Appreciating what you’ve got . . .
How Wealthy Are You?
Consider the following statistics:

Imagine that, for whatever reason, money is no longer an issue with your lives. Within the realms of physical reality, you are free to pursue whatever you want to do or have.
You should then make two lists. The first list is all of the things you would change; the second is everything you can think of that would stay the same.
You may switch jobs, take more holidays, get a nicer car, move to a larger house but you probably won't dump your friends, stop visiting your favourite restaurants, watch different films or laugh at different things.
Everything you wouldn't change if you had no extra money is an area of your life where you are already living rich.
The more you focus on those areas where you are already rich, the more you will realise how good your lifestyle actually is.
