Voltaire – Don’t Think Money Does Everything For You

Voltaire - Don't Think Money Does Everything For You

“Don’t think money does everything or you are going to end up doing everything for money.”

– Voltaire

When it comes to balancing life goals and finances, it’s easy for people to place more importance on money than it is worth. A lot of people think that money will solve all of their problems, and that it’s the key to success.

However, this line of thought is dangerous – when you believe that money is the solution, then everything that you do will be in pursuit of money, when the effort would be better spent in pursuit of your passions, the people you love, and the values that drive you. In other words, be wary of putting the cart before the horse.
