Riches lie within us, not in material possessions. Our real riches are riches of the head and heart. Satisfaction comes from appreciating what we have. Wealth without enjoyment is little consolation. Our real prosperity lies in being thankful.
That is to push the point that if one wants to be successful in life one needs to command one''s attitude that comes out of Experience, Education and Environment. And experience is one thing that can never come out of nothing. So if you really aspire to making it to the summit - start taking life as it comes. Bon voyage.
