So I'm 'rich'. Honestly I feel as though my parents are going to likely set-up enough money up for me, that I'm likely going to stay rich.
What I mean is... if they buy a house in my name. Even if it's a condo. That's already a major asset.
Anyways even in University I felt confused. I did have drive/ambition but for the wrong reasons: more that I wanted to prove I was smart.
I feel confused. Truly. Even if I worked really hard in a particular job, what am I going to get in return? Money? I already have it. What's the point

You can loose the sense of entitlement. The satisfaction that you did it all on your own.
Everything I have I did on my own. I'm proud of that. Example my acquaintance "Mr. big shot" was given a job by his friend so he could move. Mr big shot was too afraid to move on his own. His friend got him an apprenticeship, taught him how to do the work, taught him the business he started, the day to day operations etc. Mr. big shots friend got sick at an younger age & passed away. He left the business to Mr big shot. Mr big shot now thinks he's the King. Not remembering he was handed everything. Especially because of the early demise of his friend. It may not matter but I laugh at him.
Prove that you can do it. It's comforting you have money for whatever you want but where's the satisfaction?0

You're not he only person from an affluent upbringing to feel this confusion but it's because your parents taught you the wrong values.
Making money and being in annually secure is important but it isn't the only aim in life. Bottom line you need to be a productive member of society in one capacity or another for your own wellbeing as well as that of society.
Secondly you aren't rich your parents are upper class but you personally don't even have a trust fund yet alone a non revocable one.
Either way if money isn't an issue for you and isn't a motivating factor to work find something else to do. CampIgn for someone and maybe set a goal of being a delegate, volunteer at an animal shelter. Do something everyday that gives your life meaning.
I have a good friend that asked a similar question at your age as she refused to work or do ANYTHING for most of her 20's living in a condo her Mom owned downtown in an expensive city. Her Mom really wasn't rich enough to justify losing the $5,500 a month in income she could have gotten renting it out so her daughter could sit on her ass. Either way she was aimless even with a nice body, guy she eventually married who convinced her to get a job she hated and she lives for him. She volunteered at an animal shelter for a while it helped but her quality of life even with a man she lived for wasn't great. He would go be productive in a high power career while she sat around waiting for him to come play on the weekends.
Your feeling lost atm but don't allow yourself to stall you'll regret it.2
