Money, in and of itself, is not very spectacular, but you can’t survive for long without it. What money can do for you is what is really important. Money gives you freedom and choices.

Obviously, you need money to cover your basic needs: food, shelter, clothing. Beyond that, how much money you need will be determined by what else you want. Unfortunately, most people fail trying to find a good balance between making and enjoying money. You can definitely solve most of your problems of life if you have unlimited supply of money.   The only problem is that you don’t earn money by any amount of wishing, praying or wanting. You have to work hard for it.

So, how do you get money? The best way to achieve your financial and lifestyle goals is to prepare yourself for a good career. And, the best way to do that, is to get a good education. Graduating opens the doors to the job market and then the adventure begins.  Choose your career path, but don’t make your decision based solely on money. Your career should involve work you find interesting and which you enjoy. Working just for a paycheck is a job, not a career.

Be patient, stay in school, get educated, and pick a career that will pay you for doing something you love.
