Many people I know talk about how they want to make more money, how they have all of these ideas for doing so, and how they want to make sure they can retire early, but I never see them doing anything about it. They do have some good ideas for building wealth, but they don’t have any money. This is because there is a huge difference between wanting to make a lot of money and actually doing it. As I get older I realize that money is out there to be made, but you have to really want to do it. If you have the drive, there should be nothing stopping you from getting what you want.
The first step in building wealth is indeed knowing if you really want it. You may think you do, but if you are not willing to put the time and effort into it, you aren’t going to get very far. There is no fast building wealth method that will make you rich overnight. You can give someone your money that says they can do it for you, but you might as well forget about seeing a return. They are making money from your lack of drive and your wish to get rich quick.
Building wealth means finding out what you can do, and what you can do to make money with the skills that you have. You may be good with numbers, or you may have a talent. It doesn’t matter what it is as long as you can think of a way to make it profitable. Building wealth does mean that you have to have somewhere to start, but everyone has a chance. You may even get more than one chance, but if you let them pass you by, they aren’t going to do any good.
Another important aspect of building wealth is to know what to do when the money does start to come in. You can buy some things, but if you spend it as fast as you make it you aren’t going to have anything to show for all of your hard work. Building wealth means saving as much as you can, and it also means living like you don’t have much money. Many millionaires live in houses that are adequate but not flashy, and you would never know they had that much money. That’s why they have it!
