Why is This Idiot Rich and I Am Not
By George Chege,
LOWELL, Mass-October 29- I am sure you were once introduced to a milionaire who appeared smart, sharp and admirable - before he spoke. After listening to him for a while and catching up on some gossip about him, the same millionaire lost his glamour and you wondered aloud to yourself, "Why is this idiot rich and i am not?"
If wealth had a simple, direct and obvious relationship to the level of intelligence (IQ), then every professor would be a millionaire and every idiot would be writhing in poverty.
How come some people like you who are good by nature, well-bred, never missed a day in school, and very hardworking are struggling pay-check to pay- check? How come some people who do not have manners, never attended afternoon classes and are ignorant of classical theories and national history revel in so much wealth?
Below I quote Charles Revson the founder of REVLON, a billion dollar health and beauty company.
"Look kiddie. I built this business by being a bastard. I run it by being a bastard. I'll always be a bastard, and don't you ever try to change me." — Charles Revson, founder of Revlon, to a senior executive within his company.
If you want to know some of the reasons wealth and riches have been dodging you lately, then read Robert Shemin's book, "Why is this idiot rich and i am not?"
This is our recommended book for October.
