Your wealth is not a measure of how much you have, but how much you are capable of generating in every moment.
If you had won a million dollars in the lottery but are capable of generating zero dollars, you wealth is virtually zero.
Wealth is what you have left when all your money has been taken from you.
That is why people who are truly wealthy never become poor even after they have lost all their money.
They are able to create money on demand. The secret of wealth is creation and not possession.
A poor person who is incapable of generating income, but happens to win a million dollars, is still a poor person with a million dollars.
A rich person who is capable of generating lots of money, but happens to lose all his money, is still a rich person with no money.
Money does not make you rich.
It is the power to obtain wealth that makes you rich.
A million dollars in the hands of someone without power to create wealth, will soon become nothing. In the hands of someone with power, it never runs out.
