Most people have a goal in life and they want to be rich and grow up working towards achieving both. Some people are happy moving through life paying the bills and working to eat. What if we worked to enjoy life though or to enrichen our lot?
What does it mean to be rich
This really depends on what you think rich means. Does it mean materially rich or spiritually rich? Does it mean full? Over the years I think feeling or being rich has become convoluted to the extent that people really associate being rich with being materially wealthy. But you don’t enrichen yourself with money.
When I grow up I want to be rich
When I was a child I wanted to be rich. Who doesn’t? I wanted to have the money to afford a nice house and nice things. When you think these things when you are 15 you think that being grown up is a long way off. By the time you are 30 you believe you will be earning a thousand pounds a month and then you will be rich.
Jobs are easy to come by as there couldn’t be anyone possibly as passionate as you about that goal. You’ve spent your life so far building you to this haven’t you?
Now im grown up I’m not rich
I’m not rich. I’m not materially rich but my life is enriched by the struggles I didn’t think I’d face. It’s good to face the reality as richness doesn’t come from your bank balance; it comes from your creativity. Thinking about ways to get richer or improve is never a bad thing but wouldn’t it be boring if there was never anything to save for or work toward?
Tips to get rich quicker
- Ask yourself why you feel grateful today
- Read a book you’ve been meaning to read
- Try something new be it a sport or just getting out and not looking at social media for a day
- Try a new skincare product
- Do something kind for someone else
- Buy a chocolate bar – strange one but it actually makes me feel so happy!
