Very interesting question. I’ve a question also. What sense does the word “rich” make to you ??
If it means the networth or wealth, it’s a comparative salutation. You’re rich to those who has lower volume of wealth than you. But in comparison to billionaires, the scenario is reverse.
Now in life, whether you’re rich or not can be measured by some questions.
Do you live under roof ??
Do you have stomach full of food?
Do you possess head high status in life?
Do you have friend or friends to share moments?
Do you have the authority to decide about self ?
Do you have loving and understanding family ?
Do you spend quality times with family and friends ?
Do you have the courage to face any failure and learn from it ?
Do you enjoy sound sleep ?
Do you get up in the morning with smiling face ?
Do you know how to minimize regrets?
Do you enjoy company of self ??
Look, no life is ideal. We all have different struggle in daily life. We love, we quarrel, we forget, we err. But end of the day if we can have a good rest not spoilt by unnecessary demands or worries, we feel relieved, we feel free, we feel happy. That’s the achievement you can’t buy in lieu of money.
So, if 85% of answer is affirmative in case of you, you’re living King size life. Your wealth doesn’t have any important role to play…
