293 Rich Life.519

Today’s takeaway from Seth Godin’s “We Are All Weird” where he answers the question ‘what does it mean to be rich’ …..

“Rich isn’t a measure of a bank balance.  No, rich means making a choice, choosing an identity and following a path that matters.

Based on that notion, we’re at our best when we’re weird and when we’re enabling others to become weird as well.  (Weird – people who have chosen who have avoided conforming to the masses, at least in some parts of their lives).

If we’re going to demonize, criticize and isolate people who no longer fit our definition of normal, we will fail.  The alternative is an attitude based on respect, the respect we accord to someone brave enough to choose precisely what it is they want”.

Rich and weird – I like that!

Enjoy a rich, weird Sunday
