To clarify-- I bet your year-long vow won't change anything. It's a sign that something deeper needs to change. By itself the vow won't do anything. You won't increase your "ability to empathize, to care for others, and to be in a state of lovingkindness", you won't resolve any of your issues. Good luck though.

You won't be happy, dude.
You still haven't learned what you need to learn, what you needed to learn when you were young. If you don't change, you will spend a large portion of the rest of your life with money and women and stuff, but you will still always feel as if something is missing. Most of your interactions with people will not be fulfilling and will cause you angst. Giving money to charity, making more money, having exclusive access to things won't help.
I'm in the same boat psychologically though I don't have the money you do, and through therapy with a world renowned psychologist I'm making some progress. It was really hard for me to go see that psychologist though.. admitting that I had flaws and there might have been something wrong with my thinking for so many years. But if you do, it's not too late; you can still change and live the rest of you life in happiness and bliss.
