The Definition Of A Rich Person

Someone rich is someone who has the prestige and social status that comes with living a lavish lifestyle. This definition ignores the fact that some rich people have their finances in disarray and live paycheck to paycheck or in debt.

Your wealth is the value of the assets you own

A wealthy person aims to build or acquire assets that hold their value or generate ongoing income, thus providing security and peace of mind.

  • Being rich is having the ability to spend lots of money now
  • Being wealthy is accumulating assets that allow to you preserve your money for use in the future.

The Definition of Rich

A high income and a regular acquisition of expensive stuff do not necessarily make people rich. People may have a high income, but many won’t survive three months if they are suddenly without their high-paying jobs.

Being Rich is different from being Wealthy.

Control your emotions.

Not every thought needs to come out of your mouth. Not every emotion needs to be expressed. When you say whatever is on your mind, you risk hurting others. Loose lips are a habit for 69 percent of those who struggle financially. Conversely, 94 percent of wealthy people filter their emotions. They understand that letting emotions control them can destroy relationships at work and at home. Wait to say what’s on your mind until you’re calm and have had time to look at the situation objectively.
