life, there are many difficult decisions that need to
be made. Some of the choices are vital and serve as the
crux for determining life's path. One primary question
that people have to ask themselves is what they want to
do with their lives. The question is not only to determine
what they want to achieve, but also what they hope to
obtain through a career. There are numerous possibilities
and this decision can affect your life dramatically. Many
times the decision is whether to lead a life steered by
a hunt for riches or fulfillment through a job that provides
happiness. Some try to find a compromise that combines
these two objectives and seek careers that provide a fair
amount of compensation as well as a challenging, intellectually
stimulating and satisfying work environment.
our society, many are in a hasty dash for gold and their
lives are based upon the search for wealth and money.
The essential good of their existence is to become the
well-heeled aristocrats of our civilization. Other people
are motivated by other factors. The focal point of their
existence is a feeling of accomplishment in their jobs.
It's like being trapped between two magnetic fields each
repelling each other. All around our society you can see
people taking part in these two forces. It is everywhere.
not true in every case, we might look at some lawyers,
stockbrokers and CEO's as people who are out for money.
Many of these people set out to make money, be rich and
to support themselves in extreme comfort. Cash is the
key to their contentment and happiness. Fulfillment through
their jobs is of no importance, especially when compared
to cold hard cash. Such people are able to work long,
arduous, tedious days as long as an enormous paycheck
is at the end. Whether this is the life for you is a personal
question. It depends on your temperament and the kind
of person you are. If money and a wild lifestyle of luxury
cars and enormous houses are your major desires, then
go for it. These people argue that without making a good
living, you will not be able to support yourself and live
a comfortable, joyful life. This is what is important
to them and puts them in high spirits.
people envision lives guided by excitement and gratification
in their jobs, such as in teachers, musicians and artists.
These people are not motivated by money but yearn to achieve
happiness by doing what they adore this is what makes
them satisfied. To these people, money is not the most
important part of their lives. They are prepared to sacrifice
high pay for a job that is pleasurable and full of happiness.
If you are able to live with a less amount of money in
order to have fulfillment in your job, then this is for
you. People who choose this existence argue that life
is short and what's the point of living and sucking the
fun out of it. They maintain the point of continuing is
to be happy and to enjoy yourself by doing what they love,
basically saying what is the point of spending endless
hours doing work from which you don't get pleasure and
satisfaction. What is the point of only getting a job
for the simple fact of obtaining money? It's just an empty
Which choice is better? I think it is too broad and too
different a question to answer. Neither lifestyle can
be seen as the correct way of living. It really depends
on the individual and what is most suitable for them.
You cannot base your life on another's life and what others
think. It should be based upon what makes you happiest
and what you are searching for. My personal opinion is
that both points are good and you need a little bit of
both. It is important to have both money to support yourself
and contentment in your job to find happiness. So my advice
is to try to achieve both and seek a mixture of the two
lifestyles. If you can do this than you are truly fortunate
and will most likely enjoy your life. It is difficult
to do this and those who can obtain this ideal career
are the most fortunate people in the world.
