When did you first realize you were wealthy ?

When did you first realize you were wealthy ?

I realized i was rich when a friend sent me this statistics 15 years ago.
  • This morning, if you woke up healthy, then you are happier than the 1 million people that will not survive next week.
  • If you never suffered a war, the loneliness of the jail cell, the agony of torture, or hunger, you are happier than 500 million people in the world.
  • If you can enter into a church (mosque) without fear of jail or death, you are happier than 3 million people in the world.
  • If there is a food in your fridge, you have shoes and clothes, you have bed and a roof, you are richer then 75% of the people in the world.
  • If you have a bank account, money in your wallet and some coins in the money-box, you belong to the 8% of the people on the world, who are well-to-do.
If you read this you are three times blessed because:
 1. Somebody just thought of you.
 2. You don't belong to the 200 million people that cannot read.
 3. And... you have a computer!

Bonus: If You Have $10 And No Debt, You Are Richer Than 15% Of American Households Put Together


It was something so insignificant but it’s what brought me to the realization.
I was at a restaurant with my girlfriend’s family on new years. I was starving.
My company had been doing well but the last couple months it really took of making me over $18,000 in sales a month for the last three months.
I’m skimming through the menu for the option with the most food, I’m sure I would have eaten my girlfriend if I didn’t eat soon (Not like that you sick bastards…Maybe later…).
I order what sounded like a meal for a small village in Africa.
I had always generally been a frugal person so my girlfriend was surprised that I order some pretty pricey things on the menu. When she brought it up to my attention, it hit me like a bulldozer.
I had switched from the person on the right to the person on the left.

Many of you that eat out on a budget know exactly what i’m talking about. I used to examine the price then decide whether or not I’d like the food.
I no longer gave a shit how much the food was, it never even occurred to me. At that moment I realized that this is what wealth really felt like. I even saved the receipt as a memory. It’s in the bottom of my desk drawer .

I ate all of this alone…
In my defense I did take some home.



I am constantly being reminded by myself that I am wealthy beyond my dreams.
I am wealthier and happier then some of the greatest Kings who have rules on this planet.
Reasons
I am wealthier than Genghis Khan

I can go on and on…
But that is the idea.
Most of the people in today’s world are feeling unhappy for no reasons at all. Many are suffering from depression and other mental disorders.
They are just forgetting that we are living in such an era where most of the lower middle class families also have way more facilities compared to the Kings of medieval ages.
We have access to clean drinking water, We have access to entertainment at our fingertips. We have access to all the medical wonders where you can just pop a pill and say good bye to the fever.
We also have access to great variety of food that even the Kings would be jealous of.
It is all about how one individual looks at the world.
