There are many factors how money influences the lifestyle of people. It could go beyond positive and negative in a way that it changers their lifestyle, change of persona, change of perspective in life. As far as many would earn more while some push through to earn a living. One should consider that money isn’t the only reason of our existence. Although it is a necessity so that we can eat, buy, and educate ourselves, we should keep in mind that there are more relevant purposes on why we live in this world.

Unfortunately money is the main thing that influences people. And many people are influenced by it. Some people just have that greedy streak in them and will stop at nothing to get money. Yes, money is needed to survive, but money is not everything. When you boil it all down, when it is our time to die, nothing he had in life is that important anymore.

Money as they say is the root of all evils- which I beg to disagree. It's not money that push a person to commit crime- it's the evil inside the person. Money can do a lot of good things and money is originally created for goodness, not to destroy the humankind.

There is not doubt that money is one of the most important thing in everyone's life.As for me,'cause I always in a shortage of money situation,so actually money means a lot to me. But I strong believe that money is very important but we can earn it in a legal way only.

Money influences me by making me work harder. You simply can't stay a long time at home not getting payed and still expect to survive. You need to pay your rent or mortage you need food. Really, I don't see money as something to be hooked on to. It is important and a huge part of our daily lives. Still, there is no reason people should kill even family members just to get their hands on the loot. and most chances are they don't use that money for good or just for survival. The invention of more advanced technologies just speak out to people. They simply have to have more money than usual to buy that special thing they want. Money influences very badly that way.

Money is the root of evil but soooo without it. Sometimes I greed too. But we have to think, everything is not made for money. It is essential as a basic thing to buy food. but something else is more important specially if money stands against you honor. You will always have money but not honor if you lose it. Money can never pay for it.

Money which is the must for us without which we cannot do anything and not only this you must have seen that without money one does have the respect may be the family or society also. You must have seen how people appreciate, even if it wrong, whatever the moneyed person do or perform. But if you don't have the money with you then even if you are faithful then no one will believe you or will dare to lend you the money. Money makes the person good or evil its mostly depend upon the situation that occurs at that time.

Hi friend, money is important for our living. But too much of money will give unwanted problems in our life as well as we will lose our peace if we have lot of money. We must earn for our basic needs and avoid greediness to avoid a lot of issues in our life. I am earning for my family and happy with my income.

It is a magical instrument and we never need in our life at all. But when considering the value content of money, we need at every levels in life. I means to say, money is an unavoidable phenominon and we need to handle it properly. As long as the value is depicted in it, and without money the life is horrible and that is the system we follows. This is the reason why people are running after money as it can make wonders in our life. This though persuade people to do anything to get money and for sure, if not handled properly, the 'money' would be a 'villain' in our life.

Money could really greatly influence us if we don't know how to control ourselves and if we don't know how to think. We can omit these crimes by looking for a job to be able to have money. We could all do simple things to be able to earn just like what we are doing here. It's not because you don't have money, doesn't mean it's already good to steal from others. Money influenced me by striving more. Just like now, I am trying to do my best to earn.

MOney is very essential because we can not function well without it. We need this to survive. Money? I worked hard for it if you just know, that to have it. Everybody needs money why not. But, I am not slaved by the money. Actually you can just see the money in the house just anywhere. I am the most generous poor in the family. LOL I spend time giving and buying whatever the family wants.

Money is said to be the root cause of all sinful acts. In reality of life, most people considered money as second to God because if you have money you can do anything you want in your life. Even justice can be bought by your money, even the mind and interest of people can be influence by money, and even attitude/character of your friends and family can be changed through the power of money. You can buy pleasures, worldly material things including life of your enemy. Now, if you're asking how money could influence people the direct answer is that, because there's no impossible in life if you have money. Anything or everything can be influenced if lots of golds are within your hands. However, it will entails important questions. "Was your life is rich in the eyes of God? Was your countless wealth could save you during judgement day? Have you share or give happiness to the people around you? And did you share your blessings to the Lord?

a pleasant day asliah, before, i used to say to myself that money is just a third thing for me. but as the days and months goes by and after how my family have treated me when i resigned from my previous job, i just have realized that money should be treated as the second thing now. because of those situation happened between me and my family, i have just realized that if i don't have a money to spend, i am just nothing in the eyes of my family.
