Is a self-made rich person better than a rich person who inherited their wealth or won the lottery?

+2 votes

I think that all self-made rich people are indeed better than any person who became rich and wealthy entirely through an inheritance from either their parents and/ or their relatives or who won the lottery.

This is because all self-made rich people had to work very hard to achieve financial freedom and accumulate a substantial amount of money for themselves.

They depended solely on their own time, effort, creativity, innovativeness, entrepreneurial spirit, persistence, ingenuity, resourcefulness, independence, in order to make money and succeed in life.

In other words, they have paid the hefty price to become rich.

On the other hand, people who became rich by an inheritance or by a stroke of luck, such as winning the lottery, did not really have to commit themselves to working very hard to make a lot of money, as their riches and wealth came to them very easily and very effortlessly.

This is the main reason why most rich people who inherited their wealth from their parents/ relatives or became rich by winning the lottery, do not really know how to treasure their newfound riches/ wealth very much and very carefully.

Anything that is achieved through easy means is taken very frivolously and very carelessly.

Anything that is achieved through much more harder, much more difficult, and much more tougher means is taken much more seriously and much more carefully.

That is the sad thing about human nature and human behavior - people do not cherish anything that is given to them very easily and very effortlessly, but they will only take something very seriously if they had to invest a lot of time and effort to get it.

I think it's more admirable, but I don't believe that neccessarily  makes them a better person in general.

Atta girl.... Money doesn't make you better.. ,color of your skin, your education, your home car or job don't make you better

Your actions are what sets you apart.  Your a good person or you aren't, it's pretty simple

Generally speaking, I think people who come from wealth that has been handed down over and over, have a family culture with certain survival traits that insure the money stays within the family. It is a self preservation thing because they have so many people who want some of it.

I belive the late actor Mickwey Rooney once said, for every million dollars you have, there are a million people wiht a million ways to get it from you. And he was a generous man too with a million wives too...lol

I don't think people are better or worse based on their money or lack thereof-nor does it matter how they acquired it.

Better is not the word but smarter (in knowing how to manage it etc). But that's not to say all people who have inherited money or won the lottery are not smart, pretty sure some are and  doing very well.

There isn't a better or worse- the aforementioned choices are all rich.
