20 Great Things in Life Money Can’t Buy

 

“You only have control of 4 things in your life: the thoughts you think, the images you visualize, and the actions you take.” --Jack Canfield

 

It is easy to get our priorities mixed up and forget that great things in life money can’t buy. Materialistic things only bring us temporary happiness. The media would like us to believe that we need the latest and greatest electronics, accessories, expensive and fancy cars and a big, fancy home house. We deserve it, right?

We often become slaves to all of our stuff. Slaves to our spending.

“We buy things we don’t need with money we don’t have to impress people we don’t like.” –Dave Ramsey

 

Buying expensive, materialistic things we think will make us happy causes us to enter a vicious cycle. We end up working hard in order to afford the flashy car or pay the mortgage on our expensive, fancy, new house. But, once we get paid, we often feel like we deserve something more for all our hard work. We need something new and right now. Maybe we go out to a fancy restaurant for dinner and drinks…because after all, we deserve it. We have been working so hard, right?

So we spend more money on more things causing us to continue having to work hard to keep up the lifestyle we think we need to be happy. Looking for happiness in our possessions may bring temporary happiness, but it just doesn’t not work long term.
