How Rich Are You?

How Rich Are You?

I have realized that the greatest poverty is a poverty of dreams.

When there is nothing to look forward to, and nothing to live and fight for, life is likened to a feather carried by the aimless winds of life.

There is nothing more tragic than to live without a sense of meaning, purpose and significance.

When you hold on with determination to your high calling, you can tap on the infinite wealth that our Creator has prepared for you.

He has opened for you a personal checking account with unlimited resources that you can draw upon to fulfill His worthwhile causes.

Poverty of character and values is another one of the worst diseases that plagues different parts of society.

Ultimately, people will see beyond the glitter and glamour and right through to your heart.

It is not what you have but how you gave, and not the quantity of our possessions but the quality of your contributions that determine true wealth.

Furthermore, there is no quality that defines poverty as much as a poverty of humility.

When you think you are bigger than what you really are and worse, when you think you are better than the others, you push yourself over the cliff of true wealth and into the dark abyss of life.

On the way down, there are no helping hands because you could have unwittingly rejected them.

Even if there are people there to help you, the lack of humility will continue to prevent you from breaking the fall and climbing back to your rightful place.

When you examine the overall scheme of life, you will realize that your perception of poverty is narrow and incomplete.

There is a need to re-evaluate your belief so that you will live a balanced life.

And live a full life and life to the fullest.

Ultimately, poverty becomes permanent when there is a poverty of the right action.

When you do not take the right action and enough of them, you will never improve your lot in life.

Somehow, you will find yourself going round in circles and regressing in life.

You may never escape the clutches of poverty.

Break this vicious cycle and put yourself on the path to sustainable wealth.


I hope this message will find a place in your heart.
