Well, I am not sure if I agree 100%, but there is something to this quote from Henry Ford. To “succeed” in life, one must concentrate on oneself as well as putting money in the bank. Whether that be by taking a class, finding time to relax, starting a business or whatever, to truly succeed is worth more than having money in the bank. And to me, having money without happiness doesn’t mean a thing.
“I think that much of the advice given to young men about saving money is wrong. I never saved a cent until I was forty years old. I invested in myself – in study, in mastering my tools, in preparation. Many a man who is putting a few dollars a week into the bank would do much better to put it into himself.” – Henry Ford
