Maybe there are a million reasons why one might prefer wealth to poverty, but sometimes we are also apt to preach that wealth is not the end-all or be-all to life. There’s truth to that except when it leads to a hate or distrust of wealth. Contrary to some politicians and philosophers, there is nothing inherently bad or evil about being wealthy and if you harbor a secret hate for it, you are sabotaging your chances of improving your lot in life.
Here are five very legitimate reasons why you might want to enjoy what wealth has to offer.
Wealth can provide you with CONFIDENCE. Confidence comes with accomplishment and when you accomplish something the shackles of doubt fade.
Wealth can provide you with new APPRECIATION. While it is true that wealth cannot buy happiness, it does buy a “better view.” Surrounded by luxury is more fun than the alternative and allows one to put their focus on previously unimaginable possibilities.
Wealth can provide you with more energy. When many of life’s stresses are taken care of, you are apt to feel happier and lighter.
Wealth can make you fearless. Having success in your pocket makes it easier to bypass fears. When you are not coming from a position of fear, you are more apt to succeed again, and might just become unstoppable.
Most importantly, wealth can make you more effective. As more of your needs are taken care of, you may begin to think of how you can help others and you are in a more powerful position to do so. Not only helping others, but your example of helping may rub off upon others encouraging them to do the same. You are able to touch and impact more lives in a constructive positive way.
Wealth need not be associated with greed, and properly used can be a gift to all!
