I'm sure many Singaporeans would agree that having money is part of being successful. But have you ever thought of how money can stop you from being successful? While money can be a big part of success it can also limit you.
If you don't believe that money could potentially hinder you from being successful, check out these arguments from GET.com showing 4 ways that it can. Keep in mind, while money is an important part of life, it doesn't have to be your whole life.
4 Ways Money Can Stop You From Being Successful
1. You Use Money As A Measure
When it comes to monetary success or fulfillment, do you use money to define and validate every aspect of your life?
The truth is, you're never going to be successful if you use money as your sole method of measuring your quality of life.
Some people define their success by what kind of person they've become, or how they've brought up their kids.
The thing is, success doesn't always have to be about becoming a millionaire. Success is subjective.
2. You Can't Look Past Money
It's always about how much you're earning or how much your friend earns, or how much you get for your bonus.
You're so obsessed with money and wanting to make more, that you forget there are other aspects of your life that you need to work on order to become successful.
If this is you and you can't seem to let go of the money in your hands, then maybe you should read these 4 reasons why money really isn't everything.
3. You're Too Afraid To Spend Your Money (Aka Stingy)
Singaporeans are called kiasu for a reason (although I think we're slowly moving away from that).
Putting your money too closely to your chest is just going to portray how money-minded and even how calculative you are as a person.
Or maybe you're not a stingy person but you're just afraid to buy stocks or get into investment. While that's totally acceptable because investments are a big risk, you can't just stay within your comfort zone all the time and still expect things to progress.
4. You Have Too Much Money And You're Complacent
If you think having all the money in the world is all you need to be successful, sorry to burst your bubble but, it's not.
To put it simply, once you start to feel like you don't need to better yourself, there's a problem there somewhere.
Life is a never-ending journey of lessons, and being complacent is not going to do anything for your betterment.
In our changing world, a fortune can be lost overnight and skills that once made you rich can become redundant overnight.
So if this is you, it's time to clock a reality check and start opening your mind to acquiring more knowledge even if it's not going to have anything to do with making money.
