Why 98% of People Die Without Fulfilling Their Dreams

I googled “death due to lack of purpose” I was thinking about how older people who are sick tend to stay alive when they have a purpose, even if that purpose is to take care of a pet. We all need a reason to get out of bed in the morning.

But what I got was a headline for a blog post to a retirement investment company that wants me to become a wealth machine.

 If you want to become part of the 2%, you don’t need to possess any special skills that no one else has, and you don’t need any specific degrees or inheritance. The steps are few and simple. Today, we cover the first of 17 principles to live by. 

That unnamed blog post

Fuck this.

I can become part of the 2% that achieve their dreams if I just follow this 17 step process. I will not bore you with any more absurdity but rest assured he fixes the cable.

Money is not the problem nor is it the answer.

Money does solve a lot of the worlds problems. And money can solve our personal problems of food, clothing, and shelter.

But working your whole life chasing money in the name of one day when you are 70+ you will start a foundation like Bill and Melinda, I think you are missing out on a lot of life and opportunity to start now.

What would you do if you had unlimited money?

I was watching a video that posed this question.

#1 answer: I would start a business doing XYZ.

The person posing the question was stunned. You have unlimited money and you can do whatever you want and you decide to open a business to make more money? WTF?

I think it telling that people answering the question did not hear or understand the question. They did not reflect on or even consider what they would do if money was never to be a concern again for them.

WWYD?

I think most of us would get pretty bored if our answer was living on the beach and having a cabana boy bring us whatever our desire was.

I think the answer is not just making more money. I think the answer is to minimize the need for money in your life so that you can be free to make an impact in the world around you.

How would you answer that question? Do that. Whatever that is. Start.

Your friend,
