17 Jul Why we must be RICH
Do we need to be RICH ? Do we need a LOT OF MONEY ?
Or do we actually need ENOUGH berkat-money ?
What is "a lot" if punca or means of getting the money penuh penipuan, rasuah, back-stabbing, exploitation and taking advantage of others. What is “a lot” if we have “a lot” of money but not enough time for our loved ones ?
So, do we actually not need “a lot” or do we need "enough" ?
[Why SOME prominent corporate and political figures resort to playing-money-game for their career success ? Adakah sebenarnya these people do not have a goal ? They may have objective - to be rich but not clearly defined. Otherwise bila dah dapat RM10m, or maybe RM100m they will stop their quest. Its because the goal is not clearly defined - S.M.A.R.T (specific, measurable, achievable, r......, timeline) thus they don't know where to stop ! Gerrrrrram....]
Would enough+berkat wealth be more valuable than a-lot-of-money coming from questionable sources ?
Talking about valuable or “WORTH” – its placing value, nikmat and benefit beyond a price tag. Ask ourselves, are we beyond price tag ? Are we worth it ?
Ramai equate kekayaan to RM, USD – all monetary equivalent. It could also be in assets (hopefully at manageable debt or liability levels). It could also be in non-aseet or non-monetary form, tetapi able to generate future stream of cashflow. And many acknowledge that there is a priceless value in knowledge. Some place value to “time”, yes “masa itu emas”. Familiar ?
My point is, no one knows what is value or what is wealth sebenarnya. Sebabnya definition of wealth differs from one another. Its driven by one’s life values, their level of thinking and maturity and definitely one's life experiences, good or bad. Perhaps a better definition to “kekayaan” and “value” and “kaya” - apa yang kita tak ada sekarang tetapi kita perlu or mahu sangat-sangat [perlu - is mesti ada or necessary, mahu - is wants but not necessary].
Ada orang “dahaga kasih saying” or miskin kasih saying tapi kaya-raya dengan duit berjuta-juta dok diam kat bank, ASB, rantai-gelang emas and kereta Rolls Royce, “Bufori, Ferari, Masserati” (BFM 89.9) yang tersusun cantik, kilat, so under utilized. And ada yang “meleleh air liur” tengok kereta BMW 645 warna hitam, rumah bungalow RM6m (siap ada lift and swimming pool) and isteri orang lain yang cantik, sexy dan “muda”. Tak kurang pulak yang envy tengok family yang anak 10, happy and loving (maybe duit tak berapa banyak). Yang lain envy tengok orang lain sihat, hidup active and travel sana-sini, living life to the fullest !
So, I ask you again “What is KAYA” ?
