Mike Tyson remains as philosophical as ever.
On a recent episode of his podcast, the boxing legend had Sean McFarland, a therapist who specializes in trauma and addiction, as his guest.
During the episode, the topic of death came up and Tyson revealed how he felt he was inching closer to death whenever he looked at himself in the mirror.
“We’re all gonna die one day of course,” Tyson said on his podcast (via The New York Post). “Then, when I look in the mirror, I see those little spots on my face, I say, ‘Wow. That means my expiration date is coming close, really soon.’”
Mike Tyson: Money Doesn’t Provide Security
Of course, Tyson remains in good shape at the age of 56 and has been living relatively healthy for the last few years.
However, anything can happen in life, which is why no matter how much money he makes from his many ventures, Tyson doesn’t view money in the same way as others.
In fact, he believes money provides a false sense of security.
“Money don’t mean s–t to me,” Tyson said. “I always tell people — they think money’s gonna make them happy, they’ve never had money before — when you have a lot of money, you can’t expect nobody to love you. How am I gonna confess my love to you when you have $500 billion?
“The false sense of security. You believe nothing can happen. You don’t believe the banks could collapse. You believe that you’re invincible when you have a lot of money, which isn’t true. That’s why I always say money is a false sense of security.”
“… What is security? I don’t know. When you put money in your bank and you get a check every week and you can live for the rest of your life, is that security? That means you won’t catch a disease, you can’t get hit by a car? You can’t jump off a bridge. I don’t know. Is that security? Can money secure you from that?”
