Recently, in an informative interview with Economic Times, one of India’s most successful investors Rakesh Jhunjhunwala – said something that really stood out.
The ace investor said “My worst investment has been my health. I would encourage everybody to invest the most in that”
Clearly, the man who is worth more than ₹ 21,000 crore, isn’t happy about his health. He has all the riches in the world, but he advices others to invest the most in health.
The world that we live in today, most of us spend almost our entire lives accumulating wealth. Only to reach a stage where we have a lot of money, but not health to enjoy the accumulated wealth.

Trying to achieve the right balance between health, wealth, mental peace and anything else that’s important to you – is the key to a fulfilling life. Over-obessising over anything, will ensure that you don’t enjoy the journey of life.
