Anyone can make money

Anyone can make money

by Roman on December 17, 2009

This is RULE 1 from a set of rules about how to get rich.

The best property of money is that it can be made by anyone. Money doesn’t ask the color of your skin, it doesn’t ask whether you are rich or poor, or who your parents were.

It’s possible for anyone to make money. That’s a fact.

Each and everyone of us has the same rights and opportunities to achieve as much as we want. Sure, some things are easier to achieve for some people and other things for other people but in the end the only true obstacle to making money is yourself.

If you think you can make money – you can. If you think you can’t make money – you can’t. Simple as that.

The obstacles to making money have always been in the things we believe. If you think that you can’t make money because you are poor then that’s true. If you think that it takes money to make money, then that’s also true.

There could be a million people living in poverty, who all agree that because of their “special” conditions it is impossible for them to get rich. These people may spend 10, 20, 30 or more years living poorly but all it takes to succeed and get rich is if one person out of the million disagrees with other’s and says – “I will become rich!”

Money has no feelings

Money does not know who his owner is. Money can’t hear, see or smell. Money doesn’t care what happens. Its sole purpose of life is to be saved, invested and spent.

Money does not have the ability to judge people. Money does not know whether it has been made through hard work or deceit. Money does not know if you are worthy to be its owner.

Looking at rich people has made it clear that the only common denominator for rich people is that there is no common denominator. There are rich people whose parents were billionaires and there are rich people who’s parents were beggars. There are rich people who are fat and rich people who are skinny. There are rich people who are incredibly smart yet there are rich people who are idiots.

I am certain that everyone has looked at a rich guy and thought – why him? Why not me? I’m smarter, I look better – what does he have that I don’t?

I have good news for you! Your life is just like a movie and you are the scriptwriter. You can choose what happens next!

There is a similarity that rich people have even before they become rich – they think that they have earned a chance for a better life. Poor people on the other hand think that they are not worth a change for the better. They are not brave enough to seize an opportunity when they see one.

Achieving success, making tons of money and getting rich can be difficult but it is never impossible.

Anyone can become rich

Money as such is nothing but paper with some cute design… It is just the issuer’s (the government) promise that it has a certain value and it can be used for making it easier to get what you need. It is difficult to get a new TV without an intermediary product that is universal in trading. Just imagine working somewhere and you receive your salary note it states that this month you can buy this tv and this amount of milk and so on :p

The point is that money itself should not be considered as a value – it represents value… Having a lot of money does not mean that one is rich :)

Roman May 18, 2008 at 7:57 am

OnuJack – theoretically you are right – having a lot of money does not mean that you are rich. However I will have to argue with you here – In our world having a lot of money makes you rich :twisted:
However if someone (the goverment) would say that your money can’t buy anything – then you are poor again :P

Commenting on the definition of “money” would be more accurate if one can define value. Does money have value? Do you have value, do you value money? Does money make you rich, or does value make you rich? Moreover, anyone can make money, can anyone make value? A tv is cool, does it really have value?
I don’t have those answers, I do have one more question. Are you trying to become rich, or valuable?

OnuJack May 20, 2008 at 4:15 pm

According to economical theory we are all creating value all the time :p The term GDP – look it up at Wikipedia if you don’t know what it means. In my opinion money is a tool that should not be misused (used in ways that make other people worse off in one way or another). By worse off I mean more dissatisfied with life. Of course there is the saying that one makes his own destiny – I believe in that but there is so much bull… going on because people are what I call “moneysick”. And the term GDP is just a fancy way to measure which country is better at pushing the limits of materialistic values. Is the goal of life to be rich or is it to be happy? Does money and being rich equal to happiness? I personally feel that we do everything (what ever it might be) just to be happy – why not have a happiness measure also for countries – isn’t this the whole point of life? It would be interesting to see if there is some correlation between GDP and the happiness measure and which way it would go…

Roman May 20, 2008 at 8:26 pm

OnuJack, actually there is a happiness measure for countries and you should be delighted to know that the worlds happiest country is Denmark :lol: I guess you live in the right place.

