    What is your concept of being rich?

    What do you mean when you say you want to be rich. Is it only having lots of money or best home, cars, Or what??

    The freedom to follow the weather without needing to stay in one place and work in order to pay bills.  Travel anywhere I fancy.  Help whomever I would like without thinking twice about it.  The ability to give a huge anonymous donation to a worthy cause.  The peace of mind from no longer worrying about paying the bills and having the freedom to concentrate on things that matter the most, such as the best education for the children in the family, the best health care possible for family and friends, and the ability to travel and see the wonders of this world.  Large homes and nice cars would be great but they aren't first on my list.

      Large homes with 3 walk in closets, travel to exotic places, having and owning one's network, 3 mink coats, the whole enchilada, having a literal heaven on Earth!

    The true definition of Wealth for me is to be able to gain more so one can be a blessing to others.  Being truly rich is to acquire more blessings so you can also be a channel of blessing to others.  When you have more, you can give more. Being rich can be in the form of having more properties, having more friends, having rich and memorable experiences, becoming more inspiration to others, and so on.  You can read my hub about my experience in the Wealth Summit, I explained there in a way, the true concept of being rich.

    I take it we're thinking along the lines of winning LOTTO and collecting, say, 15 million.

    There's an old soap ad that used to appear on television that said it all for me. The couple and their children are so rich they need never experience winter. When winter is about to arrive they just jet off to where it is summer.

    Apart from avoiding the cold, being rich is about freedom to choose your own path in life. You are not restrained by having to make money. What you are restrained by, unless you are an idiot, is having to keep your money. You can best do this by keeping it in circulation and possibly by dividing it between a number of banks.

    As for your own choice of life path, you can spend months instead of years discovering where your talents lie. You think you're a writer? Then write and invest in your writing. You think you're an artist? Have a go at that and invest in your art. These of course are now affordable sidelines to making money but if you have millions then these sidelines are okay whether they make money or not.

    As for recreational activities, if you like to fish the world of fishing is open to you.

    All up, don't be one of those those dodos that blows the lot within a year on useless junk and then cries on the shoulder of some current affairs hostress.Take it easy, take it slow and get plenty of advice.

    Having enough money to spend, invest and save, and to help others.  Having so much money as to never ever worrying  about paying bills and having a place to stay. Being able to freely assist younger relatives  to attain an education and to help older relatives to reconstruct their house.  Having unlimited discretionary income and having enough income to wildly and freely pursue one's dreams.  Having the best in financial freedom without any worries ever!
