Last night I was hanging out with my friend Ramit. We found a watering hole the size of a walk-in closet. So we sat down and squeezed shoulder-to-shoulder with a couple of tourists. I ordered a beer the color of tar. Ramit grabbed a light bottled brew. We clinked our glasses together, said “cheers,” then jumped right into the conversation.
You see, Ramit and I are what some might call, um, how do I say this? Fanatical. We’re value optimizers. We’re obsessed with squeezing the most value out of every opportunity. Whether that’s helping a friend with advice, building a business, optimizing our health, or pretty much anything else important. We love to squeeze every drop of value out of each opportunity. That’s just how we’re wired.
Now one thing you should know about Ramit is that he’s an expert in personal finance and career success. He’s got a super popular blog called I Will Teach You to Be Rich. He’s also got a best selling book by the same name. Ramit does, in fact, teach people to become rich in the monetary sense. His students have seen dramatic increases in their salary and net worth. But there’s something I’ve learned from Ramit that’s probably more important to you and me. So here it is…
LIVING A RICH LIFE.
What does it mean to live a rich life?
I mean, really think about it. What would it mean to you? What would your days look like? How would you feel? Which people would you surround yourself with? What would you no longer worry about? What would you own (or not own)? What would you do for a living?
If you’ve read this far, I’m not going to let you off the hook.
LEAVE A COMMENT below and tell me what it means to you, to live a rich life.
I’m committed to doing good in the world and living an awesome life and I absolutely love. I’ll tell you more about what that means to me in a post coming out soon. For now, I want to hear from you.
