The world’s most expensive car is Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita – it costs $4.8 million. According to Koenigsegg website, the model has a unique coated fiber solution that transforms its fibers from black to a sparkling, silvery white. When sunlight hits the Trevita, it sparkles as if millions of tiny white diamonds are infused inside the visible carbon fiber bodywork.The Trevita was originally intended to be a limited edition of three examples. The white carbon fiber used for the Trevita made the car extremely difficult and time consuming to manufacture, and a decision was taken to make the car even more exclusive and limit the number of Trevitas made to just two.
As expensive as Trevita is – $4.8M, for crying out loud, tell me if you will trade your life for it, or trade any life for it, if you’re in your right mind. Of course, no! Therefore, be grateful for making it this far this year – be very thankful.
Buckingham Palace has 775 rooms, 188 staff rooms, including 52 royal and guest bedrooms, 92 offices, 78 bathrooms, and 19 staterooms. It is valued for $1.55B, making it the world’s most expensive house. God forbid – if you say to the Queen, your building or your life, as a very wise woman, who I hold in high esteem, I know she’ll say to the idiot, take the building, but let me have my life, in spite of her age. So, when people fight and die over properties that are worth nothing compared to Buckingham Palace, I wonder if they value the very essence of life. Even if you’re homeless, no home compares to your life, be grateful for the very breath that comes out of your nostrils – be very thankful!
In November 2017, Leonardo da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi was sold for $450M in New York, making it the most expensive artwork ever. This same artwork was sold in the 1950s for £45 when it was mistaken for a copy. It only took only 19 minutes of bidding in Christie’s, New York to get it sold. The total price, including fees paid by the winner to the auction house was $450,312, 500. Leonardo da Vinci died 2 May, 1519. If he was still here, he would prefer to lose his artworks to his life, no matter how expensive they are. Yet, some are alive but still ungrateful for the breath that goes through their nostrils. How many expensive artworks equate your life? Is it 10, 20, or 30? Of course, none! So, be grateful for where you are because life is richer than money. Remember, a living dog is greater than a dead lion.
The world’s most expensive wrist watch costs $55M. It has over 110 carats of coloured diamonds set into a bracelet of platinum. The name is Graff Diamond Hallucination. The world’s most expensive phone is Falcon Supernova iPhone 6 Pink Diamond belonging to Nita Ambani, the wife of the Indian businessman, Muskesh Ambani. It costs $48.5M, and has 24-carat gold and pink goals with a gigantic diamond on the back as well as a platinum coating and hack protection.
Let’s talk about shoes: the world’s most expensive shoe is Debbie Wingham High Heel worth $15.1M. It is made of blue and pink diamonds, while the body is crafted from platinum, and the plaque is pure gold. The remainder of these shoes is made of leather but feature 24 carat gold paint – 18 carat gold thread was used for sewing the shoes. To me, that’s a waste of money. In spite of how ostentatious these items may be, who would trade his breath for them? I don’t think anyone would do it except something isn’t right upstairs. Be thankful for your life because not a billion of those items compare to one breath of your life. Next time you go moaning, think of what you have that money cannot buy and appreciate the privilege to be alive. You are not alive because you’re the richest – so many rich people died this year, in spite of having access to the best medical care. You’re not alive because you’re the smartest – so many brains from the best universities and research institutes died this year. You’re not alive because you prayed more than everybody – there are more praying people that passed away, still on their knees. You’re alive because you’re destined to be, so appreciate it, cherish it, and move on. Move without animosity. Move like someone with a job to do – you are on a mission – unfold your call and let it make a meaning to humanity. Love life – live life – put your best into life. It’s the best way to be happy. I repeat, it is the best way to be happy. Make yourself happy!
