Don't spend money on worthless things. Games or going out to eat. Just buy essentials and save the rest. Its okay to occasionally spend things on stuff you like; but, for most people its difficult to spend in moderation.

Also its practically impossible for the common man to get "rich." You'll only become "rich" in comparison to another average person such as yourself. Truly rich people are unreachable unless you work your ass off, have a good idea to get money and luck.
Warning about get rich quick schemes; quite a few people that work their butts off trying to become rich hardly ever succeed in becoming rich. It's hard to become truly rich; it'll spare you a lot of pain and frustration to just quit that dream. It's better to just aim for a career that pays well like a lawyer or engineer or doctor or something (like I did).
Another thing you can do is have multiple careers if your mind and your body can handle it that is. Well I'm going to shut up now since I got to go.

I don't want to rich, because I feel rich people have a responsibility to spend their money wisely (e.g. helping others using it), I don't want that kind of responsibility.

well you and CyberOblivion has a point... biggrin biggrin
it is true that if you get richer others will be poorer...yeah thats a bad thing because you end up having to save them and then it will be a bit troublesome...maybe confused

laugh

Sure, it'd be nice to be rich, but you know, I don't see it happening any time soon XD The type of job I might end up getting based on what I'm good at in the future doesn't seem to pay up to being "rich" laugh

So i'd say luck. Lottery here I come laugh

I think it is good to earn money by working hard, to save so that you can have a decent living, take care of your family, donate to the needy, have a bit of fun, and also have some for emergencies... But, to get rich for the sake of getting rich, to lavish delicacies upon oneself, to love money and to do anything for it, is foolish, and many evils and travesties in the world are caused by this. So for that, and other reasons too, I don't want to have too much money... I don't think I could stand to own too much when there are so many poor people everywhere. So if I ever end up getting too rich (by which, I mean having much more than I need), I will give away the excess to people who need it more.

I don't want to be rich.

Behind every rich man are hundreds of men who have suffered from his profit.

Wealth is never distributed equally. Is this right? Of course not, but that is how the world works. It would be impossible to change this unless someone takes over the world and then creates a system to solve the problem.

Flawed logic. Behind every person who has access to internet there is someone else who doesn't have access to food. You are probably "rich" enough from a truly poor persons perspective. There's millions of starving people in the world.

I don't see anything wrong with getting rich, in any way. If you work hard and earn money and eventually get rich, well, you have it well deserved, and it's up to you how you use your money. If it's by luck or by some other mean, well, there isn't much to say either.

Personally I don't aim for it, but if it were to happen, well, it's up to me how I will use my money ôÖ.

Well yeah but if you are poor you can't help them that much.

The more you are rich the better you live and can help other people.
I hate when i give money to an homeless person, thinking that i shouldn't do it so often because i can't even live decently with my economy.
I would like to being able to give them more, but i can't because i'm poor, I would like to buy something for myself more than 1 our 2 time a years and I would like to not have to eat cheap food because i can't affrod better.

So yeah i would whant to be rich!
