In “How Do You Become Rich?“, Finance Fox pens a 1,200 word post on what it takes to reach the promised land. I immediately checked out the post because I’m always fascinated about how others define rich and how others plan to get rich. Eddie’s definition of rich is “having a fortune over $1 million bucks.” $1 million bucks is a good amount of money, but at what age? At 35, that’s pretty darn rich. At 70, not so much.
Eddie then goes on to ask what is the secret of successful rich people? My answer is almost always, PERSEVERANCE. The ability to solider on and not give up even in the worst moments. Every single wealthy person I know has had some tremendous disappointments in their lives, but they don’t stop trying.
The more critics there are, the greater the wealthy person’s fire is to succeed.
