Richness is not related to money, it's related to finance intelligence. If you're in debt, making more money is not the solution, but managing well what you have. More money will act like a spotlight, showing your big mistakes even more clearly.
Think about it: if we divided all the wealth in the world equally for everybody, don't you think the situation would back to be the same it is today in 2 or 3 years?
Read financial intelligence books to learn more, and use your critical thinking. I advise books like Rich dad poor dad, and The Zurich Axioms. Don't buy those books, you can find them for free in a public library.
