Many people seek to be poor, without even knowing they are
doing so. Such people may be impoverished by bad habits, by laziness, or by a
failure to plan. How much wiser they would be to seek to be rich, or at least to
be respectably self-supporting, by planning ahead, working hard and eliminating
costly and time wasting bad habits. The quest for riches may not be the noblest
goal, but it is a better goal than poverty.
A person should seek to be rich in wisdom, energy, and happiness. A person should not seek to be wealthy with money. A person should always want to improve who they are as a person and be an impact to the people around them. People should work to be the best they can be.
I think everyone should strive to be rich in life, while most will never achieve it I think the goal of obtaining as much money as possible to be able to provide a quality standard of living for yourself and your family is something that everything should be driven to work towards.
I would say that I believe that a person should seek to be happy. This does not necessarily have anything to do with being rich. You can be happy and live a comfortable lifestyle. If being rich is your goal in life, then by all means go for it, but it should not be the only thing that drives you in life.
You will be doomed to a very pitiful & painful existence if you think money as the only important thing only goal in life! Time to wake up! There are much better meaning and goals in life, Such as love & friends, Hobbies & pleasure, Self improvement & skills. . . Etc, All that does not nescessarily involve money.
Money is very hallow and very fleeting, Especially true in modern society, Easy come & go, Gets tricked by massive losses in gambling and stock markets. Greedy corporatism is a trap.
Do not forget how our human prehistoric ancestors survived in moneyless societies, Who relied on their own skills and willpower to survive, Much more inspirational than those spoiled demonic rich elites!
In fact nowadays, The rich elites loves to exploit poorer workers by cutting benefits, Stagnant and low wages, Frequent periodic job layoffs, AI replacements, Poorer students get tricked by loaded with massived student debs while getting low paying jobs upon graduation: in All professions, Even in STEM jobs). Greedy corporatism is a trap, All thanks to evil greedy bosses.
Do you want to be like a evil demonic rich fatcat CEOs, Who make enemies out of your common men,
and cares little about others well beings around the world? ! ?
Greedy corporatism is a trap. Those rich and heartless CEOs will be condemned to a hell in their afterlife! And rest assured, Many rich fatcats will be dead earlier due to over-indulgence /overwork / rebellions from the poorer masses! Do not forget occupy wall-street and the massive protests! There will be no justice otherwise!
Although it might seem counter-intuitive to say so, people should seek to be poor. This is because too much negative consequences result when people seek to be rich. Gang violence, theft, murder, and more all happen because people are seeking wealth. If people were content to be poor, we would also have less stress in the world.
