Wealth & Success Part 1

in #busy5 years ago

"A great fortune in the hands of a fool is a great misfortune."
Anonymous

Wealth befalls the foolish and the wise, but only the wise are able to keep it. A person who lacks an understanding of money's consequences is like a child prince who inherits a kingdom: a slave to whims, easily manipulated, and quick to fall from power. To attain riches but lose it all is far more painful than never having riches at all.

If you currently lack wealth, consider it a temporary blessing. Use this time as your prequel. Pursue knowledge and wisdom so that when money enters your life, you are prepared to face its responsibilities.

Failures are lessons that are hard to forget. When you have little to lose, a misstep is merely an error; when you have much on the line, a mistake can cause your downfall.

"Nothing is enough for the man to whom enough is too little."
Epicurus

How many palaces must a person own to be happy? From afar, wealth may appear to be the answer to all of life's problems. In sickness, wealth can buy doctors. In fear, wealth can buy protection. Even in sadness, wealth can buy temporary comforts.

But wealth cannot buy happiness. Money is quicksand — a slow entrapment for those who do not escape soon enough. It is expensive to be rich. Your mansion must maintain staff. Your private jet must be housed in a hangar. As an obsession with wealth overtakes a person's life, soon money becomes the master and its owner becomes the servant.

Like an addiction, a little wealth always wants more. Seek worthy investments that promise greater returns over time. Appreciate what you have and you will never lose what you are given.
