Money is an interesting profit that causes anxiety, as well as happiness. We must explore different things in our lives that mold the perspective we have towards money. No matter how much money one makes, that is no excuse to be financially successful in one’s life. We must understand and know ourselves, know what satisfies, our goals and expectations.

El dinero es una ganancia interesante ya que puede causar ansiedad, y al misma vez, felicidad. Debemos explorar diferentes cosas mediante nuestras vidas que ayuden a moldear nuestra perspectiva sobre el dinero. La cantidad de dinero que una persona se gana no debe ser excusa para medir su éxito en la vida. Debemos entendernos, conocer los que nos satisface, nuestras metas y nuestras expectativas.
