    Hi guys.

    I read a few threads and comments here recently that made me want to write this post.
    It will also motivate you to keep pushing you so why not, I believe in helping others or like Jim Rohn says "if you have a good idea you should share it, if its with 1 person or a thousand"...

    Anyway, for those of you who "make enough money" and "money doesnt motivate them" anymore, because they had some success...quit being selfish guys. period.

    IMO if you really want to feel satisfied, and feel like youre doing something thats worth it, you need to become richer, make more money, so you can give more, so you can build another school, so you can donate to your church/musk/synagogue, so you can help your community and help others, so you can feed another child.

    Thats what drives me to work my a** off.

    If you think about it, RICH PEOPLE change the world. Not poor people. Thats the cold hard truth.

    Mother Theresa did a lot and helped so many ppl. But what if she was rich? Dont you think she could help more? maybe start a "mother theresa franchise" in every city in the world? wouldnt she be helping more people if she had more money? im sure she would.

    POOR PEOPLE ONLY FOCUS ON THEMSELVES.
    "where am I going to get money for rent? " "how do I pay my bills?"

    WHILE RICH PEOPLE CAN ALLOW THEMSELVES TO HELP OTHERS BECAUSE THEY'R "ALL SET" WITH THEIR FINANCES...

    Look, I have nothing against those of you who are poor or started at humble beginnings. I just think that for the sake of yourself, your family, and the entire society, you NEED TO BECOME RICH. Work harder, Work smarter, Become better.

    Decide to become rich folks....

    Hope that gave you a motivation boost.
    Peace out.

    'Pursuit of Happiness', poor people helped out other people as well, and not entirely being 'selfish'.

    Gandhi wasnt rich.

    Wasn't she rich? From my research, she has made a lot of money through numerous so called charity campaigns. She also had opened hospitals where she treated patients in the worst conditions possible, giving them aspirin for pain, because she said that people should feel the pain through which Jesus went or something like that, and when it came about her being sick, she demanded to be treated in high quality conditions (the definition of being an hypocrate)

    But perhaps the source from where I read wasn't correct. So apologize for my ignorance.

    Anyway, this thing is BS. For the world to be changed in good, the system needs to be changed. And that's impossible. I also believe there's too many people for the current resources, so someone has to suffer.

    Giving a couple milions of dollars to charity, when you're a billionaire seems like cheap change to me, no offence.

    @zionbar You actually make sense, it's a bit "bad" from one's aspect, but it really makes lots of sense.
    I keep raising my monthly income to be able to help even more people and the feeling you get by it is superb (of course I do it for my own @ss too, I'm not a saint).

    Nice post to speak the truth

    You don't need to justify anything to yourself, if I feel like I deserve to drive a 10M $ lamborghini then thats my fucking business.
    You dont owe anything to anyone except for maybe the people close to you but the rest?
    Like if someone convinces themselves that slaving for 50 years 40 hours a week is the 'right and moral thing to do' then thats their fucking problem.

    For me, the right and moral thing to do is to have anything I desire and if someone is against that than there is not a whole I can do to remedy that.

    I feel like this post is a bit wrong, not everyone has aspirations of being wealthy.

    I've lived with farmers in south america that don't have any money but smile and have more fun than any millionaire I know, and I know quite a few. Being "rich" isn't about making money it's about living well, having friends and being happy. Money doesn't buy happiness...

    Being poor is selfish?

    I could have sworn hoarding money was selfish but apparently I don't live in your version of reality.

    Your comment is complete BS. Saying " a few millions dollars" dont make a change... thats complete bs bro
    Bill gates' fund helps millions of hungry kids in Africa giving them a better life... so saying his "few millions" dont chage ppls lives is completely ignorant.

    Rich does not equal wealthy. You need to factor in variables such as happiness, stress level and time. Being rich in no way automatically brings forth happiness. While it is your opinion, it shows simple mindedness, immaturity and ignorance.

    This is a classic unformulated opinion. You yourself have likely not experienced both sides of the coin.

    I love it when people say "money wont make you happy".

    Believe me being poor wont make you happy either bro.

    Stop trying to make sense of not having money. It doesnt make sense.

    Next time you try to get a car loan tell the bank " cmon guys I dont have a good credit or any money, but hi money doesnt make u happy right" tell me how that worked out for you.

    We live on an economical planet. HAVING MONEY IS CRITICAL.
    Sorry to break it out to you :)

    Watched him on youtube once. The man is brilliant...

    People don't like to hear the truth... I was waiting to see the replies lol

    "but rich people are not happy"
    "but but but"

    Cmon deep inside you, You know YOUD RATHER BE RICH.
    Cut the crap guys ;)

    If I could give you a choice - be rich or be poor, which one would you choose?

    Above you responded to @vilcakurt 's message regarding penniless farmers in South America with a poorly-worded one-line anecdote about obtaining a car loan. An ignorant comparison.

    Even further above you refer to @alwaysinvisible, who dozens of times has explained that she is a woman, as a "bro". Again, very much ignorant and presumptive.

    I formulated my own opinion based on your chicken-shit text. Specifically this part struck me as moronic:

    I know many rich people. I know many poor people. There are more ways to assist others than with money. I can say without any doubt that those who donate a few hours of their time do more good for humanity than those who throw $100 at a charity.

    If you think most rich people are "all set" with their finances, I suggest you research the concept of liquidity.

    Again, simple minded, ignorant, and immature. Your broken-English unchecked responded are only fueling this clear troll-fest. Enjoy losing the respect of many.
