There are some twitter accounts that I consider real teachers. One of them is Vala Afshar, Chief Evangelist Officer at Salesforce, who curates amazing short lists on life, business and innovation. You have probably came across one of his tweets.

This is one of them: “Things that define a rich life that have nothing to do with money”. We illustrated it a little bit.

1. You and your loved ones are healthy.

“The most important things in life aren’t things.”

2. Quality time with family, friends.

“You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.”

3. People who love and trust you.

“Your heart knows the way. Run in that direction.”

4. Work that fills you with joy, pride.

“Create a life you don’t need a vacation from.”

5. Opportunity to learn and grow.

“Few things in life come easy. And if they do, they rarely stay. So plan for the work, not the break. Because you can control that.”

6. Freedom to express the true you.

“The things that excite you are not random. They are connected to your purpose. Follow them.”

7. Courage to dare, dream and do.

“Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and think, I’m not going to make it, but you laugh inside – remembering all the times you’ve felt this way.”

8. Wanting less.

“Want what you have. That’s happiness.”
