Are You Rich? Or Poor?

rich or poor

I was wondering today about what makes one rich or poor.

There are people with a lot of money. They are rich. But are they really?!

If you have a lot of money, and spend it lavishly or generously on things that matter to you, then you’re really rich.

If you have a lot of money, but hoard it and deprive yourself of things your money can buy you, then you’re actually one of the “rich” poor!

And then, there are people who don’t have much (or any) money. They are poor. But some are different.

If you don’t have money, and therefore do not spend it on even things that are important or matter to you, then you’re really poor.

If you don’t have money, yet stretch out your debt and max credit cards to live the “rich lifestyle”, then you’re one of the “poor” rich!

So, what kind are YOU? 😉
