Lifestyle is about how you live, who you are and what you make of yourself. It’s also about how you present yourself, and taking advantage of opportunities that present themselves to you in the best possible way. How do you emulate the lifestyles of the rich and famous?
The simple fact is that money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a lifestyle that others cannot afford. What sets the rich and famous apart from others? Sometimes, wealth and fame breeds a desire for power. This is not a trait in someone that always comes across well. Arrogance can become the driving force.
Take the various World Leaders: they inspire us with the way they dress, and the way they speak. They are powerful people – often very rich people, too – who know how to present themselves, and how to enjoy the lifestyle. The President of the United States, Donald Trump, is an example – a well-dressed man who is unafraid to lead a lifestyle that he enjoys, despite his important place in the world.
The Lifestyles of Famous People
Famous people in different areas of the arts, politics and other areas tend to follow the style that is appropriate. The ‘rock star’ look is typical; picture, for example, Bono – singer with U2 – with his trademark leather and sunglasses. Politicians go for either smart-casual or full-on smart suit. TV stars tend to dress for the occasion, and are among the most famous people on the world.
Perhaps, however, the ‘style leaders’ in terms of various lifestyles of millionaires and famous people are those who have made their money in business. It takes a certain type of person to achieve the very top rung of the ladder when it comes to business, and there are many about. Visit Monte Carlo, for example, and the majority of super-yachts – luxury boats of the highest order – moored in the marina are owned by the world’s leading businessmen.
Sports Stars and Lifestyle
Sports stars are a great influence on our lifestyle and how we behave. Some of the highest-paid people in the world are sports stars. Currently, it is believed the highest earner in the world is the footballer, Lionel Messi. A salary of $92million – plus endorsements that bring that up to a year’s earnings of $127 million – puts him ahead of fellow footballer Cristiano Ronaldo.
With that sort of money to hand, one can afford to finance whatever lifestyle you choose. Villas in exotic places, luxury cars, yachts and aeroplanes, all come with the lifestyle that is achieved by the very top sports stars in the world.
Yet, most of us do not have the money to buy such luxuries. We can, however, still lead a lifestyle that is enjoyable, invigorating and inspiring. We can still go where we want to, and lead lives that are at once fulfilling, and also peaceful and stress-free. We do it by being who we want to be, and by realising that a wonderful lifestyle is not just about money.
