Why do you want to be rich?

Sometimes, teaching people how to get rich gets me a bad rap. “You just want to make money,” I’ve been told. Or “money isn’t everything.” These gems, while not particularly eloquent, do have a point. Actually, I’d prefer that these people ask me why I teach people to be rich. It’s important to ask yourself, too: Why do you want to be rich?

Take a second and think about it.

A really dorky picture of a clock

Do you want to have a luxurious lifestyle? Do you want to travel? To eat at nice restaurants? Maybe you want to start your own business.

I believe it’s really important to consciously think about why you want to be rich. If you don’t, it’s easy to get caught up in a race to get more and more money without ever knowing why.

“But Ramit,” you might say, “I’m really smart. I got a 4.0 at Stanford and I don’t really want to take the time to think about this. I just want some cash, playa!!”

After I point and laugh at you, I’ll actually get serious. Trust me–take an hour to write it down and compare your long-term goals to what you’re actually doing on a day-to-day basis. It’s easy to say and harder to do, so I’ve taken my own advice below. And hopefully, I can use these things to explain why I teach people to be rich. It’s not just money–far from it.

Why I teach/learn how to be rich

In one sentence: I never want to have to make a bad decision because of money (e.g., staying at a job I don’t love because of car payments).

Long-term goals of earning wealth (in order):

  • Give my parents a retirement where they don’t have to work if they don’t want to
  • Comfortable, sometimes gaudy lifestyle (I love pens)
  • Make career decisions because I want to, not because of money
  • Stay in touch with my friends by seeing them in person often
  • Start a scholarship fund for high school/college entrepreneurs [done]

There it is: an online, accountable list of goals for why I teach and learn how to be rich. What if you made a list like this and checked it every 6 months to see if you were moving towards your goals?

I dont think I want to be filthy rich, but I want to be comfortably well off to do the foln..

1. Make career decisions because I want to, not because of money

2. Start a scholarship fund/Open a school that teaches lifeskills, for underprivileged

Your post made me think more than my usual comfort level about richness associated with money. Thanks!

i want to live comfortably in life, take care of family and start my own bussiness. But the main reason I would like to be rich so I could give more to help people in need. That more important that having high quailty things when you can be happy with just he basic.

It nothing wrong with having nice things in life, but difference would it make if you ate your food on a $10 plate than a $400 plate.
Its good to save. Live to give, not to receive

I agree with you, I would rather eat on a cheaper plate as well. (even a paper plate will work). I just want to live without worries of,, say going to the store and if I have enough money to buy the things I need.. I am single parent, I have raised my two daughters on My Own. I would just like to meet a nice down to earth person, without living check to check, I would like to walk in a store and buy what I want without wondering if I can afford it

Now i have seen how poverty is, I want to be able to experiance what it is like to raise my kids without haveing to worry if my electricity or water will get turned off.

Dear Ramit, good point with asking this question, however… don’t you think that there’s a more important one really close, that is: “why do you want to live?”. You know, long-term goals, things like that… sound pretty big.

I was just surfing tonight and stumbled across your blog. I haven’t read all of your articles, but I have yet to find a definition of what rich is. If it is here somewhere, I apologize. I think it would be useful if everyone knew what rich is. Rich or Real Wealth is not a specific number. It differs for everyone. Rich is being able to maintain a lifestyle from your investments only. And the real secret to obtaining this elusive goal, is to not change your lifestyle until you rich this point. At once it is obtained, it is… Read more »

Why do I want to be rich? 1. Having the money means not having to worry over things that won’t matter in 50 years. 2. We want four children. Forget raising costs, think about college! 3. We don’t want a terribly extravagant lifestyle, but we do want to raise horses. This requires serious $$$. 4. I want to homeschool my children… this means that either myself or my husband would almost HAVE to be a stay at home parent. 5. I want to start my own theatre/voice school (just graduated Voice Performance), preferably as a not-for-profit “teaching theatre”… not high-rent… Read more »

Yes before undertaking a plan its nice to pursue reason, if only for a very brief time. I would like to be rich so that I could have greater controll over my life and others around me. Like right now I am moderately poor. So I don’t choose what food to eat and when. I eat whatever I can get whenever I can. Sometimes I eat multiple meals in a couple hours of food I don’t like because its free. So I would like to controll and plan my life more. But mostly the biggest reason I want to be… Read more »

I am financially free at 29. I am continue to learn to make money and invest it until I reach my own personal cash flow goals. What motivates me? Two things:
Freedom and Fear. I want my freedom. I want to be rich, because I am afraid of being poor. PS Ramit- fabulous job on riding the Why We Want You To Be Rich wave (PR and SEO wise this week I mean)- your site traffic should be through the roof! I hope people stay and learn!

I want to be Rich because i could live a more expansive lifestyle, But most importantly is the need to give. Giving is Fullfilling. Brings you closer to what we all really want which is Happiness. Finding contentment~ compare yourself with a child from the Darfor region in Africa experiencing Genoside through starvation and you will quickly learn to be content with what you have and be HAPPY. Compare yourself to Trump, Gates and the like and you will be unhappy. I know i will be Rich all my life in more ways than one because i wont ever quit,… Read more »

“Making career decisions because I want to, not because of money” adds a fresh perspective to my thought process.

