It takes more than money to become a wealthy woman, according to financial expert Suze Orman. It also requires happiness, courage, balance and harmony.
A wealthy woman is "generous, clean, wise and therefore beautiful," Orman explains, and she brings these qualities into every relationship, carrying them with her in every moment of life.
So what does it take to be a truly "wealthy woman?" Click ahead to see what Suze Orman has to say.
Harmony and balance are the most important qualities of the "wealthy" qualities. They are the foundation for all the others. When you possess true inner harmony - what do you think, say feel and do is one, Suze says. When your thoughts feelings, words, and actions are not in harmony, it shows up as an imbalance. This is why these two qualties are a pair. Make sure these two qualities are present in your life and that you pay attention to your feelings, Suze counsels.
Courage gives harmony expression. When you are afraid to speak or act, courage helps you overcome your fear. The only way to conquer fear is through action. Suze suggests meditating on fears. "Think about it rationally and try to will it away, but in the end, if fear is preventing you from action, you must find your courage and act to overcome your fear.
You find the courage to silence your fear and you say what’s on your mind, you do what you believe must be done, you express your feelings.”
When you find courage to live your life in harmony and balance, when you understand and practice generosity in the truest sense - happiness spontaneously appears. Happiness is a necessity for true wealth, Suze explains.
"When you’re happy you find pure joy in your life," she says. "There are no regrets in this state of happiness – and that’s a goal worth striving for in all areas of your life.”

The quality of wisdom is more than intellectual; it is tapping into your core beliefs to make thoughtful decisions, Suze counsels. "A wise woman recognizes when her life is out of balance and summons the courage to act to correct it, she knows the meaning of true generosity, happiness is the reward for a life lived in harmony, with a courage and grace," she explains. "A wise woman knows how to summon her courage and do what is right, rather than what is easy.”
Are your important documents organized? Cleanliness is about respecting the importance of order and organization, Suze says. When your accounts are clean and orderly you can find the information you need to make good decisions. “If this quality is not up front and center and if you do not adhere to it, there is no way you will ever own the powers to control your destiny," Suze says. "Tell the universe that you have cleared the path for wealth and abundance to enter."
Beauty is what you create when you incorporate the other seven qualities into your life, Suze explains. When you take the steps to have harmony, balance, courage, generosity, happiness, wisdom, cleanliness and beauty in your life, you will exude confidence in who you are. “There is nothing more beautiful than a confident woman,” she says.
The eight qualities of a wealthy woman will keep you focused and tranquil. Suze suggests, “carry these qualities with you throughout your life and make it into a talisman to guide you every day through life’s impossible demands.” These qualities will guaranty you wealth through out your life.
