How To Be Truly Rich And Why You Should Be

We lived comfortably. My father was a good provider, but I've never heard my parents talk about money. So, it never occurred to me that I can and it's okay to want to be truly rich.

How to be truly rich and why you should be?

I have always been content with how my life is going. My basic needs are met; I eat decent meals, I have a roof over my head and clothes on my back.

I've traveled to beautiful places. I can afford to watch a movie. I'm not deprived of good food and gadgets.

What more can I ask for? Why would I aspire to be richer when I have what I need, and I even have extra to enjoy a little luxury here and there?


How small my dreams were and how selfish was I?

All I think about was myself.

The older I get, the stronger my compassion for others grow. The more I see how the world really is, the more I want to help change it.

When I started listening to Bro Bo Sanchez's preaching years ago, I realized to be rich is not evil or selfish or greedy, IF your ultimate goal is to help others.

I want to save as many stray animals as I could and give them a better life.

I want to help build communities that provide a livelihood for the poorest of the poor.

I want not only to continue helping charities but to increase the assistance I provide.

I want organizations to continue with their marvelous works of saving the planet by sponsoring them.

Yes, it still starts with "I" but at least it's about others.

How can I do all these things if I only have "just enough" for myself?

The change I wish to see in the world will not come to pass unless I change myself, step out of my comfort zone and work towards that change.

Instead of turning a blind eye on the problems I see that bother me (like animal cruelty and extreme poverty), I decided to find a way to help.

And here's a way I've found: growing and changing not only to be rich but be truly rich.

Be wise enough to choose the best performing stocks and shares isa. Because just because you're investing your money doesn't give you the guarantee that it will grow. So be smart in picking the ones that will increase through time.

What does it mean to be truly rich?

It means I'm not only growing my money but I'm also nourishing my soul and taking care of my health.

To be truly rich is not just about the superficial worldly success. It is becoming a whole person, enriching all areas of your life and not just your wallet.

Money is not the root of all evil, but the love of money is. So it is important to not only increase my finances but also become a more godly person in the process.

I wish I started early

How I wish I knew better when I was younger.

When I started working, my colleagues would be excited to apply for a loan and they convinced me that I should to. Because of the reports that if you don't use your money, someone else will. A sad truth about our government.

Little did I know that I will be paying for the consequences of that "small" loan big time in the future.

I wish schools teach us about handling finances wisely as early as they taught us to count.

But they don't. Maybe it's a conspiracy theory among the richest of the rich. We'll never know. 🤷

But here's what I know:

It's never too late to start investing

I started in my late 20's. Some people started way later. 

If you'll ask me when to start, I'll say today is the best day to start investing

"Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world." Those are words from the genius Albert Einstein. He said, "He who understands it, earns it; he who doesn't, pays it."

Entrepreneur Jim Rohn said, “You must get good at one of two things. Planting in the spring or begging in the fall.”

One of my fears is that I would end up begging in the fall simply because I didn't try harder.

In this Internet era, we have no excuse not to learn or not to try. 

Everything we need to know is on the internet. Gurus and mentors have videos and blogs with powerful content for us to gobble. 

I got sick of giving myself excuses:

  • I have no time. 
  • I don't know how. 
  • It's not for me.
  • I don't have enough to start.

To be truly rich is for all of us. We can learn and we have the time if only we say yes to this opportunity.

I am not a millionaire yet, but that is the goal.

And I'm not ashamed to declare that because my goal is not to buy the most expensive car or live in a mansion (although if that's your dream, go for it).

My goal is to enjoy this life by doing what I love which is traveling, and most importantly to help make this world better.

I wish to leave this world better than I found it. 

I hope to give to those who are in need. But I can't give what I don't have. That's why I aspire to be truly rich.

How about you?
