Being Rich Without Money
– 4 Things Money Can’t Buy
Hi there. Today I’m talking about being rich – without money.
How could that be? Well I’d like to share two (somewhat)
famous quotes about this, and then 4 ways that we can find ourselves wealthy,
with things that money can’t actually buy.
I hope you enjoy reading.
think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed
of so they can see that it's not the answer'' – Jim Carrey.
This quote reaches out to us and speaks of how money isn't the answer. The famous actor explains that he wants others to be
aware of what really happens when you get rich and famous.
Even if you get ‘everything you ever dreamed’ of it – it doesn’t
equate happiness, because as humans we have a deeper need than to just have
So that’s one viewpoint on this issue. When we talk about
being rich without money, we talk about having a life so full and valuable,
that the amount of money we have in our pockets, essentially does not bring
I think that once we cross the line of poverty- then gaining
endless wealth does not do anything to make us more happy individuals. Once we
have what we need to live well, hoarding more adds no real extra value. Just something we wish could fill the void.
''It is not the man who has too little, but the man who craves more, that
Wow, what a way to look at things. Who in today’s world
measures happiness, by the level of satisfaction, as supposed to the level of
Being Rich without money is very much possible, because as
the above quote shows, we actually generate our own wealth by the way we view
It’s actually the man who craves more and more that is poor.
Little does he realize that money won’t cure his buried problem.
So then, what ways can we be rich without money?
Let’s look at just 4 ways we can allow bountiful wealth into
Rich in Character
Our character is a way we can add more riches to our life.
It’s remarkably wonderful the power we have to bring wealth and satisfaction
to our lives, just by the choices we make. Being rich in character is more
about personal development, and growing as a person.
- Taking advantage of the
opportunities we have to show qualities such as resilience, patience,
- Wouldn’t you agree that these are traits that we could use
to brighten up our lives if only we gave more attention to them?
- You may have a
bank account bursting with money but if you don’t have self-control or wisdom
of character then what does it amount to?
Rich in Relationships
- Being rich in relationships means that we practice our
ability to show love. It’s about appreciating the people we have in our lives
and not putting them second place to money or vain pursuits.
- We can use the
moments we have each day to connect with people on a meaningful level and do
what we can to empower the people we meet, giving them our warm affection and
that little bit of care.
Rich in Joy
Enjoy the gift of laughter every single day. You become rich in joy when you develop the pattern of having joy even when
outside situations are ‘mediocre’. It also involves the battle of choosing to
be happy, in your heart mind and having a more optimistic view to life. Money
certainly doesn’t buy that.
Rich in Well Being
- This point is particularly about looking after
ourselves and being wealthy by a wholesome lifestyle.
- We can’t control everything when it
comes to health, but we can reasonably care for ourselves in ways that show we
appreciate our lives and the body we have.
- After all our life is a gift money
could never get us. We can be rich by our daily choices and doing what we can
to lead an active responsible lifestyle. (you win in every way).
