How I become so rich

My story is one of extremes. Extreme pain, extreme joy. Extreme darkness, extreme light. Rock bottom to mountain top. Rags to riches.

My story teaches me some lessons about life. Top amongst them, you can rise from oblivion to stardom. You can go from a hut to an ivory tower.

How can that be possible? I will share that secret with. First, my story:

I was once in rags. I never knew what it meant to wear a new dress, new shoes, and new whatever.

I went for days without food. I would watch people with a mixture of envy, bitterness, wonder and sorrow as they wined and dined like lords.

It looked like I was not born for the good things of life.

And many people, without saying so, made me understand I could never amount to anything; that my place was at the bottom; that I had no choice but to accept my lot in life.

But I refused to accept this declaration. Some voice within me, silent but strong, kept telling me I was not born to be among the downtrodden; that despite what I was going through, I had a place at the top which I needed to gun for and claim.

This was what I did. That was the voice I listened to. I set out to create a new story of my life.

I told my God in the silence of my heart I knew he had a great plan for me and I would leave no stone unturned to make it come true.

I asked him to be on my side; to help me; to guide me to my destiny as designed by him.

My decision taken, I went to work. Each time someone or something told me I was meant to be at the bottom, I refused to listen. Instead, I told myself I was meant to be at the top.

It was with this belief in mind that I kept working. Day in and day out, I worked.

I worked. I sweated. Even when I was tired, I continued to work. I strained every nerve.

I met with disappointment. I failed many times in many projects I tried; but refused to call it quits.

Many times I reminded myself that quitters never win and winners never quit.

It was a long, hard journey. The road was not smooth. Many potholes paved my path. Many times I slipped and fell. But I did not stay down. I got up and continued.

It went on and on. Then, before long, I began to see some light at the end of the tunnel.

And before I knew it, I was living a brand new life. I was living in an ivory tower. Today, I rank among the richest men in the world.

I have given my story that you may learn if you want to make life me. There is no reason for you to waste your life in misery. You can become whatever you want to be.

Get what I did to become one if the richest persons in the world and follow the same steps. You will become as rich as me, if not more.

Can your life change in an instant?

Your life can change in an instant.

One day you can be down, and the next day, you are at the summit. It is possible; and has happened to many people.

You could be the next person.

But how does it happen? Who makes it happen?

I know many people who, reading this, will be asking these questions and more. Who would not want to be rich in one day? Everybody would love to know the secret; and apply it to get skyrocketed to success.

You can be rich in an instant if God decides that it should happen to you. God alone can do it. You cannot do it for yourself. It only happens when God decides it should happen.

The good thing is you can make God take that decision in your favour.

How can you do that? By getting into an excellent relationship with Him.

Of course, you know how to build a great relationship with God. It is through prayer.

Pray without ceasing. That will get you into his heart and once you are there anything you ask, will be given you.

Letter to the rich

Dear rich people of the world,
Tell me how you got your riches;
Did you earn them honestly?
Or you acquired them dishonestly?
If you earned them honestly,
That is good;
You have a right to enjoy
The sweat of your brow.
If you earned them
In the dark,
What a shame!
Riches are good,
When not earned through
Dirty hands.
Ill-gotten wealth is bad;
And ends up destroying its author.
Be rich if you can;
But know how you get
Your riches;
Feed not fat on the poor;
And in opulence swim,
While they like flies perish
In abject poverty.

Smart people make quick money and become rich while foolish people become poor

Greedy people want to become rich quick. They jump on every opportunity they find. But beware! Don’t be stupid! Otherwise you may instead become poor quick. It’s easy. Look at what happened to a whole village. The people wanted to be rich. Read their story:

Monkey business.
A lot of monkeys lived near a village.๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’

One day a merchant came to the village to buy these monkeys!๐Ÿต๐Ÿต๐Ÿต๐Ÿต๐Ÿต

He announced that he will buy the monkeys @ $100 each. ๐Ÿต๐Ÿ’ต

The villagers thought that this man is mad.๐Ÿ˜‡

They thought how can somebody buy stray monkeys at $100 each?๐Ÿค”

Still, some people caught some monkeys and gave it to this merchant and he gave $100 for each monkey.

