But I don’t spend money on myself. I don’t like myself enough yet. But the people I love, I like spending the cash on them.” – Adam Sandler
“I mean, I look at my dad. He was twenty when he started having a family, and he was always the coolest dad. He did everything for his kids, and he never made us feel like he was pressured. I know that it must be a great feeling to be a guy like that.” – Adam Sandler

Now that you know all about Adam Sandler’s net worth, and how they achieved success; let’s take a look at some of the lessons we can learn from them:
1. Money and power aren’t everything
Even if you have all the money in the world, it won’t necessarily buy you happiness. You should never let money change who you are at your core. No matter how much money or power you have, stay humble and true to yourself.
2. Don’t ever let anything stand in your way
In our lives and careers, we will often come across people who underestimate us and think that we are not capable of achieving great things. But sometimes it is easier to work harder when we know that people are not expecting much from us, and the simple act of proving them wrong can often offer all the motivation we need.
3. Make the most of second chances
There are times in life when we are faced with an opportunity for a second chance at something we may not have enjoyed the first time around, but also may not have gained everything that we could have from it.
When given this rare opportunity, it is important to do our best to make it better than the first. Learning from our mistakes is often the biggest life lesson of all.
