“The desire for wealth is nearly universal, and none can say it is not laudable, provided the possessor of it accepts its responsibilities, and uses it as a friend to humanity.”– P.T. Barnum

Money comes and go. It makes people comfortable. But it can’t buy happiness. If you want to make yourself happier, make money your friend, not your enemy. Control your money. Don’t let your money control you. Use your wealth to change the world. Use your wealth to make the world a better place. Use your wealth to nurture your soul, not to poison your soul.

Remember, “It is not what you have that matters; it is how you use it that matters.” It does not matter what you have. It matters how you use what you have to change your life and the lives of the people around you. People don’t really care about how much you have until they know what you have for them.

When it comes to helping people, “People don’t care about what you are going to give to them. They care about how you are going to give it to them.” If you want people to respect your gifts, give them with respect.

Dreams are just dreams without action. If you want your dreams to happen, you are the only one who can do that. While you are pursuing your dreams, don’t forget to live.

Your dream will die if you don’t nurture it. Every great thing in life starts with a single dream. Don’t ignore your dreams. Pursue them with all you have left in your energy tank.

It is not going to be easy. But if you don’t give up, if you face your fears, if you listen to your heart, if you believe in yourself, your dreams will come true.
