THE TRUTH ABOUT SACRIFICE

images (1)

Sacrifice: v. to extremely attach to a goal(s) which frequently causes an extreme decrease in the variety of personal goals and/or a large change in material wealth

Sacrifice means ignoring many desirable personal goals in the pursuit of one or relatively few other goals such as extreme wealth and/or professional success.

Altruists are not the only ones making personal sacrifices to achieve their primary goal.

Many leaders and celebrities sacrifice family, close friendships, and relatively mundane pleasures for leadership or celebrity success.

Working hard to acquire new skills and knowledge seems like sacrificing a life of leisure and indulgence for many but to the hard workers it is means opening up new possibilities for future beneficial opportunities.

If you are not ignoring important things then you are not sacrificing them and if you are ignoring trivial things then sacrificing them is almost an obligation.

17 MONEY TRUTHS ABOUT HUMAN NATURE: PART 2

love-of-money

The grass is always greener in someone else’s yard.

This is largely true because no matter how well off you are you will always be able to find someone who is better off than you financially, is more prestigious, or has a better family life than you.  That person can then become the source of pessimistic envy or optimistic motivation to do even better in life.

 

Easy come, easy go.

 

This applies to people who get a lot of money very quickly and also wind up spending it almost as quickly. Perfect examples of this are many lotto winners who very quickly spend their riches in a thousand and one stupid ways and wind up where they started- almost broke. There are exceptions to this principle but there are few who, without experience in money management, wind up investing the money wisely.

 

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

 

If you don’t invest your time, energy, and money in something, then you will probably not make much progress in your life and gain nothing of importance. Some people may get lucky and inherit money without venturing anything, but this happens to very few people.

 

 

Every achievement requires a sacrifice

 

This just states the fact that investing your time, energy, and money trying to achieve something means that other important things in your life will have to be ignored or sacrificed.

Time with family, friends, and hobbies are some of the things that may be sacrificed. An achievement may mean that you sacrifice a bad habit which may mean cruising bars too much. In this later case you are not really sacrificing or giving up anything that is truly useful.

 

It’s good to give extra money to charity

 

In an age of government welfare funded with your money, private charities are just not that necessary. You can still give money to worthwhile causes or charities such as medical research into an illness or give money to a children’s hospital.

When money speaks, the truth frequently keeps silent.

 

This basically means that money has no morals and can be used for good or bad, truthful or untruthful purposes. Deceitful humans can use money badly and truth suffers. Obviously, if money is used for good and truthful purposes then the truth does not keep silent.

Money doesn’t grow on trees.

 

This is almost always true unless you are in the lumber business.

Keep something in reserve for emergencies

 

Save something for a rainy day- says the same thing.

 

Save money and money will save you.

 

This is especially true for medical or financial emergencies, especially when your credit line is maxed out.  It makes good sense to put away some money for the proverbial rainy day or emergency days in your life. Save enough money and you can retire early. Unfortunately inflation reduces the value of saved money over time and most investments these days are a scam, especially the stock market.

 

Whatever you have spend less.

 

This is one of the major ways of successfully saving money. If you spend less of your money then you will have more left over to save, invest, or spend on something truly useful and necessary.

Politics is used for personal gain

 

Personal gain is definitely what special interest groups want, believe in, and try to get. Rare is the politician these days that wants political office primarily so that he can change society for the better.

 

Redistributing wealth is imperative

 

Redistributing wealth by stealing from those who have it and giving it to those that don’t is not a just way of spreading the wealth unless you are unemployed and also destitute and need someone’s money to survive physically.  As much as possible, the society should reward effort, merit, and achievement with good paying jobs in society that reflect a more just distribution of earned wealth.

Inheritance of old wealth should be promoted by polygamous marriages for the very wealthy so that inherited money will often go to more than one family member.          Politically redistributing wealth to special interest groups is also not a just way of spreading the money around since most of these special interest groups do not generally promote the welfare of all the people.

Some government money can be redistributed and it should go into free internet education in highly technological fields and their corresponding good paying jobs.  This way government can reward effort, merit, and achievement in an objective way. Liberal arts education is just too subjective an area with a lot of propaganda that isn’t helping society at large and this kind of education should only be in the hands of private institutions of learning.

CHANGES IN WELFARE LAWS is an evergreen book which I have written that goes into great detail about how government money should flow into education for those on welfare and those still in school.

 

Much saved money can give you the freedom to do what you really want or to do nothing at all.

 

Enough saved money can set you free of having to work for a living for a while or even for the rest of your life.

With money you can buy a house, but not a home.

 

This basically means that a good relationship with your significant other or spouse and children is what makes for a homey atmosphere in the house that you own.  Just buying a house will not usually improve your relationship with those closest to you if the relationship is not very good in the first place.

 

With money you can buy a doctor, but not good health.

 

Good health comes from eating a healthy variety of minimally processed organic foods, sleeping well, not overstressing your mind and body, and getting a little exercise.  A doctor will usually cure or mask an illness with synthetic drugs which have even worse side effects but may not improve your health which really needs good living advice and practices.

 

With money you can buy a book, but not knowledge.

 

Just buying a lot of books and not reading them will not make you any smarter. Reading much fiction and wordy non-fiction books will just mostly waste most of your time, money, and effort and not give you much useful knowledge which can be applied in the real world.

 

With money you can buy a position, but not respect.

 

Politicians can often get elected by spending a lot of money on a campaign but if they are not morally sound people then they will not be respected by the people and may loose political office the next time around. There are exceptions where respect can develop after buying a position because the person may be very moral and really become good at the job.

I have written an evergreen book HOW TO SAVE MONEY which should be very useful if you would like to save some for luxuries that you can’t afford now or if you would like to invest some in a better education and job. Not many of us save money these days and it is a lost art which can really improve your life in a thousand and one ways.

Another useful evergreen book is HOW TO IMPROVE YOURSELF: HOW TO GET WHAT YOU WANT; HOW TO SAVE TIME & MONEY.

6 MOTIVATIONAL WORDS BEGINNING WITH THE LETTER S

Extreme desire for one goal such a career may mean that other important goals such as a good family life and strong friendships may be sacrificed.  For some women extreme dedication to family may mean that they sacrifice a good career.  Variety in life is usually sacrificed where there is extreme desire for one or only a few goals.
