Wealth to me is having enough money that I could buy a comfortable home, a car, and handle my expenses without having to worry about missing a paycheck.

In my mind, wealth is having what you need and being happy with what you have. If you can accomplish those things, you have all the money you need.

What does "wealth" mean to you?


It means not being in credit card debt more than $1000. It means not having to wait years to buy an item you want. It means having money in the bank for retirement. It means having cash to cover unforseen expenses like car repairs or a new toaster oven.

It means becoming lazy, losing inventiveness and ambition. It can also make you fat

Good point fay. Yes many rich Kings became fat. Henry VIII, George IIII, Louis XVI.

Well, I'm fat and I certainly ain't rich. So that isn't really an accurate stereotype. Not to mention lots of wealthy people are quite slim.

yes you are right, I guess its when rich goes wrong. Some people can handle wealth, and handle it well, others handle it unwisely.
I think personally, I would not want to be really wealthy, because I know I can become both greedy and selfish, and I need to guard myself against that.

Both Henry VIII and George IIII were not shown correctly about the proper responsibilities of money, Henry grew greedy and George particularly was a sad case, he was not Allowed responsibility so he become lazy and extravagant too.

Is wealth a state of mind as well as the amount of money you have?

Do you need a combination of both to be wealthy?

My definition of wealth is not the same as my definition of happiness. The song says, "Money can't buy you love" and it is so true.

Wealth to me is freedom. Freedom from financial strings. Freedom to work, if and when I want. To be able to follow my passion and interest without worrying about bills. To want for nothing materially. To be able to find my bliss.

Now I don't think wealth will guarantee happiness. But will provide the freedom to search out what makes each and every one of us happy.
