Some of you still chafe when I talk about flying the Concorde, staying in luxury suites, and going on PRADA shopping sprees. But you know what?
There are a lot of other reasons to be rich. Some very simple pleasures in life that come when you have enough money to enjoy them. So forget about garages full of exotic sports cars, vacations around the world, and designer togs for the moment. In the interest of your prosperity consciousness, I’d like to share: Simple Reasons You Might Want to be Rich…
Stepping out of the shower and grabbing a huge, thirsty, soft towel to wrap around your body.
Ordering from the left half of the menu, instead of the right. (You guys in China, reverse this.)
Sleeping on high thread count Egyptian cotton sheets that simply caress your body.
Being able to write the check that funds the church, temple or synagogue project that needs to be done.
Getting a whole car from the rental car company instead of half a car.
Sending your nieces and nephews the coolest holiday presents they ever got.
Wearing real leather shoes that fit your feet like warm butter, instead of those plastic Payless shoes, or clunky Florsheim ones.
Calling your loved ones long distance without worrying about the length of the call, or whether you are in the low rate window.
Ordering from the pizza place you like, not the one you have coupons for.
Getting the nice view from your room, not the parking lot of the Denny’s.
Yes sunsets, hugs and walks on the beach are still free. But there are literally millions of other simple pleasures that can bring joy to your life, which still cost money. And the more money you have, the more you can experience.
So if you afraid to dream big about exotic cars, extra homes and designer goods, maybe you should just think for now about which simple pleasures you wish you had more of in your life. Please share any you think of below.
BTW, the new episode of Prosperity TV is up. It asks the question, “Do You REALLY Want to be Rich? The answer may surprise you. See it here: http://www.youtube.com/randygage
