Wealth and Power Aren’t Whats Important in Life. Unless You Have Neither!

This morning I read a short interview featuring Richard Gere, one of my favorite actors for what he stands for off screen as much as onscreen. The title of the article is “It’s Only Money… Richard Gere understands that wealth and power aren’t what’s important in life.”

I glanced at the title and agreed with the premise because at a deeper level I believe this is true; however, as I read the article with greater consideration I came to an awareness of what I believe is the whole truth. Wealth and power aren’t whats important in life unless you have neither!

For people who begin each day grateful for another night of shelter, wondering when and where their first meal of the day will come from… money and power are everything regardless if they accept it or not.

As you read this blog post you are likely not as wealthy as Richard Gere (net worth of $45 million) or as destitute as those unfortunate enough to be homeless. Therefore you find yourself somewhere in between and the ways in which money and power influence your life depends on your personal situation and how you have adapted to it.

I am of the opinion that the greatest victim of the economic meltdown of the past decade is the idea of success itself. Success once celebrated in America revered as the ideal place where you could achieve your greatest ambitions and transform dreams into reality is now frowned upon by too many people who have given up on the American dream itself.

It would seem that the pursuit of wealth and power have become vilified though the media, within pop culture, and in our day to day lives. I think this is unfortunate most of all for our children who are often lead to believe that becoming wealthy or powerful are lesser values or pursuits in life.

In truth once you have secured your financial future at the level of your choosing and obtained power within your sphere of influence, you can impact the lives of others and the causes that are important to you in profound ways.

Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal.”

- Earl Nightingale

Regardless of where you are along your journey, strive to grow the higher values in your life by bringing your whole self to your faith, your relationships, your industry and all other worthy pursuits in your life.

I am here to help you succeed, please let me know how I can make a difference and impact your life!!
