Spend your time and money experiencing what life has to offer instead of buying material things that have short-term gratification. Spend time/money on your health, on experiences, or helping others.
Below are three ways to improve your personal wealth, and become the richest person on earth.
1. GET A PERSONAL COACH
Get yourself into the best shape of your life. Become healthy, fit and strong, and become you 2.0. This is an investment, and is the secret to living a longer, better life. Having a coach, whether it be a life coach or personal trainer, will keep you accountable and motivated.
2. TAKE A HOLIDAY
Instead of those big night-outs drinking, save for a few weeks and go on a little holiday. Most people spend between $200-$400 on a night out. If you avoid that for a month or two, you could take a trip for 4-5 days that will give you lasting memories, and if nothing else, make people jealous on social media!
3. HELP OTHERS
This one is simple. Helping others is one of the most fulfilling things you can do, and it will make you feel rich. Donate to a charity, or volunteer with a local organisation. Studies have shown that helping others through volunteering or charities enhances an individual’s overall sense of purpose. People are also more likely to perform acts of generosity after seeing someone else do the same. This can inspire others to make a difference, too.
