Your Health is YourWealth (1)

“The first wealth is health.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Across the world, so many people usually spend their health achieving wealth, and later spend their wealth regaining their health. Everyone knows how vital their health is to them, but do they actually think about how exactly interrelated their health is to their wealth? Regardless of how much a person owns, a life can quickly become worthless when they have ill health.

“He who enjoys good health is rich, though he knows it not.” –Italian Proverb

Because wealth, health and success are very strongly related, any change in any area of life leads to a positive effect on the other. A healthy lifestyle have some direct benefits such as increasing self-esteem and motivation to offer you the independent confidence and thinking to create wealth over a long term.

“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.” –Jim Rohn

Health also helps increase your earnings capacity since you have more energy and time to work. Additionally, you can save more money by staying healthy, that is, avoiding the destructive health practices such as drugs, smoking and alcohol, which can easily impact your wealth building plans.

“To keep the body in good health is a duty, otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” -Buddha

Both wealth and health need proactive action and almost everything can be easily jeopardize when you sit back and do not make any changes. Adopting or living a healthy lifestyle, will help you to improve your chances to accomplish your wealth accumulating goals.

  1. Richard, your very first sentence here rings so true. In my thirty-year career (from which I have retired) the industry went through several decades of serious problems which resulted in a high incidence of equally serious health issues among those in my profession…a hugely stressful occupation that was dangerous, demanding horrendous work hours all the time, was fraught with high pressure and stress/anxiety and ultimately resulted in many in the industry burning out, suffering severe heart attacks and many more health problems that drove them out of the industry.

    A veteran to the industry, I was one of the more fortunate who, at the early warning signs of serious health problems to come, heeded the warnings of medical professionals who implored that I make some prompt changes in workload or a new career entirely.

    When our health begins to falter we cannot be working at 100%. The declining process may be gradual but the symptoms of trouble to come are telling and increasingly severe and alarming. Performance at the workplace trails off, mistakes or omissions occur, panic over getting behind or not produced as we must….the list goes on and on.

    Achieving success demands a higher performance level and that in turn demands the physical and mental capacity to work at that level. Health is certainly a factor in determining just how far we can go toward achieving our goals.

  2. Well said Don. Indeed our health is vital for success in life. Therefore, we must take good care of our health.

    Thanks again for sharing your thoughts and experience.
