 In today’s fast-paced world, we often equate wealth to the amount of money or material assets we possess. But true, Authentic Wealth encompasses so much more than just financial abundance. At Abaris Financial Group, we’ve developed a comprehensive approach to understanding and achieving genuine wealth, and we’re excited to share the Abaris Model of Authentic Wealth with you.

The Five Levers of Authentic Wealth

The Abaris Model is built on the belief that there are five core resources, or as we like to call them, “levers,” that contribute to an individual’s pursuit of Authentic Wealth. These levers provide the framework for evaluating and tailoring a unique strategy for each individual and family.

Finances: While money isn’t everything, it certainly plays a crucial role in our lives. Financial security and growth are essential components of overall well-being. Understanding and managing your financial health is a foundational pillar in our model.

Mindset: Your mindset, or the way you view the world and your place in it, heavily influences your daily decisions and long-term aspirations. A growth-focused and positive mindset can help drive success and satisfaction in all areas of life.

Relationships: Humans are inherently social creatures. The quality and depth of our relationships, both personal and professional, have a profound effect on our happiness and sense of purpose. Building and maintaining strong relationships is key to achieving Authentic Wealth.

Health: Without good health, achieving other forms of wealth becomes challenging. Taking care of your physical and mental well-being should always be a priority.

Time: Arguably the most valuable resource of all, time is finite. How we choose to spend our time, and with whom, can greatly impact our sense of fulfillment and authentic wealth.

Aligning Your Levers with Values, Vision, and Impact

At Abaris Financial Group, we believe that for you to attain Authentic Wealth, it’s essential to align these five levers with your personal values, your vision for the future, and the impact you wish to make. This alignment ensures that each aspect of your life is working in harmony towards a shared goal.

For example, if one of your core values is family, then prioritizing relationships and spending quality time with loved ones becomes a crucial aspect of your Authentic Wealth strategy. Similarly, if your vision involves making a significant positive impact in your community, then your financial strategies should reflect and support that objective.

Achieving Authentic Wealth is all about balance. It’s about ensuring that your finances, mindset, relationships, health, and time are all coordinated to help you realize your unique vision and achieve the impact you want to make on yourself, your family, your community, and the world at large.
