Get Rich Or Die Trying?
February 7, 2009 5:37pm CST
I don't want to be rich, or be a leader of a big business concern. I just want to be happy and do what i feel like doing. Anyway. I wonder what you have to do these days to get rich? Is there anything or any short cuts? http://thedailydisco.blogspot.com

If you watch late night television, you'd think there was something wrong with you for not being rich. On any given night you can see an infomercial on one of a dozen different ways to make $10,000 a month, JUST WORKING PART TIME!!!! But what they don't tell you is that one guy made $10,000 in one month and didn't make another dime after that. OR that the income taxes nearly killed him when it came time to pay. No thanks. I wouldn't mind doubling my yearly income (I made in the neighborhood of $16,000 last year), maybe even tripling it but I don't think I want to be rich.

Hi there Ladybug, Your reply made me think of those people who do win the lottery and then find long lost friends coming out of the woodwork asking them for money. Or worse yet as you say the taxes! I agree with you, I don't think that money is worth it. It seems money sometimes creates more problems than it is worth. And thanks for giving me my little chuckle of the day because you are absolutely right if you happen to be unfortunate enough to be up of 3:00 AM to watch those infomercials, you do think your abnormal if you're unable to become a millionaire overnight. Too bad that I suffer from insomnia sometimes and end up watching them. I just had to add my 2¢ worth, happy Mylotting!

Well, first welcome to Mylot dailydisco! Quite frankly, I don't think there any easy answers or shortcuts to getting through this thing called life. Personally, I don't want to be rich nor do I want to die trying. As long as I have a roof over my head, I'm warm, have enough clothes and food to eat I think I'm all set. More money would be fun to do some extras with but, as long as I have the basics it's friends and family that are more important to me. The old saying, money cannot buy happiness comes to mind. I have known some fairly well off people who were not necessarily any happier than I am. While I would prefer a wee bit more money at the moment I am also quite happy with what I have. A lot of the time we cannot do anything about the things that happen to us in our lives but we can choose how we think about those things that happen to us. I realize that I may have gone a bit off topic when responding to your question but it's because money really is no object to me as long as I have enough food to eat and a roof over my head. Until next time… Happy Mylotting!

Hello Wheel416. It's true. Me neither want to be rich or die trying. But i'm looking for some extras. I'm a musician and a lot of money goes to doing that. And i do it beacuse i love it. But i need some extras. Is it possible the internet could serve some extra money?

While most people are pursuing career development to enhance his status in a narrow fast paced road, some are advocating slow leisure life. I should say both are backed by various reasons. But for a young man, when you are not yet competent enough to earn a living, it is too early to brake your pedal. In modern society, even the basic living needs support of a decent educational background. We have to attain the minimum line before deciding what life goal or life style to seek. Whatever the goal, enjoy the process. sorry, i have not checked your age. just take it for reference. cheer up and have a nice day.
