Hi Everyone,

This is Sharon your new Abundance and Wealth Editor.

I'm in the process of learning the "in's and out's" of being your editor. I'm also committed to producing quality content.

So . . . I have a question:

What does "wealth" mean to you?


Thanks for taking the time to answer!

I look forward to sharing with you,
Sharon Michaels

Hi!Let me introduce myself, I am bewitched on the forum but my real name is Debbie. Wealth to me means having good health, love and support in what you do that makes you happy. When you have your health, someone to love you and the support to accomplish your goals, you have it all.

Wealth does have many sides, such as an abundance of money, health, spirit and all the things that make life something to be cherished. I think people make a mistake in thinking true wealth can only come in a dollar amount.

To me wealth is feeling secure, like I will always be taken care of, whether it's in the financial arena or other areas of my life.

To me wealth is being happy and content with yourself and your life.

I've been giving a lot of thought to my own definition of wealth - I realize these definitions are very personal.

Thank you everyone for sharing and I hope more of you will find it comfortable to share. We aren't going to pass judgement - there are no wrong or right answers.

Wealth to me is the ability to live comfortably and know my family will always be taken care of, no matter what. It�s the ability to give financially to those causes I feel make our world a better place. And, it�s the ability to be financially independent.

It's Sharon again - I've been thinking more about my Wealth definition. The more I learn, the more my definition seems to be evolving.

Here's my origingal: Wealth to me is the ability to live comfortably and know my family will always be taken care of, no matter what. It�s the ability to give financially to those causes I feel make our world a better place. And, it�s the ability to be financially independent.

Here's what I'm adding: Wealth is also about the peace, contentment and love I experience in my life. It doesn't matter how much money we have, if we don't have internal peace it doesn't really matter does it?


Thank you everyone for sharing and I hope more of you will find it comfortable to share.

I see this topic is under the money channel so I'll respond from that aspect of wealth and abundance.

I'm nearing retirement age - abundance and wealth to me is having enough income to live after retirement as before retirement.

Let's hope the health holds up as long as possible! Retirement wealth would include enough medical and health insurance, too.

Susan did you know that about 90% of how well you age is in your control through health choices you make every day? I'm nearing retirement age too and for the past 10 years I've been living an extremely healthy life and feel great.

Not only that tho, my husband, who has lots of things like cancer and diabetes in his family, has been able to correct any health problem that came up through natural means-such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure and high blood pressure.

My husband is still working while I am building multiple streams of passive income for us for later. Passive income is when you invest time building a means for money to keep coming in, even if you don't do any more with it. The way I'm doing it is building websites.

No stream of income is huge (yet) but the idea is to have multiple streams to add up to something bigger.

Great post! The idea of wealth to me sure has changed over the years. I used to think it was about money and it isn't any longer the most important. True wealth is having a happy and healthy family, great friends and the Lord. Then the money! lol


Have a Great Day!
