Do you want to be rich?

Do you want to be wealthy?

There is a difference.

If you’re rich, you have a lot of money, but if you’re wealthy, you have internal and external riches. And guess what, you’re already wealthy.

You have your health.

You have your family.

You have your house.

You have your friends.

The more money you have, the more you seem to want.

“Money cannot buy security, because security is a psychological state. To some, it means having enough food to eat, clothing on your back, a shelter over your head, or someone who loves you. To others, security requires millions of dollars in tax-free accounts around the world.

Money can’t buy happiness, either. In one telephone survey, 275 people in the San Francisco Bay area were asked if they believed that they would be significantly happier if they had a million dollars. Seventy-six percent of the respondents replied, ‘Yes. Absolutely.’ Then the research company contacted ten millionaires and asked then, ‘Did making your first million dollars make you a happier person?’ The response was unanimous: ‘No.’

The best things in life – the sun in the morning and the moon at night – are free. And money doesn’t guarantee happiness.”

(From “Everyday Enlightenment” by Dan Millman)

Stop searching for money and start searching for meaning.

Be grateful, appreciate all the beauty around you, help others, and live for today.

That’s wealth.
