How can this be, you might well ask? After all, there are only two ways you can improve your net worth. Earn more. Consume less.
Think about it… just by being alive today you drive a chariot that Queen Nefertiti could only dream of. You live with healthcare and longevity that would amaze your ancestors.
If we feel financially out of sorts and we're not where we want to be, the solution isn't in deprivation. Indulging is ok, when it's in right relation to our means.
Generating financial wellness is about scaling your financial life appropriately. Go ahead, indulge in the same pillow that Bill Gates sleeps on. Revel in it. Add a silk pillowcase if you will. When relaxing, thrill at using the same tennis racket that Roger Federer plays with.
Just don’t plan to fly on the same private jet that Bill does, or wear the same (sponsored) watches that Roger does.
With warm regards, Peter.
