Perspectives No. 6

The notion of wealth and success is very much a relative concept. Our tendency to compare ourselves to the people and things around us, regardless of whether we know them personally or not, is one of the most powerful psychological concepts driving our behaviour. Compound this notion by the power of the Internet, social media and modern day influencers, and our points of reference become highly distorted. 

The sixth instalment of the Perspectives series shows how each individual will have develop their own perspective of personal wealth that is directly influenced by the people and events that are closest to them, while exploring the concepts of entitlement and the fear of losing as they relate to how we make decisions and relate to certain events.
