Wealth or Wellbeing?
Wealth. The OED says "an abundance of valuable possessions or money, a plentiful supply of a particular desirable thing".
The word 'Wealth' comes from Middle English, Welthe, from Well or Weal. So that's Well, or Wellbeing. I didn't know that.
Not long ago I was working with a client who expressed their values as 'wealth, success, happiness' in that order. I asked the client to notice the order, was there any significance? As it turned out, the area the client wanted to explore in detail was happiness.
A few years ago I wrote a series of blogs about The Law of Attraction - here's a link to the first one. What is becoming increasingly clear to me is the benefit of focussing on Abundance. Welcoming abudance, being abundant with yourself and with others. Who wouldn't want an abundance of happiness?
So, for all you folk out there who want to make loads of money, how about this little quote:
"You aren't wealthy until you have something money can't buy."
