Some people want a lot, some people are less able. In addition, many things that make you wealthy are not for sale. And as everyone knows, the last shirt has no pockets.

How important is ownership?

Overview

Some possessions are necessary and / or make life easier: a roof over their heads, food, clothing, savings. Some properties are pure luxury: an expensive handbag, a sporty sports car, a holiday home by the sea with a smart yacht.

In between, there are many gradations. What some consider necessary for life is unimaginable luxury in other regions of the world. For many, ownership means power and success. Clothes make people - possessions too.

How prosperous are you?

Overview

Are you in the mood for an experiment? Then take pen and paper and answer the following questions:

  • Estimate how many items you have.
  • Which 20 things do you need daily? What did these cost?
  • Which 5 things do you need only once a month? What did these cost?
  • Which 5 things do you need only once a year? What did these cost?
  • What 5 things do you really depend on? For what reason?
  • What 5 possessions do you care most about and are afraid of losing them?
  • What possessions do you satisfy, make you content?
  • What do you estimate: what percentage of your property could you do without?

What does your feeling say

Overview

In a further step, simply ask yourself the following questions:

  • How are you when you consciously deal with the things you surround yourself with that you need?
  • Do you feel feelings of want because you do not have some things?
  • Does it motivate you to muck out?
  • Do you remember some of these things from past times?
  • Does it stress you when you think about moving with all these things?

When does ownership make you happy?

Overview

There are interesting studies on ownership. Happiness is about dealing with things you do not have but would like to own soon. The anticipation and the buying trigger the "kick", less the possession in and of itself.

Maybe you too will like many: The joy of ownership usually disappears after a few months. Also, ownership only seems to make happy to a degree.

Like Hans in luck

Overview

Those who have about twice as much as the population average feel happier than the average. With more possession falls the happiness curve again: Super rich are not automatically super-happy.

And some biographies, studies show, prove the fairy tale of "Hans in luck". Only when one no longer hangs on his possessions, man / woman feels free.

Power free?

Overview

Like the billionaire who has given away everything from his own free will, and now feels happier and more free in his only 25 square meter mountain hut than with glider, luxury villa and great fortune. Matching words: "He who is wealthy is capable of doing what he wants."
