True Wealth is the freedom and resources to pursue your full potential and live life on your own terms. It recognizes that happiness and wellbeing are the real goals. And, so monetary wealth is one of the means to get there.
A Sense of Wealth
The challenge we all face is how to get there. A Sense of Wealth is devoted to helping you achieve your True Wealth.
Money is how most define wealth, but it didn’t start out that way. The word wealth evolved from an old English word, “wel,” used centuries ago meaning a state of good fortune or happiness. Over time, at least in our culture, it became more narrowly thought of as financial or monetary wealth.
At A Sense of Wealth, we like the older and broader definition of wealth. One that also includes provisions for happiness and well-being. But rather than try to compete with centuries of language evolution, we call the older and broader definition of wealth “True Wealth.”
You may think of True Wealth as your life’s dream, a long-term goal, or a desired future state for yourself. It’s also important to have some goal or idea of where you want to go, even if it’s not perfect. This initial vision may very well change over time as you learn, grow, and change yourself.
Progress vs. Perfection
Winston Churchill said: “Perfection is the enemy of progress.” It holds up the process of moving forward and denies us valuable lessons as we take on the journey. Our view of True Wealth changes and gets clearer as we go through life, learn, and choose who we really want to be.
