Good Day, mylotters! This discussion is about money. There are few things I want to mention and few things to ask. First, do you think that money rule the world? I mean, don't you think that people think about money too much nowadays? I think I'm so tired of worring about my life. So tired of problems and etc. I just found out that money is the universal key for any door! So, I just want to ask you : - What's the money's meaning for you? - How many times a day you think about money? Thank you!!!

Hey Money dose rule the world, but it rules it's own world, go around there and ask about happiness, you'll get the answer "Who?" It's true that people think about it a lot, it's sad really, I've seen people ruin their lives because of this Also, it is the universal key for any door, but it also brings the lust of opening more and more doors, and soon you find yourself just randomly opening infinite doors without even looking inside ... Money for me, hmmm, a pest that kills millions of people, be it by starvation or insanity Also, I try not to think of it at all, but my family is not exactly rich, so sometimes I have to, but only for a short time, I get far to annoyed of the matter Sorry if I'm a little ... disturbing, I'm actually having problem with the matter currently, but hey, you asked!

Don't worry, sindoria! Actually, I may sound a little disturbing as well. It's because I have the same problem! But I'm still hoping for better days! And we can always have fun, anyway. So it's not that bad as it seems.

Unfortunately, you are right, money is the key to opening doors that without it you would not have a chance of entering. If you don't have money you are out of luck (around the world). I don't have money so I have to be very careful how much I spend and what I spend it on. If I were in the affluent crowd things would not be difficult. I would rather be rich than poor any day.Being broke (lack of money) is stressful. One has to worry about losing their home and other important components to having a healthy lifestyle. Having money would meaning being able to pay my bills on time, helping my family,and having less stress. I will not say that having money will make me happy (to some degree that would be true)because the money itself cannot make one happy, but how they use it will or will not.

Money is such a central pre-occupation in our mind that we can hardly stay a minute without thinking about money...why? Because we live in a cash nexus world, a world where you can't find the basics of life without money...everything has been so commercialized in our world that for example, should poverty enter your house through the the main door, love will escape almost immediately from your house through the window! You think about spending money as soon as wake up in the morning-as for me, the maid is usually there to let me know, there is no tooth paste, no sugar, no bread, no salt etc and that makes it extremely difficult to avoid thinking about!

For me, the meaning of money is that it is what we need in order to maintain our lifestyle. However, if we were able to maintain the life that have without money, then there would be a lot less meaning of money in my life. That said, with the current situation that we are in regarding money, I think about money several times a day. I start off the day by checking our bank balance to make sure that nothing is awry. Then, I will also check the account every time that I get home from being off. I also worry about money when it is time to pay our bills.

Money is definitely important and a must thing to spend life, one can buy anything which is available in the market but few things can not be bought using money that includes emotions and love. I did not think that how many times do I think about money. Thank You for sharing.

At the moment, I have been thinking about money far too often lately. Or rather the lack of money. I am not working except for the little freelnace writing that I can do around being a full-time college student. And my wife is substitue teaching part-time as she tries to finish up her master degree. Because of all this, at the moment, money is a reminder of that the economy and my bank account are both low in funds.

Good question "stand", -Each and everyone has needs and wants,when they want to fulfill those needs and wants, the thought of money comes into the mind. -Though most of he problems could be solved with the help of money,there are certain problems where money fails. for eg. lonliness -The meaning of money can be thought as the powerful resource to gain resources. Thnak you

Money is a tool, that can make you more of the person you already are. It can used for good, or evil, or it can lay dormant, if you are a good person it makes you better, and if you are a bad person it makes you worse. I think about money all the time, I visualize flowing into my life from multiple sources, and as a result of this near obsession, I receive money about twice a week from a variety of different places. Of course, if you are only thinking I need money, rather then I have money, you will always be needing it, and ever be having it. Sincerely and With Appreciation. P.S, thank you I just had a brilliant revelation from this discussion in terms of building my MLM organization, instead of thinking I should and I oughta, I am now going to be thinking I do and I have. Cheers.

Unfortunately yes money does rule the world but I have found out that the more money you have the greater your problems. I mean yes I do worry about money as far as being able to pay my bills and being able to put a decent amount of food on the table but no further than that. I don't constantly think of it and wish for extravagant things or the minute I get a little I don't straight away wish I had more than I got because I am happy with what I have. It is important to not let money rule your life because if you do you are going to be miserable. Trust me I have known people who were well off and all it did was cause problems, I mean even their family didn't care for them only what they would get from them.

Money or more lack of it is my biggest source of stress. I would like to be a person who does not have to worry about it so much all of the time. It is hard to do when you are getting collection calls and wondering when you can go to the grocery store to buy food, that is really difficult. I keep thinking one day things will get better and then maybe I won't have to think about it so much.

I usually don't think about money a lot, unless I'm trying to earn it to buy something I want, and then I think about it a lot.

I don't think of money that much even though I don't have it. I have some unpaid medical bills that may or may not go to collections. I don't have a job right now, so I can't really pay them. My number one priority right now is getting back into school because I can always find jobs on campus.

Don't corrupt your mind thinking of money always. I know how important money is in today's materialistic world but I just refuse to think of money as I fear of becoming a slave to these pieces of papers which many are so busy accumulating lots of it to cushion their life comfort. Money is just an exchange tool to get what is needed for survival. Too much of money will only lead to greediness of wanting more and more of it just to be wealthy and above everyone else. I think, if the value of money is removed from it, it is reduced to mere papers.

I think about money many times a day. I am in university right not and the tuition is really high. Not to mention that I have to move to a new city to attend. Everyday, I think about the rent that I need to pay, whether I should turn the lights on because I pay electricity, whether I should even go to the bathroom and how I am going to pay for the tuition next quarter. I guess money matter a lot in my life at this moment,

I think we all think about money. It is only when and how many times.If we are in debt, it is always an issue. For the rich, money is of little concern. anyway, I only think of money when I have to pay bills and when I need to go for groceries.

I think about money all the time..or the lack of it lol. But, I don't beat myself up about expensive presents as I have saved a bundle buying ALL OF THEM ONLINE, mainly at Amazon. So I'm feeling rather smug right now. Having no money makes me think about how to save when I have money, if that makes sense. It goes further. I do appreciate money a lot more than I used to my friend.

Instead of asking as to how how many times do you think of money.....you should ask as to how many times do you forget about money.Every one always thinks of money only and nothing else.As you rightly say money is the universal key for any door you need the key to enter any door whatever it may be.Your problems will be solved by 50% if you have money. Money means everything to me.If some one says money means nothing to him or her..don't believe.. he or she is hyprocate...
