Who is rich?
Who is poor?
What is it that defines these terms? Money? Standard of living? What?
Let me help you out a little…
“Don’t think money does everything
You will end up doing everything for money.”
If you wake up with a smile, you are rich.
If you are happy with the work you do, you are rich.
If you have friends, you are rich.
If you have a family, you are rich.
If you have someone to love, if there is someone who loves you, you are rich.
If you sleep peacefully at night, you are rich.
If you are satisfied with what you have, you are rich.
If you are in harmony with yourself, you are rich.
If you are content with your life, you are rich.
If you laugh from your heart, you are rich.
If you feel empathy, you are rich.
If you believe in yourself, you are rich.
One doesn’t need a fat bank balance to be rich, no. This is a pure myth.
In fact with a bigger bank balance comes bigger responsibilities and tensions.
Many of you may say, I am rich, I party so frequently, I am happy and I sleep well too… but do you remember the last time you woke up with a smile on your face and without a headache? The most common answer would be No.
Money cannot buy you happiness, it can buy you things that could make you happy, but does such a happiness last for long? No, we both know, it doesn’t.
Happiness cannot be bought. It comes from within.
Today, you, me, half of the world have the awesome-st gadgets and an internet access, everything is at our finger tips… but I would not hesitate to call us ‘The Privileged Poor’.
