This makes sense:

Weirdness happened again here: I was going to ask royster about action towards abundance vs. actions toward wealth - but his post has disappeared. I think general abundance will lead to more satisfaction than monetary wealth.
Tim, what you're saying about "lack" applies to people who overspend or get into debt because of the scarcity mindset. What puzzles me are the Gettys and Carnegies of the world whose riches seemed to go hand in hand with a Scrooge-like cheapness. Seems to me they acted out of a sense of perpetual lack also: no amount of money was ever enough. Yet they were very successful with this mindset.
Yet we have other successful wealthy people, like some celebrity entertainers, for example, who actually enjoy their money, live high on the hog and are also very generous and charitable.
