There have always been tensions between the haves and the have-nots, especially now that the wealth gap is growing bigger, so we decided to give you several motives to work harder than ever to be on the successful side, here are 49 reasons why it’s better to be rich than poor!

Your life significantly changes once you achieve that level of wealth where money is no longer an issue because there’s basically enough for you to live the way you want to and enjoy life to the fullest. Either through hard work or even simply by being born rich, the wealthy have significant advantages over the lesser fortunate that we’ll take a look at in the following segment.

But before we jump right into it, I’d like to start with a quote that perfectly resonates with the topic of this article: I’ve been a poor man, and I’ve been a rich man. And I choose rich every f***ing time! ~ Jordan Belfort

1. You live longer!

Studies show that rich people outlive the others by a good 20 years, that’s plenty of time to live a significant life!

4. You pay lower taxes!

The rich are smart people, they worked really hard for their money and they do not part with it that easily. They have entire systems set in place that prevent governments from taking as big of a cut as they do in case of lower income individuals.

5. You eat better food!

There’s no secret that if you have the money you can afford quality food not available to the large population. Healthier food is also a lot more expensive than fast food these days so the sooner you get wealthier the sooner you can enjoy a healthier lifestyle.
