The inconvenience of selling your soul

Climbing the corporate ladder to add more money to a bank account is a common practice in the society.

Not that it's bad, chances are when you tend to follow only the money, you'll stop listening to your heart.

The worst part?

You'll be a prisoner for long unless you muster the courage to break free and start being more humble.

This is how a lot of people get stuck in jobs they hate.

Money can't be the only reason why you choose to get up every morning and spend a great deal of your 24 hours working on something.

Never dare to sell your soul for money, because no amount of wealth would buy you an air conditioner in hell.
— Edmond Mbiaka

Yes, money can be a factor. The problem is, when it's the only factor, you start feeling burned out.

I just got off a call with a close friend who switched to a high paying job recently, only to find out a week later that we wanted to get out of that place. It was a mess.

If you really want to be happy in your life, you need to find a job that you love.

Let's face it, we spend most of our waking hours working on something. You're bound to feel depressed if you hate what you do for the most of the day, every single day.

Money is important but consider money only when you're sure that you'll be satisfied with the work that you're about to do.

Because, it's a peaceful mind that we aim to achieve at the end, not an extra pair digits in our bank balance.

Don't let money blindside you.

Your soul is what gives meaning to your existence, don't sell it to a stranger for a bag of cash.

You need an emergency fund

Don't tarnish your integrity
