Get Rich Quick!
Do you want to know how to get rich quick? It’s simple. There are a number of ways, but we’ve done the research for you, so that you can stop trawling the internet and clicking on popups that claim to have the answer. So, without further prolonging your new-found substantial wealth, here is our shortlist of the top three ways to make some quick cash!
1. Win the Lottery.
The odds are stacked against you. You will still have all of the problems you had before you were rich. You will not have experienced any great personal development. BUT, in the off chance you do win, you’ll be totally rich. And it will have happened really, really, quickly. That’s why we’ve listed this method as our number one way to get rich quick.
2. Stage an Injury and Sue for Compensation.
Your friends and family will be embarrassed to associate with you, and society will shun you for your immoral get-rich-quick methods, but oh, the riches. You’ll take some large multi-national corporation and squeeze them so hard with the help of your shady legal team that they’ll be begging you to settle. You’ll have enough money to buy new friends, and even a new family if they take too long to come around.
3. Knock Over a Casino with 10 of Your Best Friends.
You wouldn’t be the first one to try it, but at least you know that it can be done. George Clooney (as Danny Ocean) has already mapped out the plan for you. Not only will you steal more money than you can jump over, but you’ll also be part of a loving and caring criminal brotherhood (or sisterhood). Stealing from the sickeningly wealthy and getting off scot-free? If you can think of a downside to all of that, we’d love to hear it.
Other Less-Exciting and Longer Methods to Make Money.
Perhaps you’ve got something against making money, and/or you prefer to grind it out? Just for you, we’ve compiled a supplementary list of ways to get rich quick. However, these methods may not be as quick as you’d hoped. They may not bring you the sort of fortune that would make you traditionally wealthy either. So what is the appeal? Well, it’s got a little bit to do with that old theory you’ve heard before about money and happiness. It’s also got something to do with journeys and destinations. Without giving away too much, here is our list of the 3 ways to get rich quick, a little less quickly:
1. Make Your Passion Your Purpose.
Find something you love to do and use it to enrich your life, and the lives of others. You’ll be giving yourself the best chance at success simply by applying yourself in an area you are passionate about. Turning your passion into your purpose will motivate you to strive for success, and money will start to take a back seat to the sense of purpose you have created for yourself. The gratitude that you experience as a result of helping others will continue to drive your success, AND be a measure of your success at the same time. And thats why purpose is the currency that buys happiness, not money.
2. Map Out A Plan.
If you already have a plan, you’re giving yourself a massive edge of everyone who doesn’t. Being specific in defining your road to success is imperative. This will help you to track your progress with measurable and time-based short term goals. If you’re familiar with SMART goals, then you know exactly what we’re on about. Your goals don’t all have to be financial ones, but sometimes it can be helpful. Less about money, and more about numbers – they can be a handy measure of success because they’re specific. So, if you haven’t already done so, take some time to create a visual representation of your road to success.
3. Commit to the Journey.
Make a plan and follow it. But if it doesn’t return the result you’re looking for, review it. Your plan might grow and develop, but don’t change your goal simply because it is seemingly difficult to reach. If it weren’t difficult, it wouldn’t be worth attaining. It’s a simple matter of supply and demand. The ‘good life’ is in such high demand because it is in short supply, meaning that it is difficult to attain. By committing to your journey towards success, you are making a promise to yourself… Whatever the circumstances, no matter how trying it becomes, you will adapt. Your failures/mistakes will become valuable lessons. Your journey towards success will be inspiring and motivating in itself. And here is where we finish with cliche number two: It’s more about the journey than the destination. If you believe this, you will be successful every single day that you are pursuing your goals.
Incase you didn’t pick up on the sarcastic tone at the beginning of this article, stop trying to get rich quick! It won’t bring you happiness, and you won’t add value to the lives of those around you. Don’t burn people to get ahead, don’t put yourself ahead of everyone else’s needs. Just find something you love to do, and do it. Not for money, but to enrich lives, including your own. It’s all part of the happiness exchange.
