The term “rich” means different things to different people, according to a GOBankingRates survey. According to the survey, respondents were asked what best describes how they define wealth, whether they thought they were rich — or if they expected to be rich someday.
Being rich doesn’t have everything to do with money, according to many Americans. Among respondents, the top response to the question of what they consider to be rich or wealthy was “being able to afford the lifestyle you want,” — with 37 percent selecting this response.
Furthermore, 49 percent of respondents chose no financial wealth-related responses. Despite earning a lot of money — 30% of Americans think being rich means living a happy life. A meaningful relationship with family or friends is defined as wealth by 19 percent of respondents.
And — I can’t exactly disagree.
