Reading
If anyone ever offers to sell you an idea which will make you rich, remember this. It won’t. If the idea is so
good, why isn’t he or she rich enough to give it away?
There’s only one way to get rich and that is through hard work. Look at any of the richest businessmen or
women in the world and you will see people who work twenty four hours a day. Yes, we all work hard, but
not everyone is rich. What the very rich have in common is that they are always looking for the
opportunity to make money. We all like having money, but it’s the rich and successful who like making
money.

Of course, some people are born rich. There are two types of born-rich people. The first would be rich no
matter what. They like making money. They are born rich and get richer. The second type are people
who think that they are somehow special because their parents were well off. They prefer spending
money to making it. They are born rich and get poorer.
