After Becoming Rich, What Next? by LekinsRibirth(m): 11:33pm On Feb 03
We all clamour to get the paper. Some even work two jobs and forgo quality time with their loved ones. Not to mention that a few even do illegal an unethical things just to be rich.

So I was wondering, after getting wealth, what next?

Why not get rich first. Then you can answer it yourself

Then relax, sit back and enjoy life, also find a hobby, and engage yourself in that hobby to keep busy.

Good question.

Vanity is next. Look how riches have set Nigeria back by 60 years.

Biko,I don't know about doing illegal stuff to make.money o.

But if you start early in life to plan your Life, don't be distracted by any bf/gF nonsence. Marry early if marriage interests you or have your child/ren early if you just want one, be diligent in your work , grow and invest on your self growth, save and work smart in your 20's to 40's, BELIEVE me in your 50's you'd be balling. . .

Lots of lovely beaches in this world to visit, great islands to explore, countries to visit and have fun, things to do just for the fun of it and great people to meet.

Very well said.
But if all you stand to gain from the wealth you've attained is to recline to a life of traveling and exploring beautiful places, doesn't that makes one's life empty?

No I would not marry a broke man. He has to have a degree and stable career just like myself. It is not about having lots of money, get it?
Re: After Becoming Rich, What Next? by Ranchhoddas: 5:59pm On Feb 04
There is no goal. The experience is all it is. Even if there is a higher purpose I don't believe it is possible to know it on this plane.
Money is great and I intend to amass a lot of it. But it is not the be all and end all as those who have plenty of it soon discover. But it enriches the human experience. It makes it the journey easier and sweeter if you like.

So in essence you're saying mankind's purpose is to amass wealth?

How does one having a degree play out in you choosing of a partner? To what end exactly?

Well, I presume it all boils down to preference.

I see that this is one of those bait threads created out of boredom, joblessness or both just for the sole purpose of never ending debates by NLD's Einstein's. I jump and pass .

I have answered your question and living my best life.

Is your Life empty ?, your problem, mine is not. kiss

Thank you and have a good life.

help the poor people around you, build companies and create jobs. there are many things to be done.
Create a good reputation for yourself and you will remain in people's memory even after your demise. good name is better than wealth!!

One advantage of being rich is that it gives you the opportunity to encounter problems that money cannot solve.

A poor man thinks all his problems is money but when he becomes wealthy he understands that money is a mirage.

The reason for have financial resources is to be comfortable and have the means to pursue purpose.
Being rich for the sake of being rich leaves a lot of emptiness. That is why some at the peak of their careers and profession fall into depression, go into drugs and even commit suicide. It's because there is a void in there that the fame and fortune cannot fill.

Having money though good is the lowest form of prosperity. Good health is higher, good family/relationship is higher and so on. So when anyone pursues money and leave those things they come back to haunt him/her.

The trick is to have a ballanced perspective. You need money to fulfil purpose and help people. But when you chase money and leave other important things, you can turn out worse off.

What use is a good name to a dead person?
Is it gonna give you status in the after life?

Brother...

I would say after wealth, engage in activities that outlive you. Be involved in humanity.

Have you ever wondered, why bill gate is eradicating polio from Africa? There come an innate desire to affect the lives of generation unborn or after you.

When your time is up. It's not so much about how much money you made in this world but how many lives have been better because you came.
