Iíve heard you tell people that having $90,000 to $100,000 saved up for retirement isnít enough. Thatís what Iíve got set aside right now, and Iím pretty sure itís all Iíll ever need. Why do you think everyone should have a million or two saved up?
The amount youíre talking about isnít enough to retire
on with any kind of dignity. If you make 10 percent off your money over time it means youíre living on just $10,000 a year. Thatís below the poverty level.
Donít misunderstand my message. Iím not about being greedy, and money is not
the key to happiness. Money is good for three things Ė personal security, helping others, and itís good for fun. You need to do some of all three.
What I am
about is changing my family tree. With money we can create and leave behind the training and resources to make a huge positive difference in the world. I want good people to have big piles of money in order to do good things.
This is true of my own family
, too. I donít want to leave my kids in a situation where they have lots of money and no sense of responsibility. I want to train them to be responsible and generous so they can really bust loose with that big pile of cash theyíll inherit one day. I want them to be able to have an impact three generations down the line in our own family and
to impact the world around them in a fabulous way!
