While many people dream of becoming rich, most never achieve this dream.


 

There are many ways to become rich, but many more to become poor. Of course it's usually not easy and many quick methods involve a lot of risk. so take your time and follow these steps to build your wealth. Note that people have different perceptions of what it means to be rich. In this article we will define rich as having a fortune higher than $1 million.


 

Of course, rich is a relative term with regard to financial wealth, as the average poor or middle class person today enjoys luxuries unknown to the wealthy people of ages past.


 

As We pointed out throughout history starvation and famine have been the major cause of death throughout history but in recent years, as a result of our rising wealth, food has become so abundant that obesity is rapidly becoming a leading cause of death.


 

Compared to the wealth of Bill Gates, the average American is poor. However, if we compare the creature comforts enjoyed by the same average American of today to those enjoyed by George Washington, the richest man ever to hold the office of President of the U.S., it is George Washington who comes up short.


Money Can't Guarantee Happiness - But Neither Can Poverty

 

The term rich can also be applied to the accumulation of other things besides financial wealth. Things like good health, close relationships with family or friends, good health, a rewarding career, enjoyable hobbies, etc. can also make people feel rich and well off.


 

Being rich does not necessarily mean a person is happy. The story of King Midas is a classic tale wealth and unhappiness as is George Eliot's classic Silas Marner in which the hero, Silas, finds happiness only after losing his horde of gold and taking in and raising an orphaned child. The term poor little rich girl is a further examle of a person being both rich and unhappy as it describes a person born to great wealth who is also alone and friendless in the world. However, before carrying this philosophical discussion too far, let us remember that we live in the twenty-first century of today and not the eighteenth century of George Washington and we need more money to acquire the creature comforts that are available today.
