Each of us perceives some things in abundant supply in our lives. However, visible and invisible sources of affluence exist. Whether or not you appreciate everything remains to be seen.
A writer is never at a loss for words. Ponder how you express words with and without judgment. Notice words adopt the connotations you give them. Alone and quiet, they mean nothing. The question is, what is the intention behind a writer's words?
An experienced builder offers a wealth of insight to architects and city planners. The question is, does such a builder acquire knowledge for his own benefit or does he have an altruistic side?
An investor can build a large property portfolio. The question is, is this investor working purely for himself (i.e. is he self-interested), or does he have a wider vision for whom he is or can help?
A missionary tends to overflow with religious ideas. The question is, are people always persuaded that his perspective on the world is as valuable as he thinks it is?
You may have more than enough food to eat and consider you have enough to waste. After a dinner party, you may have so many leftovers, you compost for worms, leave some for the raccoons and throw some in the garbage.
A family may consider its pets to be its greatest source of wealth. How many people do you know whose cats, dogs, or other animals have become the centre of their universe?
Parents may feel their primary source of wealth is their children or other family members. The levels of love, affection and compassion shared may seem inexhaustible and unconditional.
Such examples remind you wealth is understood in different ways. It could take the form of money and material possessions. It could be something measurable or immeasurable.
In essence, you feel rich when you focus on what triggers joy in life. Wealth begins as a state of mind. If you desire to create new kinds of affluence in your life, as you visualize it, then you'll be more likely to realize it.
