Let me say up front that there is one fundamental belief that I have, which makes me a sort of unicorn according to most folks:
WEALTH DOES NOT ALWAYS REFER TO MONEY
If wealth only referred to money, then most of the people in the world would have little to no value on the earth, because most people in the world have very little money! So, because I believe all people have value, then I don't define wealth only in terms of something that only a few people have an abundance of.
I believe that every human being on this earth has a purpose, their life has meaning, and each person has the capability to have wealth, in many different forms. Therefore the concept of "wealth" is not something that is only reserved for a certain few who have "money". Real wealth comes in various forms.
You can have wealth without money, and if you shift your way of thinking about wealth, the chances are you will live a happier and more joyful life.
Below I've listed 10 wealth building assets that don't cost money, but can build tremendous wealth for anyone that desires to look at wealth a little different. The interesting thing is, if you focus on these things, monetary rewards are likely to come as well.
Please "like" and "share" this fresh perspective on wealth with your friends and family, and on your social media networks. Sign up below for all of our latest blog posts.
1. TIME - Time is an asset - As long as you are breathing and blinking on this earth, you have the most vital asset any of us can have, which we call time. Time is one of the most valuable assets everyone on earth has, and no one had to pay for it.
Everyone has the same 24 hours every day, and it cost nothing to get it, but could cost you everything if you don't learn the value of it! I bet if you took a poll of everyone who has lived and died (as if that was possible), the one thing they all wish they had more of, wouldn't be money, it would be TIME!
Time is valuable way beyond money, and not surprising, if you take the right type of advantage with your time, you'd ultimately make enormous amounts of money in the process! Don't let anyone or anything that is not constructive waste your precious time. Treasure it, use it wisely, and thank God for it.
2. GIFTS - Your gift(s) are assets - God never created anything without a purpose, and the gifts necessary to fulfill that purpose, built into that which he created. Each person reading this was designed with a "gift" to deliver into the world. That means you have a purpose, and you have gifts inside of you that were designed inside of you when you were born. Your gifts cost you nothing. Identify your gifts, develop them, and use them to serve others.
Your gifts make you valuable, and that value automatically makes you wealthy.
Here are some ways to find your gift(s):
Ask your family and friends about you. What they notice about you, how would they describe and define you, how you make them feel when you are around, what do you do well, and what are you good at?
Identify what bothers you most in the world, and what troubles you more than others. Maybe you were created to fix that thing!
Figure out what it is that you do you do naturally better than most people, with little effort? It comes easy to you, but is difficult for others?
Reflect on times when you were your happiest. Usually people are happiest when they are in their purpose and doing things they were meant to do in life.
