Here are a few subtle signs that you may be getting richer than you realize.

You Don’t Obsessively Check Your Bank Account Before Purchases

As your financial situation improves, you may find that you’re less concerned about the cost of small purchases. Instead of agonizing over whether you can afford that cup of coffee or a new shirt, you’re more likely to simply buy what you want without giving it a second thought.

This is a subtle sign that your overall financial picture is looking rosier.

It’s also an indication that you’re starting to feel more confident about your ability to manage your money.

I struggled with living paycheck to paycheck for over a decade.

I know what it’s like to put that candy bar back on the shelf. I know the sinking feeling of a negative bank balance.

It’s normal to feel a bit apprehensive about spending money when you’re trying to save up or get out of debt. But once you’ve reached a point where you’re comfortable with your financial situation, you’ll likely find that you’re less concerned about the cost of everyday items.

When this happens, enjoy your newfound financial freedom, and don’t be afraid to treat yourself to the occasional latte or new pair of shoes.

You Don’t Define Wealth By a Number

For a long time, I defined wealth by a number.

I thought that if I could just make X amount of money, I would be happy and successful. But as I started to make more money, I realized that wealth is not just about a number.

It’s about your lifestyle and your ability to enjoy your life.

When I was making less money, I was always stressing about bills and worried about how I was going to make ends meet. Now that I’m making a little more money, I don’t have to worry about those things as much.

I wouldn’t consider myself rich but I can travel and buy some things that make me happy.

Here’s another example.

Let’s say you’ve been working hard to save up for a down payment on a house. You’ve made sacrifices, put in extra hours at work, and cut back on your spending in order to reach your goal.

But after years of saving, you finally have enough for the down payment and you’re able to buy your first home.

At this point, your definition of wealth has changed. It’s no longer just about having a certain amount of money in the bank. Instead, it’s about having the stability and security that comes with owning your own place.

When you being to realize that wealth is not about a number — it’s about your lifestyle and your happiness — you’ll be on the path to true wealth.

You Experience a Low-Level Background of Peace

There’s a subtle sign that you’re getting rich that most people don’t notice.

It’s a low-level background of peace.

What do I mean by this? Well, when you’re poor, there’s a constant background hum of anxiety. You’re worried about money, about making ends meet, about not being able to afford things.

This anxiety can be so constant that you don’t even realize it’s there.

But it is, and it takes a toll on your mental and emotional health.

That’s why I personally think one of the worst things about not having money is the lack of peace.

When you start to experience financial abundance, however, that background hum of anxiety begins to dissipate. You no longer have to worry about money all the time. You can relax and enjoy your life more.

This sense of peace can be incredibly healing for your mind and body.

If you’re feeling a low-level background of peace, it could be a sign that you’re finally getting rich.

Congratulations — you’ve earned it!

You Spend More On Things You Love

One of the most common unrecognized signs is that you spend more time and money on things you love.

For many people, work is a necessary evil that takes up the majority of their time. But as you start to earn more money, you’ll find that you have more freedom to choose how you spend your time.

Suddenly, work isn’t the only thing on your mind and you can afford to take some time off to enjoy your hobbies and interests.

In addition, you’ll be able to spend more money on experiences that you love. Whether it’s taking a cooking class or going on an African safari, you’ll be able to indulge your passions in a way that was previously impossible.

Therefore, if you find yourself spending more time and money on the things you love, it’s a good sign that you’re getting richer.

While it may not be as flashy as a new car or a fancy vacation home, it’s a sure sign that you’re moving in the right direction.

“Wealth is the ability to fully experience life.” — Henry David Thoreau
