We always say that, we have problems. Couldn’t finish your assignment, a problem; Couldn’t find a job, a problem; Breaking up with your boyfriend, a problem; Your ex-boyfriend is dating another girl, also another problem.

 

But what is problem at the first place?

 

Actually, a problem only exists if you’re worrying about it. When you start worrying about something, it turns into a problem. While on the other hand, if you’re not worrying about it, no matter how bad the situation is, it is not a problem for you.

 

For example: couldn’t finish your assignment, who cares? 10 marks only mah, not a problem; Couldn’t find a job, who cares? I can still live without working, not a problem; Breaking up with your boyfriend, who cares? Guys are lining up for me, not a problem; Your ex-boyfriend is dating another girl, who cares? I’m dating another guy as well, not a problem.

 

Even if the world were really going to collapse in 2012. Who cares? All people are dying with me and I couldn’t change this fact anyway. Therefore, worrying leads to problems, excessive worries lead to excessive problems.

And then, people say that: Money is not omnipotent.

 

But the fact is: Money is not omnipotent, it is almost, omnipotent.

 

Money cannot buy life, but it does extend your life; Money cannot buy time, but it does buy you workers to finish your work; Money cannot buy knowledge, but it does give you the opportunity to gain knowledge.

 

The main role of money is solving problems. When we have a need, or want, we start to worry of it (foods, house, cloths, etc), and then it becomes a problem for us. And that’s when money comes to play, we pay, we got what we need or want, we’re not longer worrying, problem solved.

 

Again, people always say that: Money cannot solve all the problems. But the fact is, money does solve, I suppose, 99% of the our problems (Of course, excluding natural disasters and death). And that’s why, money is almost omnipotent.

 

------------------------------

 

Therefore, if we link everything together and go backward, it’d be something like this.

 

If you have money > 99% of you problems will be gone > you will be 99% less worrying > 99% less stress > life is good for you.

 

You know why I blog about this? Because life is not really good for me now, I feel stressful, I’m worrying, I have problems. Why?

 

NO MONEY LAH!

    if you have a blog, you are already certified richer than most living creature.

    If money can solve 99% of all problems, then i guess its that 1% problem that screws up our life over and over again no matter how rich one is
