If you become wealthy, that means you have a lot of money. Great- but at what cost?
-Did you burn bridges with family or friends over the years?
-Did you become extremely overweight because you didn't eat right or exercise?
If not, that's awesome- but many people do suffer from these things while chasing wealth.
Meanwhile- being rich in my opinion involves 3 things-
-Family and friends
Just about everyone agrees that they best times in their lives occur with family and friends. Weddings, child births, holidays- these are the times you usually remember forever.
As far as health goes- it doesn't matter if you have a bajillion dollars in the bank. If you are so out of shape or sick that you can't enjoy it, who cares?
Freedom comes from having enough money to quit your day job. It doesnt mean that you never have to work again, but it does mean you can do the work you love.
So what are you chasing after? To be rich, or just to be wealthy?
