When is enough, enough? #114
For many of us, we never quite feel we have enough. Whether it is instagram likes, facebook shares, youtube views or money! The sad problem with this is, we never truly know when enough, is enough. We never truly know if what we have is actually enough to make us happy if we stopped looking for the next big thing.
The transcript for the story Ryan Holiday talks about in this episode is here:
“The knowledge that I have enough”
The reason I help people for FREE most of the time, is NOT because I have less value than those who charge, or hate selling or struggle with imposter syndrome.
It’s because of this 60 second clip which explains something I wish more people could truly understand.
Until this becomes a reality, you will always prioritise money over the more important things in life without sometimes even knowing it.
True story, Word of Honor:
Joseph Heller, an important and funny writer
and I were at a party given by a billionaire
on Shelter Island.
I said, “Joe, how does it make you feel
to know that our host only yesterday
may have made more money
than your novel ‘Catch-22’
has earned in its entire history?”
And Joe said, “I’ve got something he can never have.”
And I said, “What on earth could that be, Joe?”
And Joe said, “The knowledge that I’ve got enough.”
Not bad! Rest in peace!”
