How to Get Rich Today
By Steve Gillman
So you want to know how to become rich, and you want it to
happen today? Well, you could buy lottery tickets, or find a
casino and try your hand at the roulette wheel. You might get
lucky. The odds are against you, of course, so is there a better
How about thinking about what it means to BE rich. Consider
for a moment that you are sitting there with a fantastic machine
in front of you. Yes, I mean the computer. It can entertain you,
educate you, employ you and more. Now think back two hundred
years ago, when the richest people in the world didn't have access
to a computer, or a television, or a car, or a refrigerator,
or modern medicines.
Consider how many millions of people TODAY would eagerly trade
places with you. Even if you consider yourself poor, there are
others who would consider you rich by comparison, right? "Rich"
is relative, isn't it? And while others imagine how much better
their lives would be if they had as much as you, you imagine
a life made better by even more wealth.
It is true that life can be improved by money. Anyone who
tells you differently is lying or has a real lack of imagination.
But long before you get rich according to whatever standard or
goal you have, you can get rich by living differently. You can
learn how to get rich by enjoying the real wealth that you already
have. You may not enjoy future wealth in any case, if you don't
learn how to first.
Start appreciating what you have, and you WILL be richer.
Who is richer, a man with a lot of money and things who is alternately
stressed and bored, or a man who is enjoying all the good things
he has, however few they may be? Plan for the future, to make
more money, but get rich today by living in a state of gratitude
for what you already have.
Get Rich Today - Part Two
Money is a blessing, as well as an incredible and fascinating
invention. It is the distilled essence of all the worldly things
you might want or need. Why not make more of it? Here are some
simple reminders of things you already know about how to get
1. Start planning to make more money. Pick a way (there are
many) and work it. Try another way if you fail, but don't stop
trying. Fast or slow - you can get rich. Don't just think about
getting rich. Start putting your goals in writing, and taking
the steps necessary.
2. Learn what is really important to you. I have watched more
than one person spend what could have been a wealth-building
investment on things that really weren't important to them. Self
control doesn't mean self-denial. It means doing what you REALLY
want for the long term.
3. Learn how to manage money. Watch those "Where Are
They Now" programs, and you'll quickly see that it is easier
to lose millions than to make them. How many famous people have
blown through their money in just a few years? 1,893. Okay, who
knows, but the lesson is clear: You have to understand how to
manage money if you want to get rich and stay rich. Start educating
By the way, you can find a collection of interviews
with people making money on another website I have, and they
are not wealthy people, but people enjoying how they make a living.
Learn to enjoy what you have, and put a plan in place to have
more - this is how to be richer today.
