Feeling rich is not just about the numbers in your bank account; it’s about the quality of life you create for yourself. You can achieve wealth and abundance through different strategies and lifestyle choices.


The more you recognize the things that will make you feel rich, the more you can enjoy your journey to financial independence. Perhaps you have reached a few of the points made below, and you can realize how close you are to the life you envision for yourself.


Here are five things that will make you feel rich:


1. Financial safety


When we think of being rich, we think of never having to worry about money again.


However, being rich can also mean having a fully funded emergency fund, minimal debt, and a plan to invest for retirement, which can give you peace of mind. Start by having at least three to six months of expenses in a High-Yield Savings Account. Invest in a diverse portfolio that aligns with your financial goals. Financial safety allows you to navigate life’s uncertainties with safety.


It does not have to be all or nothing.


Getting closer to having a fully funded emergency fund and minimal debt is already ahead of so many Americans. The feeling of financial safety you experience is a huge milestone worth celebrating! Rich does not have to be an expensive car but the sense of safety.


There are people who own expensive cars and lack financial security. Beware of who you compare yourself to. This journey is personal.


2. Time freedom


Time is the ultimate luxury!


Feeling rich involves having the freedom to spend your time as you wish. This might mean working fewer hours, trying new hobbies, or spending quality time with loved ones. Achieve time freedom by creating passive income streams, outsourcing tasks, and prioritizing what truly matters to you.


When you invest, you are buying your time. You are expected to work until retirement, but many people now collect social security and have part-time jobs because they do not have enough money to pay their bills.


Negotiating your schedule at work so you have every Friday off or every other Friday off is a way to enjoy more of your time as you please.


Two days to rest is not enough. Retiring at “retirement age” is not enough.


3. Health and wellness


Health is wealth!


Nothing else matters if you are not healthy. Invest in your physical and mental well-being through movement, a balanced diet, and mindful practices. Feeling energized and grounded enhances your overall sense of wealth. Regular health check-ups and preventative care can also save you money in the long run by avoiding costly medical bills.


Try walking during lunch or sunset while listening to your favorite book or podcast. Try spending time outdoors before you start your day while sipping your favorite homemade beverage. You will not regret spending time with yourself!


The more you do things that fill up your cup, the more you will take steps to make those rituals a habit.


Find what works for you and lean in!


4. Meaningful relationships


Richness in life is often measured by the quality of your relationships.


Surround yourself with supportive, positive people who uplift and inspire you. We cannot do life alone, and will need a phone call or to share a meal with someone at some point. But these relationships will uplift you and ground you when you need it the most.


Do not underestimate the power of building strong connections with family, friends, and the community. These connections can provide emotional support and add to daily joy.


These relationships are truly invaluable and can contribute to your overall happiness.


5. Options and opportunities


It provides freedom, security, growth, a better quality of life, and confidence.


When you have opportunities, you are not confined to a single path, which can be your personal life, career, or leisure activities. Having other opportunities during times of need will help you to feel less trapped and hopeless. Options significantly increase your quality of life!


You can live in a location that suits your lifestyle, choose a job that aligns with your passion, and pick up new hobbies. You can design a life you are in alignment with. This is a confidence booster, and you are most likely to take risks towards the things you love, which makes you feel alive!


Feeling rich is about creating a life you love, built with intention. By practicing these five points, you will feel abundant and fulfilled beyond monetary wealth.

Welcome to my corner on the internet! I’m obsessed with using money as a tool because it led me to pay off $30K in consumer debt in a year and a half, helped me save $20K in nine months to have my dream wedding in Costa Rica and is helping me build the life I never saw my family experience. Now I want to help others do the same!
