Here are five ways to be rich:
1. Be born in a rich family
2. Marry a Rich person
3. Win the Lotto
4. Wait for your rich uncle to die
5. Earn it yourself
By now, you will probably know if you were born into a rich family or not. If you were not born into a rich family, my guess is that it’s already too late for that to happen in your life. Don’t despair, you are in the majority of people in this world, in this regard. The majority of people in the world today, were not born into rich families. Does this, however, mean they have no hope of becoming rich? Yes, if they choose not to be rich. You’re wondering why I said this. Richard Branson, the popular business magnate, Brian Tracy, Jim Rohn, Bill Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, and others too numerous to number, all have stories of lowly beginnings. Well, there are other ways to be rich.
Marry a Rich Person. If you’re married, by now, you should know if your spouse is rich or not. If you have a rich spouse, then you have nothing to worry about as far as finance goes. Truth is, most rich people are already spoken for, and the ones that are not, already have their eyes on someone else (which is not likely to be you). But, If you do find one, let me know.
Win the Lotto. Your next option is to win the lotto. That is, assuming you are one of those who play it. Now consider how many people play the lotto each week. That is those who are willing to spend their money, no matter how small, religiously every twice a week!!! You need to ask yourself what number you may be, out of the millions of people who put their money in to play. How many of your friends, family, colleagues, associates, even of your enemies that you know, have won the lotto? What is the probability of your ever winning enough to become as rich as you would like? Someone said "the chances of one winning the lotto is like experiencing a lightening shock twice in your lifetime".
Another option is to wait for your “rich uncle" to die. The good news is, that "uncle" will die one day. The bad news is, you don’t know when!! The funny thing is, those who are dying are those who are not quite “rich”. The annoying thing is, a lot of “rich uncles” leave their riches to their pet cat or dog. The generous ones might even leave it to some distant relatives you’ve never even heard of. The fact of the matter is that “rich uncles” just don’t exist.
The only viable option available then would be to earn it yourself. Now, you’re probably wondering what I’m talking about. You already work very hard on your regular 9-5 job like every other person!!! That’s not bad, and it’s one option, but it’s been proved that hard work alone has never made anyone rich and job security is a thing of the past. Besides lots of people work very hard, and are not rich. What are you saying, Yinka? Well, do you know about the power of leveraging? What on earth is leveraging?
