Overnight Success (How To Get Rich Quick)

Oh you’re here for the get rich quick scheme…good!!! I think you should really pay attention to this right now. Especially, if you are thinking of investing any kind of money towards anything.

You ready to get rich?!?!

OK LET’S GOOOOOO!!!!

Ok so first lesson on being an overnight success and getting rich super fast:

  1. You can’t
  2. It’s impossible

Alright that just about covers it…

Oh I ‘spose you wanna know why huh? Okay, fine the reason why it’s not such a good idea to invest in being an overnight success is because in the history of the world, it has never ever, ever, ever, ever, ever (should I keep going?) happened.

Sure there have been people that’ve gotten lucky and have invested in the right thing at the right time and there are even more people that have lucked out by winning big in the lottery, but I almost 100% can guarantee you those people aren’t winning now. They didn’t have a plan so they are most likely not in the same position they’re in when they first got their money.

You see, the first thing that Benjamin Graham (Warren Buffett’s mentor) says about investing or making money is that you can’t suck your thumb. And that means that you can’t have these 10, 15 year plans that you believe are gonna work just because they’re your idea. 

It doesn’t work like that. But you know what does work? Having a real plan of not getting rich, but acquiring wealth.

The real lesson that we should be learning here is about how to get wealthy and that, has been laid out in 3 simple steps by Benny G:

  1. Acquire knowledge about what you’re investing in. You want to invest in real estate? Don’t just look for a “great deal,” because sometimes you can get a great deal on a piece of junk when you could have gotten a good deal on something that’s higher quality and will retain it’s value.
  2. Get good judgement. Once you’ve acquired knowledge, then you can run experiments and have good judgment about the results. It’s not a guessing game anymore. You can now figure out what works from what doesn’t relatively easily because you’ve worked on becoming more knowledgeable.
  3. Don’t be scared. If you’ve got the knowledge and the judgement, then there’s no reason why you shouldn’t have the courage to make a correct decision.

So there ya have it. 3 simple rules to success brotein shake. They’re simple, but not easy. It takes time and that’s why it’s impossible to be an overnight success. The reality of an overnight success is that a vast majority of them spent their time creeping in the shadows and staying quiet until they were sure they had something worth showing to the public.  So if you have something that you think will make you trillions, please, for your own sake, take a long look at those 3 simple rules above.

P.S. These rules don’t just apply to getting wealthy, they also apply to relationships, your health, and many other important decisions that may affect your life path. These are ultra important because these 3 lessons alone have created billionaires. I bet you could use a little bit of that, so think about where you want to go next from here and get to making some good judgement calls. Talk soon…

That’s The Special O

I was flipping through channels at my parents house before I made my way back to Philly.

It’s fun for awhile

I mean the sheer volume of selection is almost overwhelming enough to make you want to try and watch something from every channel for a few minutes.

Which is exactly what I decided to do.

I ended up absolutely mesmerized by the strangest of things.

The station was called OSN which I thought might be a local sports network (turned out to stand for ocean state network)

Anywho, I saw something about the Olympics, but it actually turned out to be about the Special Olympics

No big deal, I’ll watch and see how the javelin goes :-p

So the unfortunate thing is that it cuts to this local community access channel interview.

The thing is that this interview was conducted my people with obvious disabilities, but sans the fancy equipment from the big productions.

It was actually something that really spoke to me.

It’s that you know, you may think you have it tough, but there is someone achieving their dream out there in spite of the obstacles they face.

The thing is that there isn’t just one someone, some dude that looks like you and has the same dreams and aspirations

There could be hundreds of thousands of someone’s that want to do exactly what you want to do.

The key is not to compete with them though.

Nope, that’s never gonna bring you happiness.

You have to be you and that is what is going to set you apart.

You see broseph, these people with disabilities are blessed in a way that we aren’t.

They don’t have the ability to outwardly hide what make them different.

The thing is they have nothing to hide so all they have is happiness.

What a gift right?

If only we could all do that.

Well, you can in my program.

In it, I teach you how to make fast decisions

Be happy with your decisions even if they didn’t have the desired effect

As well as many other life affirming activities.

You CAN enjoy life the same way the happiest people in the world can

I was reading through a few blogs in my free time a little bit ago and I came across the quote you see above. It’s very true you know. In many of the adventures you come across in this here adventure blog, you’ll find that a lot of these trips are to see amazing places, but many of the photos are solo.

You see the thing is, when you are an adventurer, you rarely are going to have a crew. You blaze a trail and others follow. It’s not often that you’ll find a crew blazing trails together because it’s so hard to find a group of people so daring as to do something so absurd as bucking the trend and thinking outside the status quo.

I get it, brotein shake. It’s hard, to not want to follow the crowd. It’s difficult to not want to do what everyone else is doing. But is that because you don’t know what to do yourself, or is it because you are too afraid to go out on your own because you’re afraid of the results?

Either way, I have the answer for you. It’s not gonna be pretty and I’m sorry it’s so simplified (I’m running out of time here), but all you have to do is stop attaching your happiness to your results.

I’ve run out of time and I wish I could tell you more, but then we’d be here all day and your butt would hurt from sitting too long from being so engaged in our conversation.

NE hoo…

Till next time
