Wealth is defined as (1):
“an abundant supply.”
It is often understood as an “abundance of valuable material possessions or resources,” but this is a misleading definition as the real meaning of wealth runs much deeper. It’s origins come from the Old English word weal or wele, which means “well-being” (2). Therefore, real wealth was once understood to be founded primarily in the well-being of a person.
As the previous pages have discussed, well-being is seated in our health, the depth of our communal ties, and the performance of work of a higher calling that caters to our abilities, interests, and values. Therefore, by nurturing your overall well-being you will set the proper foundation to earn real wealth and, with patience and perseverance, it’s monetary equivalent.
