Michael Thomas
“I want to be happy by doing well by doing good.” —Michael Thomas
“My philosophy, in essence, is the concept of man as a heroic being, with his own happiness as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievement as his noblest activity, and reason as his only absolute.” — Ayn Rand
“My life’s philosophy is the operating system of my mind. It is my 'sense of life'”. —Michael Thomas

My Philosophy

I am a connoisseur of the art of self-Improvement. I am a German-American and support the original principles of America: freedom, liberty, individual rights, free-enterprise and capitalism.

I try to live a Quantified, Uncluttered, Minimalist, and Simplified, but a High-End Life. The less you have, the more you value it.

I work to sustain a high level of self-esteem, which is derived from living up to my values, principles and beliefs.

Six Life's Areas

I work to sustain a high level of self-esteem, which is derived from living up to my values, principles and beliefs, and the continuing development of my six life-roles:

1. Philosophy

2. Health

3. Finances

4. Entrepreneurship

5. Relationships: My mission is to act as an instrument of positive change in my family, friends, relationships and community. And to enjoy the reciprocal thereof.

6. Pleasures: I want to enjoy the finer delicacies that life has to offer. I love the beauty of everything that's refined.

We will continue to nurture our life-long friendship and will never lose sight of the fact that we are more than just individuals; we are partners.
