Darren Reed @lifttheoffer what would you consider to be good/avg/bad in terms of $, career, health, relationship, mind, spirit etc for a 20/30/40 year old
In 1999 I bought an apartment in NYC. I was really anxious about this. I was 31. I wanted to know what the net worth was of everyone else in the building. When I was 29 I got married for the first time. Was I too young? When I was 30 my ex-wife had a kid. Was I too young to be a father?
I wanted to know in absolute terms. Should I have my first million by 30? Should I be retired by 40? Should I have sex with 100 women before settling down? (that didn’t happen by the way).
What? When? Where? I wanted to know HOW? WHY?
There’s no absolutes. And, as they say, “60 is the new 40”. “40 is the new 25”. And, unfortunately, “15 is the new 21”.
Here’s what I do now: Every six months, am I better off in my “4 bodies”: physical, emotional, mental, spiritual?
Note: I don’t say “financial”. Financial is just a tool. Use it or lose it.
But am I on a consistent path to stay healthy, to keep positive people in my life, to improve the way I think, and do I have more and more things to be grateful and happy about (after all, what else is spirituality about?)
If the answer is “no” then I try to correct. If “yes” then, well, YES!
