20 Things the Rich Do Every Day

Today I came across this article that a friend of mine posted online and I read it and apparently there were some people that felt offended by the post and others didn’t.  I read it and found it intriguing and more than anything motivating to make some changes in my life in order to fall into the category of wealthy.  Now one thing is that some people view that wealth is dealing with Money, however I don’t feel that way, I think wealth means in all areas of ones life.  Being Wealthy in your relationship, wealthy in your health, money, socially, etc.  So you read it and come to your own conclusion.  I wish you a great 2014 may you say blessed throughout the year and may you become wealthier in all areas of your life.  Thanks Roger for the post!
