Being rich is having abundant valuable material “things” , such as houses, cars, jewels, etc, which money can buy.
Being enriched is having a life that’s abundantly meaningful, substantial, and rewarding which money can’t buy.
Having an enriched life is a noteworthy achievement. It’s not only about having lots of money.
What does having an enriched life mean to you?
Self worth? Security? Comfort? Freedom? Happiness? Significance? Power? Motivation? Inspiration? Respect? Love?Connection? Accomplishment? New Stimuli? Variety? Contribution? Helping Others? Independence? Learning? Growth? Legacy?
Have you really even thought about what an enriched life means to you? Think carefully about this:
- If you had all the money you needed now and in the future, what would you be doing differently from what you are doing today?
- If you knew that you had only a few years to live, what specifically would you change about your life now?
- If you had complete freedom to decide, what unfulfilled dreams would you pursue, and which people would you choose to enrich your life?
- If you had to refocus your life in order to pursue your unfulfilled dreams, what meaningless activities that waste your time would you eliminate, and what people who you do not enjoy would you avoid?
By taking the time to answer these questions, you’ll discover who is the real you and what you really want out of life. I did this for myself in order to have better control of my life and time, to effectively manage my finances, to build and maximize my business’s value for eventual sale, and to take the action steps necessary to create an enriched life beyond my business.
My overall success inspired me to establish a groundbreaking step-by-step, systematic, comprehensive program of strategic activities as a guide for other business owners based upon the following formula:
Strategic Life and Time Management + Strategic Financial Management + Strategic Business Value Building = Total Life Enrichment
If you’re an entrepreneur, feel free to ask me any questions you might have about the program.
