#55. How To Get Rich Quick

There’s so much information out there about how to get rich quick. A quick google search of ‘how to get rich quick’ will bring up thousands of articles, videos, and schemes, all promising that if you just follow their methods then you too will be able to get rich quick.

There’s also countless numbers of scams, all preying on the allure of getting rich as quick as possible with the least effort. Everyone wants to be rich, and most people don’t really want to put much effort in. But really? Getting rich quick? There’s no tried and true method for it.

You could try playing the lottery, but you’ve got more chance of being hit by lightning than actually winning. You’d probably end up with more money if you invested that £1 a week instead, but of course that takes time, and self-control.

Personally, I don’t believe there’s any real way to get rich quick. It does happen, to some people. But I believe that it tends to be a combination of the right ideas, the right timing, the right set of circumstances, a lot of hard work, and quite probably a lot of good fortune. There’s no specific magic formula.

Then again, maybe I’m speaking from the slightly jaded perspective of someone who hasn’t managed to ‘get rich quick.’ I work hard, most of the time, and probably spend more money than I should on things that I enjoy.

Maybe one day I will get rich, but I highly doubt it will be overnight. It will probably take me months, years, or decades of hard work. Maybe I’ll never be rich. And just maybe, that’s okay, so long as I have a roof over my head, clothes on my back, and food at my table.
