Charlie Munger’s secrets
According to 95-year-old billionaire Charlie Munger:
The secret to a long and happy life is ‘so simple’.
As the vice chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, Munger is worth $1.7 billion, according to Forbes.
Munger has had, by almost any standard, a wildly successful life — and a long one, at that. He’s nearly a centenarian.
During an interview, people were trying to figure out what the secret to life is, to a long and happy life,”
The secret is “easy, because it’s so simple,” Munger said.
Munger went on to rattle off a list of his best advice, each lesson succinctly delivered in bite-size form.
“You don’t have a lot of envy.
“You don’t have a lot of resentment.
“You don’t overspend your income.
“You stay cheerful in spite of your troubles.
“You deal with reliable people.
“And you do what you’re supposed to do.
“And all these simple rules work so well to make your life better. And they’re so trite.”
His prescription is logical, he says.
“Staying cheerful” is “a wise thing to do,” Munger added that in order to do so, you have to let go of negative feelings.
“And can you be cheerful when you’re absolutely mired in deep hatred and resentment? Of course you can’t. So why would you take it on?” Munger said.
