Money is good. Definitely, having enough money affords us a life of convenience and comfort; however I don’t want us to put so much pressure on getting this wealth. To further help us understand what money is, let’s look at what money is not.

  • Money is not a measure of success

  • Money is not a tool to validate yourself
  • Money is not a tool to avenge yourself of the many wants and insufficiency you had while growing up
  •  Money is not a tool to relay your fear 
  •  Money is not a tool for competition

With the understanding of what money is not in mind, let’s look at what money is

  • Money is a tool for creating value
  •  Money is a means of exchange for goods and services
  • Money is the exchange tool for or comfort and convenience 
  • Money finances our needs and wants 
  • Money is a tool for enhancing impact
  • Money helps create a legacy of recurring income for one’s generation


  • Identify any undue obsession in you;
  •  Intentionally disassociate yourself from it;
  •  Identify any low self-esteem, fear, anger or bitterness in you and redress it first because money does not solve those problems. You may have to seek help from a therapist, clergyman or a trusted fellow;
  •  Clarify our motive for money.
