The Secret Key to Wealth Isn’t So Secret

Something happened.  I’m not sure when, but somewhere down the line younger people gained a serious case of entitlement.

When I was growing up, we were taught that nothing comes for free- that we had to work hard and do the dirty work to climb up the ladder.  We were taught that if we wanted success and financial gain, we had to put our all into whatever it was that we were reaching for and that nothing would be handed to us in life.

A few years ago, I headed up a marketing department and it was then that I noticed that an alarming number of people in their teens and early 20’s felt everything should be handed to them. They thought I was mean because I held them accountable for their actions and required that they do the job they signed up to do.

But it looks like I was onto something.  80 percent of the wealthiest people in America made their money on their own. Instead of getting an inheritance or winning the lottery or having everything handed to them, they worked hard starting and sometimes selling businesses that made them rich.

So if you want to be rich and feel like you’ve been cheated in this life because you don’t have a rich dad, it’s time to put that excuse to bed and buck up and work for your worth. The numbers don’t lie.
