What is wealth? 65% of Americans say it's health, not money

When 1,000 Americans were asked to define wealth, 65 percent selected "having good physical health" compared to 35 percent choosing "having a lot of money," according to a recent survey from Charles Schwab.


While the majority preferred being in shape over earning a large paycheck, research shows exercising may actually pave the path to earning a lot of money, according to CNBC which cited author Tom Corley's five year study of self-made millionaires.

"Seventy-six percent of the rich aerobically exercise 30 minutes or more every day," Mr. Corley wrote in his best-selling book. "Cardio is not only good for the body, but it's good for the brain."
