Not at all.
The common saying “money does not make you blissful” often sounds implausible and is, of course, all too often a mere phrase in wealthy societies such as the German one, which is supposed to conceal the fact that one is supposedly “own way”, which one witty manner than specifically and idiosyncratic glorify, has walked on the pavement with money.It is very easy to say that money is not important to you if you are socially fully secure, that Dad and Mum have usually amassed a certain inheritance — even if it is just a small apartment — and that you are a German or a German. Europeans, on top of that, belong to the global upper class (let’s face it: we all are).
Already at school I saw through this fun: Our year could be roughly divided into two groups, namely those whose parents were homeowners (mostly lived in the rural environment) and the rest who lived in rented apartments in the city and the suburbs, a bunch of German workers’ and migrant children.What struck me as a quick sight was that the saying was held up primarily by children in the former group, while the poorer children were much more motivated and better at school, because at some point they also wanted to get involved, after the holiday in the Seychelles. Raising her eyebrows and saying, “Money doesn’t make you happy,” knowing that the way to it is money, money and even more money.
Money makes you very happy.
It is a soothing misconception of well-being that people in the West are told that money does not make people happy.Money is the very best predictor of happiness, and absolutely every rich man knows this, even if unhappy for other reasons. Happiness is more related to money than the average person here is aware. Not only are the big worries, such as financial fears for the future, and the like simply disappearing, but life is taking a completely different course. Happiness is not that you can simply afford more, but that prices simply disappear. Looking for flights? Take cheap trains? Go through savings rates? Standing in line at the supermarket? Select restaurants? Tram? Planning a holiday? None of this is any more. I know this because I could (almost) cost this lifestyle a little while when I was working in a developing country. I was able to live the way I wanted: to eat where I just wanted to, just take a taxi and drive to another city and afford a very apartment in the very best location of the city center, even for local conditions. But I haven’t mentioned the best of the money at all:
Psychologically, two things motivate people most: food (in the broadest sense) and sex.Both correlate very strongly with money. If you have money, you have more women. Significantly more women and significantly prettier, more status-rich women, no matter how good you look and how charming and successful you are anyway. This is not a cliché, it is really true. Money attracts women like the light the moths – all kinds of women.The funny thing about the whole thing is that it is not even necessarily the money itself that attracts it, but the charisma that gives money consciously or unconsciously, yet always involuntarily: the radiance of power and security. In fact, housing changes people much more than they realize. When a rich man enters the restaurant, you notice it.
But money has much more significant, lasting benefits:
It gives you access to circles where politicians, diplomats, high-ranking scientists, entrepreneurs and the like operate, and at the same time gives you the confidence to make these contacts confidently.You then get better jobs, you can constantly expand your network and — this is damn important — you can find much, much easier financial resources if you want to start a business or project, for example. That’s why most of the super-rich (incl. of the supposed “self-made billionaires”) privileged circles. The Ottonormal citizen can hardly imagine these categories; if he could, the country would have been headlong long ago. Also, rich girls from influential circles suddenly no longer seem so unapproachable, and if you approach yourself skillfully, you can grab one. Or another, no matter. If men always complain that the choice of partner is always up to women and that we have to rip our ass open to get a woman, while women can easily choose from the many candidates, then this is generally true, but only for Normal mortals. Rich men can choose the same way. They don’t get everyone, but almost.
So why am I writing that money is n.e. i don’t care?
Because “happiness” means nothing to me.What I described above is primarily material satisfaction or has to do with it. However, I am the sheer opposite of a materialist; that was the case as a teenager. Not that I despise happiness, but rather I never think about it, nor do I understand why almost everyone always wants to be “happy” and have happiness as a goal in life, when life is just as short for a mere moment and we hardly have time to grasp it. I’d much rather be interesting than happy. I have always wanted to do something meaningful, meaningful in life, to deal with the search for truth and meaning, to really pursue things and to do something that has a “real” value, to put it in exaggerated terms, beyond more money. more sex more material more growth. Overcoming the primitive animal in man. Apart from all the “philosophical” stuff, it’s just a fact that material things that excite 99% of other people (mobile phones, gadgets, cars, yachts, clothes, tVs, luxury food, luxury trips, etc.) just don’t stimulate me. Even if that sounds ridiculous, I’m really someone who doesn’t know what to do with money because simple things and places, interesting people you don’t notice, inspire me to think, and I can’t buy that with money.
