Get Rich Quick!

We see, hear, feel and smell it all the time; little adverts that will sell you ways to get rich quick. I personally have nothing against getting rich quick. As a matter of fact, I am a little envious of those who manage to pull it off! It's a very attractive thing to be able to achieve. None of us live forever, so the quicker we get rich, the better.

On the other hand, I doubt you will ever see an advertisement that says something along the lines of "High risk!" or "Get Rich Slow and Steady". Things like that don't sell. And that's the funny part! You're not supposed to pay for the ability to get rich- you're supposed to work for it. Imagine if someone told you to give them all your clothes and tell you that very soon you'll have lots of new clothes. Here are some sewing machines (you pay for those also), now get working on your new clothes.

Now getting to the bottom of it, is getting rich quickly as good as slowly? Let's clarify something here: rich is often confused with money, granted it may play a large role, but there are other factors at play here. For example, you're walking along a quiet street, and you notice a $100 bill lying on the floor. You see there is nobody around who might have dropped it, so you couldn't return it to its rightful owner (I'm making assumptions). You pick it up, and stick it in your pocket. The day before, however, you've been working extremely hard, and you've managed to finish that project and your employer pays you $100. In your pocket now are 2 bills of 100 (and some spare change, not important now); which of these is worth more? If you're still confused, think about which one will be the easiest to spend on useless junk?

Do you see my point? Getting rich quick doesn't seem like the way to go, although you would not find me complaining if it did happen to me. I'll leave you with a final thought: "If you could eat success, the best part would be preparing the meal".

We still try... have a look at My Guide to Affiliate Marketing. Maybe some of us do have the possibility of getting rich quick. Or maybe just earning some money... not even quick... just gradually getting a better financial edge... for some extra beer... or whatever...
