10 Struggles Only The Rich Would Understand

10 Struggles Only The Rich Would Understand

How do you define wealth? Is it being financially independent or having a mountain of cash? It is difficult to find the best explanation of wealth or riches, because we all have our own definitions. Looking beyond these being rich comes with struggles only the rich can relate with. And some of these are under-listed below:

1. There is never enough time.

The richer you become the more you find value in time. The rich have a serious appreciation for time, because it is never enough. Money they understand they can regain, but time to value and appreciate what they have becomes more limited as their responsibilities increase.

2. They are not seen for who they really are.

People feel money changes the rich, that somewhere in between they have become different from who they were. Although this can be true in a sense, because they really don’t change but their circumstances do, people do not dig to find out who they really are.

3. They don’t raise their family the regular way

Raising their family goes beyond the norm because somehow, even when they try to instill the values they had as children, they have their wealth that sort of causes a divide between morals and financial security. Even if they made a great effort with their kids, it is more difficult with grandchildren who were born to splendor and think they deserve everything good they have.

4. They find it more difficult to spend money than make it

This scenario has been presented by the billionaire Warren Buffet: it is one thing to make money; it is another thing to spend it. As you make more money, it offers you more options and choices that test you to make smarter decisions. Limitations can force you to simplify, but with the rich they become spoiled for choices.

5. They struggle to find a balance in their lives

Being rich means giving just as much as you are receiving. Many do not realize how much they can offer and they are swallowed by their own wealth. Trying to balance the world of work and family becomes more tedious as they amass more wealth.

6. They are under stiff pressure

Being rich means more expectation and more worries. According to Jack Ma, becoming wealthy has put him under “much pressure.” As a rich person there are people who surround you because of what they expect from you. And there is the deal to make sure your wealth is not stolen but protected.

7. They battle with their desires

It goes beyond having a three course meal, and beyond lodging in a seven-star hotel, rather it is about the feeling of being rich and how they can manage such feeling to achieving something worthwhile and could become a legacy.

8. They are obsessed with their passions

The super rich are immersed in their passions daily, they are consumed by it and not any other thing comes close in comparison. They eat, sleep, read and are intoxicated with finding answers to a nagging problem. They struggle to find something else that can make them as happy.

9. They find it difficult to understand who is realistic to them

It is a struggle to find people who are not around you with a false pretense. People are always around you, including family, for what you can offer them rather than what they can offer you. You rarely get the love or attention you want for who you are rather than what your status is built on.

10. They are often criticized

No matter what they do or don’t do will never pass without some criticism. People will consider it unfair that they have all the money; some will despise them for not sharing it with them. The rich are often criticized and are sometimes unjustly maligned.

How To Trust Your Intuition When You’re Making a Decision

How To Trust Your Intuition When You’re Making a Decision

When you have an important decision to make, what is the first thing you do?

You want to know if your decision is right or wrong because, of course, you want to make the right choice. Do you go to friends hoping they will tell you? Do you agonize over it writing lists? Or have you ever tried to feel into the wisdom of your body? We all have the ability to read the body’s signs – inwards and out. But not everyone knows how to listen and trust your intuition.

You may have noticed two voices in your head arguing back and forth. They can get loud and confusing because they both seem concerned for your well-being.

So which one is your inner knowing and which is simply resistant? You can tell through the simple exercise of slowing down, breathing deeply and tuning into your body. You will notice very real signs.

Everyone can tune into their intuition with the simple exercise outlined below. If you want to know how to trust your intuition, read on.

The Golden Rule

A rising, light and expansive feeling in your heart is a yes. A sinking, contracting and heavy feeling in your gut is a maybe or a no, which are both a no. The best way to access these feelings is by slowing down with a deep breath.

Access Your Inner Guidance

Think of a simple decision you have to make that has two sides to it. Forgetting your background stories, take each at a time and sort of role play as you alternate each option in your mind.

Don’t go into the details of how you’ll get there or how a certain person might feel about it. Drop the stories and worries around it, simply be with one option, as though it is your choice. Remember, you can always pick up your concerns again right afterwards, if you want!

Bring option A into your mind like you are already there. It doesn’t have to be super specific, just imagine it is the direction you take. Start with the breath because it is clearing, it resets your nervous system and brings you to be completely present. Begin with your long, deep breath, exhaling all the way out.

As you sit there and think of option A, notice what is happening in your body. What sensations are there, and where? Do you feel a buzzing in a limb or a prickling sensation? Maybe butterflies in your stomach? Sit with it, not judging it. Simply take note of what your body is telling you. If it is light and expansive then you have a good option. Now, take another breath to clear out option A.

Next you will probably notice feelings in different parts of your body as you focus on option B. Again, drop the fear and doubt you might have around it. Let yourself imagine (just for now) that this is what you’re choosing. Your breath is so important in this because it slows you down and connects you with your inner guidance. Give yourself that few extra seconds to deepen your breath. It will help you feel incredibly clear.

Become curious about the feelings in your body and how they are different from the last option. What do they mean? The answer is always in the weight of them. If they rise and feel light, you have your yes. The option that feels shrouded, heavier, contracted and sinking deeper in your stomach is the warning. It sounds simplistic, because it is.

Your body has a profound and simple wisdom. When you let go of old expectations and open up to myriad possibilities, you can easily feel the best avenue to take simply by following what feels best. This is an important key in manifestation because how you feel at the start of any endeavor is generally how it will play out. So the lighter you feel about a situation, the happier it will be.

The Bottom Line

A special thing about intuition is that it never explains, it simply points the way. It may not always seem logical, but if it feels best then it will lead you to your success.

Remember, you need not to explain yourself either. Your internal yes will always be with you. The more you practice this and follow your internal yes, the stronger it will become and the more confidence you will gain! Soon you will notice it to be second nature, and the answer will come to you in a heart beat.

How have you connected to your intuition? We would love to hear how this exercise works for you. Where did you feel the yes or the no in your body?
