Wealth is in the mind

According to the LA Times you need a net worth of ten million dollars to be able to call yourself rich; that’s how much you’d need today to match the lifestyle of the average nineteen twenty five millionaire. Paradoxically, a report by investment brokers Neuberger & Bergman revealed that fifty five percent of people whose assets actually were in that range didn’t consider themselves wealthy.
But wealth really is in the mind. Queen Victoria, one of the richest people of her age, didn’t sleep in as good a bed as I do, didn’t have access to the sort of health care that I have, certainly did enjoy pain free dental treatment, and couldn’t listen to any of the great orchestras of the world any time she chose, like I can. If she was rich, then what am I?
The willingness to see and count our blessings is what makes us rich.
