Everyone Wants, Few Will Get

Everyone wants to be rich, but the ones who take action will be

I was talking to one of my co-workers and telling him my goals and how I wanted to be wealthy and he replied with, “Yeah, doesn’t everyone?” I thought to myself, “Yeah, everyone does, but only a few will actually do what it takes.”

Do what it takes

You know, if you study how someone got to a certain place, you can then take that path and get to the same destination. So many people think that wealth is illusive and out of their reach. But really all it would take is taking the action that rich people have taken to get wealth. Now it’s going to take time, and that is what most people don’t want to wait for. They are like the child from Willy Wonka, “I want it NOW!!!”

Do what the rich do

So with that, you want to be an engineer. Then go to school for engineering and do what they have done. If you want to enter construction, do what construction workers have done before and that is what you will become. Being wealthy is nothing different. Do what they have done and you will get what they have got. Again though, most people see the end result and not all the struggle that they have went through to get where they are.

I dug ditches for this store

A friend of mine owns the general store in a small town. He is wealthy yes, and the store brings in a lot of money each month and the people in the town know that. They are jealous of him because he has all the money and they want the money. He once said, “What people don’t realize is I helped dig ditches and get this store built. They see me and want my money or hate me for having it, but I worked my butt off to get where I am today.”

Too many people just want to sit back and have riches fall on them. And the ones that do have that happen through an inheritance or winning the lottery usually aren’t ready for it. They end up back where they were financially within a short amount of time.
