Our religious teacher taught us not introduces ourselves as kids from poor families. She instead taught us to always introduce ourselves as kids from developing families. She told us a poor parent cannot afford to take a child to school. When I looked back at our home, we were not the poorest. Our neighbors were poorer than we were.
I think Iwill write a whole book in future about my experience of getting rich without money but for now let me share notion and knowledge or testimony in faith's sense, how I am becaming rich without money.
First of all let us agree that none of us was born with money. Yes, some are born in families with money but no one is born with it. Even Jesus said to be king of kings was never born with money. He had to support his mother's pottery and His father's carpentry projects to earn a living.
I think we all know money. According to the 6th Edition Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary, money is a person's wealth including property. Wealth is the state of being rich and property in this sense means a thing or things that are owned by somebody. I became rich after knowing the difference between 'wealth' and 'property' but again that would be a whole new article to write.
I have searched for my own understanding of wealth and property. My wealth became my brain and my property was to become my brain's products. In other words, if my brain was perceived as my wealth, I was to begin using it to produce my property. The following paragraphs below shows how I have used my brain to posses my property.
I became rich after discovering that every human being had same brains. There are no types of brains. All brains are the same minus mental disorders or diseases. There is only one single killer disease, AIDS. All the others are preventable and curable.
I learnt Poverty was a mind's disease. If all human beings had same brains, how comes some were poor and others rich? I set myself questions and I searched for their appropriate answers daily. I read books, pray to God and visit places. I have learnt some people had money and property but were not happy and peaceful. I had discovered my wealth is peace and my property is happiness.So, my property create wealth which is peace,easy to say.
I was amazed to find out that I needed no money and material property to be peaceful and happy. I detected around the neighborhoods and learnt that most people and society calls rich, were not happy and peaceful. They were controlled, slept little hours, had lust, were materialistic, addicted, corrupt, egocentric, stressed, tired and so on. And that was not making them happy and peaceful despite their huge bank accounts and investments.
I decided my brain was my wealth creation tool or business asset, and happiness was my property. I decided to invest my time and energy in in becoming happy in whatever circumstances. I did not rush to real material assets like the girls I must meet or cars I must drive before I die. Most people think having material wealth like dream girls, houses, cars, aircrafts, big offices and etcetera is being rich or wealthy.
They may be right but to me, being rich is to being happy and peaceful. I am not complaining. I had no money when I chose peace and happiness to be my wealth. With my positive, optimistic, pro-active and focused mind, I began my journey to acquire peace and Happiness and in the process, money started coming and I am growing rich day by day.
I don't beg for bed, food, drink, clothes, air and time, I move and have my being. I am happy and peaceful despite crimes and wars in my Geography. I know what I want and my life is an awesome journey to go for it. If you have no money yet, do not simply give up and put your arms in the air, you can be a millionaire if not a billionaire! It is a matter of knowing what you want and why you want it,dearly.
Get a piece of paper and pencil or pen and set yourself questions on what you want, how, why and when you want to get rich. When you are done,be committed to look for appropriate answers daily. In not more than a few years from today, you will begin becoming rich and everyday will leave you richer. I have done the experiment. Try it out. Boom!
