Top 10 things that can not be bought with money

Top 10 things that can not be bought with money

Money, everyone needs money. Adults, teens and even children – even small children know this thing which we called money. Yeah, money important in life, without this thing we can’t meet our needs. Money makes some people can do many things which other people can’t. But although money is very important, there are still things that can not be bought with money.

1. Time
Money will not be able to return the time that has elapsed. After change of day, the 24 hours will be lost and will not likely be back again. Therefore use every opportunity to express your attention and affection to the person you love and you really love, before that time passes and you regret it.

2. Happiness
It sounds weird, but this is reality. Money can make you feel happy because you can pay for luxury holidays, give your laptop with a very modern facility, or modification of a racing car. But money can not bring a glimmer of happiness from the depths of our hearts.

3. Children’s happiness
To buy food and good clothes to our beloved children, we need money. But you can not use the money to give a sense of security, responsibility, good manners and intelligence on your child. All those things came from the fruit of your time and attention which you have devoted to them and the good things that you teach them. Money does help us meet the aspects of parenting, but time has prove that the basic needs of each child is the time which you give for parenting, not the person.

4. Love
Love can not be bought with money, admit it! It is true. Indeed, with the money we can get people interested, but love comes from mutual respect, caring, sharing experiences and opportunities to grow together. That’s why many couples who marry for money, do not survive long.

5. Acceptance
To be accepted by the neighborhood association, you do not need money. If you want to be accepted, focus your energy to make yourself valuable to the environment around by become a friend in joy and sorrow.

6. Health
We need money to finance the cost of care and buy medicine, but money can not replace lost health. That is why there is a saying: better to prevent than cure. Start exercising, stop smoking, and many other things that you must have known.

7. Success
Success only comes from hard work, willingness, and a little luck. There are minor aspects of the business to success that can be obtained with money, such as training or buying equipment, but the more success comes from doing your own business.

8. Talent
We are born with certain talents. With money, we can do is improve the talent, such as learning music. However, experts said, to become experts in their fields, we need talent.

9. Good attitude
There are a lot of rich people. But they’re rude and sarcastic. Just a few rich simple man with polite attitude and show respect to others. Thus, the amount of money owned by someone is not measure for their attitude or manner.

10. Peacefulness
If money could buy peace, maybe we no longer hear about the war. Precisely the opposite often happens, the money that was the source of conflict and hostility.
