We have all met throughout our lives the successful business man or company director who had the big home and fast car, and on the other hand we have also met.
What I am trying to say is that if you go and see the wealthy man in five or so years then you will likely see that he has lost everything, while the average guy remains the same.
The reason behind this is because of gambling; I don’t just mean conventional gambling such as playing online poker, but also other things that you can gamble at in life such as making the wrong decisions or buying the wrong property.
One of the main reasons that the rich guy has ended up loasing everything is simply because of greed. What I mean is that the normal average guy has been getting along with his normal job for the last few years, he has had to save money for buying a new car or booking a holiday, so he appreciates it a lot more. Once again on the other hand the rich man would have been chucking his money away both left, right and centre. Doing anything that he wanted to and not even considering the consequenses. This would have all led to the wealthy guy losing everything.
It just goes to show you no matter how much money you have you should always look at investing it wisely.
