How do you like to define your wealth?
The world’s traditional perspective on economics is that WEALTH = the revenue in the society from those who trade products and runs the agricultural, industrial, religious and political wheels in each country.
For many individuals also defined as owning for example big houses, multiple cars, being able to buy a lot of stuff and just spending money on an impulse, not from a real need. This can be a very exclusive way of life-but can also become a poor way of living, if you don’t create balance in all the other aspects of a healthy and happy life.
Wealth could for a blind person mean being able to listen to music, for a deaf person being able to see the colors in nature, for a disabled person to be able enjoying a massage, for a composer creating music without struggles, for the writer getting infinite flow of words and ideas for his stories. We can literally decide design our own wealth.
From my perspective wealth can be valued in so many other dimensions too. It can have any color and be experienced with any of our senses. What I mean by this is that we all have individual contrasts and contexts of what has the most value for us. It varies with age and it changes along with our life experiences.
Back when my daughters were toddlers, I worked a full time job. So I had to leave the care of my children to other people from their age of 6 months, because I got trapped in the classical setup with work, transportation, mortgage and the needs for the daily household.
Also back then, I did not have time to visit my grandmother, we were often connected on the phone, but today 17 years after she passed away sated by days, I miss her immensely. Today I regret that I worked instead of visiting her with my beautiful daughters, whom she loved highly.
I have had several kind CEOs, interesting assignments and good colleagues during all the years. But I also did miss being a parent together with my small children in the morning. Today they are grown-ups and busy with their life and I feel the lack of funny and caring moments we could have had even more of.
If you are a parent and employed in a job, spending a lot of time away from home – wealth can be taking care of your own children and have precious moments with your elder generations in the family and being by friends.
So what does wealth means to you?
How do you define your wealth?
Are you having plenty OR are you in a need?
If I had known what I know today – I had started creating my freedom much earlier! But better late than never; the technology today offers so many possibilities and it’s even more opportune than ever for everyone to prioritize what is important to each and one of us. It’s a matter of mindset.
Designing my own wealth is a lifestile and I love it. For me it consists of 3 pillars – you guessed it, Health, Wealth and Happiness!
The best thing is that we are ready to inspire and support others doing the same.
Are you ready to make a change?
Best of Health, Wealth and Happiness
