last night while i was working i was chatting with someone a few years older than me who has no money now but had money in the past enough to be rich for a while . now he is in vegas about to be homeless yada yada .. lots of those stories here .
the major bias i have built up over the last year is to limit the number of poor people who get close to me ..or people who have given up and pretty much expect to be poor the rest of their lives .. don't take care of themselves and always have i list of things they really should do but never do. ..and will suck resourse from family friends and government..they will come into your place and grab a drink something to eat .. little things ..
poor people who tell you they are poor and tell you why they are poor will always be poor ..
then there are people who are broke no matter how much money they make they just never have cash on hand .. i am in this stage i have enough to put a roof over my head and buy food and beer ..and pay for internet .. but listening to grant cardone he purposly keeps himself broke despite making what he make .. he gets a huge chunk of money it goes in the bank untill he can invest it in something . so he is broke but wealthy .
rich is up to you .. my definition of wealthy is you have assets that prodce income to support the lifestyle you want ..
now back to the post title the question. would you rather be rich or happy .. i personally argued with him .. that it was not a valid question . if you believe it is an or question.. you have deep seated biases ..it's like beliving there is a choice.. to i do good work that helps people or do i get rich ..
being rich or happy ..if you ask or answer it ..you need to work on your beliefs ..
they are not exclusive ask how can you be happy and get rich .. and how can you do work that really helps people and make good chunks of money
