There are two sayings I live by with regards to generating wealth
1-Having money is all about having ideas, if you don’t have money you just lack ideas
2- If there is a will there will always be a way
These quotes had a great impact on my life as an investor. All the planning in the world won’t prevent you from hitting a few hurdles in life. It is a known fact, to get ahead in life you will need to overcome challenges.
Well, now that I got that boring part out of the way, let’s talk about the fun parts of making money.
Investing can be very rewarding and quite fun, if you do it right. Doing this is not as difficult as you may think, it is pretty easy actually.
1) Research research research – Learn before you earn.
Most people get into money making ideas based on stories of quick payments and being able to make millions with little or no effort. It is realistic to make a lot of money in investing but some initial effort will be required to get the ball rolling.
Never take on anything without proper knowledge on the ins and outs of what you will be doing. Leaping without a parachute is a sure way to failure.
2) When choosing an investment strategy, it should be based on more than just the promise of making a lot of money.
It is best to pick an investment based on what you like to do. For instance, if ou are an introvert you should avoid investment strategies that require you to be outgoing. If you are the conservative type then strategies that require you to be outgoing are not for you.
On the other hand, you may have a promising future in stocks an real estate if you are good with numbers and data.
Take stock of your likes and dislikes, then choose a strategy that blends well with your likes. I used this technique to take stock of my natural abilities and this eventually lead me to options trading on-line and making money on-line. I love the idea of working from home.
3) Approach investing with an open mind
All you need to do is try. There are an unbelievable amount of ways to make a secondary income. There will always be those that will tell you that something cannot be done, don’t listen to them. If there is a will there is a way, find your will and way to make it happen.
I will bet my monthly earnings (a lot of money) that if you asked all the millionaires if someone at one time told them they would fail, ALL of them would say yes.
