In order to earn a living people have to work and earn money. However, earning money is not the only reason that people need to work. There are some other reasons why people work such as contributing something to society, joining a social environment, and a sense of accomplishment.
First of all, people can contribute beneficial things to society by working. People desire to do something meaningful to humanity. We live not just to make fortune, live in elegant houses, buy a good car, dress with beautiful clothes and etc. These things are important for us, but when people contribute something to society which is beneficial they feel themselves very happy and this feeling overweighs all of those things. For example, while teachers educate students, their success is more valuable than money for their teacher. Well-being of patient is worthy than money to doctors. We can add lots of things like that to the list. In briefly, happiness which le obtain by contributing something to society is much more valuable and meaningful than money.
Secondly, without friends all of us feel ourselves lonely. So, we need a social environment if we want to cope with loneliness. Some people attend various clubs to find friends some people go to school to make good friendship, while some others find their close friends from work places. In order to get rid of work stress we can do special activities with our colleagues. For example, after the work people can go to the cinema with their work friends or can go to the picnic at the weekends. Making good relationship is more worthy than earning money.
Finally, accomplishment is a desire for people. People want to be successful during their lifespan. There were lots of scientists such as Albert Einstein, Galilee Galileo, Tomas Edison which follow their desires. Although they made a breakthrough to history of mankind they didn’t earn much money, because their aim was being successful persor: and they preferred contributing something to society rather than earning much money. If they had wanted to earn much money, they would have done it. But, they never thought about money. Because accomplishing something is more valuable than money.
In conclusion, unlike some people’s thought, money is not everything in our life. There are lots of things that are much more precious than money as I mentioned above.
