Wealth is more than just dollars and cents. Wealth is a lifestyle as well. I recommend you start experiencing it if you haven’t done so already. It’s great. Whether you define yourself as “poor” or as “rich” or even anywhere in between, the wealthy lifestyle isn’t beyond your reach.
If this intrigues you, then I suggest you write down what you entail as a wealthy lifestyle. Or, at least, what you think a wealthy person does, or would do. Yeah, I mean, for fun. So write it down, let it be a whole list of activities and such from the extravagant to the simple, and everything in between. Once you have about 100 or so different things on your piece of paper, continue reading.
I mean, I don’t know, for some it’s money that’s stopping them (the “lack” of it? Or perhaps social constructs? They can’t find the right people?
Ok, let’s pretend it’s the money that’s the issue here (I’ll address others in a later blog post if you tell me to in the comments section below). Lets pretend you have a budget, due to some circumstances with your business affairs, and you are launching a new product soon; you’ve set yourself a daily budget on what you can spend on leisure.
Next, calculate what you need to do in order to participate in these activates. You might find that some activities you can do right away, and some which require more planning and setting aside some of that daily budget for a bigger more grandeur activity such as, perhaps, traveling.
You can go biking, or skating today, and go travel tomorrow 🙂 Just remember to have fun, do the things you love, and keep a smile on your face.
Of-course, need I warn you, that this process could spark ambition in your life. If you are already having fun, and are already doing the things you love, but are looking for new adventures, then think and find out about new things that you would like to do. If you have the means to do so, then great, you have just leaped into a new realm of adventure. On the other hand, if you lack the means (time/money) now you know of the things you would like to do, so you have all the more reasons to either free up some time (read The Four Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss) or go out there, into the world, and create something that helps humanity, for example, in order for you to live a life that you enjoy. The world is thus a happier place, you have just found purpose in your life and discovered happiness.
All The Best
