IF YOU FAILED THESE THREE THINGS, YOU CAN’T HAVE A COMPLETE LIFE
3 THINGS YOU MUST PURSUE IN LIFE JUST LIKE CHRISTIANS HOPE FOR HEAVEN
There are so many things competing everybody’d attention, from the UN security council, looking for ways to find peace between the people of Palestine and the Jewish people in Israel. Even though we all have varying life goals and aspirations competing for our attention, these three essential things must concern you- so far as you are alive and continue to exist during the duration of your journey on earth.
If you failed to achieve these three important things in life you can’t have a complete and fulfilling life life on earth.
What are these 3 things that the super-rich, multi-millionaires and the wealthy are mindful very mindful of but ignored by the have not and the ordinary people on earth?
1. FAILURE TO PURSUE ACQUISITION OF WEALTH
Don’t pretend money doesn’t mean anything to you. If you are really honest and truthful to yourself, you will come to the realization that more than 70% of your thinking is centered on money issues -whether to buy a new home, embark on that long vacation you’ve been planning for some years now, change that your old car to a latest one, upgrade your education & skills, move to a better neighborhood or city, start your own business, visit your parents and in-laws more regularly than you are doing now etc. all have the same denominator-money.
Since the liquid cash is the connector of all these things, you must develop your ability, skills, knowledge, talents or whatever to possess these convertible liquid cash- to be able to actualize these dreams of yours. People don’t really care about how much wisdom you have and how much you care about people in your heart.
So far as we are living in the material world, people would judge you by the material possessions you have acquired. Surprisingly, many people are not too much concern about how you acquired your wealth but your ability to possess it-period.
There’s a verse in the bible that says “the LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7b)
So far as we remain human on earth, your family, your friends, your spouse, your own children, church members, fellow coworkers etc. would judge you based on the wealth you possess. The type of car you drive, the house you live in, the dress you wear, the neighborhood you live in etc. would go a long way to tell people your financial status in life.
Unlike the supreme God who would assess you by the kind of heart you have towards your fellow beings, people will look at what you’ve to give you respect or otherwise.

Mr. Gates said” If you are born poor, don’t blame yourself but if you die poor blame yourself”.

What money can do, this write up may not be enough to pen them all. Wealth acquisition is one of the things you should pursue as a matter of right.

2. FAILURE TO PURSUE HEALTHY LIFE
What does it profit you, if you acquired all the wealth you’ve plan for but failed to live in good health to enjoy your labor as the case may be. The rich are becoming conscious of what they eat, drink and avoid anything that wouldn’t help them to live long life-to enjoy their accumulated wealth.
It appears many low people live their lives carelessly without looking at the implications of the future consequences of their lifestyle today. There are lifestyle changes you’ve got to make if you realize that it will bring you problems to your health in the future.

Don’t joke with your health today because you are up and going and for that matter you don’t see the need to make lifestyle adjustment about your health. Remember some of the effects on your system are irreversible and the earlier you pay attention to your health the better.

3. PURSUE RELATIONSHIP
If you are successful in the two essentials of life- wealth acquisition and adoption of healthy lifestyle, the next equally important thing about your life is your relationship with family and friends.
You can’t enjoy your wealth you have acquired in isolation. You would need people around you to celebrate your success with you. That’s why it’s important to maintain healthy relationship with your spouse as well as your children.
Many successful people in businesses failed to be successful in their relationship with their families. I think relationship should be prioritize above the two earlier mentioned. The pathetic thing in life is that when you are no more, people would spend your wealth in your absence, so, why don’t you nurture a healthy relationship with those who will inherit you when you are no more.
Revise your relationship with your first family and make yourself available to integrate yourself in the family. Don’t pursue wealth at the expense of your family. Wealth and health can go bad but your family will always be there for you, so, think again about your relationship with your family.
We’ve been able to discuss these three essentials of life: wealth, healthy life and healthy relationship with family and friends. These three things are so important that you can’t do away with any one of them. You need the three to live a comfortable life. Pursue all and don’t compromise on any one of them.
