“On the soft bed of luxury many kingdoms have expired.”
— Andrew Young, US Ambassador to the United Nations
The taste of wealth is a sweet poison. It pulls a person deep into its vortex, enticing them with promises of comfort and ease. What purpose does work serve when a person has enough to never work again? Why strive for anything when you have everything?
But as time goes on, “everything” begins to feel like nothing. A life lacking purpose is a life lacking direction. Palaces and planes cannot fill the void of an aimlessly wandering soul.
When wealth enters your life, resist the temptations of luxury. Use money as a tool to achieve greater things and to bring positive changes to the lives around you. Wealth is never the finish line but merely another step in life’s journey
“Lions don’t lose sleep over the opinions of sheep.”
The life of a sheep is easier than the life of a lion. Sheep are given food and water freely by their shepherd, and are protected from predators by shelters they did not build.
But these comforts bind the sheep into slavery. The sheep are bred to be weaker of mind and body, to require the shepherd’s protection so greatly that they can be free of physical chains but never stray. Theirs is a lifetime of servitude — one that is comfortable but ends at the shepherd’s whim.
Lions have no masters. Though the lion must hunt for its own food and search for its own shelter, it is free to roam where it wishes and requires no one to open its gate. Though the feeding trough of the sheep is filled, it is only with the grass and grain of its master's choosing. A lion must hunt and chase its meals, but feasts on anything it catches.
Wealth and power never come to those who simply wait for them to arrive
Wealth vs Health
Wealth is not simply a means of personal enrichment. Instead, money is a tool that can be used to fulfill each person’s duty to the advancement of the human species.
