How to Make Lots More Money

Some people are in the dark when it comes to how to get rich. Fortunately Success leaves clues. You would always do well to emulate certain people who you believe are successful. Remember that there truly is no monopoly to riches. One scholar once said that given the resources and capabilities everyone has, everyone could be a millionaire!

You heard that right! Everyone! That includes you and me and everyone on the planet. Would you believe that right now, 90% of the world’s riches lay in residence with only 10% of the human population? That means there is a huge chunk of wealth that can be shared around if only we knew how to.

Here are a few guidelines on how to get rich. It is not a pipe dream! With a little hard work, you too could get your share of the pie!


Before you start the journey to ‘richness,’ focus first on your priorities, goals and values. Ask yourself, “Why do I want to be rich? What should I gain from this? What are the most important things in my life? What are the values I want to retain while I do so?”

This is very important because the drive to riches can sometimes make you blind to the things that are important to you: family, future, inner peace, etc. If you know your priorities, you will be more focused to gain riches for a higher purpose. Getting rich, then, become more meaningful, unlike some people who worked to become rich only to find out that it didn’t make them happy.

3. Eliminate clutter.

Remove distractions. Remember that focus is terribly important when working to build wealth. The road to success is filled with many roadblocks. If your life is cluttered, you find yourself wasting time and effort trying to straighten your ship. After you set your priorities straight, clean up everything that distracts you from reaching your goals.

4. Dream the Impossible but Set Realistic Goals.

Dreaming isn’t bad. Everyone has to look to the moon to break away from the commonness of the mundane. Nothing special has been accomplished by those that do not dream. However, what if you start dreaming things that are preposterous? That would spell trouble. You might then revert to just being realistic and doubtful.

But if you limit yourself with self-doubt, and self-limiting assumptions, you will never be able to break past what you deem impossible. If you reach too far out into the sky without working towards your goal, you will find yourself clinging on to the impossible dream.

The secret here is to dream the impossible but work on accomplishing these dreams one realistic goal after another.

Everybody wants to be rich quick, to be a millionaire overnight. But things don’t work that way. If you want to be really rich, start with easily attainable goals and climb up the ladder as time progresses.

For example, you could dream of having a beautiful house and lot with a five matching luxury vehicles. It may seem unrealistic at first, so the first thing you do is start with easily attainable goals to reach that dream. Say, focus first on making more money than you spend. Then set the goal of a certain amount. When you accomplish this set your goals higher and higher until ultimately you reach you dream.

No one hits a target he can't see. You should define your goals and set clear, achievable results. Know what "success" looks like! Have measurable, tangible evidence of growth and accomplishment.

5. Don’t Look Back.

Some people start on the right track but turn back the path of progress they tread because of hardships, discouragement, or plain procrastination. But not you! You’re headed toward your goal right! So step right up, march on by, and don’t look back!

6. Put in more than you take out.

You will never get rich if you spend more that you earn. Make a spending plan to make sure the difference between your income and your expenditure is wide.

8. Patience

Be patient when trudging the hard road of wealth. Overnight success stories are far and few between, but success stories that grow over time and toil have a greater chance of happening.

10. Give it away. You can't take your riches with you when you die. Money only supplements a happy life here on earth. Make sure you contribute to charities that will use it to make the world a better, richer place. And leave some for your heir to enjoy. Give, enjoy, and pass it on. Your children will thank you!
