Which one is your choose? For me is money for life, we need our money for our life. But i think my brother is not like that. He is a workholic man, he can work from 6.00 am until 11.00 pm. I don't know how he did that but i can do that. For me he is life for money because he though that if he work hard then he will got a lot of money. Are you life for money?

I agree fully with you. Money is the requirement to manage our life, that is all. Though a good number of people consider money is the centre of thier life, but I think those people at last get menoy but lost their life. I do not mean they die, I mean they lost the energy, love and mental peace to enjoy the money they earned.

Dear Angel, if your brother loves his work, then it is completely a different matter. In that case he will get mental satisfaction from his work. I know there are people who are workholic, means they love their work the most in thier life. I also love my work very much. When I comeplete my work assignment successfully, I feel a greatr satisfaction in my mind. But if some one is mad after work only for money, then it will make his life dull and dry,that is my view. Dear, Lankie, I am obliged that you liked my thought and expressed it.

Our pastor said something like this: Why do we need to work? To earn money. Why do we need to earn money? So we could eat. Why do we need to eat? So we could live. Why do we need to live? So we could work. It's a cycle.

I earn money for my life and my life is not for money, it is good if you will earn a lot of money with out disturbing your normal routine , so i think if a person lives for money, that means he is greedy about money, so in that case i think he will not be happy enough to enjoy his life.

I prefer money for life. Though finacially I'm not in a good condition and try to looking for more money to support my onlife and family, I don't want to spend the whole day and life only looking for money. This life has to be balanced, between work, social life, family, love life and religious life. If not, one day we'll find our life is empty and you cannot fill it with no matter how much money you have. This life is only once and we should enjoy it and fill it with many things instead of being workaholic.

Different people have different driving forces in their lives, for me, and because of the experiences that I have and the life that I have lived so far, for me my money is a means to an end, I work so that I can get paid and enjoy my life. THere are other for whom work and money is the driving factor of their life, perhaps because they are hiding away from something or they haven't experienced difficulty or they just get something from the work that really drives them and makes them feel content and happy. It's all good, but what I dislike and strongly disagree with, is that if someone is a workaholic, it is totally unacceptable to expect others to be the same. At the end of the day, we cannot take our money with us, and even if we are totally passionate about the jobs we do, in the end if that is all we have in life then once that has gone we will be very lonely indeed. Much better to balance things up in my opinion. Care about what you do, be passionate about it, but know that there are others out the who feel the same, work just as hard, and that will enable to enjoy life and enjoy some of the money.

I think for me is money for life, we must enjoy the life, then money comes in. If not, we work like stupid but never enjoy life. Most people never think of this question, so they choose "life for money", and work non-stop everyday without any aim or true life.

you take money for life? erm.. then i'll choose opposite of yours.. life for money.. i think i'm so crazy over money nowadays.. and i don't feel like i'm going to change.. why ? because i've seen people suffering without money.. i can sacrifice my life to get money.. and people can buy my life with money.. as with the money.. i can help more people.. if i can use my life to get more money to save more lives.. i think it's a good deal.. why not? why not sacrificing 1 person and save the rest? isn't this a good concept? i just can't accept how those victim of wars suffer.. they're just too innocent.. gosh..
