Your most important asset by far… is you. More specifically, your health! WIthout it, we can’t enjoy the simplest things in life, like enjoying good food, having fun outdoors, sightseeing overseas etc. However, that’s not the only reason why…
You can’t build wealth, without health.
There’s a very good reason why people prefer to invest their money into themselves. Now, I’m not talking about “using money to make more money”, that is an entirely different topic for another day.
What I’m referring to is the healthy ability for your mind and body to make decisions, to make money. Ironically, wealthy people seem to understand this best. If you dive deep into the habits of successful people, it always involves diet, exercises, enough sleep, meditation, and taking time out with friends and family.
There is a core reason why you never neglect your health, and chase for wealth. Which leads to the next point…
Wealth Cannot Make Your Happy.
As common and cliche as it sounds… it’s ultimately the truth.
Focusing on all the different aspects of health (physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual) has been shown to be much more beneficial to your happiness over the long run than a number in your bank account.
Think about it… Wouldn’t it be better to have everything right, rather than being a wreck emotionally?
Money Cannot Buy Health
If we don’t take care of our health today… it is difficult to get it back up if things go south.
While being in good health gives you the time, energy, and drive to make extra money… with few exceptions it doesn’t work the other way around. You can’t neglect your health over a 40 year career and then expect to get it back by throwing money at it.
And on the plus side… being healthy actually motivates you to make more money, and enjoy the wealth you have right now. To our eyes… this is a win-win situation.
