I have no desire to be rich. Never did, never will. I had a construction business and was usually cheaper than most other contractors and tried to do a very good job, one where I would not be ashamed to say I did it in twenty years. Most of my customers were not rich, common working people. I did do some work for a few people who were rich around here, retired business owners. But they were the same way I was, they took a lot of time to build up their wealth, they tried to give people affordable services and products. That is not how it is today anymore, the business owners prided themselves on providing jobs in the community and a decent service. I guess I am old school because I think that is important.
Money does not have to make you entitled or spoil a person. I know some people who have gained wealth and they are not that way. People who work hard for their money are often less apt to get entitled than those who make money doing easy work.

You can’t hate wealth and wealthy people and then expect to become wealthy. Also, even if you don’t care about being wealthy you could care about how much being wealthy could help you with causes that are important to you.
Stop with the limiting thinking and empower yourself to be successful.
Curiously, do you think it is sustainable to have everyone on the planet being successful in the finance department?
