Pablo Picasso – Living Poor, With Lots of Money

Pablo Picasso - Living Poor, With Lots of Money

“I’d like to live as a poor man with lots of money.”

-Pablo Picasso

Wouldn’t we all? Wealthy or poor, we’ve all had the wish for more money. To spend on ourselves, to spend on our loved ones, to spend on whatever frivolous (yet much needed) contraption Apple can think up next. But though we may wish for money, the goal of life can’t be achieving money, the goal should be enjoying the ride and letting the money fall where it may. Money or not, try to live simply. I sat in a class with a guest speaker who gave each of us $100, and told us to keep $20 but give away $80.

He taught us that giving can be one of the most powerful triggers of happiness, and to always keep money aside to give away. You don’t have to have heaps of money to be rich, just as you don’t have to live lavishly when you are. Living simply, giving often, and achieving your goals will not only make life less complicated, but it will also lead you to happier self-awareness.
