Nouveau Riche

Who wants to be wealthy? Who wants to be a millionaire or even billionaire? Well, obviously, nearly everyone or should I say, every one will say they wish for it and sometimes daydreams. As we each and every one knows, being rich enables you to do almost anything and everything. You become famous; you have a lot of wealth. You buy luxurious things like car, mansions and rest houses. You can purchase your own private plane and can onboard on a luxurious cruise. Being rich is not simple. It needs a lot of tough works and learn to be rich from the people who already succeeded reaching their dream as being rich people. You can find many rich people on internet and aspires to be one of them. If we are given a chance or opportunity, perhaps we can meet them personally. Stepping into the ladder of success is difficult. And being on top and rich is very fulfilling. Do you still want to be one of them?

So what is Nouveau Riche? Nouveau riche is “new money” in French. Nouveau Riche refers to a individual who as acquired considerable wealth within his or her generation. The individual was previously part of a lower socioeconomic rank, and that such wealth has provided the means for the acquisition of goods or luxuries that were previously unobtainable. This term can be used in a derogatory fashion, for the purposes of social distinction, to describe persons with newfound wealth and who are viewed as lacking the experience to use wealth in the same manner as “old money” – persons from families who have been wealthy for multiple generations.

Poor to rich not only happens in fairy tales. If we have perseverance and patience, then, climbing to the ladder of success is simple… If only we do trust ourselves…
