Get Rich Quick: How Does That Word Make You Feel

20 replies
The words get rich quick is still alive and well, although it's not as popular as it was back in the roaring 80's. But it is still an emotionally charged word none the less.

When you see it, read it or hear it how does it make you feel now.

Inspired? Suspicious? Angry? Hopeful?

What say you?

    I say the same thing as the knights on "Monty Python & The Holy Grail" when faced with the white rabbit:

    "Run away!"

    I see a noob trying to make a buck online and will fail because he or she only made 2 sales in 6 months and will wonder what they could of done wrong...

    You are right, it use to be used a lot until about 2002 or so, then started fading away...It was very popular in newsgroups I recall.

    There is nothing wrong with the words, in fact, Lotteries use it. However, Building up a business online or offline has nothing to do with gambling. It is a series of precise moves towards achieving expected results.

    Well the word "scheme" usually follows that phrase.

      It's not possible to do. And while I can't say for sure I would imagine it turns away more people than it attracts.

    Those words make me feel like someone is about to pitch something that isn't going to provide value and more than likely isn't going to deliver on it's promise.

    Honestly, if I see this quote in a sales letter, I am running away as fast as I can.

    But I am sure there are people that get excited and hopeful and fall for this trap. These are still powerful words, and if you have not been around the block, I could see how easy to believe it.

    Like the others in this thread, that phrase is a turn off. It sounds like you'll be dealing in the realm of scammers and quick-buck artists.

    The Bible has something to say about get rich quick schemes -
    Proverbs 13:11 Wealth from get-rich-quick schemes quickly disappears; wealth from hard work grows.

      Yeah, I believe all big succeed is all come from good personality attitude, discipline, consistency action and always look for solution whenever face any challenges. We can see the most success people around us, most of them start with nothing, and they achieve succeed step by step.

    The obvious and inescapable negative connotation aside, I think the phrase is an interesting one.

    When you are starting out, it is the natural desire to get rick quick (-ly);
    Of course you know it's wrong to chase after this goal.

    But when you've found a certain measure of success, it becomes a viable strategy that one seeks to repeat over and over.

    Alternatively, acquiring riches is one thing; maintaining your wealth is a different beast entirely

    I am reminded of a great French philosopher after receiving a letter from the tax office: His reply read---

    Dear Sir,
    I am sitting in the smallest room of my house, your letter is before me - soon it will be behind me.

    That's what I think of get rich quick.

    Cheers,
    Davmac
