I do have an opportunity to become rich if I work hard enough. I wish I was born in a rich family.

It depends. If you grew up around bad people, then its best cut lose because you don't want to be friends with people who are living on the down-low.

Growing up in the inner city, I went to school with those kinds of people. Once you're employed, you'll make new friends and eventually find that special someone that interest you.

This is a stupid question. There isn't anyone who wouldn't want to be rich. Just to have the freedom of choice would be great. We are rasied to believe that if we work hard enough, we can become rich. The truth is, the system is set-up for only a very, very few to actually become rich from hard or smart work. The system needs worker bees to survive. How can it survive if everyone becomes rich? Then who will wait on and do the work rich people need done in order to stay rich? A few are allowed through the system so that the workers at the bottom can "believe in the dream" and keep working to make rich people rich.

Well, my definition of rich has nothing to do with money. So from that perspective, of course I want to be rich! Just remember, you can't take it with you...
