The Billionaire

By Greg Baer M.D.

August 22, 2011

Earlier this year I spoke with a man whose net worth was $1.4 billion. He employs more than a hundred thousand people in his various businesses and spends vast sums on homes, vacations, vehicles, and more. He said, "I am the loneliest man on earth. I have no friends, my children avoid me, and my wife doesn't want to be around me."

Even though all this man's material wealth and power have brought him no joy whatever, a great many of us still work very hard all our lives to possess only a tiny fraction of what he has. In short, we trade our lives for nothing. Before we work to achieve anything, we need to consider whether our goal is worth achieving, as well as considering what we might have to sacrifice to reach it.
