The knee-jerk response is a feeling of negativity or contempt.
I know. I've felt it too.
What I'm about to share is not a case FOR 'Get Rich Quick'.
It's more of a look at the other side. A 'what-if' point of view.
I guess first we should define 'Get Rich Quick'.
For the purposes here we'll say 'get rich quick' is a million dollars in less than 3 years. If you can agree with that, keep reading.
Is that even possible?
I bet your first-thought-answer is yes.
Have others created a million dollars in less than 3 years?
I bet your first-thought-answer is yes. You may launch into a load of reasons why they were able to do this. These reasons would probably include some outrageous claims that would immediately exclude you from the immediate possibility of achieving the same results.
With that said, do you think you could ever achieve a million dollar income in less than 3 years?
I bet your first-thought-answer is yes -- with certain clarifiers and conditions.
The fact is, with focused intensity and determination, a million dollars is a very doable goal in 3 years or less.
I know of someone who achieved this seven figure phenomenon in 18 months. She is very driven and has laser focused intentions for goals. When she speaks of these goals, she doesn't talk about one day. She talks about them as if they have already happened. She can see it in her mind as a fact.
Consider Justin Bieber. (I know... but stick with me just a minute.) From the time he signed with a label to one year later he was playing at a sold out crowd at Madison Square Garden. Now, I would step out on a limb here and say BEFORE he was signed he wasn't generating a million dollars. But within that next year he was... and then some. If an artist actually plays at MSG they're considered to have "made it" in the music industry. JB did it in a year. How? He told his team he didn't care how hard he had to work, he was going to play there within a year.
Not only did he play there, he sold it out!
NOTE: Even if you're not a Justin Bieber fan, there's lesson to learn from this 16 year old overnight, get-rich-quick phenomenon. And he's just a kid who loves music. We're just a guy/girl who loves ___________________.
There are tons of people that could stand up and talk about their 3 year or less road to riches. The truth is a million dollars isn't even a lot of money these days.
But I think it's hard to argue with the fact that it's a nice foundation to start with to grow some real financial freedom.
Maybe the the 'Get Rich Quick' industry gets a bad rap. Not because it's a niche that takes advantage of people. In most cases it probably doesn't. But maybe it gets a bad rap because it markets to people who don't have the follow-through and focus to actually put the principles to work for them.
I'm not naive. I know there are a LOT of 'get rich quick' programs out there that DO take advantage of people and play on their hopes. But heck! That's no different than any politician or infomercial that we see on television. And with infomercials and politicians, we've got to do our homework to see what they're really about too.
Again, I'm not PRO-get-rich-quick.
But I am pro "get focused and intense to achieve what you've been dreaming about for MORE than 3 years".
Hopefully this will be a source of encouragement and generate some brain activity. There seems to be a lack of it these days (present company excluded of course.)
