Is Desiring Massive Wealth Selfish?

Is Desiring Massive Wealth Selfish?


When it comes to monetary wealth, most (if not all) people would love to have the

freedom that money can bring, yet I often hear those same people put down

people who live an abundant lifestyle. Jealousy? Maybe, but I think it goes

deeper than that. Is desiring massive wealth really selfish?


How many times have you heard someone say something to the effect of

“I don’t need tons of money – just enough to live comfortably and get by”.

It is usually stated as if it is a positive thing – this person does not want to

take anything away from another person who may need the money more than they do.

Have you ever thought about that way of thinking as being SELFISH? Why do I say that?

Because that person is only thinking of HIM or HERSELF!


How much can you do for others if you only have enough for you to live

comfortably? If you make a million dollars a year, does that take away from another

person’s lifestyle? No, it doesn’t. They will live in the same way whether you have lots of

money or not.


We have an abundant universe – there is plenty for all. Of course, many people do

not live abundantly for way too many reasons to write about in this post.


However, if YOU create massive wealth in your life, you can certainly improve

the lot of many people. How joyful would it be to make a huge impact on the

lives of your loved ones and other people/causes you care about?


 Is desiring massive wealth selfish? Think of the

positive impact you can make in the world with a boatload of cash and then answer that question.
