Problems & Money

Short talk: 123

I got a new target, swimming or jogging everyday. I feel healthy.








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?

    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
