Your purpose for living determines the decisions you make in life. That is one of the general principles of life. Like the bible says that a good name is better than riches, for you to build a good name is based on the decisions you make daily, and to get riches also depends on the decisions you make daily.
To have a good name means having a good reputation that precedes you, it’s all about being known for something good. For instance, you may be an excellent doctor, a renowned life coach, a successful engineer, a successful trainer, or the CEO of a big organization. That which you do to affect the lives of others is the good name you are known for.
What most people don’t know is that a good name comes with riches too. So why sell your soul just to get rich when you can actually build a good name and the riches will also follow.
Living to make money is good but there is a greater purpose than making money.
