To sum up

Your relationship with money depends on who you think you are. This post summarizes how you should think and act as a wealthy individual.

It is rather a cycle of abundance:
You treat yourself and people as they are more important than money.
You do more of this positive spending as you are confident with less (poverty practice) and with more (ability to generate money).

Now I wish you a happy, wealthy lifestyle. So go out there and make your friends happy.

Be confident; your money is a gift.

Goal check: I learned how to think and act like a free man with abundant money in a pocket.
