I don't get it? When people get to the point where they are billionaires or even making like 50k a month why do they keep working and stressing about work? I realize circumstances are different for different people but I'm just talking about the people who clearly don't need to work anymore and can still buy anything they want. Why do they keep working instead of just traveling and enjoying their life at that point?

Like why do people at the top of companies who are billionaires do things to ruin the lives of employees to make themselves even richer? I mean they're billionaires already. That can literally buy anything they want but they do any little thing for a couple extra million. I just don't get it. I could see if they did it because they wanted something really bad they couldn't afford but there's literally almost nothing they can't afford that they already want and have tons on money left and even more coming in.

at that point it ceases to be stressful.

actually for me the stress went away when I was consistently making more than $6k a month. I only need about $3k to survive so anything after that is just padding.

beyond what you need you work for what you want. Once you're all good you work to help others. Once that's done you work because it's what you're best at.

once you stop working there's not a lot left to do. I know you think you'd spend several lifetimes on your hobbies and passions but that's not really true. 10 years is more than enough to burn you out on what you love to do.

You'd have to have no imagination to be a bored millionaire.
you start to realize you can do all that stuff another day, and eventually you start to put it off.

there's no particular need to get out of bed, so you start by sleeping in sometimes. Pretty soon you're up til 4 AM posting on Veeky Forums and find yourself waking up in the afternoon. eventually you're sleeping 10-12 hours a day with no real need to get up and do anything. Most of the things you might want to do you've already done a few times and didn't find them all that thrilling because you didn't have to work to get them done. It gets harder to find new experiences or bigger thrills, you've tried it all and you're bored.

depression may set in, perhaps alcoholism. Or maybe just a peaceful sort of satisfaction that you've done absofuckinlutely everything you hoped and dreamed you would and you can rest with a job well done.

but that's just my own observations. Perhaps you're a perpetual motion machine that will never get bored with hedonism or academia or clipping coupons or whatever bullshit currently entertains you.

I expect after a few years of wealthy retirement you'll come around to my way of thinking though.

I always figured people people cared about their legacy so that they can see how their lives affected others after they passed. If you believe when you die you die what's the point. Even if all you care about is yourself you'd be far better off using your money for pleasure and fun over something that you'll never see because you'll be dead.

You even have an advantage making friends for the most part. Say you and your wife meet two new people and they invite you over for dinner. They are both equally interesting but one lives in a mansion and one lives in the ghetto. Who are you more likely to take up on that offer? It might be superficial at first but over time you could become great friends.

Me too.

but ultimately that's why a lot of people find work to do in their retirement. It may be the same work they did before they retired or it may be something new, but they find work.

just because without something you need to accomplish you're not going to do anything. The first few years are full of activity, but you slow down over time. There's no pressure.

Your real friends stop doing things with you because they don't like feeling like a leech and you don't like doing ordinary stuff anymore.

I like to go metal detecting, I keep saltwater fish tanks, I travel a lot. I blow money on absurd things nobody else knows about and would be horrified to hear if they did know.

I could easily take money-grubbing strangers along on my adventures, but I have a wife and kids so I'm not lacking in company. Sometimes I'll take my kids' friends along on vacations, but even then people wonder why a rich man would want to take their kids on vacation. Things get weird when you have money. Socially your relationships change a lot. They shouldn't have to but they usually do.

To be fair, it's not all on the friends. While those who acquire wealth strive to show "they haven't changed", their friends tend to hate them BECAUSE they act "like nothing has changed".
To the friends, things have totally changed, and their newly rich friend is being a dick by not acknowledging this obvious fact.

I'm fucking hungry right now but I can't eat because I'm working my life away and if I leave I'm fired 100%. If you truly are rich and we're bored and hungry right now you could literally go but a sushi kit right the fuck now and the stuff to make sushi and do something interesting and new and if you didn't like it no problem. Throw it away and try something else or just order food.

I stopped working at 32. I went back to school and completed a masters in a completely useless field I find interesting. I volunteered in that field for six years, working part time for free and co-authoring two papers.

then I got frustrated with the petty politics of academia at about the same time I got bored with what was essentially just a hobby for me but serious business for the people I worked with.

a 32 year old married man with millions of dollars to his name doesn't make a ton of friends in college. I had more in common with the professors than the students, and even many of them were younger than me and a bit put off by my presence.

Food is a different story. I still love eating out but that's also just something I do. If I want to eat something I go do it. If I want to do something I go do it. But it's not as exciting or even interesting when there's no effort required. Instant gratification ceases to be gratifying after a while.

