Money doesn't create man but it is the man who created money. Live your life as simple as you are. Don't do what others say, just listen to them, but do what you feel is good. Don't go on brand name; just wear those things in which u feel comfortable. Don't waste your money on unnecessary things; just spend on them who are really in need rather. After all it's your life then why give chance to others to rule our life."
