For some reason my Adblock didn’t work today so I scrolled through my Facebook feed and saw something interesting and I need to talk about it.
There were 3–4 guys running ads on their secret about how to get rich. They were basically giving you everything most people ask for. The shortcut to a million $. You only have to watch their free video and bam, buy the lambo right after it.
One guy did the whole thing so bad I was sure he is a comedian. Turns out he isn’t. He is ‘rich‘ and you can do it too!
What a load of crap!
There is no shortcut to wealth and there sure is no quick secret to “get everything you want.” And even if there was? A looser in a Lamborghini is still a looser? Probably an even bigger one because he thinks the lambo would change anything. It doesn’t.
Going for the money instead of your own interest/passion is a bad move. You won’t have the drive and motivation to get the big money.
If you say money is the most important thing you will spend your life completely wasting your time. You will be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living that is to go on doing things you don’t like doing. There has to be something on a deeper level that excites you. Something you’d do even if there was no money involved.
That thing that you’d do for free is that one thing that gets you the wealth that you may crave. Because you are implementing the magic sauce, the secret. You are working your butt off. Hard work is the only secret there is. But people don’t want to realise that because it’s not as easy and short term.
It’s long term happiness. Not short term money.
Go for it.
