I picked money because my goal in life is to be financially successful so I dont have to work a normal job 9 to 5 and not contorl my own schedule. The true motive would be because I want to spend my time alive with my friends and family and god willing one day children, on vacation and doing fun things without the concept of money trouble for our day to day needs.
The only way I can achieve that level of freedom though is via money. I need enough to make it work for me, instead of me working for it. I want to retire by 30 and have children.
