Wealth means different
things to different people. For some, it may be a hefty bank balance, for
others it may be property etc. etc. It is only natural for us to have a goal in
life, work hard towards and fulfill our dreams. It is the way we secure our
life and the lives of our loved ones. It is a different thing that some people even
commit crimes or are involved in illegal means to amass wealth.
The thought process of
securing a comfortable life for self and for loved ones is only natural and
absolutely fine. It is how we plan to better our life and lifestyle. However,
the point here is that considering money as the only form of wealth is an
incorrect narrative. People who can relate to this may have seen many problems
that just can’t be resolved with money.
Realizing that there are
different forms of wealth, which we all have the means and ability to possess,
is important and necessary. These forms of wealth don’t come with a price tag
and are invaluable. We all possess it in some form or the other. A conscious
effort to get rich further in these forms of wealth will only better our life
and our surroundings. Some ways to recognize these forms of wealth are as
• Spending quality time with family and friends is wealth.
• Happiness is wealth, spreading happiness is spreading
• Giving up hate and forgiving is wealth.
• Doing small things that matter for others is wealth.
• Health is wealth.
We may have made some
wrong choices in the past. However, it doesn’t mean that we cannot attempt to
better our present and have a fulfilling life for the future. Considering the
above and realizing them as a form of wealth too; as important as money, in
itself is an achievement.
Our ability to ‘Give’ is
a way that ensures we can lead a fulfilling life. We can give only what we
have. Giving small things or small experiences to people that matter a lot to
them. Sometimes it is just your time that people need. What you give will
always remain with you forever, as a memory of a rich experience the other person
had because of you.
It is very unfortunate
that people most of the time fail to understand this simple thing.
