5 EXTREMELY RICH PEOPLE WHO LIVE AS POOR

5 EXTREMELY RICH PEOPLE WHO LIVE AS POOR Please, tell me, have you ever dreamt of becoming a millionaire? A beautiful life, a couple of planes, a mansion in the Caribbean and a company producing your favorite kind of sweets… Well, why not? Real millionaires can afford all this! But yeah, not all the owners of huge fortunes like to waste money. Even if they have the opportunity to live a luxurious life, they are still modest and thrifty people. Or they just hide carefully their wealth and luxury items, so that no one could ever find them. And now we are gonna show you the most modest rich people.

11 Years Living Off-Grid in an Earthship Style House

Hélène Dubé and her partner Alain Neveu from Es-Cargo (http://www.es-cargo.qc.ca/) have lived off-grid in Quebec, Canada for 11 years in a self-built earthship style home made of recycled tires filled with earth and large south-facing windows. *** Hélène is giving a workshop on April 1st if you want to check it out: https://ah186.isrefer.com/go/affhd0002/AFFHD0002/ Hélène donne un atelier le 1er avril intitulé: "Planification d'un rêve, techniques de construction et réglementation." Pour en savoir plus: https://ah186.isrefer.com/go/affhd0002/AFFHD0002/ *** Their water is gravity fed from a spring-filled cistern placed up the hill from their home, their power comes from solar energy, and they use a composting outhouse toilet. For refrigeration, they make their own ice during the winter by freezing water in recycled windshield washer jugs outside, and then they store them in a root cellar inside unplugged chest freezers insulated with sawdust. They manage to keep their food cold with these homemade ice blocks from January to July, and then they get ice blocks from a neighbour. For hot water they use approximately 200 lbs of propane each year. For heat they have a homemade rocket stove that is an efficient way to burn wood, and they also use it as a cooktop in the winter. They would eventually like to be self sufficient in their food production and have gardens, hens, and they've begun to build an aquaponic system as well. But they do find that growing all of their own food, running workshops, and staying on top of all their other projects to be an incredible amount of work for just two people. They're hoping to attract more people to the property to form a small community of inspired and like-minded permaculture enthusiasts. To learn more about Hélène and Alain's off-grid lifestyle and about any upcoming projects and workshops, you can check out their website and follow them on Facebook: Es-Cargo: http://www.es-cargo.qc.ca/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ESCargoQc Their posts are in French but they both speak French and English.

Life Lessons From 100-Year-Olds

We asked three centenarians what their most valuable life lessons were, and also their regrets. The conversations that followed were remarkable. They talked about the importance of family, people, relationships and love. Their view on life, as an elderly citizen with a lot of experience is truly an inspiration and motivation. Enjoy the video!

Minimalist Living on 10k/year in an RV, Simple and Uncomplicated Life

Click "SHOW MORE" below for additional links to the washing machine, books, etc.: Watch my TED Talk on Gratitude: https://youtu.be/LIFTxRJfLTM Read the books: http://amzn.to/2CJylig Follow on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BuddhistBootCamp BaseCamp Washing Machine: http://amzn.to/2zJWsYw Portable RV Water Tank: http://amzn.to/2CjL7kM DryFlush Waterless Toilet: http://amzn.to/2DqTTgs Driveway Surfing / RV Hosting: https://www.boondockerswelcome.com/ Autographed books to support the Prison Library Project: https://www.buddhistbootcamp.com/product-page Audiobook narrated by yours truly: http://amzn.to/2Fentaq And.. I got the prayer flags from a small independent bookstore in Grants Pass, Oregon, called Aquarius Books & Gifts. I'm pretty sure if you call and tell them you want to order the same prayer flags that Timber Hawkeye got from them about a year ago, they'd be able to help you (AND you'd be supporting an independent bookstore, how cool is that?) This RV is the Minnie Winnie 25B, and almost any RV dealership can offer you up to a 20 year loan from the model year of the vehicle (if your credit qualifies you, of course). Subscribe to this channel to see the amazing food prepared in this small kitchen, and chew on some food for thought as well. We can all benefit from redefining what "enough" looks like, and re-think what we think we "need." I work part time so I can live full time, and so can you. Maybe not to this extreme, but certainly downsize, minimize, and reevaluate some "stuff." It's possible to do all the things you SAY you wish you could do (volunteer more, read books, take yoga, breathe, cook, bake, hike, kayak, and lead a stress-free life in service to others). This is a tour of my RV followed by an explanation of my transition from a conventional lifestyle to being liberated and at peace. This isn't very different from renting a room in a friend's house, except it's significantly less intrusive. If you have more than enough, don't raise your standard of living, raise your standard of giving. Build a longer dining table, not a taller fence. Live simply so that others can simply live. Namaste. When you get little, you want more. When you get more, you desire even more. But when you lose everything, you realize LITTLE was enough. _/|\_ ______ Timber Hawkeye, bestselling author of Buddhist Boot Camp and Faithfully Religionless, prescribes gratitude as medicine for people to heal themselves from the inside out. His message invites the best version of you to resurface, inevitably leading to the true meaning of success (being happy), and better health (mental, physical, emotional and spiritual). In an ongoing effort to eradicate society's ever-growing sense of entitlement, which he considers nothing short of an epidemic, and replace it with a sense of appreciation for each breath we are given, Timber's intention is to awaken, enlighten, enrich and inspire, by sharing mindfulness-enhancing techniques that anyone can relate to and implement in their daily lives.

Yves quit his job even though he had it all: a big salary, health benefits and a pension plan. He sold his downtown condo, too. Why did he decide to drastically simplify his life? Because he was unhappy and unfulfilled. A couple of years ago, he went on a 10-day silent retreat and, after much soul-searching, realized that his job and his stressful lifestyle needed to go. Now, a year and a half later, he's living a minimalist lifestyle in a small bachelor apartment, riding his bike to work, and working 3 days a week at a grocery store. He has more time to spend with the people he loves, and a lot less stress. Does he regret his downshifting decision? Watch this video to find out!

Thanks for watching!
