"IT'S NOT ABOUT MONEY"

 Wealth and what it brings is at best fleeting. For example, in 1923 a small group of the world's wealthiest men met at the Edgewater Beach Hotel in Chicago, Illinois. They were the "Who's Who" of wealth and power. At that time they controlled more money than the total amount contained in the United States Treasury. Here's a list of who was there and what eventually happened to them ...

Charles Schwab:   President of the largest independent steel company - died broke.

Arthur Cutten:   Greatest of the wealth speculators - died abroad, insolvent.

Richard Witney:   President of the New York Stock Exchange - died just after his release from Sing Sing prison.

Albert Fall:   Member of a U.S. President's cabinet - was abandoned from prison so that he could die at home.

Jess Livermore:   Greatest "Bear" on Wall Street - committed suicide.

Leon Fraser:   President of the Bank of International Settlements - committed suicide.

Ivar Kreuger:   Head of the world's greatest monopoly - committed suicide.

 

 Even Greek millionaire Aristotle Onassia, who retained his wealth and died at a ripe old age, recognized that money isn't the same as SUCCESS. He said, "After you reach a certain point, money becomes unimportant. What matters is success."

Interesting. Reminds me of the quote "Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get."

Is that Charles Schwab related to the Charles Schwab of today?

I agree with that! The problem is that some view "success" as the domination and subjugation of their fellow man. Think "politician" . . .

VB, that is very interesting about those gentlemen or from the looks of what happened to some, not so gentlemen....money doesn't buy you happiness, but it certainly doesn't hurt, right.....I get the jest of the post though....

VB,

Success is defined personally.  There are many that have achieved quite a bit of financial wealth, but are always afraid of losing it.  There are those happy with their lot in life.  There are those passionately in pursiuit of a dream, then there are those passionately in pursuit.  Who is to judge which is successful?  

The answer lies within each of us.
