Money touches so many aspects of our lives. It influences our lifestyle, decisions, and emotions. Our relationship with money evokes a gamut of emotions including stress, greed, shame, eagerness, happiness, and joy. Depending on our season of life, money plays a role in our leisure activities, family planning, quality of life, access to resources, and even social standing. Whether we realize it or not, money acts in the background of life, greatly affecting our emotional health and well-being.

No certainty that the risks we take will be validated by quantifiable, tangible success in the way we initially defined it.
