I know it is impossible to become rich in one night or month. I wonder why the rich are becoming richer and the poor are becoming poorer. I am not rich nor poor. But I do not want to become poor, I want to become rich.......Have you any idea how it is possible.

Like you, I also want to become rich and I guess everybody does. There's nothing wrong in hoping and wishing that someday it will happen. But as what you've said, it's really very impossible for a person to get rich with just a blink of an eye. Maybe if you will win in the lottery, you will really immediately become a millionaire. But that is, if you are already a very lucky person among millions of people on earth. There are a lot of good ways to achieve our goals of becoming rich. Primarily, we really have to believe that we can do it. We should have self-confidence in order for us to have enough determination to continue giving our best for the betterment of our lives. We have to work very hard to earn quite good amount of income. If you want, you can establish your own business. But first, you have to look for a capital. It isn't that easy but it isn't impossible as well. Now, I am still on the process of achieving my ambitions in life. I know it will still take a lot of efforts and hard works for me to be able to reach the peak of my success.

Frankly speaking I'm fed up of struggling in life that's why I asked this question. Recently I met a friend of my friend whom I met for the first time. The guy is very rich. The same day he played horse races bet in front of me. He won lots of money. but when I compared him to the losers they were poor people. That is why I am saying that rich people become richer and poor remains poor. It was not a coincidence that he won lots of money. God is unfair. He always make the poor lose.

I have a variation to this question: Do you have a theory about making money? I actually started a discussion with this question last Friday, but I didn't get any decent answer. In fact, hardly anyone ventured a theory of their own. My moneymaking theory is one founded on the idea that a moneymaking asset has greater moneymaking potential in proportion to the amount of information it contains. Greater information content means greater earning potential. To become rich is now a matter of putting my moneymaking theory into action. What I will recommend is for you to find a piece of asset and study what kind of information it can absorb or accumulate. All you have to do is keep putting this in. Of course, inputs still have associated costs. An efficient low-cost method of adding inputs to an asset is the ideal.

There's no easy way to become rich. All the things in this world must be worked hard. It requires so much efforts and time. Try to read the successful story of the other. Read magazines about entrepreneurial. Me too, I always dream of becoming rich someday. Just do everything that you can and be patient. Start a small business. You can start a business by investing a small amount of money from your pocket. Take the risks. Don't be afraid to try new things in life.

The best way would be to work for yourself--make a business I mean..but first, you would have to have enough money to tart one. And it takes much patience to make it grow. Many people get rich in buy and sell I hear.

Hmmm.... Your question is quite broad to me, but let me share my thoughts. Being rich depends on how you define it. There are alot of aspects to consider for you to call yourself rich. For me, richness depends on your level of ambition, satisfaction, priorities etc. I for myself say, I am rich when it comes to my family. I have a wonderful family and friends around me. I full of love. I am happy with my life. I am also rich because I am healthy. I do not have any sickness. I enjoy my life to the maximum. I can do whatever I want to do. I am free. I am rich because I have a good education. I enjoy life because of my education. I gain trust and respect because of it. It makes me happy. Financially, I am not rich simply because I cannot have everything I want to have immediately. But I am thankful that I can have the basics in life. These, I am more satisfied. I live my life not because I have a goal of reaching millions and deposit them in the bank. I live my life in a day to day basis, but with satisfaction and joy, which I guess, should we always remember. It is not how much we have in life that makes life colorful and wonderful, but it is in seeing even the minute details in our lives and in appreciating the simple things that make life even more interesting. If satisfaction and appreciation are nurtured in our hearts, love and happiness richly spring from within.

I'll let you know when I'm rich, but I'll give you some things to think about. It might be worth considering, or a waste of your time. I don't know. I've never been rich before. First thing is stop listening to the advice of rich people. You know why the rich keep getting richer? Because there are so many suckers out there. If the rich actually tell you how to get rich, then that makes them less rich. How can you be rich if everyone starts making the same amount of money you do? That makes the value of what you have go down. So what they're actually doing is telling you things that are going to keep you running around in circles, making them more money. You ever known someone that was rich who claimed they started out sweeping floors? Its a lie. You need money to make money. You can't get where you want by sweeping floors. People look down on cleaners, and lower paying jobs. People are going to think you are stupid. No one is going to give you a chance. You know why rich people say start from the bottom? They need someone to sweep their floors. Which brings me to my next thought. Work harder for yourself, then you do for someone else. If you're always working for someone else, putting all your effort into doing things for them, you're just making them more successful, and you're not getting anywhere. Maybe they'll reward you with a bonus or promotion, and just another 50 years of doing that you might be making decent money, but most likely that won't happen. Someone playing the race card, or willing to go down on the boss is going to get those. Figure out what you want to do, and do it. Concentrate on it. If you don't have money, you have to put it hard work. There's no getting around it. You have to work your butt off. But do it for yourself.
