There is also an advert (by the same company) playing on the radio saying that to look rich, one is to smile less or was it don't smile (look grumpy?), and a few other things.
Of course, if based on one of my experience with a bit richer than normal businessman not too long back, Keeping It Cool, there must be some truth on how rich people look and behave.
Ok, but today is only on the rich look only.
I've always pondered why some businessmen or top management people have that certain unhappiness. Have you ever taken notice of their photographs in the pictures that appear in the media? Or even at times when they speak on TV interviews? Pictures tell a million things and it is usually through the pictures that we can see them - their emotions.
Of course, we may bump them at certain lush places. But if ever we do, they are so surrounded by guards and other 'important people' and can't see their emotions.
Anyway, I realise that seeing their pictures, there is something missing in these big tycoons. The lower/middle class may sometimes wonder
"Why/ How come? Got everything already but still unhappy?"
Then, not long after I saw the advert, I read somewhere about the rich. To sum up, it says that the more rich one gets, the more insecure he becomes, as there is no knowing when is good enough to stop. That is why they continue to go into bigger deals (most of the times into more unknowns, diverting from their main business). And these deals are big investments and risks as well. Hence, the insecurity.
I believe in that, though I feel a lil sad that these rich people are actually like the rest of the world in insecurity. In fact, minus insecurity, some not rich people have more joyous looks.
The rich may not be like the middle class who are insecure of their jobs or their rents, loans, children's education, but they are insecure in other matters.
Looking back at the pictures, I guess the point I want to make is that these kind of looks just don't make everyone wanting to reach that high status.
Now, turning the other way around, have you seen a happy rich person? I don't mean a happy moment where the smile is for that moment only, but more so, a person who looks rich, is rich in wealth and most of all is rich in happiness?
I've seen a few though it is quite outnumbered. But, these glitter in their smiling eyes just make you feel to aim to achieve their level. In fact, if ever you can come across them, I'm sure they will make you feel good and comfortable too, without much/ any arrogance, rudeness, or insecurity in them.
So, really, is there a look to being rich and wealthy? Guess you know the answer by now... Yes, one that is a smiling one and a contentment in life :)
