Don’t destroy yourself in the race to win big in life

I used to work usually 12 – 14 hours every day. My father stayed with me for some time. He observed me every day going early to work and returning very late. One day he asked: “Are you running away from me or genuinely, you work so much?”
My wife echoed her opinion saying that I am coming a bit earlier because of my father.
He stated: “Today, you are working hard to make money. Tomorrow you will need to work harder to arrange the money for medical expenses.”
His thoughts changed my lifestyle and working habits forever.
Most people write “think big,” “change the world,” “be prudent,” “work hard,” “peddle fast and focus,” as a must for becoming a successful entrepreneur.
It makes you so stressed that you start putting in extra hours, stop caring about your health, and struggle to stay closer to your loved ones.
Don’t kill yourself — you have chosen to become an entrepreneur to create a more meaningful life. If you feel down and out, stop it.
A relaxed body and calm mind boost concentration, attention, decision-making skills, creativity, social skills, and better health and decrease mood fluctuations, stress, anger, and impulsiveness.
