People have different priorities..
Some are concerned about their careers and go to great lengths to become better at what they do.
There are others who are fueled by their hunger for power, and wish to be more and do more.

Sadly, few people prioritize health, but it is important for us to realize that health truly is wealth.
The World Health Organization defines health not just as the absence of disease, but a complete physical, spiritual and mental wellbeing. You can feel your best; think that you are well enough, and yet your health may already be critical.
Maintaining order rather than correcting disorder is the ultimate principle of wisdom. to cure disease after it has appeared is like digging a well when one feels thirsty, or forging weapons after the was has already begun.
Nei Jing (2nd century BC)
