    What does personal wealth mean to you

    Status, prestige, money in the bank?  Importance, home, security, children, family?  Poverty over wealth.  Money management.  All under the same category?  All the truth in our lives?  Would love some feedback.

    The real wealth for me is having a great family that you'd never stop being proud of and a nice home somewhere quite, money does help but one doesn't need to have alot of it to be wealthy.

    Personal wealth to me means having good health.  Status, had that and did nothing for me.  Money in the bank, had that too, and it didn't cure my illnesses. 

    I just want my children to grow up healthy and happy.  We provide the best we can on what we have.  I hope some day they have opportunity.  Be the best we can be every day.  That's all I can ask for.

      True, true and true.  Wealth  changes as a word when we look at it personally.  I love sharing our opinions.

    Personal wealth means anything you can call your own.
    There is always going to be someone who has more or less than you depending on the category. Ultimately it comes down to whether or not a person is happy or at the very least content with their life. If the answer is "no" they would not feel wealthy even if they were rich compared to others.
    At the end of the day wealth is a state of mind. Perception is reality! One man's junk is another man's treasure and so on.
    If you're happy with your life then you are wealthy in my opinion!

      Most of the time, yes, happiness is what you make it.  State of mind, end of the day, go to sleep.

    To me, personal wealth means anything belongs to me or anyone associated with me. One of the most important steps in personal wealth building is getting yourself out of the bondage of debt and making an investment plan.

    Personal wealth to me means having the power to buy whatever you want to buy and to go wherever you want to go.

    In other words, it means to ability to make the type of choices that stems from being completely free.

      "Completely Free"  Those words stopped me.  Got me to read what you wrote over and over again.  Well said, thank you.
