Thursday May 11, 2006 Wealth
You're as rich as you think you are. Wealth is an attitude. When you were small, a dollar was wealth and you planned all that you could buy with your money. As you grew the amount that satisfied this wealthy feeling grew also. How much is enough? It all depends on how much “stuff” you want to carry with you. If your requirements are minimal and your expectations small, you are probably already wealthy and happy. If your expectations are way out of line with your life, you will probably always be poor and miserable. Simplify and enjoy the wealth you have. You will always be richer than some and poorer than others. The trick is to be happy with where you are. When life is over and you leave, you carry no baggage – all that you acquired is left behind. If you leave a miserable life, it's your fault. Take stock of what you have and what you have gained in the years you have spent on this earth and enjoy what there is.
