When you have Enough, the extra money means very little. I’ve been broke, and being broke sucks balls. Having Enough is awesome. How would I define “Enough”? Enough means that you can take a friend out to a nice lunch and not have to worry about how much it costs. I have hung out with a couple of billionaires—my experiences indicate that being a billionaire is just incrementally better than Enough.
I could truthfully repeat this statement as my own. I too have lived well below the poverty level. I too know people wealthy by any measure. Enough is all most of us ever really need and the benefits of having more than that is marginal.
I think this is very true..I don’t make that much but even if, more money is not what it seems…it just numbs on you. Just enough is ideal to me.
I no longer have the energy for meaningless friendships, forced interactions or unnecessary conversations. If we don’t vibrate on the same frequency there’s just no reason for us to waste our time. I’d rather have no one and wait for substance than to not feel someone and fake the funk.
You are most powerful when you are most silent. People never expect silence. They expect words, motion, defense, offense, back and forth. They expect to leap into the fray. They are ready, fists up, words hanging leaping from their mouths. Silence? No.
I just want to somehow impact the world. But I know to do that I can’t think like everyone else.
