a financial plan. Financial plans that can help you better manage your money and create your financial success.
Three Benefits of Creating a Financial Plan
Here are some of the benefits of creating a financial plan:
1. The first benefit of creating a financial plan is protection from financial crisis
When you have a financial plan in place, you will not become a victim of the global financial crisis and inflation; instead, you will start to see opportunity in it.
2. The second benefit of creating a financial plan is not working for money, your money works for you
Most people go to work because they want to earn money. But if you have financial plan intact, you will no longer work because you need money. You work because you want to, because you are passionate about it. Earning money is just an added bonus. Because when you create a financial plan, your money works for you.
3. The last benefit of creating a financial plan is ensuring a better future for you and your loved ones
In any goal you will set, whether it’s your career, material things and even your financial status, it will start with a plan. Your plan is your road map, a guide to a better future. And the same is true with your financial success once you start creating a financial plan.
