Why build wealth when in the end you will be dead

Why build wealth when in the end you will be dead?

It is the age-long truth that we all came empty-handed and we all will go empty-handed. What matters the most is what lies in between!

We are all meant to live in joy and happiness. That what makes us feel good! Makes us content!

Satisfaction, pleasure, happiness, is what we all search and thrive for! Our times are limited. It is now or never. Everything’s ‘happening’, not ‘happened’ neither ‘will happen’. So, live the present in complete harmony.

But there’s something weird in the middle of everything! People believe in possession instead of sharing!

Hence I came up with this topic that will try to explore what makes wealth so important – that we gotta fight hard to build it, while in the end we will possess nothing and say goodbye!

 

Why do we need money?

We can completely survive without money. But what will then value the hard work we do. The work that gives some productive output while utilizing the costliest of everything, ‘Time’!

We all need something in return! This world is a complete give and take! Hence to unify everything, we need money!

And everything’s worth a certain amount of money! Money has the purchasing power!

Hence money can technically buy anything that’s not an emotion and that lies under human jurisdiction!

 

We need a house to live, food to eat, water to drink, electricity to bring lights to nights, and so on!

We are all working for each other. Some plow the field, some sew clothes, someone’s supervising the turbines so that we never run out of electricity, and the list goes on and on.

So monetary wealth is important!

As you can very well see, if you are not a productive member of the society, you can never understand the worth of money.

Only those who have done something productive, have valued money!

Don’t expect to get your pair of jeans for free, the daily bread for free, or rather anything for free.

Do the hard work, walk the tough road, get paid, and buy what you want and desire!

 

So why build wealth when in the end you are dead and can’t have anything?

Because unless you have a pleasurable life, you won’t have a pleasurable death! A wise friend of mine said it’s better to die in a golden bed rather beside a sewage!

Quite true!

We want satisfaction and happiness. If we can’t claim anything on this earth as ours, then our reason to live is nil!

Hence don’t get carried away by this fact that “there’s no need for anything, as, in the end, it doesn’t really matter.”

Well, in the end probably it won’t matter, but as of now, it does matter!!

 

Your tools to build wealth?

Consider ample savings. Claim as much money as you can and make it rightfully yours. But obviously not via evil means.

Savings and investments are what you should do. If needed,  switch to a better job that pays you well and that offers growth!

Have more income to experiment with more money! Your aim should be to build wealth that can compensate your daily needs, even if the market hits high rates of inflation, and you have no source of income!

Take seriously your retirement savings and always pay attention to what inflation can do to your money!

So, build wealth to live for the present and not for the future!

Build wealth even if in the end it doesn’t really matter!
