What is the definition of a “poor” millionaire?

The definition of a poor millionaire is someone who is living just to make money. On the contrary, a rich millionaire is someone who values the fullness of their life while making a profit doing what they love.

Results of a recent news poll conducted for the Australian Institute found that 62 percent of Australians, including 48 percent of the richest 20 percent, believe they cannot afford to buy everything they really need. Among those who live in households with an income of more than $100,000, fewer than five percent consider themselves prosperous, with more than 12 percent considering themselves poor. These results suggest that money is not the only determinant of real-life wealth.

The definition of a poor millionaire is someone who is living just to make money. On the contrary, a rich millionaire is someone who values the fullness of their life while making a profit doing what they love. But doing what you love and making millions do not have to be mutually exclusive.

If an individual is truly doing what they love to do, they cannot help but feel prosperous and grateful for where they are and what they have. You cannot put a monetary value on being in love with life.

So how do you make one hell of a profit and still get into heaven?

  • Make your spiritual life a business and your business life a spiritual experience.
  • Do not receive something for nothing or give something for nothing.
  • Save 10 percent of all you earn. The more you have, the more you attract.
  • If you cannot wait to retire, you are in the wrong business.
  • Anything you do consumes time. To maximize the value of your time, prioritize your interactions.
  • Organize and lead your inner parts purposefully.
  • Remember, desperate people do desperate things, while inspired people do inspired things.
