What do you need to be rich?

You are rich if... own properties in lots of countries. have more than one car. can change your mobile phone every year. need to insure your jewelry. pay someone to do your ironing. can holiday abroad every year.
...your children have a room just for toys and games. pay others to decorate the house. need a gardener to look after your gardens.

You are rich if... own more than one property. can buy a new car every year. have a mobile phone for all your family.
...your children have lots of toys in their bedroom. can buy ice creams when you go out for the day. can holiday every year.

You are rich if...
…you can pay the rent or mortgage every month.
…you throw away clothes because they are out of fashion. can eat out in restaurants. can send your children to university. can keep a pet.

You are rich if...
...there are more rooms in your house than people. can buy new clothes before they wear out. goes off before you can eat it. can buy presents at birthdays and Christmas. can visit local attractions from time to time.

You are rich if...
...some of the family don't have to share a bedroom. can replace clothes as they wear out. can choose what to cook for each meal..
...some of your family have a job.
...all your children go to school.

You are rich if...
...the whole family can sleep in the house at the same time can buy toys the children can share.
...some of your children go to school.
...there is food for every meal.

You are rich if... have a place to stay that is safe at night.
...your family eats something every day. have a change of clothes for every family member.

So how rich are you?
How far do you think this could go on? Where do you think you wouldn’t feel rich any longer? How little do we need to feel rich?
Do you even need to be rich to be happy?
Since you have read this using a computer, it's likely that you are in the richest 5% of the population of the world.
