I’ve been rich(er) and I’ve been poor(er). I can tell you that despite what rich people would have you believe, it’s much harder work being poor. There is also very little correlation between wealth and intelligence. So the next time they ask, “You’re smart – why aren’t you rich?” You can ask them, “You’re rich – why aren’t you smart?” There is only one sure-fire method of being wealthy that I know of. It is a simple three-step process: 1. Get lucky. 2. Spend less than you make. 3. Stay lucky. There. I just saved you $399 plus expenses for a weekend ‘financial’ seminar. You can thank me later. 😉
It is in descending in the humble silence of prayer that we are able to ascend to the greatest heights of true human fulfillment in union with God.
