Hi, Many say that money is more important that any other thing to run life! I accept money as one of the factor to drive the life. I feel that we still have some more factors like money to drive the life. What are that factor that you lean on to drive you life successfully? Probably love and care will be the basic need from the family members to drive life successfully? Do you have any other thing to incline with?

Money is important, but it's not everything. It can sustain our family and our well-being. It can buy good education for our kids, nutritious foods, better healthcare, proper house, services we need to be able to take some time off and spend time with our loved ones, among others. Because we will be able to provide all these with money, it makes us motivated enough to earn more. More than the money itself, I think it is what money can provide for us and our loved ones that really gears us to do well in life. Of course, these are only mere sustenance; the more important factors which drive us to succeed in what we do is it makes us and our loved ones feel good about ourselves. Seeing the love and pride in their eyes for us is something no amount of promotion or salary increase can ever rival.

Hi moulee: Of course not. Money is just a tool. It's just another object that helps people to buy the things they need and to measure the cost of the products and services but money is not the final objective. We look for money to provide ourselves with food, education and to enjoy life. ALVARO

I think love is the most important thing because that you can take to the grave !! I think other things would be like fun , living life to the fullest is important because we dont know when we can be gone , and when life can always get worse . Money is important in the sense to keep you comfortable because its much better to sleep on bed in a house than on card board outside .

Many things in life that can not be obtained with money. Money is important, but not everything. There are rich people who can no longer eat well, for a variety of illness. There is also a rich man who jilted.

Yes money is very important in life. To be successful,to be secure and to survive. It is truly with me! I wish i made enough money to feel fully secure! Then I would not have to worry about money at all! Without it I would not be able to survive for long. Money makes the world go round! At least it does with me!

Money today had become a necessity to every person and without it, one could tell that he/she is lacking one important material thing in his/her life. As money becomes an important material factor of living today, many people are blinded by it and many would do anything to have plenty of it.

A lot of things that we need in life are bought with money, so it is easy to see how we can become almost obsessed with how much money we have, and what kinds of things we need to be doing to try and get more of it. You can start to miss the important things like friends and family if you think too much about your money, so you should try to make sure that you have a solid job, but that you still make time for those who you love. For example, I work hard, but I make sure that I make the time for my friends one evening each week when we go out to do a pub quiz and have a drink as well.

when I was living in the province I thought money isn't very important as the source of living. But when I transferred here in the city, I realized that without money you will be stocked up in the corner of the room, if you don't have money you don't have water,no vegetables, no fruits to eat like banana, starfruit, guava, and mango. I was surprise how city life requires a lot of money; yet despite this fact there is always one thing that I am certain when God is in your life and you let Him be a driver in your life then everything runs smoothly. Things that run my life are the following: life with my Creator and love.

When I was young , having a child of my own was a thing that I really wanted. When I had one, it became my driving force, my priority, my all. Other than that, what runs my life is love. I like being in love, being cherished and lavished.

hi moulee, you are right ,money is the important thing in life,but money is not our life as said by there are lot of things lying in our life, relationship,friendship,parents, health,joy,entertainment and food, we cannot enjoy all these when the lack of money,the parents cannot afford a good care to us when they are struggling for money,in my opnion money will solve 75 percent of our problems the 25 percent covers health,relationships,joy and food,have a nice day.

My veiw on this is that money is a very importand part of life, its a means of surval in todays society. The part about money that I do not believe in is when people of different income brakets are judged. Its not the amount of money that they have that is creating the person that they are. People tend to put to much "stock" in the dollar amount in their bank accounts. Now I would like to point out the fact that many of these people have everything that they "own" on lease. SO if that money stops everything goes with it. I am not rich in cash but I am rich in heart. So with that other point you brought up me being rich in heart means that I can share my love and just help others that may be in need. I am here for my family and I am not working all their life. I then send the concept on love and caring to be really above all else. Money will come and money will go, but I will still be here. And that also offers then another important thing. Security. Eveyone needs to feel secure to be able to be successful in their life.

The truth of life is that it is directed very often by money. It is a driving force but it is not essential for survival. You can live with out it. Well one individual or a few could, but if it came down to the dollar and money failing then it would not be okay and we would not survive. But what I mean is that even a person in the city who had no money could find a way to get to the country to live on the wild life and plants. Things that drive my life is my faith, my family, my hobbies... I try to live under my faith as a good individual and show my family and friends respect and love. I use my hobbies for feeling good about myself and enjoying life. I don't have goals right now but only to feel good inside because without that i won't even want to move on in life anyway I will be miserable.
