For me to help out others in need, may sounds corny to some, but that's what really all I can think of.

It's probably what we think first until we are actually there, now as to how you'll manage to be rich is the question to attain the goal of helping the poor. It's actually easy to say that we want to help the poor but in reality there are many obstacles that will hinder this generous ambition. There is the number one: personal greed, the want to have more and the desire to gain without losing which is probably in line with the lack of contentment to any achievement or possession. then there's also the number two: balancing factor, to be rich is attainable but staying rich would be a problem. To help the poor will require so much sacrifice and if you don't manage your wealth wisely you'll end up needing help, yourself. I think that aside from material gain, most people want to be rich because the comfort of living wealthy is one of the luxuries it provides, there is also fame, and power with it. For me, being rich is a responsibility, it requires a whole lot of it. So, since I'm pretty much lazy, I'll just have to be contented being un-rich. Just kidding...Well, if I was so rich; meaning rich as in filthy rich that I use bill to wipe my drool off, I'll help the poor that will be sure.

well first and foremost is to grant my nieces, nephews and granddaughters/son future. as they say charity starts at home so aside from material things family is the main reason that i want to be rich. after family comes the community, the church and less fortunate people. however it is so difficult to say since when we have it in our hands we want more. sometimes greed will overpower us. but we can share it to other people if we really have the determination and love to fellow humans.

I would help other people that need help,and also it would be great that I would not have to worry about paying my bills.If I already have money then there is no worry.Since I know how it is to be poor I definately would help out another poor person.
