Already with the title you should have start reminiscing on those crazy things you've done just for money, no doubt we do stuffs for various reason, somethings for passion, more times for love and much more times for money. Now most times these crazy things we do are wrong things, oh intact they are bad things but then we want the cash more. Don't we know these extra miles or short cuts we are taking to make a few bucks are wrong choices? Well of course we know, we aren't dumb, we can distinguish what's good from what's bad, so it's very clear to us.

However, whenever we think on the money involved, we get blinded by greed, what could possibly go wrong, I'll be lucky, just this one time, we often say, but it's rarely so. The little step you take opens a more tempting option for you, well if you can't overcome the urge to step into it in the first place, I doubt if you would easily overcome the urge to go deeper.

There's a popular slang saying the only thing better than money is "more money", well true, you can never have enough of it, the more you get the more you want more, people who are okay with theirs financial status are merely grateful and contented with that which they have, all the same they still yearn for more.

If money answers to all things or at least almost all things and we humans are burdened with wants and needs on a daily basis, such that money would go a long way to seeing them solved, I guess that alone is enough justification that money should be sorted after. Waking up early and returning to rest late at night only to start again at daybreak is the routine we mostly see around the world, everyone is actively pursuing after money, therefore some have resulted into seeking another way out, another means to an end.

So many wrong decisions we make in our quest to get money. Let's discuss a few that comes to mind.

1. Gambling :

Well its our money and at such we choose how to spend it, moreover we aren't stealing or hurting someone in the process, we are simply staking our money in bets we see possibly, already there are legal platforms that allows us bet as well as few people have been lucky to win a life changing game. However this facts aforementioned, it doesn't shift away the adverse effects of such acts. One area we often battle with is its addiction and it's tempting offer.

We must know that the platforms organized for people to place bets on weren't established because they want to make you rich, no they were established because they hope you'll keep losing your money to them, which of course is a better probability, good business is not staking capital on probability. Many have thrown away good money because they believe Madrid would beat Chelsea, which is not going to happen, LOL. Some have starve both themselves and their family not because they didn't have the money, rather because they used the money to stake hoping on a jackpot.

Gambling is an act that is better avoided than seeking solution afterwards, it's a two way system, you don't want to climb a ladder blindly, you wouldn't know when to stop climbing. Get a plan to work with, and for those who are really hoping on luck as they are actively looking for ways to raise a capital, are advice to curtailed it to the barest minimum, weekly. Its your money but be sure you're not blindly throwing it away.

2. Crime

Yes, this is often the last resort for someone who is hellbent on getting money at any cost, crime covers all areas you can think off, you won't be arrested for gambling but be sure to face the law if found wanting of crimes. The forceful collection of someone else's belongings be it money or material possession, as long as it isn't yours and you used force to get it, then you've committed an offense. As much as there are grade to this and someone might say well mine isn't that bad, moreover I don't kill or if I were to be caught I won't be jailed for so long, isn't enough reason to keep going.

Such actions that are tagged crime usually involves a victim and to this you have hurt that person. You can say sorry or return the material but you can never return the effect and trauma you might have caused along the way. Life is centered around sowing and reaping, so planting bad is definitely a wrong decision, it finds its way around bouncing back and harder. Beware!

3. prostitution

More among the ladies but not limited to the ladies alone, this act of giving out ones body for money is bad, so much is at stake here, standing a chance to ruin ones life totally, the constant abortions can lead to womb damage that when ready to settle down to Start a family there isn't much to look out for. Already its clear they stand a higher chance of contacting a bad virus that would totally destroy the body if not well curtailed, all these as well as the social image that's diminishing, its totally wrong to indulge in this act.

Its not until you're outside and standing along the way that makes you a prostitute, many young boys and girls today have multiple partners they sleep with just for the benefits attached, I don't know how else we can define that act. Not based on love and affection, just for the benefits plus multiple partners, well I see no difference. This actions is bad, seeking money shouldn't lead us deep to start considering this option, our lives owe more values and at such we must guard it well.

4. Betrayal

I guess Judas Iscariot should come to mind, well not him alone, so many are guilty of this act too, so many have betrayed the trust and relationship because they seek to get a little buck. If you dislike a friend, then its best you leave them alone rather than hurt them so bad. Well the clause here is "should they be doing bad, and you're being interrogated, if you cover up then you too can be charged with such crime, so its advisable you give the needed information to the authorities". However in matters that has been confided in you to preserve and not illegal, then exposing it to the enemy who can use such information to do evil just for a few cash is bad.

Many have sent thieves to go steal from their friend, since he know he has a good sum of money at home, some have bad mouthed their friends among people who wants to help him or her, so they won't get it, brothers have betrayed brothers for money, the world is turning upside down with everyone tumbling just because we are all actively searching to get money at all cost. This shouldn't be so.

So What's The Way Out?

Rather let's get a plan we can work with, a plan that has good written all over it, follow up with hope and prayers and let's see God help us. Of course money is good, it isn't the root of all evil, but the love ( a must acquire) for it, is the root cause of all evil. Let's be guided and vigilant, it's truly isn't easy but its achievable to stay on the good lane and earn decently, let's keep pushing right, God is the best rewarder.

Money makes the world, I don't know but people will do crazy things for money, money can make you do things maybe bad or good it doesn't matter as long as you will gain money from it. People are blinded when it comes to money, not all people.

Money was created as a medium of communication in the world but it rather enslaved the whole world in it's grip.. we should never let it control us, it should hear what we say rather we act according to desires :)

Instead of us to use our money wisely or be patient by only engaging in the right way to earn them, we find ourselves working towards illegal means just to make the money. The truth is that we would regret later if we don't call ourselves to order.

Let's not involve in crazy things just to make money.
