YesterdayÂ I stumbled across The Global Rich List. Â Â I took the time to enter my annual income, and when I saw the results I was thinking, “Wow, I am pretty well off compared to a lot of people.” Â Then I realized that I hadÂ inadvertentlyÂ left a zero off of the end of my income. Â When I put the right amount in I realized that compared to a vast majority of the world my family isÂ extremely extremely blessed.
Most of us don’t realize how blessed we truly are. Â We compare ourselves toÂ billionaires like Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and Saudi Princes. Â Often we dream about what we do if we had their kind of money. Â The irony is that much of the world dreams about having as much money as Â you and I do. Â They dream of being able to put food on the table, or drink clean water or go to school. Â Forget dreaming of a house with plenty of rooms and a built in pool, many people around the world just dream of having a roof, of any kind, over their head.
If you haven’t done it already visit the The Global Rich List. Â See how much you have compared to most of the world. Â Then, take the time to be thankful for all you have this holiday season. Â Take the time to teach your children how blessed they are.
