What is Wealth Really?



(noun) welTH
:An abundance of valuable possessions or money:
:abundant supply:
Stemming from the Middle English for well, or happiness.

“The definition of wealth is the number of days you can survive without physically working (or anyone in your household physically working) and still maintain your standard of living.”
-Robert Kiyosaki, -Author of “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”


“Abundance is not something we acquire, it is something we tune into.”
-Dr. Wayne Dyer


Wealth means having abundance. Building wealth means rearranging your life to accommodate for abundance. How do you do this? It all starts with you. Not a paycheck, not a better job, not a stroke of luck. You and your mind, first.

Right now, you’re thinking that wealth is only a physical, tangible thing you acquire over time. That’s not the whole picture. Wealth is first and foremost, a mindset. Before you figure out what you want to do and how much you want to make, figure out who you want to be and how you want to enjoy your life.

So, we know how to define wealth, but what does it provide besides growth and money?


(noun)  free·dom \ˈfrē-dəm\
:the absence of necessity, coercion or constraint, in choice or action

Freedom to spend time with your family and friends, freedom to make decisions that enhance your life, and freedom from financial limitations.

No matter where you are on the path to building wealth, whether it’s removing debt, expanding your company with smarter, more efficient practices, or investing in another stream of income, you can start enjoying freedom now. GIve yourself the freedom to decide exactly what you want and choose exactly how you want to get there.

Treat yourself to the freedom from other people’s opinions, from perceived limitations, and from keeping up with what others deem “rich.”

Find what you love to do and enjoy the abundance when you immerse yourself in it. Figure out how to get better at it and embrace the failures and wins when you improve upon it. Discover the growth and success you experience even if it’s one tiny step forward. These are all habits that create wealth, and ultimately… freedom.

In the upcoming book, Wealth Can’t Wait, Paul Morris and David Osborn delve deeper into the process of building wealth and creating freedom in your life. Pre-order it today and you’ll have already taken the first step. Doesn’t it feel good?
