Another Year has Gone By

1 Jan

Our bellies are full from holiday dinners and gatherings.  Our wallets are a little lighter than most months.  Suffering and tragedies happen everyday in this world we all live in.  Be thankful as another year has gone by and you’re still here to see another sun rise.

Everyone is special in their own right.  Our DNA defines us.  Even identical twins have their own unique interests and personalities.  No one is perfect!  What is my point here?  Nothing in particular, just being a little philosophical here.

There is always someone who is smarter, prettier, richer than you.  Can you measure one’s intelligence?  There are tests to measure your IQ.  But there are some subjects that one can not fully excel at its optimal observance.  Can you measure one’s beauty?  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and everyone’s opinions are different from one another.  Can you measure one’s wealth?  Certainly, Assets – Liabilities = Net Worth.  According to Forbes, the richest person in 2012 is Carlos Slim at $69 Billion.  That’s a lot of money for just one person.  Well, he did earn it in his own right.  Carlos Slim is numero uno in the super rich.  Do you even know what he does?  Honestly, I haven’t heard of him till I looked up who is the richest person in the world?  He has been on top since 2010 after beating out Bill Gates who reigned the title for several years.

My goals are simple:  Save, invest and grow my wealth at a rapid speed where I can be comfortable in life.  As long as I have enough to not worry about the next pay check.
