Today I’m gonna give you some advice on one of the most profound concepts that I’ve learned in my life that has helped me become a millionaire by the age of 17 and a multi-millionaire by the age of 30. I’m now 57 run a figure Now! You may not realize this, but one of the most toxic concepts and one of the most toxic ideas that you have been exposed to is this. That if you make money in a very short period of time, and that when you make money quickly it is a bad idea. You’ve heard of the term, get rich quick is a scam right.
Somehow in this society, we believe that if you make your money quick it must be something shady, you got to be doing something illegal, it must be a scam, right? Get rich quick, ooh, that’s a bad idea. When people say oh, is that get rich quick scam thing.
You better hope that it is true. Because you don’t have time to get rich slowly. Now, what do I mean by that?
Wealth is not just measured by how much money you have, wealth is measured more in time than in just money. Let’s say you make $25,000 a year and let’s say you work 40 years. How much money you’ve made? One million dollars. Now is one million dollars a lot of money?
Absolutely, you’ve made a million dollars. The question is, are you rich NOW? Nope.
And Why not? Because it took you 40 years to accumulate and make a million dollars.
Now let’s look at a different scenario. Let’s say you still make a million dollars, but instead of taking you 40 years you make that same million dollars within 12 months, that’s a year. Now, are you rich? Yes! Now you are a millionaire.
You might say what is the difference? It’s the same one million dollars?.
The difference is the time that it took you to make that amount of one million dollars.
And the best thing is this, that when you make your money in a short period of time, guess what? Now you have more time to enjoy it.
Instead of waiting till you are 65 years old then you might enjoy your money for about 10 years hope more before you kick the bucket.
Why not enjoy it for 20, 30, 40, 50, or 60 years? That’s the only difference. That’s why wealth is not measured in how much money you make, it’s how fast you make that money. Let’s think bigger now.
What if you make a million dollars a month?.
The person who makes a million dollars a month is 12 times richer than the person who makes a million dollars a year. And he or she is richer than the person, 480 times richer than the person who makes $25,000 for 40 years, that’s the difference.
And that’s why rich people, value time more than we value money. Poor people, value money more than they value their time.
Procrastinators never value anything but themselves
And if there’s something that I need to do but is not that important, I’m not gonna do it, because it’s not worth my time. My time is much more valuable. I have other activities that I could do that could bring in more money. Now you might well say, easy for you to say that you’re Ricardo De La Cerda. You’ve got money, of course, you could do that.
That is not true. You might be thinking ‘because you are rich, that is not true.
I got rich when I started valuing my time. Most people never get rich or make good money, why? – because they never value their time.
So think about this. If I get an interview for 3 minutes that would be $3000.00 dollars meaning I get paid $1000.00 dollars per minute and that is how I value my time.
NOW, Do you wanna make it quick, or do you wanna make it slow? Do you have time to even make it slow? If you’re serious about making it faster, not the traditional path, but how do you make it faster?
