Most people spend their entire career saving up for retirement. With the hopes that someday they will be able to live the retirement of their dreams, whether that's on a beach somewhere or whatever your dream is. We invest in 401K's, IRA's, retirement funds, stocks, gold and silver. Now what happens if when you get there, to the age of retirement, and you are not in good enough health to enjoy it? What was all that work worth?
What if you work your entire life to make enough money to send your kids to the private schools, to drive the best cars, live in the best neighborhoods, but in order to achieve that you had to be more dedicated to your job than your family? In the mean time, as your kids grow, they dont know their parent, your spouse has fell out of love with you. But the facade looks good right?
What have you been investing in?
No matter how much money you have you can never buy your health back. We see that time and time again with celebrities. Look at Steve Jobs, all the money in the world, but couldn't buy his health back. Invest in your health and your loved ones on a daily basis. Whether it is going to the gym, taking a walk or jog, reading a book to your kids when you are too tired and dont feel like it. Invest in the things that matter, they will pay much larger dividends than any stock will ever pay.
