by I loved reading Jacob Needleman’s meaning of life book.
For anyone that wants to add more “life” into their financial planning conversation, this book is a must read.
If for no other reasons, the questions Dr. Needleman raises are wonderful.
What can we give?
What are we meant to give?
What, exactly, is our attitude toward money, and how did it originate?
How deeply is our sense of self-identity bound up with our emotions about money?
What is real wealth?
I have to include this wonderful quote.
“Personal gain is not excluded from a spiritual life. On the contrary, one gains something in order to give.
This is the essence, not only of human life, but of existence itself.”
When I send personal life event cards to my clients, I always include the following:
Wishing you- Physical- Spiritual- and Financial health.
This simple triad says it all.
