I’ve been wanting to start this ‘Rich Beyond Money’ series for some time, but I kept putting it off as I was thinking ‘Not many would be interested in this kind of thing’.
Folks are far more interested in knowing how to have more money. . . like saving, making and investing their money.
How can Rich Beyond Money Series help you?
My inner voice tells me that having more money is fulfilment on the outside. But to be truly rich, we need fulfilment on the inside too.
“There’s more to life than money” – Mr MMT
I don’t mean money is unimportant.
But to lead a truly rich life, we need more than just money.
All of us need this balance. To have one without the other is like going through life with one hand.
We all require two hands to realize our dreams and live a rich, meaningful life.
To truly help you folks live the rich life you deserve, I give you ‘Rich Beyond Money’ Series.
Why is money never enough?
I’m sure you’ve come across very rich people who are never satisfied with the wealth they have, and are always unfulfilled.
I know of a wealthy couple who has never worked and everything they own is debt free.
They bought 6 acres of land, built a sprawling and luxurious new house, but complained that their relatives were far wealthier and could just buy houses as if they were purchasing clothes.
Having said this, I’ve never been envious of this rich couple. Just sad for them that they couldn’t appreciate their good fortune.
Or have you met multi-millionaires who say “I just need a bit more money” when asked if they’re happy with what they have.
You CAN have Both Money and Fulfilment
I believe you CAN have both.
While working on building your material wealth, work on your inner wealth too.

Another way is to use a gratitude stone or rock to remind yourself to be grateful for the things in your life.
You can have more than one stone, one in your pocket and the other where you’ll see it often.
In fact, you can use anything, not just stones for this purpose.
When I was very stressed several years ago, I found this stone just outside my garage.
I thought it had been left behind by my son’s music student. She had given him a similar stone as a gift the previous Christmas.
I also checked with the property manager who came around to do her usual house inspection as we were renting a place then.
But nobody knew about it.
The strangest thing is it was in a prominent spot near the front of my garage and I couldn’t miss it.
It has since become my gratitude stone and I love it.
The message on the other side of the stone is a quote from the Bible, so it has special significance for me.
Another way is to set your alarm to a specific time during the day.
When it rings, it’s a reminder for you to say and feel what you’ve been grateful for that day.
