We believe that real wealth lies in the quality of our relationships, the experiences we enjoy, and the act of giving and helping others.
As farmers, it’s easy to get caught up in the daily grind of making money and growing your businesses. But at the end of the day, what really matters is the impact we have on the world around us.
The truth is when we die… we can’t take anything with us.
- You can’t take your money with you
- You cant take your farm with you (or any other investments)
- You can take any of the stuff that you accumulate
- You cant take your family with you
This is why so many people nearing death begin to have regrets. And the biggest regrets of the dying (according to a nurse who works in end-of-life care) include:
- Not living a life true to oneself: Many people regret not having the courage to pursue their dreams and instead live their lives according to the expectations of others.
- Working too much: People often regret spending too much time at work and not enough time with their loved ones.
- Not expressing emotions: People often regret not expressing their emotions more freely, whether it’s telling someone they love them or expressing their anger or frustration.
- Not staying in touch with friends and family: People often regret not staying in touch with friends and family as much as they would have liked.
- Not having the courage to be happy: Many people regret not having the courage to be happy, to take risks, and to pursue their passions.
- Not travelling: Many people regret not travelling more and experiencing new cultures and ways of life.
- Not forgiving: People often regret holding grudges and not forgiving those who have wronged them.
- Not taking care of their health: Many people regret not taking care of their health and neglecting their physical and mental well-being.
- Not spending more time enjoying life: People often regret not taking the time to enjoy the simple pleasures of life, such as spending time in nature or pursuing hobbies and interests.
- Not being more present: People often regret not being fully present in the moment and not cherishing the time they had with their loved ones.
But perhaps the most important aspect of real wealth is the act of giving and helping others.
As farmers, you have the opportunity to make a positive impact on the world by donating your resources, volunteering your time, or simply being there for those in need. It’s through these acts of kindness that you can create a ripple effect of positivity and change that extends far beyond yourself
We believe that real wealth is not just about what we accumulate for ourselves but what we do for others.
Have a great day,
