What is your dream? Is it to make a lot of money?
If your dream is to become wealthy, I congratulate and encourage you. That is a lofty and worthwhile dream.
There is absolutely nothing wrong in being wealthy.
Riches are good. Money is good. Wealth is good. When we talk of wealth, we are talking of abundance, riches, valuable possessions.
I admire people who are wealthy and live in affluence. Living in opulence is good as long as it is legitimately earned.
If you know a way to create a fortune for yourself and live in luxury, don’t squander it.
If you become one of the billionaires of the world (and you can be), you can use your wealth to do a lot of good for others; for your people; your country and why not humanity in general?
Honestly earned wealth is unquestionably good. And it is the right of every body to be wealthy.
You can be wealthy; but listen! There is a point about life that many people miss.
Make no mistake.
There is a common saying that health is wealth.
Mahatma Gandhi says wealth “is not pieces of gold or silver” “It is health that is real wealth.”
Urijah Faber goes on the same line:
” Good health is true wealth.”
While Raph Waldo Emerson says,
“The first wealth is health.”
For the famous ancient, Roman poet, Virgil, “The greatest wealth is health.”
And to Hippocrates, the Greek Doctor who lived from 460 to 370 BC and called the Father of Medicine, “Health is the greatest of human blessings.”
These are just a few great minds randomly selected.
While you are labouring to succeed in your job, rise in position or to make a lot of money through your business, make sure you take care of your health. Do not neglect it.
Pay careful attention to tips on healthy living so that you can live healthily and enjoy the world.
One anonymous write says, “You can’t enjoy wealth if you’re not in good health. ”
It can’t be better said. What will it profit you if you have a lot of money but are in great pains because of poor heath?
Some people have much money but cannot eat the things they love because their health does not permit them. Maybe they spent their time pursuing riches and neglected their health.
Good health is important for success, be it to rise in your job, win an election, become President, or make a fortune.
What do I mean by this?
I mean that good health enhances your chances of succeeding in these areas. Poor health can be an impediment.
Let me explain. If you have worries about your health, you will not be able to put all of your energy into your work to achieve the success that you desire.
Take for example that you have to lie on a hospital bed for months; that is time taken away from you. Or take that you are paralysed or bedridden. It will be hard to do what you would have loved to do.
If you are not healthy, instead of focusing on your job or business, you will be worrying about your health.
In some countries, sound physical health is a pre-requisite for someone to run for president. And this is wise.
Hence, you need to watch your health and stay healthy.
The greatest worry about health and safety in the world today is the corona virus pandemic.
Let us look at this for a while because it is a threat to everybody from street sweepers to superstars, world political, business and ecclesiastical leaders. Nobody is immune to this disease. Worse of all, it is deadly.
In some parts of the world, the surge in infected cases is frightening.
The jump in one day in the USA, for example, is unbelievable. Figures for Thursday July 16, 2020 stood at over 77.000. Just imagine that! Meanwhile, in the roughly 6 months of the existence of the disease in the world, and precisely by Saturday, 18 July, 2020 when we wrote this, 14.211.652 people had fallen into its dragnet.
And of this number, 599,827 persons had received the fatal blow.
What accounts for our inability to contain this deadly disease?
Are we, the common people, to blame or our leaders are to blame?
It intrigues me that people are dying, figures are soaring and yet, when I look around me, I find lots of people who don’t care to respect barriers measures to stop the spread of the pandemic.
Many people I see everyday behave as if they were immune to covid 19.
Hardly would you find them wearing a nose mask, doing hand sanitization or respecting social distancing.
This is worrisome because it increases the chances of the spread of the disease.
Covid 19 is a dangerous reality which everyone must dread and take seriously.
The best action anyone can take as an individual to be safe and enhance the safety of others is to respect the barrier measures given by the WHO.
Three of them stand out above the others:
- Wear your nose mask.
- Respect social distancing.
- Wash your hands and sanitize them.
These measures must be respected at all times and as a package not selectively.
What I see many people do is they select what to respect and do not care about others. For instance, someone will wear a mask but not bother to wash and sanitize their hands.
Another error I see people making is they will respect the measures at one time, and at another, will not.
You will find everyone in Church during a funeral or wedding Mass wearing their nose mask and respecting social distancing.
Later on, at the reception ground, they will throw off their nose masks and interact normally with no regard for social distancing.
Corona virus is something to be feared. It is dangerous because it kills. It has killed many and will still kill many. No one is immune to it and there is no vaccine yet. Although some patients have recovered from it, the best cure is prevention.
Wherever you find yourself in the world, do not play about this deadly pandemic. Make sure you take the necessary measures to protect yourself, your family and others.
Keep in mind that health is wealth. One who has good health is rich. One who has poor health is poor indeed.
Do not be like those people who spend all their time running after their business or career and make huge money but lose their health and have to spend all the money fighting, and sometimes in vain, to regain their health.
Health is wealth. Yes. Health is wealth.
