Recently I read of the trial of some suspects who were being tried in court on charges of false importation of ‘Black Gold’ into a certain country.
Then I began thinking, what makes the mad and sudden craze for wealth, people want profit now, Value is no longer the watch word. Is this the right way to go? No I protest.
I still choose the moral high ground which is based on the principle that ‘The height that great men reached was not attained by sudden flight, but by constant toiling day and night’.
Everyone wants to be successful and wealthy beyond their wildest dreams, but there is a right and proper way to success and there is an emergency way to success.
People succeed, but their success comes at a cost, Lives are destroyed, their health is in disarray, etc. What is the hope for the younger generation?
They can’t see hope, everywhere seems so bleak, The low road of mediocrity seems to be the road well travelled this days. It appears to be the short cut to success.
True Success has no short cuts. As many of you, that have seen the book, Accidental Billionaires by Ben Mezrich, the likes of Mark Zuckerberg and Eduardo Saverin did not become billionaires overnight.
They had to work very hard, sleepless nights etc. the concept of FACEBOOK was an idea whose time had come and they were in the right place at the right time and most importantly, they took massive action.
As my friend and fellow blogger at Entrepreneurshunt would put it, there is such a thing as SLAM DUNK SUCCESS.
Ask any wealthy and successful individual who truly became wealthy and financially free through the right means, they would tell you that if they were to lose all their money today, it would not be a problem, in a few years, they would have it all back and even more.
The reason is because they have imbibed skills and expertise and this is priceless.
Remember the market place pays for value. Seek to always increase value in whatever you are doing.
Which would you rather be? An Emergency millionaire? or A True and Successful millionaire?
