The grass is always greener on the other side
– You will always want to acquire more
My married friend who is married to the millionaire told me another interesting fact from the life of rich people.
In my post about being married to a millionaire I’ve already covered how the business men always are on a constant chase of acquiring more wealth. If we take a look at their women, it’s a slight difference – yet exactly the same story.
Women who end up marrying a millionaire don’t satisfy just there.
For now this is your dream and you probably think that once you end up married to him “then everything will become perfect”.
But, the chances are, it won’t!
Because you will be wanting more once you’ve checked off your first goal from the list.
You will want more and more. You might start craving a bigger house, a more luxurious car, 100 pairs of louboutins instead of 50, and so on. This is the way life works for the average person who doesn’t work on himself and start living in the moment by appreciating what is right now.
Welcome to the Rich Mans Game
My friend was telling me how the rich wives she spends time with always compete with each other by measuring their wealth. Apparently this is extremely common and the rich people like to play the silent game of “who has the most money”.
If A has got a brand new Lambo then B needs to get the same but in a special limited edition version. Or if A has got a yacht of 40 meters then B has to get the 80 meters one. You get my point.
Money and status goes hand in hand
The trigger in the rich mans game, is the chase for status. It’s all about raising your status, be above everyone else. The game is like a hierarchy ladder – who climbs the highest. To reach a high status you need a lot of money. You end up buying your status in order to impress others.
This is such a bizarre reality in a way as…
…It’s all just a mind game.
For that reason I must say I’m not very interested in becoming a trophy wife who is married rich,
showers herself in luxury, spends ridiculous amounts on items that becomes disposable and not appreciated. The worst is I would never want to become BLIND for life and with the way I see it. Money makes people blind.
And sometimes a little bit twisted.
I can sincerely say, I’d wish to accumulate my own wealth one day. I wouldn’t mind making millions or why not billions of money. But you know what, I would not want to spend my money in the most ridiculous ways, living a luxury destructive life as I’d like to call it.
Instead I would personally invest the money needed in mine and my family’s comfort and the maintenance of it. Stupid excess outside that is not interesting for me.
Then with the money I have left, I would invest it in various projects of charity I would set up that could make my desired difference in the world. I have already so many ideas of various ways I wish to develop that would benefit others.
It’s truly a gift to become rich,
because once you have a large amount of money on your hands – you have actually for the first time SUCH BIG POWER TO MAKE A POSITIVE CHANGE IN THE WORLD.
But it’s only a gift if you let go of your ego. If you don’t, then being rich can become a disadvantage.
I find the money to gain power to make a difference – to be extremely inspiring and a goal to aim for. A goal that matters more to me than acquiring a collection of Hermes Birkin bags in every color. Seriously, think about it. I will make reality of this one day. And I will keep you guys posted a long the way. 😉
