People are often under the misconception that wealth is just money – cold hard cash. Actually, wealth in itself is a lot more than that. Wealth is made up of not only cash, but items of intrinsic value.
These are items you could sell if you wished and would generate a good sum of money. These might be antiques – that table your great aunt Jemima left you could be worth $$$. It is art, sculpture, collectible china, antique furniture, stamp collections, medal collections and even old children’s story books.
It is also precious metals, ie gold, platinum and silver, precious stones- diamonds, sapphires, rubies and emeralds.
You will see that you may already be wealthier than you first thought. The more obvious forms of wealth are stock and shares, real estate and fixed interest investments.
What is it that you have in your life that is valuable to others? Do you have hidden wealth in your home already that you have not acknowledged?
