    income to me is a source of money coming in no matter where it is from, for a means to 'get by' every month, and wealth to me is.... um..... hmmm... ok im stuck.... wait... i think i got it. wealth to me is money already making itself so to speak. then again, i could be wrong. after all, i did get stuck on the wealth part lol

    You had me rollin' ... LOL.

    I think if income as cash flow. Money coming in.

    I think of wealth as what is left over in abundance.

    Most people measure wealth in dollars, but this needn't be the case.
    Wealth could be a pantry full of food or a stock of resources.

    There is something that I want to point out to you in your response. You mention "getting by".
    What if we changed that mindset to thriving? How can we thrive?

    oh wow then that goes into a whole 'nother area then. because you have to have that same mindset in the world of business too. you can't think in terms of 'getting by' but instead, you want to think in terms of being successful and it will most likely happen. that's why i like about the world of business. things are up to you. your attitude determines how things are going to go.

    I like to do little things to get me in the mindset of thriving rather than "getting by".

    A pantry full of food is pretty security satisfying.
    Buying what you need in bulk is pretty security satisfying.
    Having some money saved is pretty security satisfying.

    Reducing those agents, bills, and liabilities that detract from my financial security is pretty security satisfying.

    Security or the feeling of it can lend to a thriving mindset, in my opinion.
