Billionaire Steve Gouves Dies at 56

Steve Gouves dies a billionaire, with a fortune of $7billion, at the age of 56 from pancreatic cancer, & here are some of his last words:

"In other eyes, my life is the essence of success, but aside from work, I have little joy, & in the end wealth is just a fact of life to which I am accustomed.

At this moment, lying on my bed, sick & remembering all my life, I realize that all my recognition & the wealth that I have is meaningless in the face of imminent death.

You can hire someone to drive a car for you, make money for you but – you can not rent someone to carry a disease for you. One can find material things, but there is one thing that cannot be found when it's lost – “life”.

Treat yourself well, & cherish others. As we get older we get smarter, & we slowly realize that a watch worth $30 or $300 – both display the same time.

Whether we carry a purse or a wallet worth $30 or $300 – the amount of money in it remains the same. Whether we drive a car worth $150,000, or $30,000 – the road & distance is the same, we will eventually arrive at the same destination.

If one drinks a bottle of wine worth $300 or $10,000 – the “stroller” will be the same.

If the house we live in is 300 square meters or 3000 square meters – the loneliness is the same.

Your true inner happiness does not come from material things. Whether you’re flying first class,

or economy class – if the plane crashes, you crash with it.

So, I hope you understand that when you have friends or someone to talk to – that is true happiness!
