What Is Your Definition Of Wealth?

Last Update: February 12, 2020

Hi there

What is your definition of wealth? The accumulation of money, success with your business, or having enough to retire comfortably?

Today, I want to offer you a definition to contemplate as you go along your days here in WA:

Wealth: The ease and freedom to be generous, the ease and freedom to to pursue your dreams, the ease and freedom to uplift others.

If you look at it this way, you are already wealthy. You are already blessed with the ability to be generous, the ability to persue your dreams, and the privilige to uplift those around you.

Question:

What is your definition of wealth? By what standards are you measuring your wealth?

Blessings!

What a subjective concept… To me wells is having enough to live and to help others. But, my standard of having enough to live is certainly different than that standard and some other parts of the world. I think that many who consider themselves poor in North America would be wealthy in other parts of the world.

yes, indeed it is very subjective! Not only in regards to our location, and culture but also in regards to our personal priorities. I am sure that I have a completely different definition of wealth than someone who is a part of the tiny house community for example.

I'd say monetary wealth is having more money than you need. So wealth is being blessed beyond our needs with whatever.

Blessed beyond our needs, I like that - yes, because of that we can bless others. If we are blessed in love, we can give more, if we are blessed in community, it is easier to give others a sense of community and belonging. It is so much more than money - blessings!

Claudia,
Very interesting question.
I would have to say my definition of wealth is to able to live comfortably. No, mortgage, no credit card debt, a very comfortable home with a nice yard for Chance to have room to run and play.

And just enough to ensure that my kids are living comfortably when I'm gone from this earth.

Comfort, yes, that is a great definition, no worries about the little things that occupy our mind so often, comfort, freedom, and security.
Blessings!

Most of the time I think that wealthy means if someone is not worried about the expanses. But it is now true. It doesn't feel right especially after reading your post. I think we must always manage our finances without worrying. So a worry can not define it. I think feeling satisfied, thankful, and appreciative makes us wealthy. Being generous comes with the love and care for others and feeling of inner fulfilment.
Great thoughts!
