It is an astonishing fact that you are richer than what you think, if all your basic needs like food, clothing and shelter are fulfilled. The reason for this is as much as 45% of the human population lives below the poverty line and without necessary amenities.

But richness is not confined to money alone but it has several other meaningful aspects. In fact, you can easily live a rich and worthy life if you know or accept that life stands for like it fully and enjoy. You can make it rich if you understand that life itself is a regular, interesting & cheerful hobby or habit since almost all the events in life are regularly occuring and rich in surprises and fun.

Life becomes abundant and rich if we live it with mutual cooperation, understanding and using a give and take policy. No man is an island and a single tree cannot become a garden since all of us have dependents like our family members at the home and our fellow staff or colleagues and other friends at the workplace. 

We must have zero selfishness and dedicate our time and efforts for the welfare of other human beings around us to make our life really rich and worthy.
