EPISODE 254 People are thinking about wealth differently than they ever have in the past. How do your choices change and the way you perceive your life and opportunities when you perceive yourself as wealthy?
STUFF WE LEARN IN THIS EPISODE
What does rich look like to you?
“I could buy a boat.”
“I could take time off.”
“I didn’t have to worry about paying my bills.”
“I bought a car that was as much as a house.”
“I went out to eat and looked at the menu and not the prices.”
Most of us live similar lives, no matter where we live. We get up, go to work, have families and homes to take care of. We have similar worries, eat a few meals a day, the human condition gives us much in common.
On the other hand many wealthy individuals have expressed how they often feel overwhelmed by having so many responsibilities and things to take care. They expressed a desire to live a more simply life. If you consider the friends, family and experiences that you have, you will see that you are truly wealthy, no matter how much you money you make. The things that make us feel wealthy are friends, family, helping others and developing and enjoying our talents. Most of these money can’t buy.
Buying things is a short-lived feeling, it comes and goes. Loving your job and what you do will make you feel wealthy. There isn’t anything better than spending time with friends and family while doing the things you love.
When things go wrong, what can you count on? Those are the things that really matter. Have a great day and GET RICH! And Yes, that great picture is our beloved, AWESOME Emily!
