Wealth is what you want to be aiming at. Not money, not status. But wealth. And I define wealth as the ability to be free and playful with time and money, health and social relationships.
Free and playful are the keywords here.
Can you be playful with you money at the moment? Can you freely decide what to do with and how to use your time? Can you be playful with your body? Can you be free from your mind? Do you have people around you, you can be playful with? Do you have people around you to which you can come to discuss anything freely?
Mind you, playfulness and freedom do not always mean “fun”. They can both be serious. But they feel serious in a good way. I can’t describe it any better.
