So..........You Wanna Be Wealthy?
I guess that's kind of a silly question, isn't it? Of course you want to be wealthy. That's why we're all here, isn't it?
But what does it really mean to be wealthy?
Big house, new car, all your bills paid, boat loads of money.
Does all this really make you wealthy?
What does being wealthy mean to you?
I recently had the pleasure of reading an article about one of the wealthiest men on the planet, and what True Wealth meant to him.
The man is Steve Jobs. Co-founder of Apple. He passed away at the age of 56 from pancreatic cancer.
His net worth at the end was $7 Billion.
You can read his full bio here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Jobs
The article was huge eye opener for me, and I hope you get as much value from it as I did.
Here is what Steve Jobs had to say about wealth:
“In other eyes, my life is the essence of success, but aside from work, I have a little joy. And in the end, wealth is just a fact of life to which I am accustomed.”
“At this moment, lying on the bed, sick and remembering all my life, I realize that all my recognition and wealth that I have is meaningless in the face of imminent death. You can hire someone to drive a car for you, make money for you – but you can not rent someone to carry the disease for you. One can find material things, but there is one thing that can not be found when it is lost – “LIFE”.
Treat yourself well, and cherish others. As we get older we are smarter, and we slowly realize that the watch is worth $30 or $300 – both of which show the same time. Whether we carry a purse worth $30 or $300 – the amount of money in the wallets are the same. Whether we drive a car worth $150,000, or a car worth $30,000 – the road and distance are the same, we reach the same destination. If we drink a bottle worth $300 or wine worth $10 – the “stroller” will be the same. If the house we live in is 300 square meters, or 3000 square meters – the loneliness is the same.”
“Your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world. Whether you’re flying first class, or economy class – if the plane crashes, you crash with it.”
The article was written by a young lady by the name of Brittany Johnson. Someone I follow on social media. And for good reason.
She goes on to say, and I quote:
“So, I hope you understand that when you have friends or someone to talk to – this is true happiness!
Five Undeniable Facts:
1?] Do not educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be happy. – So when they grow up they will know the value of things, not the price.
2?] Eat your food as medicine, otherwise you will need to eat your medicine as food.
3?] Whoever loves you will never leave you, even if he has 100 reasons to give up. He will always find one reason to hold on.
4?] There is a big difference between being human and human being.
5?] If you want to go fast – go alone! But if you want to go far – go together.
And in conclusion...
The six best doctors in the world
Keep them in all stages of life and enjoy a healthy life.
Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.
Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends...
Treat yourself well. Cherish others.
“Love the people God sent you, one day He’ll need them back.”
This is why it's so important to focus on your health rather than your wealth, Because health is the real Wealth.”
So, I ask again, what does being wealthy mean to you?
In my opinion.....
Make new friends every day.
Give of yourself, even when you feel you have nothing to give.
Who knows? Maybe someday you'll change the world.
Just a thought...
Short lesson here is this:
Make new friends through recruiting.
Give advise, incentives, or whatever you're comfortable with.
Both of these actions will make you money.
But you need to be healthy and happy in order to succeed.
Be good to yourself.
