Wealth = Health + Gratitude + Happiness

When I started my second company, I was stressed out

I took a drive alone down the beautiful California coast. I stopped by a beautiful old church and I sat down and collected my thoughts. A priest sat next to me.

We spoke for a while about what I was trying to accomplish

I mentioned that I wanted to make as much money as possible so that I could give my children the standard of living that I wanted them to have.

What he told me that day was incredibly prophetic:

“Chris, 50 years from now your children will not look back on you and remember how much money you made. They will look back and reflect how good of a father you were.”

I was blown away by his comment and I thanked him profusely

I now know in my heart that money does not equal happiness. Please don’t make it your primary goal. Find your passion in life and the money will come whether you want it to or not!

You will be much more successful in business

If you have sincere personal gratitude for what you have.

If we are grateful for at least 1 different thing every day

If we are grateful for at least one different thing

All Your Wealth Can't Buy You Health

In order to be happy you need to find time to exercise daily (no excuses) and focus on nutrition (no excuses) and get 7-8 hours of sleep per night (no excuses).

Exercising daily helps you think more clearly

That positive attitude will remain elevated with exercise.
