Money to some people is everything. You have to have a nice house or nice clothes and a brand new Lexus to be happy. To me being wealthy is alot better than being rich. In order to be wealthy, to have a successful career you have got to have a job. In order to make something of yourself you have to work hard. My grandfather tells me all the time, to start at the bottom to get to the top. That means you got to start off by working hard days and long nights. So if whenever you get older you can retire and live life right. If you choose to not worrk hard, go to work when ever you want and do whatever then you are looking at poverty. Wouldn't you like to drive the car you want, live where ever you want and have fun right? For people in poverty, because of their income they can't live where ever they want. Money can make your life easier rather than difficult. All it takes is just hard work and some self determination. Don't be lazy this is the one life kind of deal. So that's why I am going to do everything I can become wealthy no matter what it takes. Just because people tell you that can't accomplish something doesn't mean you can't. It's up to you if you really want to do it.
