    let me break this down
    well the point in my case is 17 watches, 2 houses, 12 cars, a jet ski, a helicopter, a lot of jewellery pieces and a diet rich in vintage cognac and Cohibas
    who do I help well my customers who get a good saving on retail prices and the guys who get paid when I spend another few grand
    simply don't be an employee, don't be a generic goon be an original model who people want to copy
    Nah that's not what matters though. 12 cars really? The 2 houses seems fantastic though.

    Being career driven must be a good thing surely? I don't see the point on focusing all of your energies into your career as there's more to life than that but if you're wanting to do well along with being happy in other parts of your life, I see no problem.*

    I don't we all have to make sacrifices. Good on them. But when it comes to women who put their career first and then want/ or expect to have a family like in their late 40s or even older I'm not so keen on.
    Men do this too are you not keen on them either, they will be old men when their kids are teenagers. Same for women but if they want a family at 50 they will probably adopt.

    No. Personally, I'm very ambitious and want to achieve great things in life- for this I need to have a prestigious, high paying job that I'm passionate about and will succeed in. I've made a career plan and have a relatively clear plan on what I'm gonna do to get to the career and life I want. I know this sounds like a cheap, materialistic, commercialised outlook on life but it's really not. My parents have always told me about the importance of having financial freedom, owning your own property and being able to retire early, mainly because they are not able to achieve these goals.

    Obviously, a lot of things matter more to me than my future career. Having a family, taking care of my parents, buying a house and travelling the world, as well as developing my relationship with God are all really important. But having a well paying career is the foundation of a happy, stable life.

    Because some people want to achieve great things in their career and not just settle for the status quo? Maybe.

    I'm surprised at how many people here just want an average life. I thought people were way more ambitious, but I guess dreams need work to come true and people just aren't willing to put in that hard work

    Good luck to you!

    This is just a stock photo. I don't take pictures of my setup but I do have two monitors with Windows Vista.

    I miss the good old days when computer products weren't covered in tiles. :moon:

    I never understood those types of people, for me as long as I have a nice comfy job, a house and a car and 2 holidays a year then that's enough for me. Never understood those who spend £thousands on a watch if I had that much money to splash on a watch I'd donate it instead knowing that there are others who can't afford food.
    try say this when your rich

    I know people just seem to be happy working 9-5 every day, they don't want to do anything different

    Who will be laughing when I will be providing my kids with private education, putting good food on the table and taking them on holiday while you will be living your inferior and basic life where you can not indulge in the finer things in life

    Yes your right. The reason I said women is because we have a biological clock whereas men don't really have one.

    If I can get to the point where I work about 8-9 months a year and spend the rest on holiday then I'll be happy.
