I see so many people struggle to make money and then throw it all away in a vain attempt to please the crowd. I know many people who are obscenely wealthy yet unusually worried, anxious and downright miserable. Early on in my life, I picked up a powerful lesson from one of my mentors, Jim Rohn on what the ultimate expression in life really is and what it’s not.
The ultimate expression of life is not a fat paycheck. The ultimate expression of life is not driving a Mercedes G-Wagon. The ultimate expression of life is not having a fat bank account or a home in Maitama or Banana Island.
If a father walks out of the house and he can still feel his daughter’s kiss on his face all day, he’s a powerful man.
If a husband walks out of the house and he can still feel the imprint of his wife’s arms around his body, he’s invincible all day.
If you have a trusted friend who you can trust to take care of your family if ever you’re sent to jail or die in an accident, you feel insured.
If every night you go to bed and can feel the warmth of gratitude from those who you’ve helped in one way or another through the course of your day, you feel fulfilled.
It’s the special stuff with your inner circle that makes you strong and powerful and influential. The ultimate expression always comes from within not from the outside. Set your priorities right and make your life a blockbuster.
