Money is a sword

by Hopeless Bromantic 9 replies
This is actually one of my favorite metaphors for money.

When a skilled warrior (pun intended) picks up a sword, he or she becomes much more powerful. A warrior on the dark path can do as much evil as a noble warrior can do good. The sword can be used to destroy or to protect, depending on the person who holds it. But if you place the sword in the hands of an infant, he won't be able to lift it off the ground to do either. (The other important part of this metaphor is that even a perfect sword can't cut through every problem you might ever face.)

      I believe in this quote too. With money you can do almost everything! Money is the number one key to happiness. No one is meant to be sick and poor

      • A sword can't cut through everything, remember.

        A girlfriend who likes you for your money is going to dump you as soon as she lands a man with more money. Also, money can make you healthier only up to a point. Some illnesses kill billionaires as effectively as they kill the poor.

        Finally, in addition to money, you also need the skill to manage money, or it will all slip through your fingers. It's the same metaphor: a sword without the skill to handle it is useless.

          Money is temporary, it will not last you forever. Many people have faith in their money thinking that it is everything, money is part of life but not everything.
          I think we need to learn how to handle money, many people want to make money, but they are not ready to handle it.

          Thanks for your share..

    Money can be viewed as a tool, a resource or simply a result.
    If it is a tool or weapon, then seek to learn and practice it, to achieve optimum results.

  • True, money can do so many things in our life. It can be a good one or a bad one it depends on the person how he/she uses the money. Money can make or break a person. If a person doesn't know how to use it it will not bring him no where but if you have a good heart and intention you will prosper more in life.

    • Do you know what one of the top reasons is that people in this world are unhappy?

      So many of them have become so engrossed in making money that they have forgotten what they wanted the money for.

    Indeed, money is a very powerful weapon. It depends upon how we use it since it can inflict damage to the person holding the weapon.

      I agree with you my dear friend.

      Money is a weapon that can destroy or help you. It depends on how you use it.

      Thanks for your comments.
