Alex has just launched Spiritual Wealth (www.spiritualwealth.com)!
We sometimes forget that there are two types of riches in this world: material wealth and spiritual wealth. Anything that can be measured in dollars and cents, I call material wealth. Everything else – the love of our families, the health we enjoy, the time we spend doing things we enjoy or working on things that really matter – I call spiritual wealth.
Over the last seven years, almost everything I’ve written has been devoted to increasing readers’ material wealth. But that has changed…
While I still write my usual investment commentary for Investment U and The Oxford Club, Spiritual Wealth is a free, twice-weekly e-letter where we tackle life’s more difficult challenges. And I encourage you to join us, for two reasons…
The first is that all of us grapple - or should – with the big questions in our lives. What matters most? How do we balance our priorities? How do we move beyond success to significance?
Of course, I’ll always believe that financial independence is one of life’s most important goals. It’s what gives you the freedom to do what you want, where you want, with whom you want. Money allows you to provide for your family, help other people, pursue your intellectual and artistic interests, and become an inspiration to members of your community.
I don’t believe anyone can be truly happy as long as he is a slave to his job, his circumstances, or his monthly overhead. But life is not about just accumulating and spending more. There are plenty of things that are more important - and those are exactly the subjects we discuss here each week.
The other reason I’d like you to sign up for Spiritual Wealth – aside from the fact that I think you’ll profit from it – is because I need your input…
Like me, I’m sure you’ve learned many of life’s most important lessons the hard way. So whenever I write about a topic you know something about, please don’t be reluctant to hit the reply button.
Feel free to contribute your thoughts, your ideas, and your “two cents worth” whenever you’d like. We can all benefit from your experiences, but perhaps you most of all. As the old Chinese proverb says, “Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand.”
"Anything that can be measured in dollars and cents, I call material wealth. Everything else – the love of our families, the health we enjoy, the time we spend doing things we enjoy or working on things that really matter – I call spiritual wealth."
- Our contention is that true wealth doesn’t come from making money, but from fulfilling a purpose outside ourselves, whether that’s exercising our talents, raising our kids to be happy, productive adults, or contributing to our communities in some meaningful way.
