Felix Dennis, founder of Maxim Magazine and author of the book “How To Get Rich,” was worth a total of $300 million.
Financially, he was very successful, but Dennis didn’t have a love life. He felt lonely, and towards the end of his life questioned whether all of his success was even worth it.
According to recent surveys, 40% of adults feel lonely. These people, including Felix Dennis, might say that making money is easy, but that finding love is very difficult.
On the other side of this question, you see marriages that are filled with love constantly end in divorce as a result of having a lack of money.
These people might say that finding love was easy, but that making money is what’s hard.
Understand that when I ask, “Is finding love harder?” I don’t mean love as in someone you marry and then divorce after 10 years of being with each other.
When I say love, I mean lifelong love.
Finding someone you have a strong and engaging relationship with that lasts a lifetime can be more difficult simply because it requires a mutual feeling between two people, while making $1,000,000 is solely dependent on your own effort.
But in order to make $1,000,000, you have to basically rewire your brain. You have to unlearn almost every single thing that you’ve been taught in life, and you have to learn to face your fears.
Understanding which one is harder for you to find I think can help you put these two goals into perspective.
Let me know what you think is harder, making a $1,000,000 or finding the love of your life?
