Like everything else, money has a value, and money has a price. The value is what one gets out of it, and the price is what one has to do to get it.

The pertinent question is: Is the value of the money worth the price one is paying to get it? Some people undergo so much stress at work that they actually diminish the quality of their lives for the sake of accumulating material possessions.

Some people have all the money that their desired standard of living, financial security, and non-financial goals require; yet they continue to make more money. The value received for that money is no longer the same. Past a certain point, additional money has the same personal value as points in a video game.
