Live longer or live richer? Which do you prefer?
This morning, I bumped into a piece of reflection on FB. I’m borrowing it and reposting here for it can offer value to thinking about how we live our lives.
Here it is below the entire reflection piece … plus it’s whole array of Health advice!:
When we die, our money remains in the bank… Yet, when we are alive, we don’t have enough money to spend.
In reality, when we are gone, there is still a lot of money not spent.
A business tycoon in China passed away. His widow, left with $1.9 billion in the bank, married his chauffeur.
His chauffeur said:- “All the while, I thought I was working for my boss… it is only now, that I realize that my boss was all the time, working for me !!!
The cruel reality is: It is more important to live longer than to have more wealth.
So, we must strive to have a strong and healthy body, It really doesn’t matter who is working for who.
In a high end hand phone, 70% of the functions are useless!
For an expensive car, 70% of the speed and gadgets are not needed.
If you own a luxurious villa or mansion, 70% of the space is usually not used or occupied.
How about your wardrobes of clothes?
70% of them are not worn!
A whole life of work and earning… 70% is for other people to spend.
So, we must protect and make full use of our 30%.
