First Wealth Is Health
According to Ralph Waldo Emerson, "the first wealth is health" I can't agree more. If you are sick, fatigued, stressed, burnout and unfulfilled, no matter how wealthy you are, you are still poor.
My Father's Story
Let me share a cautionary story of what can happen if you have money but not health. My father was a very wealthy successful business owner. He worked hard to the point of neglecting his health. He became overweight and then got cancer. He spent his health gaining wealth, and then had to spend his wealth trying to regain his health. Unfortunately it was too late and his health went spiral down and he was not able to come back from it. Sadly he eventfully died of cancer. :(
Unlocking wealth is related to the parallel that exists between our holistic health and the material world. A balanced life is one that we keep all our projects going, all our relationships healthy, and all dimensions of health in order. In this chapter, we will focus on the five dimensions of health or pillars of well-being.
