Money is honey, Money is power & Money is everything. Many people think there is nothing in this world money can’t buy. They spend days & nights making money, money & money with the hope of buying everything.
But when they make money, I mean lots of money, they realize there are many things in their life they can’t buy.
There are at least 10 big things you can’t buy even if you spend all your money. It does not matter if you’re a millionaire or a billionaire. If you don’t have the following 10 things in your life then you’re actually poor.
10 Things Money Can't Buy
Check the list of those things & tell me if you can really buy these things with all your money & if not then stop making more money & try to bring true happiness in your life.
1. Happiness, Joy, True Love, Care, Compassion
Money could never buy happiness and joy in your life. Happiness could come from anything not necessarily money and things like a car or a million-dollar home. But small things like family and friends.
True love, in other words, unconditional love is something that can’t be bought with money. There are people who have a lot of money but they failed to find true love in their life.
Similarly, care and compassion are feelings that money can’t give you. It really doesn’t matter how rich you’re if you don’t have happiness, joy, true love, care, and compassion in your life then you’re poor.
2. Character of a Man
It’s a quite popular saying that if the character is lost, then everything is lost. And it’s so true in our life. If you’re not a man of strong character then you can’t earn respect.
It really doesn’t matter how big your car or home is. People mightn’t say anything in front of you but they do complain at your back if you’re a loose character.
Money can’t buy character it is something that you get through hard work throughout your life.
Usually, a character is associated with a woman, but it has to do more with men.
3. The Lost Time
Do you remember the song “wo kagaz ki kashti wo barish ka pani…..” by Jagjeet Singh.
Time and tide wait for nobody. Money can’t buy the time that is lost. If you wasted your time then money can’t get it back. How much do you’ve?
If you’re a student, then don’t kill your time, utilize it in a positive manner. Like going to the library and reading books or learning something creative. But don’t sit idle.
The time that you’re killing will never come back. Once it’s gone, it’s really gone. How much money you’ve it really doesn’t matter.
Realizing the importance of time is very important because time is your money.
4. An “Idea” that Can Change the World
Einstein’s theory of relativity changed the entire notion and understanding of the universe. That was an idea that really changed the entire world.
Money could never get you an idea like that. It is said the time has come for an idea. If you don’t have an idea, then you can’t make a change.
In fact, money comes if you have a great idea. Just one idea could change your life. Not the money.
5. A Good Health & A Long Life
Health is wealth. Good health has nothing to do with money. Even a mediocre man can possess good health. If you work and eat properly with a daily dose of exercise then you’ll always remain in a good shape.
Just because you’ve money and you can hire some expensive doctor, and he’s going to keep you in a good shape is totally wrong. You can’t have good health by hiring an expensive doctor or going to a posh gym.
You must work hard and be ready to step out of your comfort zone.
It’s not necessary that wealthy people live more than people who’ve less money.
6. Family and Friends
As I said earlier, happiness is the first thing that money can’t buy. And one is most happy when he or she is with mom and dad. You’re blessed if you get that unconditional love from your mom and dad.
Many people on this planet have a hell lot of money, but they didn’t get the love, affection, and care from their parents. Money is not going to get it for them.
Similarly, all your friends. You might’ve many friends but to have one true friend is really being lucky. You can’t buy one with millions or billions of dollars.
7. A Goodnight Sleep
You might’ve seen advertisements of pills and drugs for a sound sleep. People, especially those who’re rich, suffer from insomnia, i.e., lack of sleep.
You’re not going to get a sound sleep just because you’ve money or you’re rich. You’ll keep rolling from one side to another the whole night, even if you’ve taken thousand-dollar pills daily before sleeping.
All you need for great sleep is all-day hard work, not drugs.
8. A Loving Spouse
Money is not going to buy your true love. You can never find the spouse of your dreams with the help of money.
Off course, money could help in elevating your social status, but it can’t find your life partner.
I’ve seen people who’re rich, but they’re unmarried because not able to find a perfect match.
To get a spouse that is caring and compassionate, you need a lot of luck, not just money.
9. Home Cooked Food, Childhood Memories, School Days
On a lighter note, home-cooked food especially prepared by your mom is something that you can’t get anywhere. How much you’re ready to pay?
These are small things that money could never buy for you in your life. It’s actually little pleasures that count rather than billion-dollar cash in your bank account.
Similarly, there’re other things like your childhood, school, and college days that money is never going to get you.
10. Off Course! Peace of Mind and Contentment
The final and most obvious thing is peace of mind. If your life is going through up and down and you’re disturbed, then money can’t help you.
Contentment or satisfaction is the only thing that gives peace of mind. If you’re not content with what you get or earn, then you’ll not be happy.
I’ve personally known people who make a lot of money, and they’re millionaires but still not satisfied with what they’re getting.
Feeling of discontentment is never going to make one happy in their lives.
Perhaps money could buy many things, but it can never buy feelings of contentment.
Money can only fulfill your materialistic needs, but it can never buy above mentioned ten things.
To live a happy life, find these ten things in your life rather running after money and fame.
Do you know any other things that money can’t buy then share them with us & others?