This news spread like wildfire and people caught monkeys and sold it to the merchant.๐Ÿ˜ฌ

After a few days, the merchant announced that he will buy monkeys @ 200 each. ๐Ÿต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต

The lazy villagers also ran around to catch the remaining monkeys!๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’

They sold the remaining monkeys @ 200 each.๐Ÿ˜‹

Then the merchant announced that he will buy monkeys @ 500 each!
๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต

The villagers start to lose sleep! … They caught six or seven monkeys, which was all that was left and got 500 each.๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿต๐Ÿต๐Ÿต๐Ÿต๐Ÿต๐Ÿ’

The villagers were waiting anxiously for the next announcement.๐Ÿ™„

Then the merchant announced that he is going home for a week. And when he returns, he will buy monkeys @ 1000 each!๐Ÿต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต

He asked his employee to take care of the monkeys he bought. He was alone taking care of all the monkeys in a cage.๐Ÿค ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’

The merchant went home.๐Ÿ˜Ž

The villagers were very sad as there were no more monkeys left for them to sell it at $1000 each.โ˜น๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜“

Then the employee told them that he will sell some monkeys @ 700 each secretly. ๐Ÿ˜ถ

This news spread like fire. Since the merchant buys monkey @ 1000 each, there is a 300 profit for each monkey.๐Ÿ˜ฌ

The next day, villagers made a queue near the monkey cage.๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿต๐Ÿ’๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿค‘

The employee sold all the monkeys at 700 each. The rich bought monkeys in big lots. The poor borrowed money from money lenders and also bought monkeys!
๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ต

The villagers took care of their monkeys & waited for the merchant to return. ๐Ÿ˜•

But nobody came! …๐Ÿ˜ค Then they ran to the employee…๐Ÿค 

But he has already left too !๐Ÿ˜‰

The villagers then realised that they have bought the useless stray monkeys @ 700 each and unable to sell them! ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ.

This is the story of bitcoin and other similar wonder banks as well as other greedy ways of acquiring wealth.

Watch out for the next monkey ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿ™Š business

It will make a lot of people bankrupt and a few people filthy rich in this monkey business. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜…

That’ how it works๐Ÿคฃ

This story looks funny yet it makes sense when you think deep

Be honest (Be inspired today 318 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

Do not be dishonest;
Do not go for dishonest riches;
Be honest;
The bible warns against
Riches dishonestly earned;
Do not take bribe;
You will land
Not only yourself,
But also your family
Into trouble;
It is better to be poor
But honest,
Than to be rich
And dishonest;
If you get a good position
By playing a foul game,
That position will bring you
More sorrow than joy;
Do not raise your children
With stolen money;
Or money you get
By cheating someone;
You cannot do that
And claim to be a success;
Neither can your children
See light.
Of all policies,
It is well known
Or everyone should know
Honesty is the best policy;
Therefore, be honest.

Who does not like riches?(Be inspired today 44 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

Who does not like riches?
Who does not like to be rich?
Who does not like to have
A lot of money?
Make a mad man rich
And see what he does
With his riches;
Every normal person
Likes to be rich;
But you are not rich;
True or false?
You like to be rich
But you are not rich.

If you want to be rich (Solidarity BloGgerS ForUM No 36 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

If you are interested in becoming rich, let me refer you to a post, I found on manifesting riches that stroke a chord in me. It is titled Manifesting Money: this could be why it’s not working for you. The author, Louis Keller, very beautifully introduces us to the book Becoming Rich by Genevieve Davis who has a completely different approach to how to become rich. I couldn’t agree more with the points Keller advances in her post. It’s a post worth reading if you are interested in becoming rich.

Her blog is titled From surviving to thriving. You will find many articles on this site that can help you on your journey to riches.
