It’s so depressing watching the typical man, toiling away at their work, doing what they don’t like, so that they can carry on living, to continue doing what they don’t like! At best, we find some self consoling, politically correct souls who think that their jobs are in fact alright and they don’t mind clocking in those hours. However, it only takes a simple test to tear down that self delusional facade – Would you still continue working at that job if you have a million bucks sitting in your bank?
Or would you rather go do something that you really love? Honestly.
If I’m not careful, I can easily find myself being sucked into that rat race. It is so instinctive, so natural. We all need to work. We need money. We need to survive. We all want to be rich. Which leads me to the question…
Do we have a good reason to be rich?
I’m not going to do the cliché thing of asking you what would you do if you had a million dollars today, because generally people develop an extra sense of altruism when picturing themselves with an improbably large sum of money. However, if we were to be given an extra month’s worth of bonus, would charity still be the first thought on our mind, or would that summer vacation or Louis Vuitton bag look more compelling instead?
I bet altruism just flew right out of the window.
Truth be told, we all want money just like how we want our next breath. Yet when we get it, we haven’t got the slightest idea of what we really want to do with it.
Perhaps only the purposeful should be truly rich. Or could it already be, that only the purposeful are truly rich?
