Several developers have been encouraging me to let them in on who Mr. B is and if there is a quicker way to read the entire interview.
To tell you the truth, I would like to speed this up, because I've got so much more to share.
I'm not prepared to publish the First Edition Interview with Mr. B quite yet... but that should be resolved soon.
Another refresher: Mr. B. has already voiced his viewpoints about the value of a soul, discussed success, spending habits, and now his comments about the foundation of success.
What do you consider to be the foundation of success?
The foundation of success in life is good health: that is the substratum fortune; it is also the basis of happiness. A person cannot accumulate a fortune very well when he is sick. He has no ambition; no incentive; no force. Of course, there are those who have bad health and cannot help it: you cannot expect that such persons can accumulate wealth, but there are a great many in poor health who need not be so.
If, then, sound health is the foundation of success and happiness in life, how important it is that we should study the laws of health, which is but another expression of the laws of nature! The nearer we keep to the laws of nature, the nearer we are to good health, and yet how many persons there are who pay no attention to natural laws, but absolutely transgress them, even against their own natural inclination. We ought to know that the "sin of ignorance" is never winked at in regard to the violation of nature's laws; their infraction always brings the penalty.
You're so right! Health does make a difference. I know I need to change some eating habits and exercise more. My wife has been collecting recipes and I've been encouraging her to compile some cookbooks and maybe a web business. Maybe I can get her to start cooking those recipes instead of us eating out so often.
In the next article about Mr. B's Interview... I will let you know what he outlines as The Twenty Points of Attention that has brought him success in many business ventures.
As always... I appreciate you and encourage you to suggest questions you want answered.
Until next time...
