Is money what you think of when you think about wealth? Money is tangible–you can touch it, save it, spend it, put it in your pocket. What about the intangibles that are not measured or counted into your “net worth?”

There are so many things that make our lives richer that are not money. What if you started to become consciously aware of all the abundance, wealth, and prosperity that are in your life? What would you find? What is already in your life that you can’t deposit in the bank or spend, but that would make you feel poorer if it wasn’t there?

I invite you to put a value on things like friends, family, favors, love that come to you every day by acknowledging them. You might not be able to come up with a dollar amount, but these all add value to your life in big ways.  Give it a try–count your blessings and make them a part of your “net worth.” You might be surprised at how wealthy you really are—and how much more prosperous you become just by paying attention.

Here are a couple of ways to keep track of the “invisible” but priceless wealth in your life.
