The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him the most about humanity, answered… “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
The quote above is as true as it gets. As a financial professional I see this on a daily basis. People work their butts off and put off living life. They work until they are sick and say I will enjoy my life when I retire, but at retirment they are spending all that they had earned for this cherished time of their life on keeping themselves alive. Financial Fitness is making sure you have a well balanced plan for your financial future, so that you can enjoy both work and play.
