How Do You Define Wealth?

January 02, 2017

Welcome back to the website blog for Secure Planning Strategies.  Recently, we created a short blog article series that discussed the importance of a healthy relationship as it relates to money.  For example, the better your relationship with money, the higher your wealth will soar.  With that being stated, let’s take a further look at wealth, what it really is and how it applies to everyday situations.    

For starters, most people have the wrong perception about the definition of wealth and what it really is.  A lot of people define wealth as the amount of money one has available to spend or utilize.  Although this is an important piece to wealth concept, it is not the end all to wealth.  The correct understanding should be that wealth is EVERYTHING a person has, not just money.  For example, you might make enough to cover monthly living costs but you have a safe home to live in and a wonderful family to love.  You are also brilliantly smart and you have the ability to soulfully share your knowledge with others to help your fellow man.     

The next point to consider is that the same people that think that wealth only pertains to money and go after and chase the dollar as if it is the only thing that’s important.  They feel as though money is the only form of validation as it gives the person a sense of value and self-worth. This is wrong because, for one, if you are living your true life’s purpose, money will follow you because it will be drawn to the passion and energy that you radiate throughout your life.  Also, money is only a tool to get something done and it’s not wise to base your self-worth on a tool. 

There’s a lot of value in the other aspects to your life and you should think about how you define wealth and how you utilize wealth in you daily situations.  Empower yourself by possessing more wealth in all areas of your life, not just with money.  Think about all the good you have and how it all adds value to you.
