The richer you are, the more disciplined you need to be.

trinity said it best: "it takes a lot of discipline to be rich, so it kind of leaves the fun out of the situation"

so fucking true.

when you're poor, you can afford to dick around, because you're limited on your means of acquiring resources.

when you're rich, you have to be remain disciplined so you don't sqaunder your fortune on gluttony and stupid crap.

I really think self-discipline makes or breaks you.

it basically means...

"i'm going to get what I want, because the fruits of my labor will mean more to me... and if i'm going to have to give up a few things, that's ok."

there is no such thing as a wealthy undisciplined person, because they won't remain wealthy for very long.

which is why everyone who wins the lottery always squander their wealth and gain more debt than when they acquired their fortunes.

they got the money part right, but they lacked the natural cultivation of discipline to maintain their fortunes and capital.

I secretely oppose millionaires, but it would be dangerous if you offered me the position.
Don't believe anything I say... I lie all the time.

Stupid does not equal "not fun"... Stupid partially equals making connections between two or more things that have no connections at all.

But if what you mean is that "being rich" is not fun because you work at it, then your mind isn't very expansive. It's actually quite limited within "the box".

Many people have fun making money, because they do what they enjoy. You wouldn't know them personally...but there are many millionaires and billionaires who enjoy the the game of "monopoly" in real life.

And durring their monthly vacations, they enjoy travel, adventure, the best in automobiles, foreign women, the foods/cuisines, etc...

While they are enjoying that type of stuff, you enjoy smoking a joint, playing video games and being a useless eater.

hmmm...

Says the guy who previously stated he doesn't need to work anymore, and pays people to work for him.

Schizo for sure.
