Money And Mind



Money and​ Mind
It is​ hard to​ make money .​

it​ some countries,​ it​ is​ not unusual for people to​ have second,​ third,​ and​ even fourth jobs .​

Everywhere we​ go,​ we​ can see that the​ average paycheck just cannot meet the​ rise in​ inflation .​

it​ does not matter if​ ​ your a​ man or​ a​ woman,​ single or​ married one thing is​ for sure youve got bills to​ pay .​

Every month,​ almost everybody needs to​ set aside some cash to​ settle the​ electricity and​ water bills,​ apartment rental,​ car loan,​ student loan,​ cable t.v .​

bills,​ telephone bills,​ school tuition for the​ kids,​ the​ daily parking ticket,​ groceries,​ and​ the​ list goes on​ .​


No wonder,​ most are are trying to​ find new ways of​ making money .​

Not just to​ pay the​ bills,​ but so that they can have more money to​ buy things .​

Most people think that they are not making enough money to​ support their family .​

So after eight or​ nine hours at​ ​ the​ office,​ they immediately rush to​ the​ next job or​ to​ a​ parttime business so that they can make ends meet,​ and​ hopefully,​ earn a​ few dollars more.
There are also people who still believe and​ run after the​ American Dream a​ nice home in​ the​ suburbs.. .​

having two to​ three children that study in​ good private schools.. .​

a​ lasting marriage.. .​

a​ wife who does not need to​ work but can work if​ ​ the​ kids gets older.. .​

a​ family station wagon for the​ weekends,​ and​ a​ dog .​

In their pursuit of​ the​ dream,​ the​ constant struggle they face is​ still about making enough money.
Then again,​ there are individuals who work hard and​ earn money not just for their own pleasure and​ satisfaction,​ but also to​ compete with their neighbors .​

Keeping up with the​ Joneses has become their motto,​ motivation,​ and​ fear,​ all at​ ​ the​ same time .​

They are always anxious about looking the​ part,​ or​ about fitting in,​ and​ of​ course,​ in​ being welcomed within a​ group that is​ considered welloff,​ elite,​ or​ privileged .​

Perhaps more that their desire to​ have money,​ they are driven by their need for a​ high social status.
Status anxiety is​ the​ emotional disturbance felt by people who desire to​ climb the​ social ladder and​ an​ exaggerated fear or​ focus on​ how they are perceived by others .​

Status anxiety is​ the​ feeling of​ discontent or​ insecurity of​ a​ person in​ terms of​ his or​ her economic standing or​ place in​ the​ social pecking order .​


Climbing up the​ social ladder can be hard,​ especially if​ ​ one cannot climb at​ ​ all .​

it​ is​ impossible to​ reach a​ certain higher status without having faults,​ problems,​ and​ what we​ call bumps along the​ roads .​

In dealing with status anxiety,​ it​ somehow gives an​ idea of​ people to​ climb the​ social ladder and​ experience the​ anxieties that come from a​ focus on​ how one is​ perceived by others.
A lot of​ factors can cause a​ person to​ have status anxiety .​

High expectations,​ snobbery,​ lack of​ selfesteem,​ and​ materialism can lead to​ status anxiety .​

the​ everincreasing demands from the​ family.. .​

having a​ feeling of​ always being the​ outsider in​ an​ exclusive group.. .​

and being looked down upon by others who see themselves as​ social and​ economic superiors these can trigger status anxiety .​

Being overly dependent on​ the​ approval of​ others is​ also a​ cause of​ anxiety .​

the​ lack of​ selfesteem makes a​ person depend on​ others in​ order to​ have a​ sense of​ approval,​ worth,​ and​ accomplishment .​


Coping with anxiety takes having an​ intimate knowledge of​ ones strengths and​ weaknesses .​

it​ is​ important to​ know ones limits in​ terms of​ finances and​ social standing .​

Coping with anxiety is​ all about believing in​ the​ value of​ ones self and​ the​ value of​ others around you and​ how every one needs another person to​ live a​ healthy,​ happy,​ and​ fulfilling life.
