In this book, I have set out on a journey to unravel the real meaning of wealth, while seeking to highlight the very significant distinction between true wealth and mere riches. I seek to unearth this eternal truth through the remarkable stories the men and women in this book have shared with my co-author and myself. Some of them shared their stories with me first hand, while the stories of a few others were learnt through consummate literary research. We gently draw back the curtains, for a peek into the fascinating lives of these personalities, by opening this book of the non-fiction genre with the stories of Dr. Lei Lewis and the various authors. I begin with my very own personal story of truth and self-discovery.
One of the first things I did when I set out on my mission of creating and nurturing the wealthy mindset in people was to carefully articulate a concept of wealth that comprehensively defines wealth, especially within the context of what appropriate mindset is required by the average individual to attract wealth. During my own journey, I have also found it very necessary to enlighten people on the very significant difference between 'money' and 'wealth,' fully realizing that the greatest confusion in the lives of most people is the ability to properly situate these two very fundamental aspirations in their proper places as they journey through life. Thankfully, I have also learnt a lot as I set out on my journey to create Women of Wealth Magazine as the vehicle for my crusade.
The overall quality of our existence is necessarily dependent upon the sum of our experiences. Naturally, our more pleasant experiences are the ones that are of greater significance in qualifying that existence as being totally fulfilling. At Women of Wealth Magazine, we celebrate wealth because it can give us those pleasant experiences. But we also celebrate wealth and the wealthy, not because wealth is an end unto itself, there being other important parameters that guarantee a successful life, but because one of our greatest possessions on this earthly plane is freedom, and wealth can give us this freedom. We believe that it will be good for people to experience this freedom, for with it, many an illusion they labor under will dissipate into thin air, allowing them to see more of the beauty in their world each day of their life.