Is it that hard to make things hard on yourself? Almost any new hobby is going to be challenging and fun. Start riding a Enduro around and hitting trails. Cruising around on a street legal enduro is literally the best thing in the word or you can start lifting weights or anything man or shoot guns. You can literally do almost anything. Most people devote most of their time into one or two hobbies and thet entertains them for the majority of their life and you being rich and having almost limitless free time can do almost anything you want. If working makes you happy you can work but on your own terms and you can walk out whenever you want. I don't believe for one second nothing isn't challenging for you. I think you're just depressed.

no one who is a billionaire got there through working. they inherited it, or stole it, or obtained it through pure nepotism. most CEOs do little or no actual work. they would have a nervous breakdown inside of an hour if they had the workload of a waitress or even a secretary. when you say they continue to "work" you mean that they continue to fly around the world, play golf and go to parties while their immediate underlings try to keep them from damaging the company or embarrassing themselves. trump is a perfect example. everything he has was handed to him by his dad, and every single business venture he has personally managed has crashed and burned.

Your question, and in fact most answers in this thread, are the reason you will stay poor. You don't get it, and most people never will.

Let me explain it to you in terms you can relate to. Imagine life is a game, let's use an mmorpg for easy analogy. How would you judge your play style? And that of the people around you and on this board?

Some people stay in their starting town forever, killing the same monsters and playing with sticks in the mud while their parent's disappointment slowly turns to resentment.
Others travel the world but quickly realize they will need to level up and get gold to really experience it all.
Others wander around lost, doing the odd quest here and there. Their frustration building until they harness their anger as fuel for grinding, or go into denial and become scammers/thieves etc.

But the successful ones? They relish the grind. They make it fun, even grinding is never dull with them. Their parties are the envy of all and even if they max out their stats they will never stop. Because they fucking love what they do.

But by all means, stay bitter and lost. They only shine by comparison with your dull colors.

Snarelure

It's not that way for a lot of 'wealthy' people. I'll let you fill in your own definition of wealth. There's lots of people with enough cash to live comfortably for the rest of their lives who do exactly what you're talking about. Go fishing, play golf, go to Thailand twice a year, pop viagra and bang hookers for two weeks. You never read about those people. For the ones who could afford to reach down between their legs, grab the big orange handle labeled EJECT but choose not to I think it comes down to a number of different reasons depending on the person. Greed, Pride, Legacy, making it to the next rung on the ladder, because working is more fun than anything else they could be doing. Lots of reasons that might not make sense unless you're standing in their shoes. None of which means you have to be the same way.

What I've noticed is that for many billionaires, making money becomes their hobby. If you spend most of your life doing something it becomes your purpose. It's a lot like the Iowa football coach who retired and died a year later.

These are people who need something driving them. Making money is what they are good at and what they enjoy. Sure it's stressful, but the rush of making millions in one deal is amazing.

Besides, if they spent more time at home, they would have to deal with their succubus trophy wives.

I think it comes down to a difference in mindset. Billionaires (and successful people in general) spend their time thinking outwardly, eg "how can I improve the world?" Unsuccessful people think inwardly, eg "how can I have fun for myself?" When a rich person sees a poor person playing video games, they think "why doesn't he just stop wasting his time and do something productive." When a poor person sees a rich person working all the time they think "why is he working so hard and wasting his life away." This difference in mindset is fundamental, it's why elon musk started two companies after selling two companies, it's why Donald Trump is running for president, it's why bill gates spends all his time running a philanthropy, and it's why you'll never understand billionaires (taking to OP).

Ugghhh blegh. I like the "keeping score" and "competition" explanation much better.
Billionaires are the most wasteful, uninterested, dumbasses who enjoy seeing the world grow more degenerate per year instead of fixing it.
Why doesn't Bill Gates make a medical industry and dump his money into biological advancements? Something simple like no longer needing condoms, tampons, removing the inability to have children or enabling breeding disabilities for China, Brazil, Africa. Or growing your teeth back or stopping/enabling hair growth through the body. Or removing cancer by giving each cell self-conscious humble thoughts in which they kill themselves instead of multiplying at abnormal rates.

Why doesn't Markus Persson Notch help the video game industry or animation industry by financing hand-drawn animation again or quality video games with non shit textures/graphics and gameplay over style.

Why did Disney cancel all the funds for Tron Uprising in favor of promoting Star Wars? Why are they dumping all the good shows on a premium channel Disney "XD" ?
Why didn't Walter Disney himself create original franchises: Ghostbusters, Star Trek, Star Wars. Why did he had to steal and retell stories from fairy tales?

It's not even like some evil bad boss(Rothschild) is looming over their heads telling them to not advance the world and not make people think for themselves and give them quality stuff. They're just that ignorant and uncaring at being responsible members of society.

