Happiness and Being Alive
Develop the mindset of “living rich”. Don’t worry about trying to die rich. You cannot take it with you.
In the 50’s and 60’s of the previous century very few people lived beyond age 60. Due to medical miracles an additional 25, 30, even 35 and more years have been added to life expectancy in general.
- How do you intend spending these added years?
One way is to buy a backpack and go “walk-about” for a few years through countries that are currently just names on a map for you, climb the Alps, cycle through a country, volunteer – if those are what makes your life worthwhile.
People are said to regret what they have not done, rather than what they have done in life – and this may even be true of presidents, princes and paupers alike.