The purpose of money in my life:
food, shelter, day to day expenses & helping those in need.

Long-Term goals of earning wealth:
Make art as a career (having a job I want – not need for money)
Give it away to help tell God’s story
Take care of my brother after we’re gone
Travel the world & experience other cultures.

Love the blog. I was just wondering: what would you say to someone who agrees with everyone you write, but intends on going into a very low-income field (academia) and doesn’t have a lot of start-up capital (so to speak)? Yes, saving and starting early (not even 20, so I’m good there), but can you teach me to be okay with being lower middle class?

I think this website is the best resource I have seen about “getting rich” I have read books from Donald Trump to RObert Kiyaski ‘or what ever his name is ‘. I have dedicated my life on becoming rich because I grew up in such a poor state”no food,no clothes” and I believe that a little hard work will produce all the things not only want but need.

Rich… for me is not having to do anything. Not because I want to do nothing, but because I want to have complete freedom over the use of my time. My plan involves me having to put in roughly half an hour of work every day, but I think that’s reasonable. I think I’ve been failing so far because I’m not making any goals for ‘right now’, and because I’ve gone too far pursuing my current lifestyle, which I don’t want. I want to live on the water, in the tropics, to build, and have financial freedom, and I’ve married… Read more »

Why do I want to be rich? When my son asks me if we can go to a soccer game, I could say, “sure, when?” Instead, my answers are – “How much does it cost?” and “I have to work.” Children grow up so fast, and this time is precious. I should be spending this time with my kids instead of spending every ounce of time and energy just to provide the necessities.

In order to be rich you must have to know your WHY. Some people have a stronger WHY then others. Hence some will actually go after their goal to be financially independent. The unfortunate reality is that many turn to things on the internet and are taken for a ride with the promise of making huge amounts of money. It’s time to get back to reality. Yes it is possible to become rich working from home and using the internet, but it’s a huge learning curve. So unless you find a person with integrity and some smarts your chances are… Read more »

I am not into flashy cars, private jets or swimming pools, etc, but I do like antiques and want a big country estate designed by myself, with huge grounds that I can turn into a park for local people. I guess I want to display status, but in ways that make other people happy also. I want to collect all the old leather-bound books that end up in the backs of antique stores and create a massive library that has that dusty smell of polished wood and… Read more »

I don’t want to be”rich”, I am rich with the love and health of myself and my children. My faith in God makes me rich as well. I work very hard , I am a nurse with two teen aged sons, but we are always scraping change from paycheck to paycheck, especially just to pay for insurance, groceries and gas, lights and housing. I have cut corners in everyway imaginable. I just want to be able to do something, besides pay bills and work all the time. We barely have money at the end of the month for groceries and… Read more »

I want to wealthy beyond measure. Now I know that is shooting a bit too high, but I want to do everything I want to do when I want to do it. Fly to Vegas to go to a restuarant, then fly to NY for a Knicks game. But honestly helpng others achieve thier true potential is good too. I love children and they make me smile more than anything in the world.
I want time to get educated, and time to read all the books I wnat to read.

What does it mean to be rich? It’s more than having allot of money. As it’s been said money can’t buy you happiness but it sure doesn’t hurt. Money is a great tool but a terrible taskmaster. I’d want to be come successful having the feeling of accomplishment as well as fulfillment. Money alone can’t achieve this. Many wealthy people are the sadist people you’ve ever met. And some of there children commit suicide. So money alone isn’t the answer. But the ability to live and not have a concern of the next bill coming or if I dream about… Read more »

At 16 years old, I have over $100,000 in my Bank. As being the richest kid school, I still haven’t gotten my driver’s license. I wear regular clothes. I think before spending. Although I’m very thrifty, when it comes to business, I bet $10,000-$20,000 at a time and I love it. I’m a risk taker and also I read a lot like crazy. I turned $3k into $20k. Then $20k into $100k.

I do not like the rich word. People who use it tend to be uneducated i prefer wealthy. There are many reasons i would like to become wealthy or financially independent. For starters when you are wealthy you don’t have to worry about whether your going to have a job tomorrow or how your going to pay for basic necessity’s. Wealthy means that you and your family’s future are set. no matter what happens tomorrow and that is a good feeling which sadly not many people know what that feels like.

Still this doesn’t make sense to me. If you had said something like “I want to be rich to just live a luxurius, extremely comfortable life” (Wich, you kind of did in the second point) I would have. Nothing wrong with wanting your own happiness, (or what you believe would be your happiness, cause one can never know, right?)

Just want to give you a heads-up that I created something that would be a great addition to an upcoming blog post on the topic (if you have any upcoming work on the subject). It’s a list of 20 reasons ‘Why Play the Euromillions’.

Let me know if this is something you’d be interested in and I can send it your way to check out.

Either way, keep up the good work!

Rich people start one business successfully, they usually are successful with the others too. Because it doesn’t really matter what business they are in.. They are wired for success. It just comes to them naturally. They have very strong neural connections, in the qualities that make you successful with money. THAT is the only difference between most of people and a Bill Gates…. If he hadn’t made money with Microsoft, he’d of made money somewhere else. He has a rich person’s brain… And you’ll be able to do it by just by watching 90 second “movie previews”, and going through… Read more »
