Build wealth when you‘re young and ignore your friends who laugh at you for not enjoying life like them


Everybody wants to be rich, almost everyone wishes to have countless monies in their bank accounts.

Most people you’ll come across wish to be like world Billionaires and Millionaires such as Bill Gates, Jack Ma, Warren Buffet, Aliko Dangote just to mention a few.

But the question is, the very rich people we see in our communities, did they just become what they’re today just after sleeping and waking up and doing nothing?

If all you do is spend your money on luxuries, new clothes, expensive drinks, and foods among others, then your chances of becoming financially independent are very slim.

The only truth that we refuse to realize is, you must “make hay while the sun shines”.

As young as you are now, start something. Invest your money into some useful venture instead of wasting it on pleasures that don’t really matter.

Of course, it’s okay to ‘spoil’ yourself once in a while but it doesn’t mean you should make spoiling yourself an everyday thing.

Also, note that your friends may mock you for not enjoying like them but just stay focused. You’ll be a happy man when you time of harvest comes.

And as Nigerian author, Reno Omokri puts it, “Build wealth when you‘re young and ignore your friends who laugh at you for not enjoying life like them. Then enjoy your wealth when it has flourished and refrain from laughing at those same ‘friends’ when the realities of life hits them in old age”


  1. It’s good to do so. Just try not to go overboard with it. Your youth is perhaps the most vital stage in your life. Youthful exuberance could make you poor later in life; chasing too much money could make your life boring once you’re old.
    It’s good to be smart and find a good balance between the two.

  2. This is a very great piece to reference, especially as we endeavored to make life worthwide. As is often said, life starts at 40, now that 40-year is speedily creeping in, trading pleasure and luxury for building wealth matters. There is nothing more disturbing than living your youth in luxury and retiring in poverty during old age where lives should be lived to their full effect. So take notes and govern, especially the material thirsty youth of today.
