We’ve all asked ourselves “how can I get rich?” and started searching books and articles for answers. Most likely, we found “save a little money every paycheck and invest it” and how investing in stocks, bonds, and mutual funds over time can someday make you wealthy (I teach that in several of my articles as well). The question now however, is that are those the only things you can or should invest on?
To take things further, did most, if not all wealthy people earn their wealth through them alone? Well, one bestselling author and researcher who surveyed and interviewed hundreds of millionaires say they didn’t.
Some time ago I climbed Mount Pinatubo, one of the most famous volcanoes in the Philippines. It was a simple and enjoyable hike along the rivers and the canyons and the crater lake at the end was beautiful. Around the crater near the rest stop is a set of stairs, and it’s rather tiring to climb unless you exercise often. Of course, a lot of us tourists get tired there.
One of the guides, a local who is used to the mountain landscape remarked “Anak mayaman” (rich person’s offspring, or “rich kid”) in a disparaging tone. It’s a common mindset: Rich kids are weak, mean, and spoiled. I mean, that’s how they all are on TV, right?
That got me thinking. Who are those “rich kids” (or rich people) exactly? If I were to take a guess…
The son of the skilled doctor who can save your life if you contract a deadly disease or get into a horrific accident.
The daughter of the real estate developer who gives jobs to a hundred workers and builds homes for hundreds of families.
The grandchild of the school owner who runs the school where a thousand children (including yours) are studying.
The child of the grocery store owner who buys and sells food to feed hundreds of families every week.
The child of the person paying your salary.
It’s true that rich kids are born with everything handed to them, but let’s ask another question: what’s wrong with that?
To take it further, where did their wealth come from? Did it just pop up from thin air?
“Some people don’t get to succeed in life because they spend most of their energy and time being envious of those who have succeeded, instead of learning from them.” – Edmond Mbiaka
There’s an old Filipino saying “libre lang ang mangarap” and it translates to “it’s free to dream.” While it sounds nice on paper, these days it implies that while you can dream big all you want, achieving your dreams is too difficult or impossible so you should never even try. While we wish we were rich and successful, it won’t happen and we’ll have to settle for an “ordinary” life instead. If we were born poor, we’ll just have to accept it and STAY poor.
Well what if you really DO want to become successful? Well then you need to have BIG dreams in order to achieve it! It’s free to dream… and it’s also free to think, plan, and find the way to achieve those dreams!
“If you limit your choice only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that’s left is a compromise.”-Robert Fritz
Whenever you read about stocks and shares, you’ll often come across the term “voting rights.” If you’re wondering where and how you’ll use them, then you should probably join a shareholder meeting! Although every company or organization will be different, this is what you can expect.
