It's not. It's the second most important thing in the universe.

Intelligence and imagination is the first most important thing in the universe.
If we had those 2 things then we would easily earn money.

You can sell anything. You can start a business out of anywhere. You can land a job at NASA.
But none of them are available unless you have those 2 things.
Money will never buy you intelligence. Intelligence will buy you money.

I'm just starting this year so I still only earn like 2k a month from it. But it's increasing every month.

No. Talk to some of the anons here who actually have money. There is one on here I talked to in a skype chat for like a week and I just asked him about it. He was a good looking guy, worked out, made quite a lot of money(talking like several million) for his age(maybe 21) so you'd think this guy is like some 10/10 alpha unicorn that knows how everything works. He had high functioning autism and had a lot of problems with trusting people. He lives in his own house by himself and is for all intents and purposes, a total recluse. he has issues with trusting girls in personal relationships in relation to committing to them(pretty alpha desu). he was a sweet guy, a really smart one, but you could just tell that he had a hint of aspergers or something; a drizzling, a sprinkling, a dollop if you will.

that's a specific case, and the only reason he did any of what he did is, even he said, is from his autism giving him OCD characteristics, like a need to succeed or do well in whatever he bothers spending his time on, and eclectic interests and reasoning. he cared about time quite a lot. pretty ironic considering he has enough money to do whatever he wants yet just stays at his house all day grooming it.

just a weird guy. had a lot of money, yeah, but I don't think that he was happy. the guy could travel the world for the next twenty years living like a fucking king, and that fact doesn't really make him happy. the facts that he COULD do these things didn't make him happy. he was telling me about how people get all of these ideas for what they would do if they were rich, or this image in their mind of how their life would look if they JUST had money, but when you finally get that money, the people who would ever actually make it would never spend it on anything and that the image everyone gets in their mind of what they would do isn't logical at all.

Sure, if someone has issues before, money by itself isn't going to fix it. I should have explained it more specifically though; when I say "freedom" I don't mean do whatever the fuck you want, I'm talking more like "you have no obligations whatsoever". I hate having responsibilities, even more than that I hate being *required* to do anything. Pisses me off at the most basic level.

If I had enough money to be financially independent, I would only and exclusively do things I want to do, and nothing that I'm "required" to do. Number one on that list is work. I am opposed, at a fundamental level, to working for someone else, where they become wealthy off my labor. Hate that shit. Pisses me off. But along with that, the other "freedoms": I don't have to save up to buy anything (in case I turn into a consumer whore), I could just buy it. I don't have to worry about my "professional reputation" because fuck you, I already have my money. I don't have to give a shit about anything except what I want to do.

That's freedom. That's what I was talking about.

So you've never had to worry about money, but feel comfortable talking about it's importance. If you're born without any family money, you quickly learn that money is what is used to create and sustain family and health. But if you're born with money taken care of I guess you'd never learn that.

Sigh. Disregard what I say because I "dont know what it's like"

I've been around other rich kids my whole life. Wealth has separated them from their families. These kids treat their parents who spoil them like shit.

I also know many lower class kids and they obviously do not flash their Louis Vuitton bags and designer clothes. Usually they seem much more appreciative of family and friends.

When family is gone I am certain the wealthy will realize how over hyped money is.

You don't even compare to him at the current form you're in. I hope you learn as much as you can from him about making money and use all the opportunities he opened up for you that are not open to the general public.

Also the reason you don't have friends or girlfriend is not because you have money. It's because you're a douche bag.

I'm also autistic with OCD and have the same problems with trusting people (no friends) and an urge to succeed. The difference is that i live in a poor shithole and barely make enough money to survive (like 100 bucks a month atm).

That guy indeed HAS freedom in the sense that he IS free to do everything you have mentioned - travel, live like a king and so on, IF he just changes his mind. Even if he doesn't change his mind he still have this opportunity. Today he lives in his mansion, tomorrow he decides not to. It's the freedom of choice, which is out of reach for poor schmucks like me.

the facts that he COULD do these things didn't make him happy

"Happiness" is relative. Take all his money and put him in a cuckshed in the middle of nowhere, make him work 6 days a week just to make his ends meet and he will feel like shit, guaranteed. Give him his money back and bring him back to his palace and he will feel happy.

The guy was probably born with a silver spoon in his mouth and never had to break his bones to earn a living. These people are first to talk about "money isn't important" and other bullshit.

You both seem to be forgetting one important thing. You do everything in moderation. You do not only try and accomplish the #1 thing. And if you say "money is the most important" then that must mean you would be willing to sacrifice money over your dad, mother, brother, etc.

However, someone could value family the most and still make a good side income.

And also I think everyone here is not just fixated on the idea of having enough money to get by, most here are deep down thinking about millionaires and a stupid high net worth. Many would sacrifice that over family. And I am saying from first hand that all these accessories are so over rated. And I'm sure more people would agree at the end of the day.

Nope, it just solves *most* problems a normal person could have. Psychological issues have to be resolved with therapy or medication, and having money doesn't make much of a difference in the availability of treatment (unless you're extremely poor).

@King_Martha
The guy was probably born with a silver spoon in his mouth and never had to break his bones to earn a living.
This. People born with money, universally, don't have a true appreciation for how important it is. The same thing can be said for attractive women (even just average women, but especially the 8s, 9s, and 10s); since birth they have been showered with attention. Any time they go out in public, anything they do online, anything they post on instagram, literally every single thing they do they'll get an unreasonable amount of attention and praise. They just "have" attention because they're attractive, and they never have to go without.

It's the exact same causation for why rich kids are, 99 times out of 100, such fucking shitty people. They already "have" what others have to either 1) bust their asses for or 2) simply never get. I suppose the main difference is that women's looks fade in their 30s and then they go fucking crazy, but rich kids' money will probably keep growing.
