Why be rich? So how does that question land on you?
Your visceral, gut reaction will tell you a lot about your core beliefs on money. If your first reaction is to start validating why it’s not important to be rich, watch out.
Oh, I’ve heard all the excuses: It’s just money and things. You don’t need money to be happy. You’re not defined by your net worth. I know rich people and they’re miserable. Money doesn’t buy happiness.
It’s true: Money doesn’t buy happiness. News flash: poverty doesn’t buy happiness either. So if your first reaction was to make one of the validations above, you may want to question whether your belief is really serving you.
Why be rich?
Because it offers choices. Because it can provide freedom and security. Because it offers countless opportunities to make a difference in the world. Because being rich beats being broke any day of the week. But most of all…
Because the best reward of being rich – is who you have to become to get there.
