Making Money Fast – The Secret Is There Is No Secret

You've read hundreds of the self-help books, in which the gurus tout a thousand ways to make money and become an almost instant millionaire. The internet is littered with hundreds – yes thousands – of programs that promise incomes of thousands per day, even per hour. You were gullible enough to sign up and purchase some of these provided "wealth-panaceas." Yet you're still living paycheck to paycheck. How come? Read on.

The truth of the matter is that no program, in and of itself, is going to make you wealthy. There still are required two very important ingredients to getting wealthy: commitment and hard work. Now this work and commitment does not necessarily mean that you are going to do slave labor and burning the midnight oil until none is left; however, you will have to put in time and effort and have a goal in mind if you plan on becoming successful. As Confucius said, "Find a job you love to do and you will never work another day in your life." This epigram speaks volumes of wisdom and forms an integral part of my own philosophy toward work, success, and life in general.

The secret to all this is that there really is no secret. So the next time you see someone touting the latest sure-fire success formula for making money online, in life, or whatever, understand that this self-proclaimed guru is peddling recycled and repackaged hogwash. There is no secret to getting wealthy quickly or gaining an instant advantage over others. The secret, if any, lies in fundamental principles: integrity, focus, commitment, hard work, and I would add one other thing – joie de vivre. If you live life with a healthy and positive attitude, you will attract good things. This is really all there is to the so called "law of attraction."

Start living life with a magnetic quality. Talk to everyone you meet and make light of life. Accept that you are already wealthy and watch how your blessings multiply. This principle is one I understand intimately and one that took me forty-seven years to master. This principle can be mastered a lot sooner than that provided the teacher makes the student understand a simple fact: a person can not attract success unless he or she is willing to give up his life for some worthy cause. Once a person has crossed this threshold, he then finds that he not only gains his life back but he gains success as well. Easier said than done, but this truth will set you free. Here's to your success.
