True wealth is having a sense of abundance – one that we experience rather than possess. Obviously, having enough money to provide a roof over our heads, secure sufficient food and clothing and other basic essentials, and raise healthy and happy families frees us from a lot of anxiety.
Seeking true wealth may mean seeking deeper relationships, more personal growth, or ways to create more meaning in life. Achieving true wealth means possessing the ability to enjoy the small, ordinary pleasures of life. Each precious, present moment can be enjoyed. To be wealthy is to be in life and to appreciate all aspects of it. It’s to be self-aware, live with purpose, and be committed not only to one’s own happiness but to helping others find theirs.
A list of true wealth assets would likely include family, friends, education, talents, experience, connection to community, self-esteem, the ability to help others, and good health (with some luck and good sense). All of these wealth assets contribute to an overall personal sense of well-being. It also includes the ability to earn more money. This book throws more light on how to get money and how to channel the money into the right investment that will warrant the future security of one’s fortunes.
