    Are you richer or smarter than you were 5 years ago?

    We would all like to think we are smarter and many of us would love to be richer, so what about you? Do you think you are richer or smarter than you were 5 years ago?

    Good question...I am definitely smarter to what I was 5 years ago.

    Regarding my Riches...I could define my riches by my experiences in this 5 years span of time versus the materialistic money  and outweigh my experiences to be way more enriching than the amount of cash I got to stack either in my bank or in my pocket.

    I am richer because I'm smarter. We sometimes forget the value of priceless because we are fixed on pricey.

    I am definitely not richer.  I am way more broke.  As far as smarter, maybe in some ways.  I've learned a lot about clipping coupons and searching for bargains, that is for sure.

    Yes to both. While I am not much more financially well-off than I was five years ago (though some), my business is on much firmer footing and I am able to still earn a living while keeping sane business hours. For smarter...I have learned SOOO much in the last five years it's not even funny -- but then again, I've been actively looking and always jump on opportunities to learn new things. It really is fascinating where it has led me and the new passions I've discovered along the way.

    It is a personal goal to continue learning, so I think I might be smarter, or at least contain more information.

    Richer?...............No, my living was made several years ago. 

    If I were starting anew today, there would be a great burden and a heavy fear of failure.

    May not be THAT MUCH richer, but definitely a hell lot smarter (brain wise)

    Because I read a quote somewhere and firmly believe that too:

    I spent my riches to become smarter. Hope that makes me wise.

    Interestingly I make more money but I have acumulated none of it, as I'm still trying to climb out of the hole I got myself in when I used to make less money. I do have a home now and five years ago I did not so I suppose I may even be richer. As for smarter, I am a lot smarter today than I was 5 years ago. I learn so much every day from the daily challenges of being and educator, a mother and a person awake in this world. I am trying to deliberately utilize those lessons to make my life richer in every sense.

    I am, indeed as compare 5-years ago and previous that time. I'm glad I did a continuous search of improvement and progress and it really does pay. It's sweet when you reap the rewards.

    I think so for sure.  I know so for the richer part, and I definitely feel smarter simply from the life experiences I've gone through. The two really go hand in hand for the most part.

    I guess I'm smarter then what I was 5 years ago and this smartness will surely make me more richer than what I was 5 years back.
