If you change “rich” to “financially independent” and “man” to “person,” I’m 1,000% down with this.
Not enough people realize that 99.99% of the happiness you get from wealth is the financial independence. And you can make yourself financially independence much quicker and easier than you can make yourself rich.
Expensive stuff, beach vacations and fancy restaurant meals sound really nice. But, in terms of happiness, they aren’t worth poop compared with the freedom to not have to do meaningless crap just because you need the money.
