Aristotle was a proponent of something called The Golden Mean – the desirable middle between two extremes.
The idea is that many virtues, taken to extremes can turn into vices.
Courage for example, without restraint, can turn into recklessness.
This idea has come to form a valuable part of my philosophy relating to wealth and income generation.
How much money should you endeavor to accumulate?
How much money should you charge your clients & customers for products & services?
What Napoleon Hill said in his last book, makes an awful lot of sense to me.
“Not too much, not too little.”
Too little wealth and it’s hard to enjoy a worthy degree of freedom & peace of mind.
And on the flip side, striving to earn or even earning too much, can rob your freedom and peace of mind.
Aristotle & Napoleon Hill, maybe these 2 wise guys were onto something. 🙂
