Sick of his sons whinging, one day a billionaire wanted to show his son how the other half lived. He wanted his son to realise how fortunate they really were. So he called his personal assistant.
The billionaire had his personal assistant arrange accommodation for his son and himself to live with a penniless family who lived just on the outskirts of a deprived dull looking village.
At the end of the week the billionaire was blown away by the experience. They became closer, happier and full of playful energy.
The billionaire grateful, invited the family and new friends to stay at their luxurious home for a week. The penniless family were amazed by the bond between father and son and snapped up the invite.
The family were overwhelmed at first by the enormous beautiful looking mansion. The living room was bigger than the families village. The tv was as big as their home. The sofas were so comfortable you could instantly fall asleep. The fires were always burning and every room was very warm and cosy.
At the end of the week the penniless father asked his son what he thought of his experience. Both father and son completely out of sync with reality suddenly realised something. It was the first time they had held a conversation or even sat within a close proximity for more than a minute for the first time in a week. The family had enjoyed time in the billionaires home but they noticeably had become distant with each other.
The quality of lifes experiences with the people we love defines our true wealth. Whether you're material rich or poor, the wealth that matters most is in the relationships you have with family.
