It’s Not How You Start
I am always impressed by the comments and actions of some people. They are so involved and tired; trapped in their own ways of life and without thinking about what they do to others. They may seem happy but deep down they are not because some might consider material gain as everything. If they have material possessions, then nothing else matters and they will do whatever they can to protect it. But I remember hearing this saying: "It's not the way you start, but how you finish, what counts". You can start with those things but end up losing them by your own selfish means. Or maybe you still have it but you feel empty inside, wondering why you are not happy when you have all the elements that you marked in your lists.
It's good to be rich, so you'll never have to worry about it. Pay off your debts and you can maintain a luxurious lifestyle, but it's not about that. Life is much more than material possessions. Many of you prosper by making money, me too, but I am not a slave to that; money does not work for me the other way around. Like most people, I want to live a prosperous life, but I do not boast of my gain nor do I boast of the latest BMW. Doing that will not develop my spirit, it will only make me look silly and trite. I have friends and family who boast about their material possessions but I do not pay attention to them.
I was raised by a wonderful mom who advised me to work for my achievements and not do negative things to get to the top. . When I was a teenager, there were girls around me, even in my family, who went out with drug dealers or with cash. They prospered and felt on top of the world, but when it was over, they could have understood that it was temporary. Fast life is not all that is believed and striving for your own achievement is better than getting it from someone else.
How you start does not matter how you finish. Look at your own way of life and see how you want it to be. Positive or negative, you can not have it both ways. People will recognize how you treat them and not the wealth you have or the car you drive …
