A very rich man sold all his possess and bought Gold bullion Bars.
He hid all the Gold bullion Bars in a very deep hole in the ground somewhere in his back yard.
For years he checked the Gold bullion Bars, and counted them over and over again.
One of his neighbours got suspicious and one day when the rich man wasn’t home, the neighbour dug the same spot, and found the Gold bullion Bars. The neighbour took them all without leaving a trace.
The next day when the rich guy went to count his Gold bullion Bars, as his everyday habit; saw the hole empty.
He started crying and screaming. The same neighbour showed up looking surprised and asked for the reason. The rich man told the neighbour how he put all his life savings in this hole, and now it’s all gone.
The neighbour said: “Put some bricks, the same amount as those Gold bullion Bars, in the hole and count them every day like you did for the past few years. There will be no difference, when you don’t use it.
Things will have value if you use them properly. There are many people in the world who have money, but they are not wealthy. And there are many others who are wealthy but they don’t have money. You think the real wealth is, being rich and having money?
True wealth is, having self-confidence, health, courage, creativity, having goals and plans, using your time in the best way, being positive and kind, not depending on money, generosity, conscience, self-examination, politeness, sympathetic heart and being thankful. These are all true wealth.
If you have a good life and you have enough money, why not use it for yourself, your family, and helping others. Generosity is like pruning branches; there will grow more out of each branch.
You have to remember that wealth is not what you have in your bank account. Your real wealth is what you share with others.”
And the neighbour gave all the Gold bullion Bars back to the rich man, and said: “I hope now you would use them correctly.”
