Why Do You Want to Be Rich

Don’t fall into this trap

Coming out of school I was eager to make a name for myself and start making money. I was tired of being a broke college student and eager to prove that I could be somebody.

Wake Up Call

All I was worried about was making money. I didn’t see a problem with it until I got a serious reality check.

Why I want to Be Rich

  1. Be on my own time: I want the freedom to use my time as I see fit. Time is the most valuable resource we have and I’d rather spend my time doing what I love. Not having to worry about money certainly helps with that.
  2. Donate to Organizations with a good cause: There are tons of great organizations out there making a difference in the world and I’d love to support them. I know any amount of money helps, but if I was wealthy then I’d be able to make a bigger difference and reinforce more positive change.
  3. I want to be able to spoil myself from time to time. I’m not going to be superficial and act like I don’t want to buy nice things. We all want nice things in some shape or form. The other reasons definitely take precedent over this one, but hey I’d love to buy an expensive gaming PC and a bunch of brand new guitars whenever I pleased.

Rich is Subjective

Listing out my goals like this really gave me a different perspective. It gave me a why. An actual goal to work towards other than just making money to make money.

I read and I write to gain a perspective of this amazing world and the people I share it with.
