Who wants to be a Millionaire?

Philippines
September 16, 2008 4:45am CST
Just wonderin'...Does everyone wants, longs, dreams and wishes (in one way or another) to become millionaires? Or are there people who just want to live a simple life? I'm a dreamer and if only money isn't a factor, I would travel around the world, country to country, city to city and town to town (I guess that's exaggerating it a little..LOL). If only money isn't a factor. That is why, I made it my goal that someday I'll be a multi-millionaire. Then I can do what I want. Then I can help my family and friends and even my country. haha. Then I can make a difference and live my life to the fullest. Have you ever wished to become a millionaire even for once in your life? Why and why not?;D Disclaimer: I'm not saying that money is the answer to everything because it's not. Rather money is a tool so we can have what we want and we can have answers to most of life's problems.

Who don't want to be Millionaire? I think everyone want to be...but it totally depends on your Luck factor. If you be rich by some other means or by illegal ways then you can not stay for long time millionaire. Your graph will go sudden down anytime. but it you be Millionaire by hard work and luck factor gives you helping hand then you can stya long life rich person. But i will strongle say ...I WANT TO BE MILLIONAIRE...HAHA.

me me me me!!!hehehe same with you, if i have a lot of money, i would tour the world, go on a cruise, buy my wants, give some to my friends who are having a hard time, buy my mom expensive jewelries and nice clothes. but my dad a yacht and a really nice car..hahaha guess, all of us are dreaming of the same thing. life could have been easier if we have a lot of it. however, this doesn't mean that i am not regretful of my life right now. i am very happy with the life that i am living no matter how it can be so hard sometimes.

There is no harm in dreaming, I also do so and wish to visit diffeent places and would like to look various monuments and would love to shop at prominent shopping places in the world. Would like to buy a luxury car and a big aircaraft. Would like to go deep into the sea, what lies beneath it. But I know these are only dreams and I have to live within my means.

There's really no limit on what money can buy. I'm still a long way from my goals. And you are right, for now we better live withing our means.

I would like to be a millionaire. Since childhood I had been dreaming about having a big bungalow near the riverside with lots of greenery . I would like to travel to different places. Scotland is one of the place I would like to travel. I think it is always great to have money needed to fulfill all the dreams a person has.

Money would really solve a lot our concerns our life. The hard part is how do we become millionaires. It's a long long journey towards it.

was, i dream i am gonna be a millionaire someday, everything is easy just bought...bought and bought...but my grandmother told me that's not the real and good life to be, she told me happiness and love that's called millionaire, be millionaire not just look from how much we have the money, but look from inside your heart to feel the love and happiness.

Happiness really doesn't depend on how much money you have in your pocket. All I'm saying is that money can solve most of life's problems. It very important that no matter how rich we are we still we remember where we came from. ;D

Actually, I have a friend who doesn't a lot of money because he says that too much of it will just complicate life. I don't agree with him though. I think having a lot of money would just save a lot of life's complications. I hope we both become millionaires! cheers! ;D

I always want to have a lot of money but I didn't exactly wish to be a millionaire. However, with the cost of living today, I guess that I would want to be a millionaire to be able to afford all the things I would like to have. Every week when I buy a lottery ticket and before the draw takes place, I dream of how I would spend the money. It's a lovely feeling but unfortunately it only lasts until the winning numbers are drawn. Then I have to wait and do the same thing the next week. Oh well, maybe some day...

i dont want to be a millionaire... i just want to earn sufficient money through a job that would help support a family... but not a millionaire... money is too much of a hassle... i think excess of money brings more worries than joy. too many calculations, worries of losing it by theft or whatever, and moreover it may be life threatening (atleast in my country lol). i want to lead a simple life and die peacefully in the end.

You have a point. When you are too rich you need to hire a body guard because your life will always be threatened. I guess it's just a matter of being extra careful. Cheers for a happy and simple life! ;D

Hi ya divinegwapa I think that really everyone wants to be a millionaire even the people that want to live a simple life then they would be able to give it to someone who would really want it and that would surely make them happy. I would have lots of people I would like to help out including myslef of course.

If I remember it right I read somewhere that Bill Gates gave away $9B. Isn't that amazing? That's one of the things I want to do when I become a millionaire, give and help others. ;D

The thought of being a millionaire has crossed my mind. I would be, however, happy to be financially debt free and secure. If I get sick and have to be out of work for a bit, I don't want to worry about my mortgage or any other bills that will continue to become due on a monthly basis. If I were to become a millionaire, I would definitely help my family and friends. I'd also donate to All Children Hospital, The Ronald McDonald House and Make A Wish Foundation. A fund to help those parents with terminal children so they can be there for their children would also be at the top of my list. * Nothing wrong with dreaming as long as you keep working at the same time*

Yes, that's one thing too. We really should have reserve money in case of sicknesses. The very reason why I want to a millionaire is because I want my mom to stop working. She's been working so hard for the family and I want to return the favor. I want her to just rest and travel and enjoy and stop thinking about how to get food in the table. ;D

You will be fine. She only wants to to have every opportunity to succeed and accomplish your dreams and those of any other children if she has any. I doubt if she's worried about you supporting her. If you do well, her goal has been accomplished. I do however understand your desire to make sure she can one day not work as hard. You seem to be a sweetheart daughter. I've been blessed with the same.
