We’ve all pondered this question many times in our life.

We’ve all considered the amount of money we need to “ride off into the sunset”.

We’ve all dreamed. 

But are we being honest with ourselves about the dream? If a bucket of money, significant enough, plopped in front of us. What would we really do?

Sitting with this question might be one of the hardest of all because it brings up another question. 

Do we have a purpose in life that drives us forward? 

Maybe it is sailing the Caribbean or golfing every day but at some point that gets mundane and boring.

Something else has to drive us forward. 

Money doesn’t buy happiness but it can help buy us the freedom to pursue our purpose in life even more. 

The big question then is does money control our choices or do we have control over it?
