Get Rich Doing What Others Won’t
Tired of your having to rush each morning to your nine-to-five jobs? Are you getting weary of having to receive orders from your supervisor?
It seems that a lot of people are caught up in these situations. There are some people who hate their superiors, and there are also those who even hate their jobs! And yet they would force themselves to endure this grueling routine because of their financial needs, their desire to be financially secure in the future.
Who wouldn’t want to have their own businesses and be in charge? Who wouldn’t want to be free from being financially dependent on other people (like your boss)? I am sure it is the desire of almost all people to be rich, or at least have the money to live their lives in style. Most people would choose the easier way out to achieving this, such as playing the lottery or engaging in illegal activities (such as robbery or kidnapping). Others would opt for the “responsible” thing to do: be employed and set aside a part of what they earn so that they can, in the future, buy a house or a car, take a vacation, or live comfortably when they retire.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t work for everyone. What are the odds of a person to win a lottery? Very minimal! In addition, getting involved in a criminal act is not only against the law, it is also morally wrong. On the other hand, those people who work until they reach the age of 60 or 65 may find that they have barely saved enough to enjoy their retirement years.
While it doesn’t work for everyone, there are still the “lucky ones” who manage to earn 6 to 7 figures a month with a minimum effort.
Perhaps you are wondering, “How do they do that?”
So, what does one really have to do to get rich? The answer is simple: do what the others won’t (or don’t):
Short-term, not long-term. Clearly defined objectives would give you proper focus and the motivation that you need, which will give you a better chance of achieving them your goals. What do you aim for? Your first million? Write it down along with the specific time frame as to when you will achieve it.
What most people do not know is that having a short-term goal is a better way to get rich than a long-term one. The “one-step-at-a-time” approach allows you to make room for realistic scenarios that would enable you to execute your gameplan more effectively, as compared with a long-term goal that is full of uncertainties. Remember: “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step!”
Consider your options. Having established your goals, determine the means as to how you are going to achieve the goals that you have set up. Identify the opportunities as well as the tools available to you, and consider their possible returns on your investment.
A helpful hint here is to diversify. Broaden your horizons and branch out, so that it would be easy for you to recover whenever one of your ventures does not work out. Also, play it safe. A steady income (a full-time job, maybe) would serve as your security or fall back as you get involved with your other (part-time) projects.
Learn to take risks. This is perhaps what most of the successful people in the business world are good at, that others are not doing. I am not saying that you have to jump right away at every opportunity that is offered to you. Learn to take risks, but they should be CALCULATED risks. Listen to people who can provide you with the right information, but also learn to listen to your intuition.
These may be helpful hints on how to get rich, but in the final analysis, the improvement of the quality of your life depends on you – you will make the decisions on what actions to take. Try to adhere to the suggestions mentioned above: do what the others won’t
