Wealth — The word means various things to each of us. However, most viewpoints would culminate at the same point; that is of having lot of money which may be in many forms. Also, most of us are trying to obtain more and more of wealth in the way we feel most prudent.
So then, the obvious question that arises is, why is it that wealth eludes most of us when most of us strive throughout our lives to accumulate it? Why is it that if we do not get it we blame ourselves or our destiny? Why is there an imbalance in our society if we are attempting to achieve the same things?

The fact is, if you do not really desire wealth you will never feel that you have the right to own it. It is like freedom of speech. If you do not desire to talk, you will hardly ever feel the right or need to exercise your freedom of speech. There are no reservations or VIP access or restrictions for ownership of wealth. It is everyone’s right, just that very few recognise it and even fewer exercise this right.
Only if you really desire wealth will you begin to explore avenues and be open to ideas that generate and maximise wealth.

Wealth is available for all and there is complete equality available in ownership without any bias or discrimination. Let’s not forget the
