Fast forward 5 years and Jordan was in jail, as he expected he would be, divorced from his beautiful wife and separated from his daughter and with a $100 million dollar debt. I suppose you would expect the ending. Most, even he himself, could see the end coming. But he still worshipped the money more than the love of his wife and daughter, more than his family. The story of Jordan Belfort is all too common. It's common cents. Cents and dollars are a man made definition of a tool we use to value our material possessions. It is modern evil in many ways. It makes people greedy. Materialistic monsters dominate our lives. Money makes us lose sight of the importance of life. I was on the same gravy train. The figures of abundance were a lot different but the result was the same. I got greedy. I lost, just like Jordan and millions of others before us. Unfortunately we need MONEY, well at least we think we do. Once you adjust you can do without.
I have diligently prepared my journey, my comeback. And I am doing all of the right things to make it happen. But it's funny you know. While I am still in survival mode, existing day to day, it is lack of money that is stopping the journey from happening a lot faster. But it just doesn't matter. I KNOW where I am heading. And I KNOW I will get there. WHEN??? just doesn't figure in it. Money is simply a tool to measure value. Little money, little value. Lots of money, lots of value, right?
Big money, big house, huh?
Little money, little tent, huh?
Does it matter? I suppose it gets down to who's asking, Jordan Belfort or me!
I like my journey a lot more than his........... it's