OnuJack May 21, 2008 at 1:46 pm

Yes. I see the happiness here in Denmark – if happiness means raping mother earth then it is happiness :) Consumption freaks are all over the place :p The good thing is that it can’t last forever…

Roman May 20, 2008 at 8:18 pm

:lol: I believe that money itself has no value but it gets its value from the people(that’s us) that value it. If everyone stopped valuing money it wouldn’t have any value.

Adam Primero May 21, 2008 at 10:31 am

Yea, I have to agree with both of you. We should try starting a happiness revolution. “Make Happiness now ask me how” or how about, “Got Happiness”, Vote for Happiness”
I cut this from your link Roman.
“Happiness is there for the taking in America,” Weiner writes. “You just need the willpower to find it, and enough cash.”

Thats sad. We rank 17th I thought it would be a little higher.
GDP, should be combined with “GHL” “gross happiness level”
Maybe we can get the World Governments to start monitoring that so they know if they are doing a good job. Wait, why would they do that…

OnuJack May 21, 2008 at 1:42 pm

sometimes it seems that a country is another name for a company… :p As you mentioned GHL should be connected to GDP. I say that a happiness measures should at least equal in importance compared to GDP.

Roman May 21, 2008 at 5:27 pm

Happiness is way more subjective than GDP, so I doubt that any country would start monitoring it’s happiness level any time soon!
It is also interesting to note, that Denmark is the most happy country in the world, but at the same time it has the 23rd highest suicide rate.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_suicide_rate I’ve always had the feeling that suicides are done by people who are unhappy, but who knows maybe people in Denmark are so happy, that it’s killing them :twisted:

OnuJack May 22, 2008 at 1:11 am

I would not say that happiness is subjective – it is a certain state that everyone knows and it is universal. One feels happy or one does not. What is subjective/personal is what makes one happy. As far as what I have seen in DK – people are so nurtured that they loose the ability to cope with difficulties – something bad happens and this has a big impact because (people loose their artificial balance) people are not used to unfavorable things happening to them – these things happen anyway :) I would call it ignorance.

Actually the way GDP is measured has also gotten some criticism and one can twist the numbers via manipulation of yearly accounts – even in cases where there are strict rules about such things. I am sure you have heard/read of cases where stock market companies have played around with their numbers to seem more competitive :)

Can anyone make money? Yes and no, I think.

Alot more needs to be taken into consideration than just a person’s attitude to want to make money. At some level, though, this is true.

But true poverty, at the level seen in certain African countries, and social poverty (psychological and physically abusive environments), along with short-sighted thinking and a lack of education are all huge contributor’s to one’s state of mind.

Ultimately I think it’s correct that “anyone can make money” but the rags to riches stories we like to celebrate distort the picture a bit. While it’s possible (so many things are logically possible), it doesn’t mean it’s probable.

I just wouldn’t want to simplify the question too much.

What do you think about the role of the law of attraction here?

Roman May 26, 2008 at 2:13 am

I think that the law of attraction has a vital role to play in anything we want to achieve in our lives. I believe so, because I have seen the law of attraction work on numerous occasions in my life!
If you want something bad enough you will find a way how to get it.
You cant however become rich when you live in such a poor environment that it makes you think that you can’t become rich. That’s why there are so many poor people. But all it takes is a change in you mind! This change is hard to come though!

I enjoy reading your optimistic outlook on making money and becoming rich. Anyone can make money, you just need the drive to do it.

Optimus Pips February 22, 2010 at 4:19 pm

An outlook with which I agree. Money is simply a tool; nothing more and nothing less. And depending on how you use this tool (as with all tools) will dictate your results.

Roman February 24, 2010 at 7:50 am

Yes, exactly, money is just a tool to get what you want!
