    I was talking to my Brother yesterday about this. I was listening to a Diddy interview and he said he works 20 hours a day.

    I mean to become very rich you really have to work extremely hard and long hours. But is this at the expense of relationships? (ie family and friends.)

    Not really. Depends how high maintenance/independant your partner is.

    Diddy also seems like a complete tosser.

    He's full of shít. This would mean around 2-3 hours sleep a day and you couldn't function on that.

    Cool bro story.

    Who's Diddy?

    Generally, yes, if you're in business or such you'll have to work long hours, for a fair few years at least, but I'd imagine most people with a strong desire to earn lots of money for the sake of it wouldn't be the type of people to get too heavily invested in personal relationships anyway.

    2-3 hours does sound a bit extreme, but I remember reading an interview with Gordon Ramsey and he says he only sleeps 4-5 hours a night.

    Unless you win the lotto or come into a lot of money, in order to ger rich you need to work hard and make sacrifices. Sure you might not get to see your family so much, but at the same time I think the it's worth it if you're able to provide you and your family with a ton of wealth and finacial stability.

    I'll keep it short and sweet,Family. Religion. Friendship. These are the three demons you must slay if you wish to succeed in business. When opportunity knocks, you don't want to be driving to a maternity hospital or sitting in some phony-baloney church. Or synagogue."

    Lyrics like this don't come easy bro.........
    uh huh yeah

    **** my enemies

    **** my foes

    damn these hoes

    back up off me

    give me room to breathe

    i'm not hearin it

    im not fearin it

    im up to my ears in this

    bull****

    i'm destructive

    some women find that seductive

    some say it's lunacy

    reluctantly i've been moving on

    i ignore you

    sorry if i bore you

    i neglect you

    don't mean to disrespect you

    can't you see

    i love you dearly

    and i sincerly

    but you annoy me

    you can't avoid me

    i'm here to stay

    forever andever

    and a day that's never

    i can't let you go

    i can't forget it

    why you did it

    and won't aquit it

    i wanna fight you

    i'll ****in bite you

    can't stand nobody like you

    you can't run

    you can't hide

    no surprise

    close your eyes

    come with me...

    The definition of Rich is relative.
    When you get into the deca-millions it seems to become a dick-measuring exercise with people.

    So you want to be a millionaire?
    Save €9,155, move to Japan and declare yourself a 'millionaire'.

    Got talking to a lad from Madagascar a year ago and he said he was working at his job (hotel reception) until he had €30k saved. He would at that point be a millionaire at home and could retire if he wished. He was only 26 and probably on minimum wage but it was admirable to see that he had it all planned out.

    this is just shoite they tell people to make them happier being poor -"ah, he may be rich but I bet he's not happy". Most of the rich people I know spend half their lives on holiday while still getting richer as their minnions keep the business going.

    Multi Millionaires should never get mattied.

    There'll be always be a queue of gash. Just bang them and dump them

    no-one likes being mattied, he smells of poor and wears Le Coq Sportif.

    Hes a producer as well as a shít "rapper". but i highly doubt he works that much.

    Also my old boss told me you can have love or money unless you can find another 7 days in the week.
