    • That’s a great reason! It’s weird how something so meaningless like “money” can have such an impact if you don’t have it!

        It’s a financial planet. Everything rather most of things can only be bought by money so how can you say it’s meaningless

      I want to be rich so I can empower others to live abundant lives. Give back and give into my community while creating a legacy. I want to be known for my outstanding work in philanthropy, building communities and have school, hospital wings, libraries and museums dedicating walls to namesake

        I agree with @goldielovesu and to be more specific, I think that money buys time to be able to do those they things they mentioned.

        I not only want to do those things, but fail at them as well.

        There are a lot of great ideas on how to make the world a better place, but not all of them can succeed. I call being rich the ability to buy the freedom to fail. If your idea doesn’t work for whatever reason; circumstances change, you have a chance to learn from that failure and apply it to your next one.
        I specifically want to make sure I have the ability to spend more time influencing my kids to be citizens of their communities; cleaning up the streets around them, teaching others what they have learned, and inspiring others to do the same.
        It all starts with baby-steps and I am taking that literally with my babies. 🙂

    I’m tired of being poor. I’m tired of the excuses I wake up giving myself daily and I’m tired of limiting my potential. I’m a single father and I want to set the proper example for my daughter so that she can be successful someday. Also, get her started on the correct approach by sharing with her the information that Alux provides.

    All of the hurdles I currently face in life are financially related. Right now, I am not making enough money to invest in the opportunities that would put me on the road to wealth attainment. Thus, I have to go to others (angel investors, banks, friends, etc.) to try and convince them that my ideas have merit. Begging and pleading has never been my strong suit. I want to be rich so that I never have to do this again. In short, I want to be rich so that I can do the things I want to do in life, and never have to depend on someone else to write a check for me.

    Hello!
    I want to be rich because i like having my space and freedom. Im 27 but ive been told often that i have expensive taste or critized for wanting certain foods and admiring those who are wealthy.
    To be honest i cant help it! I love what i love and those who are rich are people i would like to learn from. Even if im a college student and single parent i still feel in my gut that my hard work will pay off and ill have this kind of life.
    So to answer your question better: i want to be rich because i want to have the freedom to do what i like without critism or forced to reconsider. I want to know that if i spend money its fine cause i no longer have to worry about whether or not i can afford it. Lastly to take care of my family, i would love to one day put my daughter in a great school and take her traveling with me so she can see what the world has to offer. Also to be able to give my mom the option to finally relax cause shes worked all her life and still working. She needs a break.
    Is that a good answer?

    Well they say money can’t buy you happiness, the strange thing is poverty can’t buy you anything, not happiness, love, shelter, food nor a pet. I want to be rich so that I can leave a permanent mark on this earth, I want to personally contribute in ensuring that kids go to bed/school with a decent healthy meal. Being rich will help me make this world a better place, I want to help those who do not see the hope. Rich people have the best of everything, good relationships, nice homes, good health, nice cars. I want all of that.

  19. To help myself and others. Like the oxygen that drops down in a plane that’s crashing, money can help me survive and then help others to survive and to find parachutes to escape the stupid poverty plane crash! If money represents life then oxygen is the best analogy. I want to be rich so I can help everyone breathe better…live better! Then we can all leave the limited cabin of despair called poverty and enter the limitless construct of the wealthy wild blue yonder. Plus, being rich is fun!

    I grew up at the lower end of middle class. I didn’t have a lot but we never wanted for anything. When my parents split up, they both were on the loosing end financially. I remember that for a few months we didn’t have heat in the winter, and I kept all the lights off, so that I wasn’t using hydro or eating very little so that my younger brother had more food. My parents didn’t teach me anything about money so when I went out on my own I had a huge issue with paying bills at first and my credit suffered a huge hit. After 5 years of struggling, I have finally got myself out of debt and my credit score is on the mend. I wan to wealthy so that my children never have the struggle I did, so that if my parents or friends are ever in a bad situation, I can help them out. I want to be wealthy so that I never have to tell my kids they can’t do something, purely because I don’t have the money to afford it. Lots of people say Money isn’t everything, but you need it to live. Almost everything that you can think of, the better option costs more money. Public vs Private school, high school vs college, McDonald vs Healthy restaurant, apartment vs House, I don’t want lack of money to hold me back, and I will not let it hold back my children either

    In this world, if you’re poor, achieving your goals and dreams in life are insanely hard. But, if you’re rich, you can actually achieve them in a lenient way with hard work and hustling. I wanna be rich, because, I wanna live my life in my own terms. I wanna have my financial freedom. I wanna help the society in any way I can. I wanna leave my personal mark in this world.

