The story has that the last words of Steve Jobs, a billionaire, were shortly before he died at the age of 56:
“I have reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In the eyes of others, my life is a success. Aside from work, I have had little joy. In the end, wealth is just a fact I’ve become accustomed to.
Right now I’m in the hospital remembering my entire life, all the recognition and wealth I’ve been so proud of, has faded and become insignificant in the eyes of impending death.
You can hire someone to drive your car or make money for you, but it is impossible to hire someone to take sickness and die for you.
Material things lost can be found again. But there is one thing that never returns if it is lost: life.
Whatever stage of life we are in, over time we will face the day that the curtain closes.
Therefore, love your family, your partner, your children and friends.. Treat them right. Cherish them.
As we get older and wiser we slowly realize that your $300 or $30 watch both give the same time
Whether we have a $300 or $30 wallet, the amount in it is the same.
Whether we drive a $150,000 car or a $30,000 car, the road and the distance are the same, and we reach the same destination.
Whether we drink a $1000 bottle of wine or $10, the hangover is the same.
Whether the house we live in is 100 or 1000 m2, the loneliness is the same.
You will realize that your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world.
Whether you travel first class or second class, if the plane crashes you fall down…
That’s why I hope you realize when you have friends, children, family, siblings, that it’s important that you talk, laugh, sing. Because that is real happiness!
An indisputable fact in life:
Don’t teach your children to be rich.
Teach them to be happy.
Teach them about the value of things and not the price.
Life is beautiful! ”
