How To Go From Rags To Riches

how to go from rags to riches

Every individual came into existence in this Universe with nothing more than their baby suits. Some were born to wealth, others in the middle class and those in poverty. Life has it up and down swings, for one can be rich today and poor tomorrow or vice versa.

Those who are already wealthy have the capacity to double or triple their riches into a considerable sum, plus those of the middle class can advance up the ladder to riches and also the lower class can leave their rags behind and dress in splendors. Nothing can stop either group from accumulating and basking in wealth unless they do not possess the desire or interest.

The image of poverty is not pretty and no one wants to wallow in it, many will just settle for a comfortable place to sleep and three meals a day, but there are others who are driven by the desire to become rich and will not accept anything else in life, for such persons it is a war to fulfill their personal obligations. Simple if a man does not want anything, he simply does not want it.

The Poor Man

The homeless man sleep wherever is available in the Town Park, on a bench or on the grass is just fine, with the sky, sun, stars, clouds, and moon above. He has plenty of nothing and it is alright with him. He is a tall man and shows weakness with a face that showed a lifetime, as he limps on an injured right leg, his exhaustion shows weariness from endlessly wandering from place to place in his search for his daily bread. Hunger makes him feel pain in the midsection of his body and so he extends an outstretched hand to those pasting on the street, hoping to get even a penny from a kind soul. People ignore him as they go about their daily business. His appearance is a dreadful sight to look at for his moth-eaten shirt was torn from the front and covered with mud, a part of his ragged pants had one foot missing above the right knee, addition to that there was only one shoe on his left, along with all these maladies he smelled horrible due to the bad stench that filled the air with age-old sweat. With weary eyes, he observes those around him who seem to have everything that he lacks. His poverty is like the darkness at night with rain and sadness, it is like an infectious disease had emerged and robbed the once upstanding gentleman, who was born to a wealthy family to the pit of destruction.

"Poverty has no plan, no dreams, no goal, no desire, no hope, not a wish for progress or any desire to be fulfilled. To arrive at the dreaded status of poverty one just need to sleep, eat, play, dream and in short order, it comes upon anyone like a thief in the night. Simply do nothing but resemble a stone or a person who just watch time goes by. It does not care about age, gender, environment, background, normal or handicapped."

  If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it; blame yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches; for the Creator, there is no poverty.” - Rainer Maria Rilke

The Rich Man

Dressed in a fine Italian tailored black suit, matched with a cotton white shirt which decked a silk tie, on his feet here was shiny Oxford black shoes. The man with the handsome feature of a well-sculptured body, who seem to spend days lifting irons in the gym. This proud man with his magnificent, well-trimmed and groomed black hair and his straight nose have arrived from a poor humble family from a small cottage. He never had the opportunity to attend college and at 19 he had to fend for himself due to family difficulties. Time has passed, now the man at the age of 30 inspected his great house, which was covered with magnificent furniture include everything that anyone could imagine. At the far right stood his butler who waited for orders from the great man. If the master said jump the butler was sure to obey since a fortune of eight Billion does not grow on trees. The house was a beautiful prison with high walls, tall front gate, guarded by a ground man who supervised the six vicious German Shepherds, which served as watchdogs, it seemed like a fortress and it was just the kind of house the rich would purchase. Lavish parties were thrown from time to time with the best of the social classes, who partake in the eating of food from the rich man’s table. Life is grand and it surely couldn’t get any grander for his achievement was a paradise on earth.

The starting point of all wealth creation is the desire to be, to attain, a driving desire to have and to own. Riches need plans, dreams, goals, desires, hope, and a wish for progress towards its attainment. Work with a goal in mind and strive to achieve them and like a miracle, the treasure of heaven will be poured down. However, the sums or the amount of money is unimportant, only the craving, the wants, the must achieve and acquire are the first major feeling that must be in the heart of any man who wishes to move from position A to position B.

There are countless stories of persons who have captured wealth on the road from Rags to Riches.  Their journey was not a simple one unless they were fortunate to strike it rich from the winning of a lotto ticket.  However, the purchase of a lotto ticket is not a bad idea since one must utilize all that is available at one disposal to attain the goal which is money that one strives for. Now let us examine the fundamental way a person can move from the position of nothing to the position of riches. 

“Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that.” -  Norman Vincent Peale

The Steps to Wealth

The same mental application that has been passed down from ancient time to present day which is belief. Truly believe that one can accumulate or possess wealth, which is the first order. If one does not possess such then one needs to start changing one mindset which is “I am going to be rich and nothing will stop me.” This mindset is like a bullet placed in the barrel of a gun and once the trigger is released the bullet travels forward and hit its target. The biggest mistake is to accept the concept that achieving wealth is impossible. Deciding that one is going to be rich, which is a made up mind, pure and simple.

A person with "the wrong mindset" won't get out of poverty even if you "give them everything in the world. They’ll work their way right back down to the bottom," - Ben Carson, the United State, Housing and Urban Development Secretary.

Watch your speech, pay attention to the words that travel from one mouth. Never use words such as, “It can’t be done, it is impossible, I am no use, life is hard, my suffering is so great, etc.  Negative speech from the mouth allows us to react incorrectly and also destroy others who listen to the report from one mouth. The listeners need to protect themselves and be careful who one associate with. Simple if one wishes to be rich one need to watch what one says and remove the language of poverty from one mouth plus remove certain persons who dwell on such utterances. 

“The tongue can speak words that bring life or death. Those who love to talk must be ready to accept what it brings.” – Proverbs 18:21

No matter what you are doing today, one should figure out ways and means to earn more money. Wither you are presently employed or not, one should figure out what other jobs that they do on the side. Look for an addition, steam income, such as Affiliate Marketing, Blogging, Sales and Teaching Music, whatever will add more income to one wealth. Now, when you have three or four steam of cash traveling toward your bank account, keep looking for more. One of the best ways is to figure out how to obtain $1 Million from 500 persons. Let's say suppose you sold goods or service at $2,000 X 500 persons = $1,000,000.00. The next order of business is to figure out how to transform those one Million dollars into two or five Million, once the goal is attained work your way toward ten Million and so forth. Focus! Focus on building your income stream at all cost. 

“Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.” - Franklin D. Roosevelt

Spending should keep under control during the building stage as you march toward your fortune. Live within one means as you lived before you attained your first Millions. If there is a sweetheart either male or female bugging you to part with your hard earned cash, just, simply get rid of them. One should decide what is more important, either building wealth or the love of your sweethearts. Remember, keep a tight ship no matter how fat your income grows and any money left sitting around should be used to work and expand in more.

 “That man is richest whose pleasures are cheapest.” - Henry David Thoreau

Your money, no matter the amount you possess it should continue to make you money, therefore, putting money in a saving account is not the very best thing, since it tends to remain still unless you continue to add to it, plus they grow cobwebs and dust. Use a saving account only to take care of your living expenses and pay bills. However, for wealth building an Investment account is more ideal. Open an Investment account with a reputable investment firm or bank, but do not leave all your money into one investment entry nor engage in any risky type of investments. Seek the service of an Investment Banker or an Adviser then follow his or her councils in order to make your wise investment decisions also seek out other traditional investments that money can be invested into with a guaranteed return.

"Finding the best person or the best organization to invest your money is one of the most important financial decisions you'll ever make." – Bill Gross
