Examples of derived in a Sentence

  2. Prashant Agarwal:

    What is wealth without peace of mind? Often we chase after riches, thinking that amassing a pile of money will bring us satisfaction. However, when that sum is acquired, we tend to feel that no, this is not enough. We need to earn some more. And then, even more. Then one day, we leave this earth, not taking with us the fortune that we amassed, but with a sense of dissatisfaction of a life not lived right, of goals left unachieved. The goal of life should be to earn satisfaction first. Wealth is necessary, of course, but even more, importance is wealth earned with satisfaction. Wealth may come and go, but happiness derived from our actions and deeds lasts for a lifetime. So try to look at what you already achieved, focus on the positives in your life. Build up relationships. Take time for yourself, to look around, breathe, and appreciate what you have. Connect with your true self to realize what makes you happy, and walk down that path without the fear of judgment. Live YOUR best life. Value yourself and value your blessings. You will be the wealthiest man on earth.
