That is a great piece of wisdom to embrace. What I would add to that is this...I grew up in a family that was not wel-to-do, but definitely comfortable. We always took family vacations and there always plenty of food on the table and clothes on my back. My father was a bank Vice President and my mom was able to be a stay at home mom, which, back in the 50's and 60's meant going to bridge club and the country club on a regular basis. This all sounds like a dream lifestyle to grow up with. Well, I was instilled with the attitude somewhere along the way that "money was evil" and that by having money you were giving up being a nice person. I have been struggling with the instilled attitude most of my 57 years. I am just now able to realize that it is okay to have money and be happy. Money is great. There is nothing wrong with having money as long as it serves our higher purpose. My goal is to have all the money that I want and need to do the things that I have always wanted to do in my life....not just to buy new cars and homes, but to enable me to have the freedom to live my life without boundaries. For me that includes travel and learning. I never want to stop learning about our world, and I want to be able to help make this world a better place for everybody to live.
