How to Enjoy your Wealth - Respect your Temple

An old adage once said "your body is your temple" We must learn to respect our temple (bodies) in order to fully enjoy the fruits of our labor.

What is the point of saving and investing and building a comfortable future if we neglect our health ?

Think about what you would like to be doing once you become wealthy. Now think about looking at yourself in the mirror. What do you see ?  Will you be physically and mentally up to the challenge ?

I have seen far too many individuals save and invest their entire lives only to fall ill soon after they are able to start enjoying their wealth. What a shame. What a tragedy.

                                                                       What To Do

You should start by doing an evaluation of where you are starting from today. Maybe you need to stop smoking. Maybe you need to cut down on your drinking. Your eating habits may need to be adjusted. Perhaps you could exercise more. Etc. etc. etc.

Whatever the case may be, you are the best one to determine what you will need to do to provide the longest and healthiest possible future for yourself.

Make sure you have regular check ups with your doctor and dentist. Neglecting these visits could some day result in a delay to getting valuable treatment for many potential disorders. You never know.

A lot of stress in your life could also cause many health problems down the road. Work today at doing whatever you can to reduce the level of your stress. Professional help in this area should never be ruled out.

Let go of the past. Do not obsess with the days that have passed. There is nothing that can be done about the past anyway. Do not fear for the future. It may never happen. Live in the present and do what you can now to improve your situation.

There is an old saying that says, it's not always what you eat, but what eats you that is a major cause of health problems. So True. Don't Worry, be happy.

Having a healthy mind and a healthy body will greatly improve your chances of being able to enjoy your future wealth. This is not to say that bad things will never happen. You never really know. However, it will give you a much better chance to truly realize your dreams.

Start respecting your temple today and work towards a long and enjoyable future.You owe it to yourself and your loved ones.

As always, I welcome your comments and suggestions for future topics.
