‘Money won’t make you happy but it will make you mean’
Are rich people mean? We all like to beat the competition, taking part in a Formula One race as you can see it from the wonderful roads of Dubai.
‘The rich’ think they can never lose and don’t want to so they never give up. We see people cutting you off on the roads, starting heated arguments, never wanting to wait in a queue. Sometimes, people with a lot of money or with a lot of education seem to think they are better than others.
But more does not always make someone better. However, when one believes they’re better than another, it’s often easy to treat others with disrespect. When I see people with a brand new shirt and pants, a pair of polished shoes, with a tie and a suit pulling out that wallet with millions of colourful cards in it, we feel that they are the king and on top of the world.
Obviously, their main intention is money so they will be self-centered and mean. My advice to everyone is always come two steps down. Money won’t bring you happiness. One day if you don’t have money in your account, you will go begging for it.
The thing is we’ve all learned from these people and have picked up the same habit so it’s now not just the rich, but everyone from the grocery store keeper to the taxi drivers who are mean and impatient.
