Updated on June 15, 2013

Make quick money

How do you get rich

There are five reasons why you are still poor and have not reached your goal of being rich or even close to it. Playing the lottery and looking for a get rich quick way will not help, but realizing what is keeping you poor will help put you in the right direction towards a more successful future. Whether you realize it now or later, you are poor because of the choices you made in life.

Still in denial? That’s alright. Eventually, you will realize why you are still poor. So how do you get rich? The truth is- no one will hand you a million dollars or hand you free money in this world…..unless you are the luckiest person in the world. You have to earn success, work to make the money happen, and put yourself in the right direction. That means change the reasons that are making you poor.

Being poor, by no means, is an inherited trait. This is important to understand if you think that this is your fate. It does not have to be. There are five main reasons that you are still poor and they can be changed by only you. As you read each reason on how to make money, think how each one applies to you, and you will start to realize that you, not everyone else, is making you poor:

5. Who you know- “Birds of a feather, flock together”

In order to become successful, you need to surround yourself with individuals that are successful. The reasoning behind this- successful people already know what it took to reach their own success. The information that they possess is priceless and invaluable for your future. If you are unsure where to start, a successful person can help you by either giving you direction or introducing you to the right people.

This does not mean that you should stop associating with the people you love or know. It means that you need to expand your circle of associates to include individuals who possess success in their lives. Associating with successful people could open the doors of opportunity, not only for you, but for the people you know as well. Success comes when opportunity exists. The more successful people that you include in your life, the more opportunities you have to make more money.

Being around individuals that offer value to you can help you realize the potential you have of becoming just as successful as they are. Whether it is the value of their knowledge, their associates, or their resources, successful people have more to offer than a person that accepts being poor and is not willing to take the initiative that a successful person has.

4. What you have- “Living within your means”

You work hard for your money, only to find yourself without any. You live paycheck to paycheck, without a dime to spare. However, you always find a way to buy new shoes, new clothes, or lease a car? Still wondering why you are living paycheck to paycheck? Take a look at how spend your hard earned money.

Successful people learn how to keep money in their pockets. They learn to live within their means and have money to spare. They also know how to manage their money. If you are spending more than you make, you need to evaluate your finances to fit your budget. When you realize how much of your money is spend on items that you cannot afford, you will realize how much money you can save as well.

Once you start to save money, you can eventually learn how to multiply it. This is where the successful associates you found come into play. They can help direct you to the right investments and financial experts that can help you secure a brighter financial future. Wouldn’t it be nice to finally have some money in your pocket?

3. What you do- “Actions speak louder than words”

If you are living paycheck to paycheck, then you are also looking for ways to keep yourself above water, without looking at the future. Bills need to be paid and daily expenses are making you poor. Is this all that is making you poor?

Most individuals that are poor are looking at the present situation, trying to survive the without any thought of what the future will be. You have many dreams like wanting to go back to school or open your own business, but you think it is money that you don’t have to spare. So, you end up spending the money on an entertainment system instead. Just because you think the money should be spent on something you want right now.

Instant gratification makes you feel like your money was spent well, but in reality, the money was spent poorly without consideration for the future. You found instant gratification, but did not invest for the future. Synchronizing you thought with your future will help you synchronize your actions to allow for better choices of using your money. This way, you allow your dreams to become reality, instead of prevent you from reaching success.

2. What you want- “Actions versus dreams”

So you have dreams, but never acted on any of them. You have talent, but set it aside for now. You dream of doing what you always wanted to do, but feel like you are stuck in your current situation forever. You eventually give up on your dreams and think that they are only dreams that do not mean much. Even though you have the ability to become successful, you choose to stay in your current position.

Are you spending more time trying to find a get rich quick method, instead of investing that same amount of time into your talents and abilities? If you are poor because you failed to invest in your talents, then you are the reason why your dreams never reached reality. Many people forget the potential for success they could have with what they already have in front of them.

A dream can easily become reality if you believe in yourself. If you always dreamed of opening your own business, or going to college, or investing in stocks, then do it. Start the process of making yourself successful. Many people forget the potential for making money with their own talents and abilities in this world.

The question is- what do you want in life? Do you want to always be poor, or do you want to be successful? Dreams are there to help us see what we could be, but our actions are what can make our dreams a reality.

1. What you fear- “What’s holding you back?”

Successful people took a chance and brought their dreams to reality. This is why they became successful. Whereas, poor people never take the chance because the fear of losing everything stays on their mind. So excuses are made for giving up on a dream and themselves before they could reach their full potential of success.

A poor will give up quicker than a successful person, making up excuses for their lack of trying. The truth is- fear prevents you from reaching the success you could achieve. How many times have you said, “I cannot go to college because I have to support my family, or I was not born with a silver spoon in my mouth.” How many times have you blamed everyone else for you being poor, instead of looking at your lack of trying to better yourself?

The truth is that you do not believe in yourself. This is the main reason that you have not reached success. In order to make money, you have to believe in you and take the step towards becoming successful. The other four reasons cannot translate into success without your belief in yourself of what you are capable of achieving.

      This is such an inspiring hub. Sometimes you do get setbacks especially if you put your trust in the wrong people. But as you say, 'a dream can easily become reality if you believe in yourself.' Stand up and try again. Many wealthy people failed a few times before they became successful.

      Words to live by "Too many people spend money they don't have to buy things they don't want to impress people they don't like." I love it!
