For many years no matter how much money I made, I didn’t feel rich. It was frustrating because while I was pursuing wealth, I realized I had not defined it, which made it perpetually out of reach.
Which brings up the question, how do you know if you’re rich?
Rich is always relative, so what/who are you comparing yourself to as you evaluate the question?
I’ll bet compared to a couple generations before you, you’re incredibly rich.
The UN recently reported 37% of the world’s population has never used the internet. You’re impossibly rich to them.
And then there is the fact that being rich doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with money. I recently sprained my foot. The experience has made me feel rich in health because I don’t have serious physical challenges.
In considering the question “are you rich?”, Gary Keller of Keller Williams recently posed 5 questions that I thought you’d appreciate.
- What does money mean to you?
- Why do you want it?
- How much money do you have?
- What do you do with it?
- How much more do you need?
Respond back, let me know how you define rich, and I’ll share a few comments next week.
