Someone shared this with me a while ago and I keep thinking about it. The advice is 3 simple thoughts:
- Make all you can make.
- Don’t be overly lavish.
- Give all you can give.
We can grow in our ability to make, spend and give, but we should keep spending in check, while allowing making and giving to flourish.
Let me tell you the story of two investors, neither of whom knew each other, but whose paths crossed in an interesting way….
…. Some people are born into families that encourage education; others are against it. Some are born into flourishing economies encouraging of entrepreneurship; others are born into war and destitution. I want you to be successful, and I want you to earn it. But realize that not all success is due to hard work, and not all poverty is due to laziness. Keep this in mind when judging people, including yourself.
