This is stren #28.  It will inspire you to become a Mental Wealth millionaire.  You will learn why Mental Wealth millionaires create a joyous, meaningful life experience and be inspired to become one of the teachers we require for world peace.

           What is Mental Wealth? [“mental wealth” is the equivalent to “spiritual wealth” – the nonphysical concepts that provide meaning to our life experiences beyond material wealth]

           Simply stated, Mental wealth consists of those wisdoms most certain to lead to success in any endeavor.  We have become the supreme rulers on earth because of our ability to acquire knowledge, store it, share it, and pass it forward to continue the process of growing our power.  It is said that we stand on the shoulders of the knowledgeable giants who preceded us.  We become increasingly powerful creators as we uncover more secrets.  Power may be applied constructively AND destructively.  Mental wealth is our means to consistently direct power to the beneficial outcomes that fulfill our needs and wants.  Mental wealth also equips us to weather the storms we all experience.  True wealth grows as we acquire those wisdoms that equip us to use our best to do our best. 

           Any individual who is willing to study, practice, and risk freeing themselves from the dictators who first determine our way of thinking, specifically instinct and tradition, can become a Mental Wealth Millionaire.  We do so by acquiring the common sense wisdoms that have been proven by others to work.  Our mental wealth grows one wisdom at a time.  Collect enough and we eventually free ourselves from fate and circumstance, what nature and our nurturers have made of us.  Mental wealth is our means to become our own best friend and our own person, i.e. attain self-mastery.  We must continue to create the new wisdoms we require to adapt to the revolutionary changes brought on by the explosive growth of our new technology.

Compare these ten benefits of Mental Wealth (MW) with the benefits of material wealth:

  1. MW  is the true source of happiness!  Every MW millionaire creates a meaningful life experience, even in the absence of physical health.  Two recent bestselling books, Tuesday with Morrie and The Last Lecture document how individuals with the worst illnesses were still able to enthusiastically enjoy their life’s experience.  Many individuals who have few of life’s toys are quite happy, while others with all the silver spoons are among the most miserable.  Materially wealthy millionaires are highly represented among those who commit suicide.  The most “got rocks” person I have ever met was in my opinion (and his) among the most miserable. 

  2. We own the wisdom we acquire and create for the rest of our life; the cleverest schemer will not take it away.

  3. Owners of material wealth commonly spend considerable energy protecting it.  They worry about how to keep it and fret when they lose it.  Most people who lose physical wealth allow their spirits to be diminished in addition to their pocketbooks.  People love giving away MW!
