Do You Have A Problem With Being Rich?
This article has been inspired by Jeanette Maw aka The Good Vibe Coach and her post The Problem With Being Rich
I was surprised as I read through the comments of how many people had a problem with being rich.
So I reflected on my own attitude. I related to what my friend Annette was saying and her comment resonated for many.
Let’s see . . The problem with being rich is
Would I finish what I have already started? ???
I then added my reply, I was feeling very positive about being rich. Rich for me being more than money. Rich is about how I feel, being rich empowers me. This in turn enables me to live my mission to make a difference by inspiring and empowering others to lead lives full of freedom, joy and love.
Like many people whose parent came out of the Great Depression, I was bought up very abundantly, but with a sense of caution,
“we can’t afford that” ” Money doesn’t grow on trees”
and other such limiting beliefs
I know that the vision of the home, the car used to make me feel rich. The difference is that now I feel rich already. The new home, the new car will make me feel richer and will mean that I have more freedom and more options.
Today I know that I will keep doing a lot of what I am doing, I will have the resources to empower more people, I will travel more and meet with more of the like minded people I have met online.
We made a shift from the expensive life of the big city to a financially less expensive place what I call paradise. I walk and swim each day on a beach people pay thousands of dollars to holiday at. We live in a resort style community with tennis court on an island, with trees and birds. We eat local fresh produce so we are healthier.
We have learnt to live with less, we have a greater love for one another. Life is abundant, I have made the shift.
Today I woke up ” Happy for no reason” with a smile on my face, in my heart & in my belly… RICH I am happy and abundant and now I am ready for the millions to flow.
Does feeling rich empower you?
Fascinating topic, huh, Suzie?! I LOVE your powerful mantra: “I am happy and abundant and now I am ready for the millions to flow.”
Yes it is a fascinating topic and I do thank you for raising it. It has made me think more about how important being able to empower others is to me. Thanks for the comment pn the mantra- I took the Happiness, Abundance and millions course that Marci Shimoff ran with the Morellis and I know that really contributed to my shift
I love the conversation that are developing on your blog too
thanks for sharing nice tips and great links
Rich, to me, is creating a life where I have abundant time and freedom to share my wealth of experience with others who want to create the same life for themselves.
I’m on my way to attaining this goal, and when I’m running ’round the world empowering others, the term “rich” is what I’ll have achieved.

I totally agree with what you are saying, What you have written does make my heart sing. It’s so true:)
For me, being rich (and that means super rich) would enable me to do all kinds of things for others. I’m a Mac person through and through, but really like what BIll Gates has done with his billions; he and his wife have a foundation that’s really trying to change the world. I have great admiration for that part of Bill’s life, even while I think his computers stink! I don’t know that I’ll ever be rich, but I’m working towards at least being comfortable, being able to retire at a comfortable income and secure my family’s financial future.To that end, I’m visiting various web sites, looking over advice there and doing some reading, including of a great book called “Debt-Free Millionaire” by Anthony Manganiello. He has steps to take to retire debt that’s eroding everything you’re trying to do, money wise, and retire rich. All kinds of interesting tidbits — for example, most people think that finding a higher-paying job is the ticket to financial security — BUT you could be creating a much less secure financial situation than you dreamed of. He gives steps to take to create more financial stability, if you should get that great job. I don’t necessarily think of things like that, so it’s could to have possible pitfalls pointed out.
I love the your comment about being a mac person and loving what Bill Gates does and that does inpsire me as does Oprah. yes if we are supe rich we can inspire and empower and share out gifts with the world
