Dream. Believe. Create and Succeed.

Your wealth has nothing to do with your bank account. Your riches have nothing to do with dollars. Dollars are just pieces of paper that will eventually be traded for things.

The true measure of your wealth is for you to determine. Your true wealth is whatever you value most deeply. It is whatever makes you feel complete as a person. Your wealth makes you feel as if money doesn't even matter. The best kind of wealth is that which you have a say over.

It's in your hands. You can determine just how wealthy you are as long as you take control of the things that make you feel wealthy. It's that simple. If your feeling of wealth relies on other people, or relies on some kind of validation, then it's not in your control. In that case, you needs to the cards to be dealt in your favor in order to feel wealthy and be happy.

But if your feeling of wealth is dependent on things in your direct control--whatever they may be--then you can always turn to this feeling in times of need. Your wealth is not related to dollars and cents; it's related to your desire to be happy and to live a life of value.

There is no shortcut to this kind of wealth. It must be earned through a personal embodiment of everything you stand for. In other words, be you. Do what you do. And do it to the best of your ability, in a way that makes you proud to be one of the wealthiest people in the world. Live your values.

Best Wishes.

  • Hi Charles

    Very interesting and thought provoking!  Your post reminded me of a quote I once read- I am trying to find the author but could not find it.

    "The wealthiest man is content with his portion" or A wealthy man is content with his portion.

  • This is an interesting concept. I do however disagree with one thing that you said. You said that wealth has to be under your direct control. While I would agree that wealth is not contingent upon others for validation,  I would point out that I strive to be the best person I can, and therefore amass what I consider to be something that I consider wealth. It is called friendship. This is what makes me happy. To have admiration of others not based on any monetary issues. To live my life what I consider to be the right way. People my not always agree with me, but as you said, I have been happy with the results I have gotten.
