Which one would you rather be?
Rich: Anybody can do this and blow it all in no time, and have nothing to show for.
Wealthy: Few become and many more should try harder to be. Helping others achive their goals and dreams and leaving a legacy behind them.
hm... for me, I've always seen the two as the same thing but that might just be me. To be rich or wealthy would be nice but I can't say I've always wanted to be that.
My goal is/has been to be successful - to be financially comfortable and to make a living without living life only making money. I never want to live on paycheck to paycheck like I've witnessed so many other people do. Yet, I don't like the idea of saving every single penny without spending any on myself either. That's why I'm very into budgeting - I like knowing how I spend my money as well as knowing how much I am able to save. I still cannot claim to be successful but I know it's possible.
As far as helping others achieve their goals and dreams... for me, the only way to do this is to set myself as an example and encourage them to fulfill their hopes and dreams.
I am actually very fortunate, I feel like that, because I am having really incredible experiences in life. I would say I am totally rich. I am earning about £28,000 a year, and that is much more than I need. In absolute terms, it is a huge amount of money. If one takes the cost of life in UK into account, then it is not so much...
But, I remark, it is more than I need.
In any case, this is just a means to live. And, as a friend just told me not long ago, many times we worry about something... "it's just money" oh my friends, that is QUITE A SENTENCE!!!
Indeed, what I am experiencing at the moment, is that LIFE makes sense by itself. And, money just don't exist. Matter just don't exist as we perceive. What does exist is energy going here and there, learning here and there... and that is GOOD.
Then, I am really fortunate because I am able to learn many things here where I live, and with the people I am in contact with. And, that is something real.
Thank you for reading.
