5 Ways How Not To & How To Become Rich

5 Ways How Not To Become Rich

  1. Don’t imagine or believe you can become wealthy. Consider it an impossible goal fit only for dreamers.
  2. Accept that it’s possible, but don’t decide to make it true in your own life. Focus on other things beside becoming wealthy.
  3. Decide that you will improve your financial life, but procrastinate and put off the journey. Today you’re busy or tired or whatever. Maybe you’ll start tomorrow.
  4. Fail to delay gratification and spending. Don’t worry about your budget, don’t save today so that you can invest tomorrow.
  5. Continuously operate with a short-term perspective, living day to day. Don’t try to plan your retirement or take control of your own life.

5 Ways How To Become Rich

  1. Become an entrepreneur – Economic history suggests this is the number one path to newfound riches in America. Some 74% of all self-made millionaires in the U.S., for the past 200 years have owned their own businesses.
  2. Work your way up – With the advent of stock options, it is also possible to work your way to wealth. About one in 10 of the millionaires in the U.S. worked for large corporations for many years. They worked hard, were promoted, earned stock options, participated in profit sharing plans, and held onto that money to become millionaires. The Seattle area, for example, is famous for its Microsoft millionaires who went to work in the 1970s and 1980s as secretaries and programmers. They became millionaires through stock options.
  3. Become a professional – Education pays. Ten percent of U.S. millionaires are professionals with advanced degrees, such as dentists, doctors, lawyers, architects and engineers, whose services are in demand and who charge well for what they do.
  4. Enter the sales profession – Some 5% of U.S. millionaires, one in 20, got that way by being top salespeople and sales consultants. Great salespeople may never have started a business, but they know how to sell a product or service and they get paid handsomely for doing it. Here the 80/20 rule proves true: the top 20% of salespeople earn 80% of the money.
  5. Invest well – Some millionaires invested well in the stock market, created an invention or authored some creative product or service.
