Did They Say That? Don’t Make Money Your Goal

“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.”

Maya Angelou

What a great quote and some great advice. Money should never be your goal. Money is motivating but there is a higher purpose for our lives. I don’t think that it’s necessarily wrong to be motivated by money as long as the ultimate motivation is that you want to help someone with it. So the real motivation is to change lives through giving. Giving to God. Giving to the poor. Giving to the church. Giving to change generations. Giving to change your family tree.

Is money your motivation? Are you really doing what you love? Examine your ultimate goals in life.
