Millionaire cleans street to set example

Most of us dream of being millionaires so we wouldn’t have to go work anymore, but Yu Youzhen has chosen to work in spite of being a millionaire.

Yu Youzhen was a simple farmer but worked her way up the financial ladder by buying apartments that she rented. After losing the apartments due to government redevelopment of land, she was compensated financially and thus became a millionaire. However, she decided not to change her lifestyle, which meant she continued to work in sanitation in order to set a good eample for her children. Therefore, she wakes up at 3 am  and sweeps two miles of road, six days a week. But what motivates her to do this when she has money? I know most of us would gladly spend the day sleeping late and enjoying the money. Well, her motivation is simple. According to Huffington post , Youzhen said that “Work is not just about the salary, it makes one focused. Laziness gives rise to all sorts of bad habits.” As an example, her fellow villagers that were compensated by the government chose to spend their money on drugs and gambling.

What would you do if you became a millionaire?
