Work hard. As Americans, it’s just what we do. We are hard workers. We are driven. We are ambitious. Capitalism and the freedoms we are afforded in this country reward us for this. A lot of the world doesn’t like this. That’s not our problem. But as you are working hard and kicking ass (figuratively) in school, business, life, remember to have balance. Never lose yourself. Don’t compromise your soul. At the end of the day, and at the end of your life, money isn’t that important. It’s necessary, like air, sure. But remember that your integrity is more important that your net worth.
36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
