How can you be rich? or if you are already RICH then do you want to be more RICH? My friend told me that, RICH means being contented with what you have then I asked him so being RICH is just a state of mind?He said YES, of course, it is just in your mind but not the amount of wealth you possess because I have heard about many people who were rich & peaceful even when they had nothing in their hands and about people who had enough money one can imagine but still led a bit bitter and utterly busy life…..
Let’s take an example of our epic Ramayana as everyone knows that Lord Sri Rama left the kingdom as if it is like a grass prick, to the forest as sanyasi but he was very happy & peaceful indeed with mother Sita accepting whatever happened as GOD’S gift.
While, Ravana the lead character in Negative Role, though he had a lot of wealth (accumulated illegally) was roaming around the whole world each and every day for something more than he had (as described in EPIC) in this way he was very rich externally while leading a life of absolute poverty internally and that too with constant thirst
So, what our epics ask is not to have the thirst and be satisfied with whatever you have?? No, they ask us to be satisfied always with the Wealth & fame you possess but be always thirsty about KNOWLEDGE. Because, money comes and goes, but knowledge gives you an edge over money. Once you have the knowledge, you can be gain power over money and have an ability to control it rather than being controlled by it.

As our Thalaivar (Rajinikanth) says that, “Men should not run behind Money & Fame & Women indeed they should run behind him” – Basha (Tamil Movie)
How can you be RICH?
Let your assets generate the income you need for a month.
However, I wanted to share with you one more definition about who is RICH (this is a very practical method of being rich & if you can implement this in your life then you will for sure become rich regardless of how the present market is) – If your assets generate the income needed for meeting your monthly expenses then you are rich.. How?
It’s very simple, but I can tell that the money needed for meeting your monthly expenses would be generated by your assets only (Your salary is not your asset) though you don’t go to work, which means that you can lead your life as usual without working for a must.
