Why Do you Want to Be Rich? [Let’s Discuss]

Written by on August 7, 2016

Many people do not want to be rich. They just want to be comfortable. But if you would like to be rich, lets have this discussion. Don’t worry, it will be fun.

I have a friend who works for a multinational company. He’s a great guy with a very beautiful family. He earns a lot of money every month as salary, apart from annual allowances. I have heard him say many times that he does not care about making more money as long as he (more…)

    Hi Kingsley. This is a great conversation question as everyone has thought about being rich. I want to be rich so that I can provide the lifestyle that I want for my children. However, my kids don’t care if we are rich and just want to spend time with me. It’s a dilemma most parents go through.

    Hello Kingsley,

    Great post! The definition of rich is different for many people. To me being rich is not to have any debt and to be able to make choices. I am not sure about cliches like “money can’t buy you happiness”, etc. But I am sure that money can buy you lots of awesome things to name a few: a good house in a nice area, healthy foods, good health care, extra leg room on the plane and ability to help others. Not to mention, knowledge and good tutors. Why this would not make anyone pretty darn happy?!

    I love your post Kingsley! I want to have money so that I can help my family more instead of being the relative they all think needs the help! (I’m also from the Problogger Challenge)

    Hy Kingsley.
    The way pple see richness differs. But in my own perspective, money is everything and everything is money. Money is happiness and happiness is money. Pple Wil Alys say, that money is not everything, but believe me 95% of our life, revolves around money. For me oooooo, my children will never suffer, give them all the necessary things needed to build up. Influence my society positively. I even have an aspiration of having, a NGO, where I will create an Avenue to reach to the poor, handicaps and all others. I hate poverty, suffering, pains. It is said that a Hungry man is an Angry man. Even the Bible make it known to us, blessed are those that giveth, than those that receiveth. Poverty is a sin.
