what is something that you can accumulate that no-one else can steal?

One of the many things I love about my Toastmasters club is hearing stories from fellow Toastmasters; seemingly ordinary people often with extraordinary life stories. Maurice grew up as a poor child in Sri Lanka. He worried about accumulating things as these would inevitably be stolen from him. So he spent his money accumulating knowledge through eduction. This allowed him to eventually migrate to Australia.

One thought on “what is something that you can accumulate that no-one else can steal?”

  1. What a perspective! Although I can’t imagine growing up in such an environment, I grew up with an emphasis placed on spending money on experiences instead of things. I’m grateful for the memories and skills that I gained from those experiences.
