Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.
Boy, that sure sounds like a fairly easy road to success, doesnt it? Staying healthy, getting wealthy and acquiring knowledge is just a matter of rising early in the morning and retiring early in the evening, at least according to old Ben. While enjoying a healthy lifestyle is well within the reach of each of us, living right doesnt necessarily have anything to do with our sleeping habits.
It does, however, have a lot to do with how we use our waking hours. And getting sufficient rest, which can make a significant difference in how effectively we operate during the day, is a great place to start. So maybe Mr. Franklin was on to something after all.
The first wealth is health.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Keeping ourselves refreshed and recharged in todays hustle and bustle world is by no means an easy task. We far too often unnecessarily sacrifice our health in order to maintain a breakneck pace. We push ourselves too far and spread ourselves too thin until we come precariously close to the breaking point. And thats not good.
We sometimes forget, in our daily pursuit of excellence, that good health cannot by bought with all the money in the world. Theres an old Arabian Proverb that says, He who has health, has hope. And he who has hope, has everything. Getting anything and everything we truly desire begins with good health.
We need to pay heed to our bodies, watching for any early warning signals that were about to burn ourselves up or burn ourselves out. Our ability to maximize our God given potential revolves around our most precious asset our HEALTH.
Wealth is the ability to fully experience life.
Henry David Thoreau
When we feel great, we invariably perform at a much higher level. Since we are super fired up and really raring to go, our energy levels shoot off the charts. On the other hand, when we feel lousy forget about it.
The greatest wealth any of us could ever possess lies within us; the capacity to squeeze all of the fun, excitement and happiness we can from each and every day. Making the most of our life adventure is what true wealth is all about.
Come on, how could any of us place a price tag on living our dreams and fulfilling our destinies on earth? Sarah Bernhardt had this to say on the subject: Life begets life. Energy creates energy. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich. When we fully immerse ourselves in full throttle living, showering those around us with gifts of hope, praise and happiness, we can become wealthy beyond our wildest dreams. It is by giving ourselves away that we acquire real WEALTH in life.
View life as a continuous learning experience.
Last but certainly not least, we must never stop learning. We are never too young, or for that matter, too old to glean valuable life lessons from each and every day we are blessed with on earth. When we approach each new dawn with the wide eyed enthusiasm and optimism of a young child, we begin seeing limitless opportunities all around us.
Now, with the blinders that once restricted our vision removed for good, super ideas and innovative approaches will come rushing forward from out of the blue. Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common.
When you keep on open mind and continually seek to get better with each passing day, youll soon be WISE beyond your years.
By staying healthy, wealthy and wise, you can fashion a lifetime of super sensational achievement.
The Bottom Line: Cherishing your health and treasuring your hidden wealth are the wisest moves youll ever make.
