What would you do if you had 120,000,000 dollars.

What do you want? What do you want to do with your life?

These are probably the hardest question’s to answer. Once you get past all the materialistic stuff like TV’s car’s and more money etc. what do you want to do with your life that is going to give it some meaning. 

Everybody wants more money, but does that motivate you to get more money. More often than not it doesn’t, because you will have to work harder at a job you don’t like. Or unless you want more money out of fear, then you will never have enough and never be happy.

I want you to have every thing you want and be happy, with no guilt or fear. I want you to be passionate about what you are doing every day and not wanting for more. What I want to achieve with this post is to bore down and get to the point where you know what you want to do with your life and you are enthusiastic about the outcome.

What would you do if your dreams where fulfilled?

Imagine you won the lottery; It was one hundred and twenty million euro. You scream and shout you dance about. You’re finally financially free. You are taken care of for the rest of your life. What do you do now? There is no reason to work another day in your life.

You start to think to yourself now what am I going to do. You start making up a list of places to go. You book your flights and away you go first class. The party is on. Yahoo! This is the greatest feeling in the world. One by one you hit all your travelling destinations. You have the best of every thing in the world; you have the house, the car the lifestyle. But bit by bit this becomes boring and normal. You have done it all, you’ve bought it all and you have tried it all. What do you do now that you’re getting bored? Money can’t buy you out of this. Its money that brought you to this place. You’re slowly getting depressed.

So now the buzz of money has worn off. What do you want to do with your life? You can do anything, but what? I’m guessing you’re like me and been so caught up in trying to survive that you have only focused on the relief that having money would bring.

This post is a bit depressing and it’s designed to be. It’s designed to get you to think about what you would really like to do. Who would you help, what difference would you make in the world? What meaning is your life going to have?

I have found that by doing this exercise, the things that are of real value to people in their lives, is not having the big houses. It’s actually helping other people or contributing to the community or teaching people new stuff. When we help people, we feel appreciated, we feel valued and we feel that we have made a difference to that person’s life.

What if your job gave you this feeling? What if you felt like you where making a difference. How would you feel now? Because these feelings are free and you can get them any time you want.

So the big question now is. What would you do if you had 120,000,000 euro and you where bored. How would you spend your money to make a difference? Because this is what you really want to do with your life.

I would love to hear from you, so pleas post replies and I’m sure your contribution will definitely generate and help others to imagine an amazing future. Who knows you may even meet a millionaire who loves your idea.

  1. There is a bit weird slightly crooked french businessman called Paul-Loup Sulitzer who “wrote” a book quite a few years ago, in 1984, called “Le Roi Vert”. In fact he probably had it written by someone else and used his name to sell loads of copies. Nevertheless it is a great story. It’s been a long time since I’ve read it but I do remember it being inspiring. If I remember well it’s about a nobody who manages to get very rich and ends up buying land in the amazon to create his own country. It’s not that well written, even less in it’s english translation, it’s written with the 80’s Wall Street admiration a financier like PLS would think of, it’s a bit of an unrealistic story, but I think you might enjoy reading it just because it tells the path of a guy going from nothing to very rich and then doing something good with his money. http://www.amazon.com/The-Green-King-Paul-Loup-Sulitzer/dp/0818403586

  2. That sounds like the national anthem for the struggling!! What would YOU do if you won or perhaps fucking EARNED 120,000,000. You would protect it, you would stretch it, you would maintain it………you think of this ficticious amount of money in terms of a fantasy, if it were to actually happen to you; your mind set would change completely. Your point of refererence is based on your feelings towards this kind of wealth and has no experiential scope what so ever. Trying to motivate yourself and others through pointing out that things are out of your reach, and you are “ok” with that is not necessary. It is fine to hark back to the reality of life, which is that it is all about society and our place amongst others, helping, teaching…… blah blah, but the constructs of the society that we have created are based on one premise…….CAPITALISM. I find what i read to a be a baseless clawing at something that the author does not understand and also has zero authority to report on…………….Hilarious where a random google search will send you. Get a life retard. And keep playing the lotto, because you will not earn 120,000,000 for journalistic merits any time soon.

    1. Man that is pretty similar to what I want to do. I want to save the orang-utan. the number one reason for their decline is deforestation. so to solve their problem I want to buy up rain forest.

      Cool man fair play.
