Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write an essay on the saying Wealth of the mind is the only true wealth. You should write at least 150 words but no more than 200 words.


"Wealth of the mind is the only true wealth." The enlightenment of this saying is not lost in our era as eagerness to get rich and remain so while ignoring the true meaning of wealth seems rife. The implication of this message is that mental wealth is not only a type of wealth but also the only true one.

Some claim that the nature of wealth is money related, not mind related. They focus on tangible wealth which people pay so much attention to that they lose sight of intangible wealth. Some may argue that mental wealth is not as important as financial wealth. While this view might hold a bit of truth, wealth that can be lost is never the true wealth, and it is only wealth of the mind that can actually be kept forever. You spend it, but at the same time you still own it. Since wealth of the mind can not only be gained as wealth, but also be kept while being spent, what else can be more valuable than wealth of the mind?

From my perspective, it is crucial that we should regard wealth of the mind as a type of wealth. Also, it is high time that we realized they can be ours forever. Only by doing so can we achieve greater success.
