On being rich

A little story.

Let’s start from the same base. You and your friend have the same amount of money, say 200$. Who is richer? We can’t decide yet.

Your friend decides to spend his money on this new crazy experience, jumping from an airplane. You decide to keep the money.

After this experience, your friend has 50$, and you still have 200$. Who’s richer now?

… Well, it’s complicated.

If being rich is measured by the amount of money you have in your bank account, then you are richer. If being rich means being alive, living the full life, trying new experiences… then your friend is richer.

When people say “I want to be rich”. What they mean is “I want to live like rich people”. Being rich isn’t always about money. Money’s value is multiplied when you spend it on experiences you like or with the people you love. A dollar is a dollar. How you spend it is what makes the difference. It’s what makes you live like rich people.
