    it does indeed suck to be poor. i wouldnt have to be fantastically rich, but i could do very well with being wealthy, just from a 'peace of mind' point of view - with less worries in the financial area i can concentrate on worrying about other aspects of my life.

    yeah, i agree with wobbly, been too rich you'll become prisoner to other conditions. The key is to be "just nice" rich.

    and the list goes on.

    One of my friend told me not long ago "If only I earn $3000/mth, I sure buy a car and can support easily!", but how many of you earning $3k /mth and still feel having a car is a burden?

    By the way how rich is rich? Different people different expectation $$$

    For me a million is not enough, because if I really have a million I will wish to have more
    depends on your commitment...

    $3k a month, minus CPF is $2.4K.

    After say giving $$ to parents, is $1.9k or so.

    After a car?? $1k gone..which is $900 left.....so it all depends....got flat, wife, kid, not enough..

    Default Financial Independence / Financial Freedom

    Thats why striving for financial freedom is a better goal.

    If you are financially independent, working becomes an option rather than a duty.

    Who doesn't? That would explain the queue outside Toto outlets every CNY.

    Dream of getting rich is ok. Obsession over getting rich is a nono.

    买"多多",赢多多.

    Unfortunately, hardcore moronic punters are so addicted that they failed to see the odds stacked against them.

    Once a blue moon, play small, I guess its ok.
    Following that logic of 'buy more, win more' is a cocktail of a downward spiral worse den the Buy-Buy-Buy Virus.

    I want to reach that point in life when I go to, say a CD shop, see some limited-release CD-set going for $49.90, I don't need to think and think and think and think and think and think and think and think and think and think and think


    and in the end, never buy.

    Then later, think and think and think and think and think summore. And when I decided to buy, no stock, liao.

    I have no dreams of buying big-big things like Ferrari and condo. I just want to be able to afford ALL the small things in life.

    I don't even want to be able to afford all the small things in life.

    All I want is a couple of millions that I can donate them to charities.

    People behave differently and usually this behaviour is according
    to the environment they are brought up with. You notice some
    people are born rich and don't even have to work for the rest of
    their lives.

    Unfortunately God also wants some people to be born
    poor. It is difficult to understand this but once you know the
    reason for living you would go out to lend a hand to others whether
    you are rich or poor.

    The zen of living is not to destroy or deceive in order to get rich but
    to give and share whatever you have to those who are in need.
    If only the rich people can act accordingly to help the poor, the
    world will have more peace and harmony.

    It is the drive of selfish
    desire to be rich and powerful that caused people to fall into all
    sorts of crime and destruction. You will sense the richness of
    your life whenever you have done others a good deed without
    asking for return of the favour.

    Finding contentment in the higherawareness of oneself

    "When the sun rises, I go to work. When the sun goes down,
    I take my rest. I dig the well from which I drink. I farm the soil
    which yields my food. I share creation. Kings can do no more."

    -- Chinese proverb

    Do you sense the peace and contentment that can come from an appreciation of one’s place in the cosmos?

    How do we get there with the complexities and pressures of our
    current lifestyles? Perhaps it’s a matter of becoming aware of what
    we truly have as opposed to what our egos believe we need. If we
    look closely, we may find that our ego ‘needs’ are just desires.

    -------------------------------------------------
    If only teachers of all nations can deliver this message:

    When you find yourself longing for something, stop and ask,
    "What is missing from my life? Is it a need? What are the
    essential qualities of what I seek? How can I experience that now?"

    "If we have not quiet in our minds, outward comfort will do no
    more for us than a golden slipper on a gouty foot."

    - John Bunyan
