In our life many important things matters like family, friends, love, joy, fun and much more. “Life shouldn’t be printed on dollar bills”, said by Clifford Odets. socialist.

Money is the driver behind all our lives. Almost every one of us wake up every morning and run to work or to their business just to make buck or more so all can live our lives and take care of our family. It is the driving force but you are the driver behind the wheels. Don’t ever make the money drive you crazy. Robert Orben, famous magician and comedy writer once said, “Every day I get up and look through the Forbes list of the richest people in America. If I’m not there, I go to work”.

Fact #4: The Dream Enabler
Money is the enabler of our dreams. It helps to reach our life financial goals which leads to personal growth. When you set a timeline to your dreams, it becomes goals. When you pave the way to achieve them, you draft a plan. When you implement your plans to get to your goals by taking action, it becomes a milestone or success. Money many times helps you get to your dreams whether its a dream vacation to visit 7 wonders or buying a home.
Fact #5: The Social Signature
Money gives you a strong signature in the society to show your status. If you say, you are millionaire or billionaire. You are surely going to good reception in society. Having a luxury car, bigger home or beach house really adds up to your image. Money identifies you and me to this world whether by categorizing as middle class, lower, higher or upper middle class.
But Mr. Warren Buffet, one of richest man in the world said, “Of the billionaires I have known, money just brings out the basic traits in them. If they were jerks before they had money, they are simply jerks with a billion dollars.” It is that simple.
