- COMFORTABLY DONATE MONEY TO CHARITY
After keeping enough to generate ‘passive income’ to cover our monthly bills, enough amount to invest, and to support your lifestyle, and don’t forget to save for the kids’ college funds, you will have this desire to share your wealth to those who needs it. Sharing is always caring.
- HIT THE BUCKET LISTS
While postponing so many experiences during your youth times and working extra hard to be where you are now, at some point in the future when you already made it, make sure you start tackling your bucket list one by one. Experience your life to the fullest, go bungee jumping, hike Himalayas, cruise to Alaska.
- PLAY IT RIGHT AND YOU ARE SET FOR LIFE
The key is you need to be very mindful about all things, including your wealth security, your spending habits, your passion for life, and planning for future.

Having just "enough amount" to enjoy your personal interests can mean you're set for life.
So, to put it simply, rich in life is one that's filled with experiences that you value. It doesn't really even matter what those experiences are. Whatever it is that makes you happy while you're doing it, do it (wisely)!
