What is rich? Everyone wants to be rich but we don't have an agreed upon definition for “richness”. If I gave you $100Bajillion, I’m sure you would think yourself rich, at least financially. But what if you had to work every second of the rest of your life to get that? Would you do it? No way. So then on the opposite end of the spectrum, if you never had to work again but only all your most basic needs were met: food, shelter, toiletries, are you rich? Debatable. So what defines wealth?
I define wealth as the means to do what you want to do freely. This is intentionally vague. For some, to achieve this level of wealth will take significantly more than for others. Some want a yacht and a mansion. That is great. Others just want a porch and a dog. That's great too. As long as you can define what you need and get to that point, you are rich. Keep in mind, that the “means to do what you want” includes money, time, and health. If you do not have all these, you will be limited in what you can do and not rich as we defined it.
I read an article once somewhere where a psychologist asked his patients, “if money was no matter, what would you do with your time?” On dating sites I have many a times tried the same question but it doesn't work as well when you are a strange man seeking love on a free website. More on my dating life later. What would you do with your time? It doesn't mention your money. Just time. Would you sit and read? Would you sleep? Would you travel? How would you want to spend all the time you wouldn't have to work? For me, I would love to stay home, raise a family, grow some plants and animals and play board games all day. That may not be your cup of tea but that's the beauty of America, we can disagree. So what would you do? Where would you want to live? Would you want to live in the city? Suburbs? Community? Countryside? Abroad? How would you spend your day-to-day?
