In 2010, Travie McCoy's track Billionaire soared to quantity three on the Billboard Scorching 100, sharing its aspirational lyrics, "I wanna be a billionaire so fricking unhealthy, purchase all of the issues I by no means had."
The track shares the dream of fame and fortune.
And, I feel on some stage we'd all prefer to expertise what that is perhaps like. We consider if we had that a lot cash lots of our issues can be solved. And admittedly, a few of them is perhaps, however not all …
I used to be watching an interview on tv someday with Oprah Winfrey and JK Rowling, writer of the Harry Potter books. Each of those ladies are billionaires with greater than sufficient cash to final a lifetime, but each admitted at occasions they concern shedding all of it. Each nonetheless work extraordinarily exhausting of their respective fields. The truth is, on the time of the interview, the ultimate Harry Potter film had simply pushed the franchise previous the $ 7 billion mark. Each ladies have been listed among the many richest self-made ladies on the planet by Forbes journal in 2011.
But each totally admitted they have been fearful.
Think about being a billionaire and never feeling like it’s sufficient.
We most likely can't think about it. As an alternative we attempt to think about what our lives can be like if we have been so fortunate to have that a lot cash. We'd be set for all times. We'd be financially free. Or, would we be?
As I've typically heard stated, cash simply magnifies what's already there.
If we're pushed and we work exhausting to show our price, or to make up for one thing inside us, that doesn't go away simply because we’ve got extra money. In my expertise, the extra money I made, the extra I felt like I needed to make, to maintain proving myself. Till I healed that concern inside me. Till I disconnected cash from my self price.
As people all of us nonetheless have our "stuff" to take care of. And whereas cash might have the power to unravel a few of our issues, it's definitely not a magic tablet. And, as we noticed with the tragic loss of life of Whitney Houston, generally cash and fame solely enlarge the issues and supply entry to methods of coping with them that in the end damage us.
Though we name it "chilly, exhausting money" there's nothing chilly about it.
Cash is an emotional substance. We give it energy. And in some methods by doing so, we let it take ours.
