It always surprises me how many people fall for getting rich quick schemes. I don’t get it, do they think someone found a way to make a million dollars overnight and is sharing it with the world? Why would someone do that? Isn’t it better to just keep it to himself?
I’m not saying you can’t get rich fairly quick, in five to ten years. It’s quick enough considering most people don’t get there their whole life. But most people don’t want to put in the time, they want millions of dollars right now. That’s how snake oil salesmen make millions off selling real estate on the moon or a billion likes on your facebook page in 10 minutes. People need to wake up.
Anything worth having is worth working hard for
What is your dream? What are you willing to give in order to have it? I’m willing to bet you would give anything. Do you realize that you can have it? In today’s world, there’s nothing you can’t have, all you have to do is work for it. You want to live off the music you make, you can do that. You want to be an author, you can do that as well. You want to have a billion dollar company? It can be yours. Today we have possibilities our parents couldn’t even dream of, all we have to do is work for them.
How to start?
Dream. And dream big, don’t let anyone tell you it can’t be done. Now that you have your dream, break it up into things you can do and things you can’t do. Start working towards your dream and trust that when you get to a point that you have to do something you can’t you’ll find a way to get the job done. Don’t believe me? Read ‘think and grow rich’ you will find countless stories of companies you know today. And every one of those owners didn’t know how he was going to build his dream, he just knew that he was going to do it.
Another tip I can give you is not to compete with the giants, but with yourself. Your monthly goal is to be better than you were last month.
If you knew that in the future you had everything you wanted and all you had to do is put in the work today, would you do it? I’m guessing you would. So decide that is your truth and fight for what you want, it’s the only way to get it.
