I believe our goal should not be a magic figure, whether 1 million or 30 million, that after reaching this figure, we can retire comfortable.

 We should strive to provide a comfortable life for our family, a good education and a better future for our children and enough savings for a comfortable retirement. If God has seen fit to bless us with a million or 30, we use it wisely and help people along the way.

^ nicely put. money is just a means to an end. we need to find our real life purpose.

OT: hey, i'm looking around for a notebook too. ano pong brand na tinitingnan mo? i have HP or acer in my shortlist. adding 5-10k should be fine coz PC lifetime naman is about 3 years e. get a core 2 duo (sta. rosa) no less. :cool2:

I guess the itinerary of life is like this:
0.Birth
1.Study
2.Get a job
3.Party after work
4.Marry your love
5.Buy a house
6.Have kids
7.Pay the kids education
8.Save for retirement
9.Retire from work
10.Wait for death

I think may be I can put no.8 before no.3 so that I have a better chance that I won't end life miserably.  My first million is for retirement.  It's small now but 30 years of compounding can do a lot. After my first million, I'll do numbers 3 to 7 +other personally interesting activities. :D

hmmm..as i'd earned my first mill, you will find out that 1m isn't enough but a catalyst for greater greed and ambition( why? Kasi with more money comes more things that are accessible to you,more opportunities to even scale that wealth more, more sophistication on your tastes) . but it also makes a positive dent on your love ones kasi starting at 1m and more you will be more inspired to help them and be generous(in a logical way that is).but you need din your love ones to put to the ground or else that 1st mill will get in your head too much.

besides the point, making your 1st bundle is uber nice especially when young pero as everything life is , it depends on how that bundle affect you.

I also believe there more to life than earning money.

On the other hand, having money also allows you to enjoy the good things in life.  Allows you freedom and less pressure.  What I meant is that a man with money can have the leisure of time to study options in front of him, he can walk tall and he can enjoy the pleasures of life that may be deemed expensive for others.  He can take time to sit back and consider things.

An example is richpulubi, look at the way he does things.  



There is a zen saying that goes: For every challenge, a novice can see many solutions. But for a master, every challenge has but few solutions.

Segurista and I share some thing in common because we are of the same age...and that is, we are running out of time. You guys may have set aside a million, and yet be in your early thirties. We on the other hand have a net worth worthy of someone our age. And, after the age of forty, we can take less risks, cuz we have less time to recuperate. The options open to us are many, relative to our being able to afford them. But time is not a luxury we have. So, time-wise, we are less wealthy.

So, you young guys enjoy your strength and longevity...take the risks that will make your lives more fulfilling! Be alive! Find your purpose! Be free to be all you can be!

It was Teddy Roosevelt who said:Pity the timid, for they don't know victory nor defeat.

When you earned your first million it's easier to earn your 2nd, 3rd and so on...
For me, I earned my first million when I am 23 years old. 6 years later,  I have P4 million pesos in investible funds. In the next 3 years, around P7 million pesos. It's just a numbers game. But it's only the first million that it's difficult to earn!

I agree with you wealth manager. :P the 1st mil is the most difficult one. :P where you made your bundle man? I presume also that your handle suggests your also in finance? :P
