Are You Impoverished?
Firstly, what does the Collins Dictionary define impoverished as?
"One of the most impoverished suburbs of the cityan attempt to lure businesses into impoverished."
"The sparse vegetation clearly has a tough time extracting the most meagre rations from its impoverished soil."
To me, almost everything in life is relative and comparative to something else.
To a billionaire, a millionaire is relatively poor compared to them. To a millionaire, somebody on an average income is relatively poor compared to them and so forth.
Selfishly, I've occasionally considered myself impoverished but on reflection I've always had a roof over my head, food on the table, clean running water and mains sewerage.
To many people all over the world, these basics would seem like unattainable luxuries and so it may apply to how much money we think we all need or want......it's all relative and comparative!
I've never been that materialistic or acquisitive (just as well really) so I value being comfortable and relaxed more highly than buying a mansion or a Ferrari.
Having said that, I'm ambitious enough to want to improve my situation and help others along the way. If I do that, I'll be successful in my own eyes!
What's your meaning of success and how will that compare to your current situation, relatively speaking?
Have a great day!
