I should be Rich

These days, I have only one idea popping in my mind… “I should be rich”.

Few days back, I realized that I’m not really self-dependent, you know when  I have to borrow some money to complete a business deal, when I have to borrow books to read instead of buying them myself… when I have to find a sponsor for my travels… it’s a shame, I should be rich.

The problem here is that, I don’t really know how to be rich.

At school, we learn just to get good grades and work for a good company but not to own companies.

Colonizer came and said I’ll not give you a fish but teach you how to fish, yet he own the pond, I think you should teach me to own the pond as well, for you to not kick me out of your waters whenever you want.

To spend your life living in fear, never exploring your dreams, is cruel. To work hard for money, thinking that money will buy you things that will make you happy is also cruel. To wake up in the middle of the night terrified about paying bills is a horrible way to live. To live a life dictated by a size of a paycheck is not really a life.

What I want is not money to run my life but money to work for me, I want to make money, a lot of money, this not a revenge emotion but what’s happening to me give me this desire to stretch to a next level, to press forward.

I should be rich… and happy!!

    I think it’s not about being rich, amassing money and accumulating wealth…… It’s about making riches with what you already have–if life throw you lemons make lemonades, instead of trying to convert lemons to grapes in order to get grape juice…….you’re already rich!

  3. you should not focus on getting rich – you should focus on being good at something first, then finding out how you can use your talent to put bread on the table.
