An Expensive Funeral
Recently I had a great conversation with a very successful distributor owner. He is only in his 50s, but is ready to sell his business.
He has made great money in his years in the business. No doubt he could make much more.
When I asked why he does not keep growing the business and make more money, he replied, “I’m ready to enjoy my life. I don’t want to keep working until I die so I can have an expensive funeral.”
There are two key pieces of wisdom and lessons in his comments:
1. Know what you want your senior years to look like and work to achieve that vision.
2. Do not just live hand to mouth in your comfort zone. Work with vision and passion when you are younger to accumulate the savings to enjoy your senior years.
Of course, none of these comments are meant to suggest you should not enjoy your life during your working years. The key is working with a vision and passion to create an amazing life for your present and your future.