I hate this world. There's nothing stopping an intellectual from ruling it. But unfortunately intellectuals don't make money. Self-absorbed competition-heavy ego-maniacs make money. Or lucky faggots who are too selfish and cowardly to use that money for good.

I'll give you another quote from that 30m guy.
He said, "Rich people don't chase the money, they have something that forces money to come to them"

As in, you have something so unique/great that people will invest in you. e.g.

Can you work 100 hour weeks? IB, get 300k a year by the time you're 30 with lots of extra perks.
Have a track record of high profits managing funds, a rich person to hedge fund "connector" will find you and give you 100m to manage.
Do you have a 3.8+GPA in STEM. Go tell a Google recruiter and they will give you amazing perks + 100k starting to be an engineer for them.

Most successful people worked hard.
Greg Coffey wouldn't have got that job at macquarie group if he didn't get a great GPA in his Econ bachelors.
Lloyd Blankfein wouldn't have got to CEO of goldman if he didn't get a law degree to get in to IB and then work 1 week straight with 5 hours of sleep total which was in his office that got him that promotion to becoming managing director and then move up to CEO.

People don't get lucky. They work hard and seize the opportunity because nobody else could.

In the latter case, I would guess that it's borne out of some kind of evolutionary instinct to accumulate as many resources as possible, maybe mixed with some OCD.

If I got to even $500,000 I'd be fucking off training in MMA, doing hobbies a few of which I might be able to monetize, and entertaining myself. My cost of living is low because I'm not a fucktard looking to waste money on shiny bullshit to status-whore myself for the sake of catching the attention of dumb whores.

False. Getting rich is like attaining any other goal. U wanna be a pro ball player? study the players. Do what they do, study the rukes, train like they do etc... u wanna be rich? Study rich people, learn to do what they do. I'm a broke wagecuck but i diligently work every day studying the SEC laws and learning how and what to invest in. What to avoid. Trying to spend time around rich people and get them to like me.

Hell, i bought us a case of beer the other day with my last $20. The guys drinking it with me are worth ~$20 mill easily. Everyone around here wants a handout or a loan or a job. They said i'm one of the few people that work a day job that they know that "gets it." They said i'll soon be richer than them if i keep it up.

Maybe it was just to stroke my ego but it's nice to have guys that have "made it" telling me that my dream is acheivable and i'm on the right path.

If i die broke then oh well, ill die knowing i tried...

Believe it or not, not everyone works simply to draw a wage to cover their personal cost of living. The kind of person with the ability to become a CEO tends to also be a visionary, or at the least an ideologue. They may be involved in political sponsorship or philanthropy. They may be dedicated to establishing a family dynasty or securing the best possible pay and conditions for their employees. Or, sure, they may be greedy bastards.

The guy using a computer to type this bullshit out calls Bill Gates and Steve Jobs evil for developing a product that he willingly bought.

I know a man who is a self made millionare. Is net worth is probably in the 50 mil range, although it wouldn't shock me if it was much more. He is full of surprises. He is in his 60s and in extremely poor health. Basically working himself to death. He has one son, who is already totally taken care of. He refuses to retire, even though he has nothing left to gain other than achieving growth that won't matter to his non-existent great grandchildren, yet he continues to work himself to death. His wife even left him because she can't watch him kill himself. He seemingly can't stop.

Both of these posts demonstrate a clear lack of understanding in investing and government.

It's not "billionaires" walking into Nestlé demanding they boost stock prices by any means necessary so they can to boost their wealth, it's an enormously diverse group of people including massive retirement funds. That's the dirty secret of America and social justice. Just about everyone with a decent job has a 401k or pension and everyone benefits from unethical and illegal practices, just as much as the rich.

In the US, a cursory review of the facts makes free healthcare laughable. Medicaid covers 70 million and is administered by private companies for profit. Medicare covers 50 million, 17 million of which are in private Medicare Advantage plans, 10 million purchase private supplemental coverage and they all have private drug plans. 155 million more flat out are covered by the "evil companies". 290/318 million covered or 91% and people have the audacity to scrap the entire system to cover the 9% of the pop who are neither disabled nor elderly and few minors.

I get the ambition part of it all but at some point you've got to just enjoy your success right?

Yeah, like that guy who """retired""", gave his show to someone, and then stole back the show to work for millions for a few more years?

Nigga I'm flipping burgers for a living here and I'm studying Economics and Finance to get in the banking meme and make money off people's misery and debt.

I will NEVER be satisfied with 80k p.a, I want to keep going and establish a family dynasty and control the world from the shadows like every good kike.

Don't limit yourself and aim big. The only way for you to enjoy life in a carefree manner is to make yourself so rich and powerful nothing would want to fuck with you

Because when you're an adult you don't just have yourself to worry about, but your family/kids/legacy. Also when you retire you die, whats why.
