You are not rich until you have things money can’t buy. You may be a millionaire or a billionaire yet, you can’t afford something with your money and sometimes you have to rely on someone who is not as rich or as wealthy as you are to solve some of your problems. It also depends on how you measure wealth. You may be wealthy and still be poor. You may be rich and still be poor.
A friend and brother to a billionaire bragged to me sometimes in February 2021 that money can do anything and everything, money can buy everything and take care of everything. He went on to brag about his billionaire brother and friend that he can do everything and anything with his money.
He can deal with anyone. I hate to argue with people who worship material wealth and mere mortals just because they are privilege to have money or material things in abundance at the moment. And I have zero tolerance for people whose money and power INTOXICATE.
People who feel they can intimidate or humiliate others who may not be as privileged as they are today with their money or power. I am one person who doesn’t see people or treat people differently, no matter your social or financial status. I left the boastful man with my last words that with the billions, there are things he would have to get through grace, mercy, favour, and unconditional love and support from even a very underprivileged person that his billions and powers cannot buy or influence.
There’re doors and favours with all the billions, only an “ordinary person” without a dime can give and open to the very wealthy person or rich person.
No, we can not buy everything with money. Money can prove to be useless sometimes. Money does make us happier – but only up to a certain point.
With money, you can buy a house but not a home.
With money, you can buy a clock or the most expensive wristwatches, but not time.
With money, you can buy the best designer bed or the most expensive bedroom set, but not sleep.
With money, you can buy the best drinks, food and even hire the best cooks, but not appetite.
With money, you can build the most expensive hospital, equip it, or even fly to the best hospital in the world, buy or pay for the best doctors or physicians, but not good health.
With money, you can have the best insurance policies, but not safety.
With money, you can be powerful, influential, yet can’t buy your way in some cases where integrity, credibility, or even simple and honest recommendations will get you in.
In all honesty my dear, there’re things you cannot buy with material wealth. Money can’t give you life or peace. There’re a lot of people who are ready to exchange money for freedom, good health, true love, happiness, peace of mind at this time, but it is not possible.
I have seen billionaires who don’t sleep at night without pills and some who are on the verge of running away leaving their mansions to another place for safety and the fear of being killed, yet their safety may not even be guaranteed anywhere in the world they run to, but an ordinary person can solve their problems without money.
I don’t care how much money you have; there are some things which no amount of money can buy.
