Thank you, D.O.C. I agree, business and wealth aren’t everything (although I’m not sure any of the books referenced materialism?).

Admittedly, the article did have a strong focus on wealth. However, I would argue achieving excellence in business, and wealth in itself (gained in the right way) both require paradigm shifts that ultimately benefit the individual in enormous ways. It requires intense learning, poise, patience, and grit, which all make an individual’s life better.

Thank you again for the feedback.
