U know this is just pure randomness in thoughts, just penning down thoughts that stick with me.
U know, there is always this comparison with money and personality. And we always say we like to be treated well because we are kind of people like us, not because we are rich and powerful.
It is said that if we are welcome because of money and our position, when we lose it ( maybe because of fire ) we will have a hard time adjusting because those who respect us because of our appointment will then treat us with cold shoulders.
I generally agree that money simply amplify who we are, like Warren says, if u are jerk, u just become a bigger jerk when we become rich.
I would like to point to 1 similarity though.
We tend to think that we will lose money sooner or later, if later maybe due to retirement.
I would point out it is very easy to lose character too. If u think beliefs, values are part of character, just think back in our corporate race, how many times have we change our beliefs.
Then we lose the people who stick with us for our values. We can buy insurance to safeguard our financial wealth to a certain extend, but I am the insurance for our values is a bit more complicated. It contains both lump sum and regular premium and the frequency of payment could be in days
I dun agree it's one or the other too. It's totally possible to have two and have none.
But then if I can choose more of 1, I know what I will choose
