Steve Jobs on happiness
Steve Jobs died of Cancer at the age of 56….
Did being a billionaire make him happy?
“aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to”
This is important
“Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends…Treat yourself well. Cherish others.”
This is not important
Material stuff is just that – stuff – it does not bring happiness
As we grow older, and hence wiser, we slowly realize that wearing a $300 or $30 watch – they both tell the same time…
Whether we carry a $300 or $30 wallet/handbag – the amount of money inside is the same;
Whether we drive a $150,000 car or a $30,000 car, the road and distance is the same, and we get to the same destination.
Whether we drink a bottle of $300 or $10 wine – the hangover is the same;
Whether the house we live in is 300 or 3000 sq ft – loneliness is the same.
Whether you fly first or economy class, if the plane goes down – you go down with it…
So what is true happiness?
Therefore.. I hope you realize, when you have mates, buddies and old friends, brothers and sisters, who you chat with, laugh with, talk with, have sing songs with, talk about north-south-east-west or heaven and earth, …. That is true happiness!!
Be a human being – not just a human
