Your Path to Wealth, Happiness, and a Purposeful Life

But money also gives you time and resources to make the world a better place…to contribute to your community and be generous in ways that will bring the kind of happiness that money alone can’t buy. That’s what it means to be More than a Millionaire.

The 638 Best Quotes for the Runner

On January 2, I weighed a “svelte” 205 pounds. My “executive” physical a few weeks earlier had been lots of fun. My doctor, trying to be humorous (doctors rarely are) told me I was not overweight—however, he informed me I was five inches too short. At five feet nine inches, I needed to lose forty pounds or more.

So it was decision time. Should I continue down the path of “master couch potato”? Or should I do something about my physical fitness? The self-help audio book is telling me, “What goal would you set if you knew it was impossible to fail?” So I set a crazy, audacious goal: to lose forty pounds and run a marathon with the year—at age fifty. Crazy? Maybe. Eleven months later in my journey I completed the Route 66 Marathon in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
