Just wondering if this is the way most people think...

I read a book called "The Millionaire Mind" a while back. I ran into an old college professor of mine and he saw that I was reading it and asked what it was about. I told him it was about millionaires and how they accumulated their wealth. He responded "Oh, well, everyone knows they got rich by stabbing other people in the back and stealing from everyone else." I just sat there with my mouth open trying to come up with a witty rejoinder until he moved on.

So what do you think? Anyone else read the book?

By the way, the book is about real modern-day millionaires, and found that MOST of them were good, decent, honest people who accumulated their wealth by hard work and by living below their means. That's what made my old professor's remark seem really off the wall.

I can agree that some people make money by shady business but I think in the corperate world there is always something a little shady. That doesnt mean people are stabbing people in the back right left and centre and stealing. I always hear about something going on a DH's work but thats how they get ahead and become the best.

And with self made millionares I dont even see how that could really involve any sort of stealing.

I think there are many rich people who did things the ethical way. I however do not agree than anyone is "self made". There is always someone in the corner of the other person. Whether they are helping them financially, emotionally or whatever, but to me, that makes no one self made.
