Five Inspirational Quotes To Remind You Why Money Isn’t Everything

Twitter
These days it seems like everyone is stressed about money. Whether bills are piling up, or you're approaching retirement, taking the time to remind yourself that money isn't everything can relieve the stress and help you to focus on the more important things in life.

"You make a living by what you earn; you make a life by what you give."

This quote reminds us that the value we place on friends, family or even strangers is not defined by how much they take from the world. Their value is determined by what they give back. Being a generous spirit may cause those around you to make more of a conscious effort to be generous as well.

"Remember that happiness is a way of travel, not a destination."

The stress of money management is not only taxing on your pocketbook, it can also be taxing on your state of mind. This quote reminds us that by seeking out happiness while on the road to success you can maintain a positive attitude and achieve your goals simultaneously.

"Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere." - Albert Einstein

The pursuit of money often requires diligence and concentration on the task at hand, leaving little time for creative or artistic pursuits. This Einstein quote suggests that a life filled solely with work can cause you to miss out on experiences that will stimulate your mind in unforeseen ways, possibly even improving your ability to perform at work. Taking the time to visit an art gallery or just taking in a movie can not only remove stress from your hectic schedule, it could also lighten the mental overload of a long work week.

"In between goals is a thing called life, that has to be lived and enjoyed." - Sid Caesar

This quote builds off of the previous quote from Einstein, but the difference in Caesar's quote is that you don't have to actively seek out art or music or film to make your life more fulfilled or meaningful--just pay attention to the world around you! Take five minutes out of your day to sit quietly by yourself. Give yourself a break; you deserve it!

"Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life."

There is one way you can achieve all your financial goals while still satisfying your ambition in the working world, and that is to pursue and attain your "dream job." This quote is trying to say that you should strive to achieve the job you've always wanted in order to feel less anxiety when planning for the future. If you're doing what you love, the road to each of your goals won't seem so long. Though money tends to distract us from what we really enjoy, we can't help but think we would be happier if we had more of it. The next time you reach your boiling point over financial stresses, remember that taking a minute out of your busy day to read just a few inspirational quotes can remind you what's really important in life. Remember these five quotes when you think you may be in danger of forgetting that money really isn't everything.
