I was riding the bus today. I nearly never do, but I was today. So I used the time to listen to a podcast.
The fellow was speaking about wealth and generosity and more. He shared a few statistics about wealth: If your household income is over $40 000, you’re in the top 4% of the world. If it’s over $50 ooo, you jump right into the top 1% of the world, the richest people on the planet.
Yet we never FEEL rich.
How does that work?
He proposed a very simple theory–we never feel rich because most of us spend a lot more time thinking about what we don’t have than about what we do have.
And that leads us away from contentment.
And that isn’t the direction I want to be walking.
