Since I was a child, I have started to think how to be rich.
Evaluating people around me I tried to figure out how to be rich. I started analyzing the life of people who owned nice cars, people that owned wonderful houses.
I reasoned about the best things to do. Also me, I wanted to own beautiful things.
The first point in order to change my mind was to become aware that my family was a poor family.
Not really so poor. We had enough for eating, we had enough to pay the loan of the house, the bills, the taxes and sometimes, but very few times, the bills of the restaurant.
In my village there were poorer people.
But I realised this: I couldn’t access to the best schools, I couldn’t spend my holidays where I wanted, I had not the possibility to travel in order to learn about different cultures and different languages.
If also you, you want to be rich, first of all you have to evaluate the family to which you belong. If your family is poor or it’s almost poor you can’t understand how to be rich simply taking example from your family. It seems obvious but I know due to my personal experience I can say that it is not so easy to see what is just in front of you.
The second move is to make some reflections about you.
What does it mean to me to be rich? According to the person you are, being rich can mean different things. According to the person you are, the richness you can achieve the richness in different ways.
If you love football you would like to become rich playing football. If you love playing cards you would like to discover the way how to be rich with the card games.
According to your interests and your passions you should ask yourself: how to be rich? How can I be rich? What does it mean to me being rich?
Being rich doesn’t necessary mean to be financially rich.
Having money is not the only answer to the question “how to be rich”? For someone money are the answer but for someone else they are not.
So the second step in order to be rich is to ask yourself:
How would I like to spend my time?
How many money do I need to be happy?
What means to me the question “how to be rich”?
Try to figure out the answer. You should give yourself, an honest answer. It’s useless to lie to yourself. Be sure the people around you don’t influence you. The system and the conventional point of view have not to make you in a hurry.
If you are under pressure you are not able to think properly.
That’s the reason because people became unhappy. Because people are not really free to understand what make them rich.
