What are your aspirations? What do you want to achieve in life? If you say a nice car, a good job, a big house and a rich investment portfolio that’s okay. Those things go to our security and personal security is one of the primary instincts of all animals.
So, by all means, let us work and improve our material lives. However, for some, this will not be enough. History is replete with examples of people with great wealth and power who lived in fear every moment of their lives.
How many people have lived their lives and as they saw the end coming asked: “is this all there is”? Do you think a dying man thinks about his bank account? No, he thinks about how his life could have been better. Where could he have been kinder, more generous and more compassionate.
Like the saying goes: “It doesn’t cost anything to be a nice person”.
