Hey mylotters who work hard earn and buy, hope that we get all the blessings that we need for this year. We work hard, earn the money and buy the things we need and want. This is now the cycle of most of us and hey it is only practical, we need stuff so we need cash and to get cash we have to diligently work for it. It maybe easy for some and extremely difficult for others but the cycle remains it point of view, If you work you get paid and once you've been paid you have money and with your money you buy.

Yes, that's true. We work to earn money and to be able to provide for our family. We also work harder if we want some extra money for some of our wants not only needs. Thus, a lazy person can never get money and not be able to provide for the family. Except of course if he is already rich from inheritance that was given to him/her. But then, he /she still needs to manage them well, lest it will all be gone and leave him/her with nothing.

Well, arjunm you can also save some for yourself, if you like to. Just try to be thrifty in other things, so you could spend some of your money in a thing you want to to buy. It's just a matter of being thrifty in all ways.

Well, many times this is the way things are. We go to work in hopes of being able to pay bills and buy things. Without work usually does not come any money, and then we starve, and usually suffer in other ways as well. Most of the time that is why it is important to work hard at no matter what you are doing to get rewarded nicely whether it be working for someone else or for yourself. Even online if you put in the efforts then money usually comes back to you as well.

Hey there krausehome, All things done with effort and hardwork pays off most of the time and i guess if your on the job better be on the job consistently that is the only way to make it in this world. You work hard , you get paid, you earn, pay the bills and your monthly amenities and if your luck you get spre change to save for that brand new Mercedes Benz, I mean for rainy days. Thanks for commenting.

Hey deodavid. Yes, I do agree. It is a cycle, and I think if we can just put some meaning or purpose into it, we can even find some joy in this whole cycle of - work, save, have some cash, buy - just to make a living. I am trying to get to the point this year, when I earn any money, to at least add good value to someone's life in the process.

As much as possible, you will only buy those things that you need. Try to practice it! I know that it's so hard to do that. Even myself would not able to control in buying my wants. But if you will incorporate discipline, later on you will realize that you are now able to resist in buying those stuffs. Once you have accumulated lots of money, you now then let it work for you. This is exactly opposite on what most of us are doing right now which is working for money. By that time then, we can say the it would be cycle: work, money, buy. But of course, I am referring to average earning people like me. Rich individuals can afford to have all their wants.

sethalex, Right on, it is nice to only spend on the things that are truly what we only need and not force the issue in the things that are not vital to our existence but there are just times that you need to give something to your self as a reward on a job well don right???

hello David, this is the absolute cycle that we all go through all our life to give that extra things for ourselves, those beautiful gifts to our loved ones, those parties that we would want to throw for our friends, those big treats we need to give others for our little mere successes. Money rules most of our life and we forget the rest of our life earning that money. But yes, when we do something special for our loved one's, then it means something more than our life. I guess all of us work so hard for this sort of happiness only!

Hi shrijsr, I guess so, so let's get started on producing more money to get more things so as not to let the cycle end. And at least have some kind of happiness which is giving to our loved ones something that we have worked hard for.

hi there deodavid, you are absolutely right on that point. wherein, we work, then being paid, after sometime, spend the money and buy. on my part here, after i do the work and earn the money, i am not spending it quickly, as i am waiting for the next one to come before spending the previous. so that, i can have at least a saving which i can use in time when such situation arise. however, if i cannot do that, i will see to it that i will save at least a single penny in my pocket so i can still have a small amount to save when rainy season begins.

Hey there airashiela, Yup it is very iportant to save for the rainy days i for one have a savings account it earns about 20% after a year and it is only for 11 months that you can put your mooney in there and it is given back in full plus 20% interest. Ive been with it for 3 years now and the money is just great but i can only put in a small amount so it's really not that much but more than adequate, better than saving in the bank.

yes. That's how it is. Money is not a problem as long as we have sufficient income. We don't have to be millionaires to be happy. We only need enough for our needs and some money to use to get what we desire(material ones)

Hey Aja103654, It is true that we just need to focus on the things that we can afford and need to afford, sometimes buy things that we want only if we really want them. Too much material stuff anyway will take up space and burn our pockets.

Too bad many people believe that only money will bring them happiness. They bring us luxury, not happiness. Not necessarily. I will remember that!

Minimalism is the key!!! Buy what you need when you need it and don't get more that what is intended for you.

We work to earn money and I can only look at it for a while before paying the bills. It's all gone in a puff. Not to mention, all the things we need to buy each month. Living expenses are so high these days. I don't think I am working enough to cover up everything.

I have so many debts to pay, so i want money, but i know i will not be able to save money nor buy anything from it. The money would just come and go till these debts are over.

Hey there indi15, No need to fret when your debts are gone then it is off shopping anyway you have developed the sense of working very hard then just continue with it then just be on your way when all of the debts are gone, still work hard to buy the rewards that you would like to give yourself.
