Money has become a very crucial aspect of living. It allows us to provide ourselves with the basic needs of life such as food, clothing, shelter, education, and transportation, as well as forcing us to make realistic choices and place priority on our needs before our wants. But money has changed society a lot. The people who do not make too much are not too happy. They do not have that the nice new car that their neighbor has. They always want something that someone else has because they think it'll make them better. However, those who have money are unhappy a lot. They can never get enough. Everything that they have needs to be updated and when they get the item it's already old so they end up replacing it. For this reason the rich never get to sit back and enjoy what they have. They are too busy buying. For most people in our modern world, money is the first thing, and sometimes the only thing that measures success in their life. Money can buy power. Money can buy fame. Money can buy time. Sometimes money can even buy a life. Thus money has become the first common goal for everybody. However, there is something else that can be the measurement of success in life. For example, the common goal in people’s life is to be peaceful and happy. It might be having a warm family and children, having lots of friends or maybe just having someone who truly loves you. Being the richest man in the world does not mean you are the happiest man in the world, although money can buy you happiness sometimes, but not always. If we could all appreciate the way life is, the fun, and the beauty I think the world would be better. If people weren't power hungry maybe we'd have a lesser demand for money. Those people who is money hungry and power hungry need to relax. Money can't buy you happiness. These individuals need to understand that. Hopefully, in the far future money will become less important and we will begin to focus more on other things like enjoying our beautiful planet....
