I think this quote means that Focusing on making a buck is you may think of yourself as a King or something and it will leave you with nothing yet. You may have high ambitions but they may go down to low ambitions. I think this is a great quote by Barack Obama.

When all you do is focus on gaining money, without noticing it you can lose family, friends and the real person in you. Like when it is said that money isnt happiness, and it isnt everything in life. I agree with this quote, because a person can work hard to get money but so they could either sustain their family or themselves, but when you see money coming to you easily, then thats when it comes to be an ambition in where you dont care about anything but getting money.

Well I think that this means that you shouldnt focus on making money all your life because it shows that you have no other ambitions. And in that way you are poor, in poverty. It will leave you unfulfilled because since you have lived your life only for making money you never accomplished anything else in your life.

I think this means that if you focus on only making a buck then you will just be thinking about you and making money and you will forget about the people you love.

I think this quote means that You should not get a job just because the pay is good, but you should get a job in the field you like. If you don't then you will be miserable in the long run and you will just be unhappy.

its cool to make big bucks aned everything but not when you do it to the max and start going to far with it like hurting u or people around u...may be physically or mentally but either way... when you take it to far...money doesnt make u happy if you dont have a family or friends...money isnt everything

I think this quote is saying that if you are focusing on a buck it will leave you with nothing because your just being selfish because you think your a dictator...and you have to earn money not just take it in a negative way...some people get killed or they can't get out of these things... the real hustle is working.But i guess (at that last part) lol.

i think that Barak Obama is trying to say that devoting your life to make money shows that you're poor and you're just trying to make some quick change, it will leave you unfulfilled becuase you haven't really accomplished anything because all you did was get some quick change....

If you just think have time to do is make money then you will not have time to spend enjoying life. Your life will be empty if you don't have any ambitions.

This quote means that you shouldn't just do pure work your entire life because you will have an uneasy way of life...you will stressed over work and you will have an ulcer. you should at least live your life and do the work one step at a time. but don't procrastinate.

-i think this means that if you get a job that you get paid alot, and the only reason you got it is for the money, then you're never really going to be happy unless you have a job that makes you happy, no matter what the pay is.

what i think this means is that if you are focusing on making money and only money,you dont notice that everything else around you is going farther and farther from you because you're not paying attention to anything else but money,and you might also lose your family and friends too.

I think that this means if you don't try to aim for high for the kind of carreer you want to got then you won't get anything achieved by aiming for something low. And then you will feel that you haven't achieved anything life.

i think it means that money isnt alway everything..i mean ourse u need money to buy food and what-so-ever but money cant buy the qualities in life..the word ''unfullfilled'' means that u r not going to be filled in side...materials in life arent everything...i mean when u die u arent going to take and materials....ur just taking ur soul..wat better soul that has many qualities like love.peace.courage,etc?

I think that this qoute means that you shouldn't focus on making money when you have other things like kids and family and or a wife you love or care about. or friends that you may bllow off just cause of your job. you need to prioritize who you need to spend time with or else your main priority will be making money and not your children.

what this quote means to me is that if you just want money or like your goal in life in to make all of this money...what will you do when you lose it all or spend it all? all your life its all about the money. what other goals will you have and if you lose all your money what will your backup plan?? so i think he is saying that have more than one goals or like a backup plan.

I think when you only think about making money you will lose everthing and have nothing left and you will leave your dreams unfufilled because you only think of money and you wont gain anything from money.

I think that this is true because when you’re ambitious and your willing to do anything for what you want. And when you focus on things you want then on things you need you turn against what you believe and that turns you ugly!!!!!

i think this means that u just focus on making money shows u have ambition and u don't know when to stop eventually that ambition will lead u to lose close friends and family cuz u wont even care bout them anymore just about money and thats not good cuz the more ambitious u get the more greedy u get and eventually u will be left with nobody but ur money and u will be unfufuilled and u will feel like a part of u is missing

i think this quote means if u get too caught up in making money u get ambitious and u want to have everything and by then nothing makes u happy but having more and more money and aint good 4 u and u start to be mean and selfish , nothing pleases u and u get on everones nerves and then whenu relize all this its too late all the people that loved u or cared about u are not by ur side

Blogger RAZIELCORREA said...

well i think this quote means that if you focus only on making money you have no othger achivements you want to fullfill like personal or academic. it will leave you unfufilled because there might be other goals you might have achived that getting money all the time. so if your only ambition is geting money then you are a person with very few options in life.

ACCORDING 2 THIS QUOTE I THINK THAT THIS SIMPLY MEANS that Focusing on making a buck is you may think of yourself as a King or something and it will leave you with nothing yet. You may have high ambitions but they may go down to low ambitions. ALSO, THAT JUST BY FOCUSING ON A BACK IS NOT WORTH IT

i think this quote means that when u get money esily u get used to always having money easily and u never learn how to mak eur own money but when da day comes when u dont get money easliy den u will lose all ur money because u wasted it all and now u dont know how to make enymore.take for instance paris hilton her parents give her all da money and she doesnt have to do enything she just gets money and it juss keeps coming but what if her parents where to looses everything then she wouldnt kno wut to so with hersefl shewoldnt kno what to do because she wouldnt be used ot lookin for jobs and i doubt sh ewould like to work.

well i think this quote is trying to say Like you shouldn't focus only on making money but think about other stuff. that will show little about yourself. poeple won't look at you as accomplishing something great in life but as being someone greedy thinking only about yourself . and as a product it will leave you unfulfilled because you only focused on one thing leaving onther things (that you could have done if you had not focused your mind only making money) unreached and unaccomplished
