I know it’s not just me. I know there are a lot of people who experienced this, is experiencing this, or will experience this. (You better continue reading this if you want to avoid the unpleasant experience.)
When I work purely for money, (or if not purely but the main aim is money), my crafts don’t turn out so good.
And if there’s more money involved, I end up just thinking “I’ll get this money if I finish doing this blah blah”. Then if I receive a little money in the beginning (which was enough for me then), I’ll be thinking “I think I deserve to get more money. I should I ask for a raise.“
Greed. That’s greed.
It works like this. You receive money enough for your needs, then you’ll want more, more, more, and more. So fellow men, don’t believe that the answer to corruption is raising the salaries of our government employees. They’ve got enough salaries. If you raise that, their greed for money will just increase.
Forget that money makes the world go round. That’s utterly a misconception. Bill Gates? Steve Jobs? Mark Zuckerberg? Of course they’re rich. But they didn’t start their careers with the goal “To have billions of money.” What they did was simply use their talents, their passions. Money came after that.
Money won’t get you anywhere. Money will eat you. Greed will eat you. You’ll be nothing but a slave of money.
