Nothing is more important than your health.
If, before you were born, you were given the following choice,
which would you choose?
To be born a millionaire but crippled
To be healthy but penniless
Would you trade in your consciousness for half a million dollars?
Your ability to move for $250,000?
Would you give up your sight for $350,000?
Your sense of smell for $100,000?
Of the important things in life, wealth is probably not in the
So today, just for the record, let’s remind ourselves that…
Health is more important than wealth. Loving relationships are
more important than wealth. And so is the sense that you are
spending your time wisely.
If you don’t have health, you cannot enjoy or sometimes even
experience the other gifts life gives us. If you have wealth but
have no friends to share it with — you have nothing.
And even if you have health and wealth and friendship but
lack purpose, you are going to spend the rest of your life
feeling the lack of it.
Here’s a simple way to appreciate your health and all the other
blessings that you have:
Write down a gratitude list. In other words; all the things in
your life that you are grateful for. This might include your
good health, your comfortable home, your interesting job,
your great friends and anything else you can think of.
Then take a few minutes and add a few items to your
gratitude list every day.

so they can perform at high levels on the really important
things in both their work and personal lives.
