What is Real Wealth?

Your success in modern times is defined by the wealth and media or the people, in general, are not really interested in knowing what you are doing to reach that wealth mark.

Well, we all know what wealth is. It is INR for people living in India and $ for people living in the US. For other nations, the currency would be different like euros or pounds, etc. When it comes to a person's wealth, people usually look at their bank balance, how much property and luxurious items they own, and what is their net worth. Your success in modern times is defined by the wealth and media or the people, in general, are not really interested in knowing what you are doing to reach that wealth mark.

If you work in MNC or large-scale companies and draw a huge salary every month, I am sure you would be getting calls from insurance agents and even financial institutions to invest your money in policies, and financial programs and get into stock markets. Apart from calls on your mobile, you will always have marketing emailers and SMSes from the above financial companies to drive your attention to their programs.

After all, they want you to become wealthy rich through their schemes and plans. If you are someone who has a very less salary, then you won't get many calls and attention to even if you say that your salary is less than Rs. 3 lakh per year. It is not just the companies but no one in the family or relatives or even friends would be really interested in you, because the 21st century is looking for people who achieve the crore mark in terms of wealth.

While reading this entire article, if you have been thinking that real wealth is all of the above, then let me prove you totally wrong. Real wealth is the happiness, peace, and satisfaction that you get in life. Not everyone is blessed with a perfect job, perfect health, and a perfect family. There are ifs and buts everywhere you go and whatever you do. But despite all the imperfections that you notice in your life, while you go to sleep at night, you sleep with a smile on your face and satisfaction in your heart that you have given your best for the day and you look forward to a bright future. And this feeling and attitude in life is the real wealth.

Hope to live for the next day, willingness to do the best in the present, and having people around you to share your love and affection with are the best forms of real wealth that people are just missing out on due to the growing modernization in today's times. Whenever you find a negative thing in your life, being able to think beyond the impossibilities and finding out true happiness even in small wins and achievements are the forms of real wealth. 

Living each day to the fullest with a positive mindset and never-give-up attitude are some forms of real wealth that people are just giving a miss because of the recent celebration of only the financially rich heroes in the world. So why feel sad even if you have a low package or not many possessions in life, just be happy with whatever you have and let go of the past to make a new reality of being spiritually wealthy in life.
