Do you admire someone who makes more money than you, are you jealous of them or are you simply happy where you are at in your current financial situation?

I do pretty good for myself but have to admire people who make more. Sometimes a little jealousy is normal, it's human nature. One of my friends is a millionaire and when I visit his house I am always in awe at the nice things, huge house and property he has. But then I have to sit back and think to myself how much better I have it than some people. Ever visit someones mansion or nice house and then come back to your home and look around like WTF is this? Where did I go wrong.

Must be nice to have a million in the bank, I'd love to just sit and stare at the bankbook :)

Money isn't a measure of a person to me so i tend to overlook the fact they have more to spend, it doesnt fuss me. As long as i have enough to do what i need to do, im happy.

Not really...

But let me make one thing clear. The only people who say money can't make you happy are poor.

Well this is the capitalism system, what do you expect? I personally dont care about other people's wealth because the middle class people pwn them anyway.

Yes money do make a person happier IMHO. I don't want to go so far and say that I'm "jealous" of people with alot of money, but of course; to have those kind of money that some people have, would for sure be veeeeeery nice.

I've everything I've ever wanted, what need would I have for more money? I suppose if I did need more money I could just go and get it easily enough anyway.

Hmm. Am I jealous of other people's wealth? Yeah. I would make every effort to get it for myself, as a matter of fact. Unfortunately I don't know anyone with enough money to bother trying for, at the moment. Jealously isn't very useful though, pure greed is. It gives you the drive to get more money. It's pretty easy to do, even if you're not cold-hearted. Investing it in assets, stocks, savings and the like all helps, if you know what you're doing first-hand. As for people with less wealth than me (an amusing suggestion, considering my wages...), our family had no sympathy when we were poor, they won't get any sympathy either. If you can't even reach the shovel to dig yourself out of your own mess, I'm sure as hell not going to give you one. That's what I've learned from life from a very early age. It's a dog-eat-dog world, and all a socialist government does is make everybody worse off. Take everything you can, give nothing back.

Not really but I respect people who are succesful. Not because of their money but because of the work they had to do to get it.

i have to go with fancy pants on this one, i respect people who made succes by working hard , fair and honoustly. I dont respect people who just got the millions for nothing and brag about it, keep it all to themselfs or got it by doing less legal acitvities or exploiting others. Money is nice to have but it is not the most important thing by far (friendship, loyality and love are).
