The Allure of The Rich

Imagine having anything you could possibly desire. Imagine living in the big, fancy mansion you've always dreamed of, with a famous celebrity as your neighbor.It sounds a little far fetched, but anything is possible when put your mind to it. 

"The world needs dreamers and the world needs doers. But above all the world needs dreamers who do." - Sarah Ban Breathnach

Yes, I know you have read the same story in some other magazine or online article. Now, you're thinking Tell Me Something That I Don't Know, please bear with me as you continue reading further.

In this world, there are two types of people the Haves and the Have-nots. The Have-nots 
will always be influenced by the "Allure of The Rich." And here's why.

The Money

When Puff Daddy, (now known as Diddy) released his song titled," It's About the Benjamins", well it's true it. Most people want to enjoy the finer things in life. Whether it be having a new car or having a private jet. The money means financial security. Financial security means safety, which is being free of worry. Would you rather live average lifestyle or a Luxurious one? Rhetorical question.

The Power

Having the money isn't the only about buying everything you desire, but also comes with power. Amassing great wealth gives prestige and influence over other people. For example: You and some friends (group of 5 people) are waiting on lineup for nightclub and aren't letting anymore people in because there are too many people inside, but suddenly Jay-Z and Beyonce arrive with  their entourage (group of 20 people) enter with ease. Not a shocker, but now you're really pissed off. (Hey just look at  the picture Obama lecturing Israel's Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahou.)

The Respect 

Do not mistake it for love. Achieving success breeds hate and hate creates enemies. But you will earn respect even from these enemies. They won't love you, but they will show mutual courtesy. People will hold you up on high pedestal because your opinions are valued. Reaching a level where others trying to get to or where others will fail gives a sense of recognition. In short, you matter.

The Women or Better yet The Woman

You have the money, the power,and the respect. Is there anything left? Now last, but not least is the woman. Whether you want the woman or just women in general. It can happen. Women known and unknown will come out of the wood-works just to get your attention because of your wealth. Different types of women of various ethnicities will flock and flock they shall.  The girl you have always had your eye will take notice of you. In a man's life, there is always that one girl he will forever want. If he wants to have her, he must attract and impress her 
with something that intrigues her. A woman I know once told me, if you want get women.

"NO MONEY, NO HONEY." -Anonymous 

Most women want a good provider. Think of it this way, if you aren't able to take care of yourself, how are you going to be able to take of her? Women and men aren't quite so different. It goes back to what was said earlier about financial security being free of worry. She like you wants the best things that life has to offer. 

Thought of The Day:

"Money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish, but it will not replace you as the driver." - Ayn Rand

Money does make the world go round. We need it to buy things we need and want. It keeps a country's economy running.  Don't let money make you compromise your morals and do things you wouldn't normally do. I see it as make money to get things you dream of, use your power to help others in need, earn the respect of others, get the girl of your dreams, but don't let money make you.

Thanks for reading my blog,


  1. It seems you have been paying attention to some lines from a certain Al Pacino. I am not gonna show the examples as we all know where they came from. All in all, the science behind all of this is that you make money with money. The rest comes second. As for Power, it is the ability to define phenomena and make it act in a desired manner (Huey.P Newton). As for the ladies, they are everywhere. From broke to refined, you will find that female to tickle your fancy. I enjoy peeping the science you brng to the table AC...Keep writing.

    Truly Yours
