- How Much Money Is Enough? The Story Of The Mexican Fisherman
This is one of my favorite stories. It’s about an American businessman and a Mexican fisherman.
A lot of people want to make more money so they can live a better life.
They tell themselves: “Once I make enough money, then I’ll go live the life I want.”
But that’s a mistake. Living the life they want should be accomplished now, not later.
They spend the majority of their lives working, but along the way, they often forget what they’re working for.
They start to prioritize work and making more money without a reason, and that’s a problem.
They just want to have more and more, with no apparent end goal.
The Mexican Fisherman story is here to remind you to take a step back, and think about what you’re actually working for, and what you already have. Every so often, you should reflect on and reevaluate your priorities. There is more to life than just work and money after all.
