Good morning team,

Once a year, I re-read a great book Nassim Taleb's
Fooled by Randomness.

It's a reminder to always be humble.

Now for most wealthy people that's a very hard thing to do.  

You see, wealth can make you more of whatever you are.

If you're already arrogant, it will make you MORE arrogant.

If you are humble, it will make you MORE humble.

It would behoove everyone to take heed
to a passage called SOLON WARNING:

Greek mythology has Solon's visiting Croesus, King of Lydia
the richest man on earth at the time.

Solon a philosopher and a very ethical man, wasn't  
impressed with the King's pompous attitude and 
material possessions.

He displayed his displeasure in analogies
and tales he told the King.

So the King asked, if he had known a happier man than him.

Solon answered:
"The observation of the numerous misfortunes that attend all conditions
forbids us to grow insolent upon our present enjoyments, or to admire a
man's happiness that may yet, in course of time, suffer change.

For the uncertain future has yet to come, with all variety of future; and
him only to whom the divinity has [guaranteed] continued happiness until
the end we may call happy."

Later, King Croesus was conquered by another King and he was about
to be burned alive and he yelled..... Solon you were RIGHT!

Things change.

Now when you finally make it to the top, don't get so full of yourself
that you forget how you got there.

Your ego will tell you it was your brilliance, hard work, strategy,
skills, and determination.

And yes all contributed... but luck was the significant PLAYER.

In life, we are tossed to and fro; from one stream to another,
and from one situation to another.

It ain't over until its over.

Just keep living.... 

Things can change quickly.

The reality, LUCK rules the world.

Until that day... make every moment count.

If you know the role luck plays in your everyday life then position yourself favorably
with a new business concept that's sweeping the
country. Click Here
