Since people seem to be enamored to be asking 'how much $$$ is enough ?' on several threads, I figured I'd ask an offshoot question:

How do you know if/when you are 'rich' ?

    When you have nothing you want everything you see.

    When there is nothing left you want, you're rich.

        When you don't have a boss.

        When you're not thinking all the time about how to make more income.

        When you have your health.  

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        Lep

        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

          You know you are rich when EVERYONE appears to "love" you.

          You know you are rich when people value your opinion even though you don't know what you're talking about. lol

            to a dictator personality (I'm in charge - now do it my way)

                You're rich when you don't think about prices.  It doesn't matter how much that table/couch/car costs, I want it, I'm going to buy it.

                    When people ask you why your cars have those "cat" symbols on them.

                    When people ask why you have to pay a monthly fee when there's no blance just to have that "black" credit card. (American Express Black).

                      All answers one would expect.

                      Someone asked 10 multimillionaires when they thought they were rich, the answers varied:

                      'when I have 100 people working for me'

                      'when I can take the morning off and golf with clients'

                      'when I can take a vacation to China for New Year's'

                      'when I had 5 million dollars in the bank', etc.

                      All of those have to do with money.

                       

                      The one answer that was different than all the others was"

                      'when I can wake up when I want, eat when I want, and sleep when I want'.

                            when you can pay for anything you want, and don't have to fill out a credit application.
