I Want To Be Super Rich

I recently bought my boyfriend Russel Simmons new book "Super Rich", and I haven't really read it myself but I think the title sells itself.
I mean who wouldn't want to walk into a store and buy a book called "Super Rich", especially if it's not about someone bragging about how rich they are but telling YOU how rich you can be. huh? huh? huh?

(I swear Russel Simmons should have hired me as his publicist. Look at me go).

Any way my point is, who wouldn't want to be super rich? you know, the money, the money and the cars, the cars and the clothes... I suppose right? well wrong. Okay, not wrong but not right either.

Being super rich (at least to me) is not about all that fancy stuff, yes I would kill, love like to have them but being without them doesn't make me any less of a person.
I quote some guy I'm not sure of, for credibility's sake lets just call him John. He says, "richness is at least as much a matter of character, of outlook and attitude, as it is of money"
In other words our dear John here is saying richness has many different shadings of meaning, and like everything else, it's not just black and white.

When I picture my life in the future, and by future I mean as soon as tomorrow, what I see is good relationships and good health. I see truck loads of happiness, banks full of laughter, shelves upon shelves of compassion, and wallets filled with love. For me having these things will make me richer than I could possibly imagine. Yes, yes I know love and happiness doesn't put a BMW in the driveway, but neither does that rotten attitude. Life is really what you make of it and how you see it, I know a lot of people who say love can't put a ring on this finger, and at the same time do nothing about making the money that can. So at the end of the day they are left with no love and no money... shame.
One must have their own way of seeing the world for it to be true, and if that way is negative, then trust that to be true.

Purpose is born from people that know true happiness, so being happy and having laughs does not mean there is no need to have a job because you are already rich, no... check it, getting a job will make me happy, having someone who is proud of it for me will make me happier, making a million bucks a year would make me happy, having someone to spoil with that will make me happier, so you see by being happy the purpose to do more and do better is there.

At the end of the day you may have all you want, the money, the success, but if you have no one to love and no one to return that love then it means little. Achievements are far greater when you have people who support you, experiences are richer when you have someone to remember them with you, downfalls (and oh there will be downfalls) are much easier when there people to sit with you.
Laughter is fuller, songs are louder and victories greater.

"If cakes can be rich without having money, what's the problem with you?"

I read somewhere that anyone and everyone can either be super rich, plain rich, poorest rich, or everyone else? I refuse to be everyone else, and I can't call myself poorest rich because I know what to do with my riches, I love, I care, I support, and I'm forgiving. So that just means I'm plain rich, I have a rich life. I have friends that adore me and a family that loves me, and from where I stand there truly is more to being rich than just the money, and from here on out I want to be super rich.

So tell me which one are you, the super rich, the plain rich, the poorest rich, or everyone else?



  1. It's sort of along the lines of "peace comes from within". Same thing with wealth; personal wealth goes alot further than material -- but when you're rich with personal wealth, chances are you will have some semblence of material wealth along with it. I do believe that positive energy yields positive results; actually - I'd say I'm sort of proof of that theory.

    So, very fun blog! Love the header... and so very funny - I have to share with you that in my store - I sell a wide variety of South African food items! I love, love, love them- they're incredibly delicious. And, we have a rather large South African population in the town that my store is in (who knew?!?!).

    Lovely to "meet" you. :)

  2. Thank you for visiting my blog... (",) means a lot to me.

    Ooooooh really? awesome! what food items are these? Glad you love them!

    Say hi to my fellow South Africans for me.

  3. Hmmm. Let's see.... I carry Mrs Balls Chutneys, Biltong, Rooibos Tea Jelly, Eet Sum More Cookies, Chockits, Angel Biscuits, Walters Nougats, Peri Peri Rub & Sauces, Hot Atchar.... I know I'm forgetting some other things. But that's the food items of the top of my head -- and then of course there's the wine. :)
