“They deem me mad because I will not sell my days for gold, and I deem them mad because they think my days have a price.” ~ Kahlil Gibran
Be purpose focused, instead of money focused. Don’t do things just for the money. Do it because it’s important and because it suits you. Don’t take the highest paying opportunity just because it’s the highest paying opportunity.
Work toward financial security, but don’t obsess over it. Life is too short to be obsessed with money. Time is more valuable. Do important things with your time, while working toward financial freedom.
Build financial security for the sake of freedom, not for the sake of buying more stuff. Real wealth starts with being thankful for what you already have.
