How many times have you been inspired by someone that has it all and didn’t earn it?  The answer for most is never; there is truly something amazing about a rags to riches story.  Riches don’t necessarily mean “stuff” I’m speaking of something different; family, friends, accomplishments, even respect. 

Strive for something other than possessions and you will be amazed by the rewarding emotions that come along with it.  When we are young money, cars, clothes, fancy dinners and endless amounts of “stuff” we believe makes us happy.  The truth is being happy is a way of life and “stuff” only creates a sense of contentment for a short period of time.  Focus in on changing a life, mentoring a colleague, building true and honest relationships at work and home and feel how “RICH” you will truly be at the end of each day.
