Friends, over the course of my very long life, I made the decision to turn my back on the more traditional measures of success.
I've never desired possessions. I don't seek out wealth. I've never wanted power.
Instead, I've found my happiness in the people around me. My friends, my family, and my loved ones.
So when you're evaluating your own life, remember, that true wealth is measured by the people you love and those that love you in return. Not by the things you have.
Of course, a bag or two of beef jerky never hurt anyone.
