    I have a feeling most people will pick "Young and poor" If you did, please ask yourself, "Why do I spend all my precious time kicking myself in the ass to make money?"

    This moment in time is the youngest you'll ever be in your life.

    Young and poor. I miss my youth a lot more than I would miss my wealth. I also have time to turn things around and still become wealthy.

    Neither I'm content where I am, what I did or not.

    I always thought people asking themself those hypothetical questions have no confidence, are upset and weak.
    You got to enjoy what you reached and what not. That's where you take energy from to keep going.

    Wasting time on what could have I reached or how great would it be if I were 18 and have dozillion trillions of dollars won't get you anywhere.

    Because if you don't, you will end up being old and poor.

    I'd like to not worry or think about these kinds of things.

    Buddhists have this term "papanca" which means mental proliferation - the multiplication of thoughts. It can be like fast-growing weeds overtaking your mind, turning it into a jungle of "what if" and "would or should I rather...?" ideas and fantasies.

    I'd like people to be at peace whatever their situation. Easy to say but hard to do.

    Precisely.

    A year or so ago I met a 74 yo woman who told me that she is in better health now than she was in her youth, except that she has some form of cancer. She wasn't fazed by this. Her 102 yo father still walks around and is energetic. He hasn't even been to a doctor in over 60 years.

    I'd imagine that the OP is referring to those who are on their deathbed but have a lot of munies. Otherwise, being old is relative.
