The Right Way to View Wealth

1oz gold Coin
Paul Buchheit from Quora has an interesting perspective on wealth we can all learn from. He states that:

“Wealth removes constraints. Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing depends on the extent to which you needed those constraints. If you have a serious alcohol or other drug addiction, wealth could be fatal for you. In general, it makes people more of whatever they already were. If you’re an asshole, getting more money will probably make you more of an asshole. However, if you have purpose and meaning in your life that goes beyond chasing the golden carrot, money can give you the freedom to focus on the things that truly matter to you.”
