If lots of money comes about too easily, things don’t work out well, especially for young people.
Access to a lot of money gives you many opportunities; you can travel around the world, study at the best universities. Children of wealthy parents, who don’t need to do anything because they know that their parents will provide them with a good life, rarely appreciate the opportunities that they have. They’re convinced from the outset that they don’t have to do much, and spend time partying and wasting money with which they could do a lot of good.
Unfortunately, it’s true that wealth that comes about easily – from winning the lottery or inherited from your parents, doesn’t lead to anything good. People who haven’t learned the value of money can’t appreciate it, so they whimsically spend their money. They act terribly. They don’t understand how hard you have to work and how much you have to dedicate yourself to get that much money.
Excellent examples are the rich kids from London who boast about throwing away their money. They throw jewelry into the toilet, pour thousand dollar champagne over themselves. They buy things that others can only dream of, just to destroy it, and what’s most important is that they haven’t earned a single penny on their own. Everything they have is thanks to the hard work of their forefathers.
