Money can buy security.
A good job, material comforts, perhaps maybe just cold hard cash and equities, I will feel more secured when I have more. I know I can take care of future needs.
Money can buy comfort and worldly pleasures
Money can buy the most expensive healthcare.
I used the word expensive, common wisdom is the more expensive it is, the better it is.
Money can buy some respect.
I think so, you do not have to agree.
Money can buy choices.
Money can buy some time.
Time saved and well spent because you use money to buy convenience. Think car, domestic helper, etc.
If you do not agree on all of the above, why are you reading financial blog?
Money cannot buy health, but no one can ensure health. They can choose not to destroy health, that's all.
Money cannot turn back the clock, again, nothing can, wouldn't it be a better option with money.
Money is something I can grabs, something I can count, something that is everywhere.
It is something tangible, something within area of control.
So What is my point?
What happens if you do not have money? Or as much as I hope I can to buy all the above.
I buy my mind.
I buy my values.
I have nothing else.
