Example text

If I wanted to tuck you under my wing and make you wealthy, the first thing I would need to know is: “Do you have what it takes to be wealthy? Are you determined enough? Will you work hard enough? Will you stick at it? Do you have backbone? Stamina? Guts? ” You see, if you don’t, the chances are you won’t succeed. I’m not trying to put you off. I am trying to make you see that making money is a skill that can be taught—as long as the person is ready and willing to learn and apply themselves diligently.

The plan gives you the important bit—how you are going to get there. Back to the Robinson Crusoe analogy. Once he had been shipwrecked and taken stock, he made a plan. ” And he set about building a thatched shelter on the beach, which of course got blown over in the first gale and he had to retreat inland to a cave. You see, even the best plans have to be open to adjustment. First things first. If you have a job you love and are happy, then you’ll probably want to stick with it. If it doesn’t make you enough money, you need a plan to generate income another way.

If it is like that, then you’re doing it wrong. You see, money is so freely available— and to anyone (as we looked at in Rule 1)—that you really don’t need to try that hard, or change that much. An awful lot of pretty ordinary, nice people make money—and lots of it. You can make money, enjoy your job, and sleep at night. You just have to decide that is what you’re going to do—no matter what. And then stick to it. Remember, if you are starting to lose sleep or have stopped enjoying what you do, then you need to have a serious talk with yourself.
