I've always admired Steve Jobs but after his death from pancreatic cancer I learned that - There's no greater wealth than health.
"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary". Steve Jobs.
People (regardless of money or no money) die every minute due to sickness. Many people are going through unbearable pains due to medical issues in life. No one knows the value of eyes more than the blind.
You can only think of money when you are in a good state of health. Many people struggle hard to get rich in life. But in some cases, after getting all the money they want, they realize their health is failing. They go through pain- day and night.
"No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because death is very likely the single best invention of life. It is life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true". Steve Jobs.
No matter how successful you are, without good health your wealth becomes meaningless. Sometimes, sickness ends abruptly with death, shocking family and friends with its abruptness. Sickness goes beyond a fat bank account.
A sick person has only one wish for GOD, not money, not cars, not clothes and not any material things in life. The number 1 wish is for good health to get rid of pain. When a person gets sick and pain becomes unbearable, a terminally sick person cries out to GOD to take everything else if only to have a peace of mind.
"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart" Steve Jobs.
When there is life, then there is hope. You can only have hope and be happy and full of strength to claim your destiny when you are alive.
Let us appreciate the gift of health we have as we read this and continue to work hard to claim our destiny because it's easy to not appreciate the gift of a healthy life until we are bed ridden and have to depend on others for the simplest things in life. Be grateful to GOD for the gift of a healthy life. Always focus on your health to claim your destiny.
On this day use your health and wealth to support and lift someone else who needs your support. Your support means a lot to us
Do something nice for someone today. The first one to benefit from your kindness is you. You'll feel a sense of comfort and the greatest reward comes from God above!
Rest In peace Steve Jobs. The world rarely sees people who make an impact that lasts generations.
