Richness is simply having your needs covered

Adjusting needs is easier than trying to fulfill all desires

There is no precise amount of money that makes you rich. Having $10,000 in the bank can be considered a lot by some and spare change by others. Many multimillionaires, for example, don’t consider themselves rich.

Being rich simply means having your needs covered and being left with money in the bank—needs that you’re largely free to determine. Yes, we all have some undisputed physiological needs, such as water, food, shelter, and clothes, but once those are met, the rest where money is needed are mostly up to our preference.

It’s much easier to inspect and adjust your needs and wants than letting your social media influenced desires roam free and try to keep up with them.
