If you’re someone just fresh out of a job or having trouble making you rent, you might be surprised to hear that making money is not nearly as hard as it seems. Don’t get me wrong, it’s certainly not easy and requires a lot of hard work, but becoming a millionaire is not this impossible dream that is out of reach of anyone. All you have to do is believe that you can make a million dollars.
Here’s a general outline for how you can make a million dollars pretty easily (by which I mean a few years of working every day, but hey, you thought it was impossible so this is pretty damn easy):
1) Believe you can. You can’t make a mill;ion dollars until you get it through your head that you can do it. If you don’t believe it, even if someone gives you a million dollars, your head will think up reasons why it shouldn’t be yours. Stop that!
Your head is only so big, so if you’re thinking about ways why you can’t make a million dollars, you’re not going to be thinking of ways to make a million dollars, which is what you want. You need to think about stuff in order for it to happen.
2) Look for a need to fill Money doesn’t just come to you straight up, you actually do have to do something to get it. The good news is money comes in an often disguised form - that of other people’s problems. If you can solve someone’s problem and fill their need, then money will pretty much fall into your hands.
This is where part 1) becomes pretty relevant. If you’re the guy complaining about problems and not thinking about ways to fix other people’s, you’re gonna owe people for fixing your crap. Don’t be the whiny guy who can’t get things done. Remember, the person who does it gets paid.
3) Fill the need Once you’ve discovered a need, just shut up and start figuring out how to fix it. It’s easy to be all picky and say why you can’t do it or why it’s not your responsibility. Don’t even think or say that. Just do it. Fix the problem. Once it’s fixed, ask the person the amount they feel that was worth and that they should give you. And take the money with the assurance that you have created value for someone and the world is the better for it.
4) Repeat steps #1-3 until you have a million dollars Not that hard really
