How much is enough?

When will you have enough? Is it when you finally own your home? How about when you finally get to purchase that awesome boat? What about a vacation home? What about when you own your own business? What about when you own a farm? Is it when you hit $1,000,000 in the investment account? What about $10,000,000? What about $100,000,000? What about $1,000,000,000?

It is said that John D. Rockefeller, billionaire oilman of the early 20th century, was asked how much money was enough? His response? “Just one more dollar.” WOW!

If you make money the object of your full attention, you will never be satisfied. Money at its very best enables you to help the less fortunate and accomplish great things for others. Money at is very worst leads to brutal deadly conflict.

Choose today to view your money as a resource. You have been hired as its manager? If you are the manager of your money, would you fire you? Make the choice to help others. Make the choice to wisely consider the opportunity cost of using your money. Make the choice to be a manager of resources. Do not allow your life to be driven for “just one more dollar.”

How much is enough for me? I have clothes, food, shelter, and transportation which puts me in the top 1% of the world’s population. I guess that means that $6.90 is enough for me.
