Be happy when you think of money

If you want to be happy, you must change your thought about money. Many people think of money negatively. They think of the bills to pay. They worry to death about their inability to save money, and potential problems. When they have such mindset about money, they will not be happy. You cannot be happy if you are worried about money. How do you think of money happily? For one thing, you should view your ability to earn a living as a blessing. It is an ability given to you by God. That means money is the reward from heaven. When you see money as a blessing, you will be happy. You will think of paying forward by donating to charities. Money is just like the rainwater. Sometimes you have a lot of money coming in from everywhere, and sometimes you have drought and you need money desperately. All droughts will end, and the money will flow in again.

Yes, they can tell you not to worry about money, since they can just cancel the service anytime. By that time, your problem is not about money!

Money is not really the root cause. Our greed, desire and habits are the root causes. If we earn, spend a part of it, and save and invest, we will have happy life.

Yeah of course money makes us happy but just don't let it be the center of your life you gotta have to take relationships with people seriously too. But yeah I love money and I love sharing it to people I'm not a selfish person because I see money as a blessing and that it should not be just for me but for others who need my help as well. Happy mylotting! I guess it is obvious in my username that I love money! lol @scheng1

I rather think of the things that money can buy for me. it is a great feeling to know that you can afford if you want to, and you can choose not to buy even if you can afford it. It is a great feeling knowing that we can donate to any charity or help anyone at any time too.

I rarely think about money, probably because I don't have much of it. Money is a bit like you say, just like rainwater, sometimes it's there and sometimes it's not.

I hope that you will have a shower of money soon! I think when we are in trouble, such as in hospital, then that is the time when we know who is our true friend. That is the time when money pours in because everyone wants to help.

My mother tells me to never have a lust or strong desire for money, and not to try to hold onto it too tightly. She says then I will always have enough and it will come to me freely. I notice it works for her, so I am trying the same philosophy.

The strange thing is that this is the philosophy of the rich. They have strong desire for success, but not for money. Money is just the way they measure success. That is why they can donate millions away so easily, and they dare to invest in the market when everyone else is holding tight to their money.

we're on a fixed income so we don't get money pouring in like rain so when our money comes in it's JUST enough to do what needs to be done, so we live month to month on what money we get monthly. BUT I am working to change that as much as can with what I can as in what change we save I try to put so much of it in a hiding place so it's not spent & when I get a few $ saved up I go to my neighbors to turn the change into dollar bills & re hide it to save up & it's working really good cause I have almost 20 $ saved up & hubby don't know.

Money does pour in like rain though that is very rare. It can happen in the form of a bonus or a lucky draw winning or an inheritance or an act of kindness from someone or an investment that turns out well. It seldom happens. There was a time when I won over $8000 worth of prize in a lucky draw. I sold the item and got a few thousands in cash!
