This I believe

I come from a family of ten children. When I was growing up my family

wasn’t rich or poor, but I always felt we had everything we needed. I

always felt fortunate for what I had. The reason I felt confidence in

what we had was how my mom raised us. She taught us that being rich

is in your mind. It is not how much you possess. I found that was true

over the years because I met some very rich people, at least I thought

they were rich, but they were always whining about something they

didn’t have, such as a brand new car or a bigger house. Even though I

don’t have a new car or a big house I always feel rich. So, I believe

that being rich is not how much you possess, but what is in your mind.