    I know that I can be a global benefactor and leave behind a legacy for my son and future descendants once I have the resources. I want the best for myself, my family, and others who believe they are worth it as well. Wealth would enable me to make a bigger impact on my community and world-wide, along with making sure my son does not go have to deal with the unnecessary troubles that I endured because of lazy and apathetic parentage. I am currently in college working toward acceptance into the University of Oklahoma’s dual MD/PhD program and the little town that I live in is grotesquely underfunded and in need of technological upgrades that I would enjoy investing in when I come into a position that allows such philanthropy. I also want to have a political platform that helps provide assurances for the well-being of the common population, and the businesses that supply their demands. There are a lot of outdated laws, philosophies, and social structures that govern the region in which I grew up and I know that having substantial wealth on my side, I could help improve upon the structures that these people live within and also bring about technological evolution that is not only needed, but welcomed by the minds and hearts of my state, my country, and my world. But I will not stop there! Collaborative funding to help any space exploration and planetary colonization plans that may be in motion are a passion I will help see to fruition. While I seek out ways to make myself better as a person, exponentially abundant wealth will enable me to expand upon and produce my best ideas and shared philosophies.

There are many outdated laws, ideas and philosophies that are still promulgated and govern the structure in which the people of this region live and having the financial support to bring about changes in the social structure to increase the quality of life for these people is another reason I am seeking wealth. I would love to collaborate with others in order to affect fundamental and technological advances for my state, my country and my world. But I will not stop there! Collaborative funding for any space exploration and planetary colonization projects are concepts that I will help see to fruition. While I seek out ways to better myself as a person while I am still learning, monetary support will enable me to expand and produce my best ideas and manifest my best philosophies for all of humanity to enjoy.

    I want to have the experience of finally not worrying over bills and money. I am extremely rich in spirit, life, family, and mind and I am ready to feel the bounty of financial wealth along with it. I have spent my life raised by a single mother, abandoned by my father at the age of 6 just like Audrey Hepburn and I myself have raised my kids, been a victim of domestic violence that resulted in my being kidnapped because of trying to leave him. Although many years ago it led me to pursuing my degree in PT, raising my BEAUTIFUL family and seriously acquiring huge levels of emotional, unstoppable strength. I am writing my first book and working on developing workshops and have a huge dream to succeed in helping many people while inspiring them along the way. In terms of being wealthy! It’s MY TIME! I want to feel the freedom and lift of financial struggle and I want to be able to develop my workshops, name and opportunities to get my gifts out into the world. Money would certainly help! I believe It is also my birthright to feel and experience this before I die!

  39. I have multiple health problems (multiple autoimmune conditions). I don’t want to be a burden to my children and grandchildren. Instead, I want to use my gifts and abilities both to provide for myself (including some likely future health complications) and to enjoy life with my children and grandchildren for as long as I am able.

    On the other hand, I have numerous income streams (both earned and passive), the funds are well-invested in diverse assets, AND I’m 3/5 finished with a Ph.D. in research/quantitative psychology for a second career, to keep myself intellectually active. Not awful for a retired schoolteacher and granny of three, hmm?

    I was dealt a less than desirable hand in life. I was dirt poor, uneducated and accepted my lot in life. I have been in construction and back breaking work for the last 25 years. I found a mentor in a coworker who had made it financially. I listened to what he had to say about budgeting money. He said it was not how much you make, but how you treat your money. I had traded so much time for money. I started to shop at second hand clothing stores for my clothes, clip coupons, drive old cars and continue to live like all pauper. I started buying up really bad properties that needed a lot of work in my spare time. For years all of my extra money went towards investing in things that would only generate cash. Properties, mutual funds and an education. Fast forward to today, I just bought a condo in a luxury high rise. I still look low rent to all of my neighbors, but I don’t have a mortgage like they do. I paid cash for my condo. Even though I am doing well, I still pinch pennies, and have all of the old habits of a strong blue collar guy, that will never change. I still feel a little uneasy about this lifestyle change, my family and friends now call my wife and I uppity, but who cares. My wife and I made a conscious decision to change our stars. Being well off is nice, but it’s not a panacea to how family treats you. Going this far, I want more… Much more.

    WHATEVER may be said in praise of poverty, the fact remains that it is not possible to live a really complete or successful life unless one is rich. No man can rise to his greatest possible height in talent or soul development unless he has plenty of money; for to unfold the soul and to develop talent he must have many things to use, and he cannot have these things unless he has money to buy them with.

    A man develops in mind, soul, and body by making use of things, and society is so organized that man must have money in order to become the possessor of things; therefore, the basis of all advancement for man must be the science of getting rich.
