Chasing the American Dream. It's what life is about, right? I think there is a whole other world that gets missed out on, while working endless hours to make ends meet, grow a start-up business, among many others. It's the wealth we all have no matter what position we are playing.
The Wealth Wall Street Can't Touch
By Michael Hyatt on MichaelHyatt.com
I watched in amazement this week as the stock market continued its downward slide. Every time I checked the news, I braced myself for increasingly dire reports. When the market finally closed on Friday afternoon, I breathed a sigh of relief, thankful that the DOW did not end below 8,000 points.
While the week’s drama had been unfolding on Wall Street, Gail and I were safely tucked away in the Rocky Mountains, spending a few days with several dear friends and industry leaders. Naturally, we talked about the financial crisis, but we also shared some wonderful times of fellowship. We spent most of our time talking about more transcendent issues—things that matter deeply to each of us.
By Friday evening, everyone had left except us and our hosts, Rick and Debbie. About 5:00 p.m., the four of us drove into the Rocky Mountain National Park to see if we could catch a glimpse of the giant elk that roam the forests and meadows like ghosts. We hoped that we might even hear the elk “bugling,” something they only do during the mating season.
