What comes to your mind when you hear the word ‘Wealthy’ someone who has Lots of money? Rich friends, Big houses, Flashy cars, designer clothes & accessories…. Then Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston would have qualified as ‘wealthy’ but I feel they were really poorest of poor.

When I was a 9 years old, I would watch 2 people very closely, one was my father and the other his friend, who would visit our house often. At that age I had come to the conclusion that my dad’s friend was a ‘wealthy’ guy and my dad was a ‘poor’ guy, though he did struggle to give us four children the best life he could. Fast forward 45 years. My dad’s friend died of heavy smoking and drinking, had problems with spouse and children, no time, no freedom, always in a rush. When I compare the two, I now feel, that my dad was the ‘wealthy’ guy and the one I thought was wealthy was truly very poor. I share 7 indicators of being a wealthy person. So here we go…

  1. Health: who has not heard the worn out phrase, ‘health is wealth’ but still health is something we don’t care about till it is too late. If you can’t eat what you want, go where you want, do what you love to do, enjoy the comforts you have accumulated, then my dear friend, you are not wealthy health wise. I suggest you celebrate your birthday every year by having a complete medical check up and keeping your health in top shape. Take care of your diet, sleep, exercise.

  2. Freedom: Do you have the freedom to read what you want, express what you want, do what you want, sleep when you want, choose what you want, say no to what you don’t want, live your passion, take your own decisions. Do you feel free or do you feel as if you are in a prison. I was doing a workshop at a cement plant at a remote location once, the managers who attended the program were handsomely paid, given lovely houses to live in, they had facility for a school, hospital and shopping in the township, they also had a club and theatre facility. When I was telling one of the managers how lucky he was to have all these facilities, he said in a very sad tone, “I live in a prison made of gold!” It was clear that this manager was not wealthy freedom wise. Don’t trade freedom with material things.

  3. Spouse: Are you compatible with each other? Do you respect each other? Do you trust each other? Are you committed to make your marriage work? I think this is one relationship which can play havoc with your peace of mind and happiness in life. If you have everything else but a partner who constantly nags you, finds thrill in making your life miserable then your life becomes a living hell and you cannot enjoy the wealth you have accumulated You are not wealthy spouse wise. Choose your life partner wisely.

  4. Friends: Do you have someone to share your success, sorrows, ideas, thoughts, feelings, problems with? Do you have someone who can support you when you need him/her. If no, then you are not wealthy friend wise. Be a good friend first to make friends.

  5. Parents: Do you have parents who value you, support you, love you, trust you, care for you? If no, then you are not wealthy parent wise. You may not be able to change your parents but you can certainly change your attitude towards them.

  6. Children: Do your children respect you, care for you, make you proud, support you? You may have earned all the wealth in the world but if your children keep doing things which makes you hang your head in shame then you are not wealthy children wise. Nurture your children by building their self - esteem.

  7. Time: Do you find time for yourself, children, spouse, parents, friends, hobbies, to relax, to read, surf the net, sleep, listen to music, just to do nothing, meditate, exercise. If no, then you are not wealthy, time wise. Find time to do the things you love to do.

So there you have it, if you just have tonnes of money and loads of material things you are not truly wealthy. But when you have the wealth of health, freedom, spouse, friends, parents, children and time then and only then you can qualify as a real wealthy person.
