Wealth, riches, influence, and power are the innermost desires of many individuals. And, of course, are the daily pursuit of every living being. However, the big question is; why is it only a fragment of the world’s population that attains this feat? This, we will seek to expatiate in this piece.
Recent research has it that Elon Musk, the richest man in the world, as of January 2021 reads two books daily. Likewise, his billionaire counterparts are known to read at least two books weekly. These world leaders are avid readers. Why? Success tactics and wealth secrets are embedded in books, a riddle that they have been able to uncover. This leads us to our first point; you must be addicted to books if you must become rich.
Secondly, you must have a mentor. According to Oprah Winfrey; a mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself. The reason many have failed to attain their full potential is they have no one to give them the adequate push needed. A car has the potential to move and transport anyone to his desired destination but wouldn’t move an inch if not started with the right key. Likewise, you need the right key (mentor) to assist you in your journey to undeniable success.
Consequently, with reading, having a mentor, and investing, you must set SMART GOALS. All the previous points will be ineffective without this feature. Your goals must be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time-bound. If you fail to clearly define what you want, how you want it, and when you want it, then, your goals can only be considered as mere wishes.
In conclusion, you must remain persistent. Persistency is the act of refusing to give up even in the face of trials and tribulations. Life doesn’t come easy and it will definitely prove difficult at one point or the other. You must take a conscious decision and have a determined mindset that you will not throw in the towel. All these aforementioned points are characteristics of rich people. I’ll leave you with this; if you want to be rich, study what rich people did or are doing and do the same thing and success will be yours.
