The ESPN documentary “Broke” explains that players made bad investments and made payments to relatives and friends only to see their money quickly disappear (“NFL Salaries”). An example of child support causing a professional athlete to go broke is that Travis Henry, a NFL player, spends $170,000 yearly on child support for nine children (“Why NFL Players Really Go Bankrupt”). This amount of money spent on child support, can put a significant hole in even the richest person’s pocket. Aside from child support, some athletes are left to the debt of divorce. Divorce puts a strain on individuals because not only do they have to give their spouse part of their belongings, but, they are also left with paying all of the legal fees ( “5 Reasons Why”).

The form of greed Paul shows us is greed caused by his endless desperation for more money because he believed that if he had a lot of money, his mother would finally love him. Greed is commonly associated with selfishness the common idea of a greedy person is selfish. Paul shows us that greed can exist where selfishness does not. His actions have nothing to do with self gain but yet still demonstrate a form of greed which was rather unconventional. However, the events of the story demonstrate that even such a type of unselfish greed can be self harming as his desperation for more money resulted in his death, even if none of it was for himself.
According to Marianne van den Bree (2009) 58% of respondents to research she carried out claimed to have been abused during their childhood. This research suggests that to those that have been subjected to emotional, sexual and physical abuse are more likely to end up homeless. Many ex-service personnel find it hard to adjust to civilian life and some leave the forces with psychological disorders, such as post traumatic stress disorder.

― Lao Tzu Life is never complex; it is as simple as it should be nonetheless it is always us who made unnecessary changes to it for our so-called greater benefits, but generally which grow to be our greatest regrets later. Holding to waves of anger, showing impatience and running out of the compassion become a part of our life now. Simplicity is way behind us, we never dream of it. A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving. ― Lao Tzu Will it be possible to make a plan for life?
“The love of money is the root of all evil.” The pardoner does not want to save people from sin, but to gain money from the people. He is all about himself, as long as he has food, shelter, and a girl in every town he is all good. He could care less about the words he preaches to others and how others live. His main goal is basically to gain much money as he can off others with less effort at all. The best way to describe him is an imposter who makes his living by fooling people into thinking he forgives their sins, and in exchange for gifts, and he takes their money.
Young men in relationships are never satisfied with the one girl that they have. They tend to act like they just need more than what they have but don’t realize how messed up that is. Men never want to admit what they did was wrong, instead they try to pass the blame as it states in this article “Sometimes cheating men tell me, and the women they love, that their behavior doesn’t really count as cheating… Other times, they find ways to blame others for their choices – their spouse, their boss, even the other woman.”(Weiss). Some people don’t realize that some men don’t have enough maturity to be in a relationship. This article also states “He might think of his commitment to monogamy as a jacket that he can put on or take off as he pleases, depending on the circumstances.”(Weiss).
Why, you may ask? Well, for the first part, when one gets a hold of a plethora of money, then they leave all of their friends behind, believing that they are better than them. Then, however, the “friends” that they may think that they have formed after gaining the money, are fake, and only want to be their friends because of their money, or would never talk to the person with the newly acquired money in the first place. Overall, money brings you a lot of misfortune in life, so much so that you may want to end your life completely. Another example is from an article from www.cnn.com titled “Winning the Lottery: Does it Guarantee Happiness?” It describes a woman who won her state lottery with a winning of five million dollars.
Where he discovers his selfishness and where it started. Scrooge continued his obsession through gain through the pursuit of his money (Yellow 3). Scrooge becomes more bitter and cold hearted because he isn’t capable to control people that is in his life nor is he able to control what happens to those people.

The way I see it is there is always work to be done, just because I might of reached the goals I’m aiming for, doesn’t mean that’s all for me to do, someone else is working for the same goals as me.
