Getting rich can be achieved in three simple steps.
Step 1. Make a plan.
Step 2. Take a risk.
Step 3. Do the work.
On Step 1, making a plan involves having the end goal in mind, identifying your current state, and devising various schemes and methods on how to go to your end goal from your current state with the least costs, time, risks, and energy.
If there are no available schemes and methods, the end goal must be tweaked. Once a workable plan is achieved, and the risks, costs, time, and energy identified, one must have the courage to take the risk and the determination to do the work, for plans are a dime dozen and execution is king.
On Step 2, most workable plans will involve risks. Achieving your dream of becoming rich will not only be a test of your intelligence (primarily, in making the plan), but, more importantly, it will be a test of courage. Risks will always be involved, such as the risk of losing resources, time, and energy. One way to gain courage is to imagine the worst possible scenario happening to you and asking yourself if you can still move forward from this. If the answer is yes, then taking the risks becomes less challenging. If not, ask yourself why and what you can do to move forward. As they say, fortune favors bold.
On Step 3, getting rich will be hard. If it were easy then a majority will be rich. Getting rich involves getting your hands dirty, falling down, and rising up again. Unwavering perseverance is the essential in doing the work.
Once you become rich, you can then buy your grail watch or take your dream vacation. I took my dream vacation last May 2017. I went to New York with my wife and son, and we went to the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Times Square, and Central Park, and watched Miss Saigon on Broadway.
Miss Saigon is the most beautiful show I have watched bar none! The music was lovely, the story was engaging, and the performance was truly amazing! This was indeed the highlight of our trip!
We went also to Wall Street, Manhattan’s Chinatown, Little Italy, the United Nations Headquarters, One World Center, and various museums such as the Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Guggenheim Museum. Of the three museums, the largest is the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but I enjoyed Museum of Modern Art more, primarily because of the prominent display of the paintings of Van Gogh, Pollack and Picasso.
We also ate New York-style pizza, hotdogs, and pretzels, although they were a bit underwhelming (maybe, except for the pizza) during our seven-day trip.
In any event, New York City is still one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
