Wealth Quickly Gained

Wealth gained hastily will dwindle,
but whowever gathers little by little will increase it.

Proverbs 13:1

Don’t remember this in the bible, but it is a very good thought. Our society seems bent on quick gain tactics for wealth and assuming that it is the only tactic, to gain wealth. The people I know who are wealthy (I think rich has negative connotations) in the monetary sense all worked hard to get this money and it did not happen overnight (although some larger gains for them may well have).

I get “Get Rich on the Internet” schemes in my inboxes every single day, and I have read most of them (without paying for them, I don’t pay for this stuff) and it all entails either “trickery” or methodologies that make little or no sense. People get rich on the Internet by working hard and doing something FIRST or BEST, not by doing “me too” stuff.

If I am to ever “Get Wealthy” I know that there are a few simple rules to follow:

  1. Spend less than I make
  2. Pay off all my debts
  3. Invest carefully
  4. See rule #1

Simple, and the bible tells us to also be patient, it will take time, keep that in mind.

  1. In Aesop’s tale of The Tortoise and the Hare, we learn that slow and steady can win. There’s not much glamour and the tortoise may lag behind at particular moments. However, the race is long.

    The Richest Man in Babylon says: part of what you earn is yours to keep. That ties in with Rules #1 and #4.
