I know three families personally of whom I know that they are millionaires. I met them through my previous job.
All three are living in houses you and I will never be able to purchase.
All of them do have "the normal stuff" in their fridges. There are no Picassos on their walls, usually they chose the decoration for themselves, I
would guess - as they are lacking in style, in my opinion. One, for example, built a large wine-barrel to sit in (its lying on its side) into his
living room, I guess it should give the place some charme. In fact it looks like it was imported from the 80's.. The ugly part of the 80's. Well, its
What do you want to know? They are NOT more happy than me or you (if you are in a normal mood). Usually they have to travel far and work far longer
than me in the evening. Their kids are usually normal, of course with home cinemas and so on - but those things look to me a little deserted and
lonely, some beamer and a playstation together with some nice seatings. Well, I can live without that, for sure.
Their cars are of course something nice. Bugatti Veyron, some Mercedes racing car for a lot more than I paid for my house (expensive stuff in
Germany..). Nevertheless, those cars will be driven for about 1000-2000km per year, the rest of the time they are using stuff like Audi (A6, nothing
luxurious) or VW or something.
The one family built their 800m²-house 5 years ago, the wife told me that she was still exploring new rooms with stuff in boxes still unpacked.. Too
large, she said. Without the help of at least 1 maid she would be devastated, really.
I am not jealous. I live a comfortable live, nice enough for my family.
