How to get money

You are only as good as what you give. This is not an opinion, but a fact. What you give is what you receive, and the money you make comes from what you invested. People make money daily, even hourly. Yet, you are still waiting for your big chance to hit it big. Why?

What are you waiting for? Why not make money find your success today? If you are preventing yourself from your success, then why are you complaining about it? Take a moment and think about the next few comments and see if any apply to you:

1. I will try in a few months, year, etc.
2. There is no money to make in my area of interest
3. No one believes in me so I guess I don’t have talent

If any or all of the comments apply to you, then you are holding yourself back in life. Making excuses for not succeeding will not make you successful. Finding people to blame will not make you feel any better either. Eventually, you run out of people to blame and excuses. Then what are you left with? A dream lost, a talent undiscovered, and a lot of regret for not following your dreams. So, what are you waiting for? Make money and find your success.

Fortunately, this can be fixed. There are many ways to correct what is not working right now. There are many ways to increase your wealth today and have everything you ever wished for. I created a list of guaranteed ways to make you wealthy and make you happy.


How to earn money

One of the most important assets in your life is your talent. What are you good at? What do you enjoy doing the most in your life?

Society places a premium on individual talents, because today’s economy strives off the knowledge, creativity, innovation and talents an individual has to offer. The important part of this statement is ‘offer.’ What do you have to offer society? If you keep your talents to yourself, the money will never be made. No one can help you make money and find your success if you keep your talent hidden. No one can help you develop your talent if they do not know that you have it.

An example of a talent is the ability to draw. If you like to draw, have you entered any contests yet? No? What are you waiting for? Talent is everywhere. Talent can be in the form of giving good advice, cooking, decorating, managing money….The list goes on and on….too many to list. Everyone is good at something. It is a matter of getting in touch with your talented side and make money off of what you love to do.

Everyone possesses talent, but only a few develop their talent into a profitable success. If you can draw a picture, check out the local contests available in your community. Submit a picture to an online contest for a prize. Apply for a job that involves artistic talent or apply to a local art school. There are many outlets that can create opportunity for you to make plenty of money. Let society know what your talent is. Do not leave it a secret.

Who you know

Possessing talent is half of the recipe for success. One-fourth of the recipe involves finding the right people to monetize your talent. This could be the business downtown, a contest, or your friends. A person who possesses the knowledge and resources necessary for your success could help formalize a strategy and process to create a sequence of actions that would lead to your success. Never underestimate the power of networking.

There are many agencies and individuals seeking talented individuals like you. Even if you have to search on the internet or ask people you know, they do exist in society. There are many areas and interests in this world. There are many recruiters and businesses that are looking for people that are talented like you. However, they cannot discover you if you are not searching. You have to find the resources and the people that are looking for you.

Expanding your circle of friends and people you know to include people that can help you succeed, increases the likelihood that you will capitalize on your talents quicker. Businesses strive from the people they employee and the products they create. As the talents of employees develop, so does the business. Finding the right people is difficult if they never want to be found. However, if they take a chance, this could be the chance you wanted to make more money. What are you waiting for?

Hard work

You are responsible for your own success. You are held accountable for your own future. No one else is responsible for your own success. The elements that determine success are based on the steps to achieve the goal. Strategizing the plan is important to creating a direction to reach it. The work invested determines the outcome of your success. The time spent to develop you talent and networking will provide insight into what you should expect will be you revenue.

Persistence and hard work yield success. No one said it would be easy. With any area of interest, talented individuals are acknowledged for this skill. However, uniqueness and creativity separate each person and makes them more attractive to a potential investor. What will put you at the top of the competition is the hard work that you do.
Remember that talent is only half of the recipe. It’s up to you to add the rest of the ingredients.


Keep my talents hidden

If you are preventing the world from knowing your talent, how will society benefit from your greatness? There are a few individuals in society that are either embarrassed to admit their talent or feel that no one could benefit from it. Unfortunately, many go a lifetime without knowing they wasted what could have made them successful.

There are billions of people in this world that need you! This is a true statement.
Society is filled with talented people. Everyone possesses a talent that can help another develop their own, or succeed. This, in turn, could create a profitable future for you. There are many ways to make money in this world, so why not donate your talents to making society better? It is a matter of finding the area that you are good at and making a contribution to your future and society's. Once you discover this and realize that you have the ability to create a successful future, maybe you will see what I see….a bright future for everyone.
