On occasion, I get a chance to practice my speaking skills and share the things that are on my heart and mind. This is a speech I gave a few weeks ago that got a lot of positive feedback so I thought I’d share it here in hopes that it might benefit others. It has helped me to refocus and re-evaluate my priorities.
Who Wants to be a Lifeonaire?
By Peter Chung
We’ve all heard the phrase, “Who wants to be a millionaire?” And every one of us has probably raised their hand to that question in one way or another. The millionaire culture that has become such an influence in our society today has caused us to lose sight of the things that are truly important. The question that I’d like you to consider today is, “Who wants to be a Lifeonaire?”
We all know what a millionaire is, but “What’s a Lifeonaire?” you ask. As you may have gathered already, a millionaire is a person who has an abundance of money. Likewise, a lifeonaire is a person who is full of life!
Steve Cook, a friend and teacher who coined this phrase defines it: “A Lifeonaire is someone who desires a full life and is free to seek it, pursue it, share it, and attain it. They have the joy and peace of knowing that they are doing what they are supposed to be doing.”
