Throughout your youth, you are taught that you have to work hard. First you have to work hard in high school so that you can go to a great university.
Then you have to work hard at university to get a very good 9 to 5 job in a big company.
This very good job will give you some financial comfort once you exceed $100K per year.
However, despite the false impression you may have at first, it is not with this job and this $100K salary that you will become rich.
Indeed, to earn this $100K per year, you must work every day from 9am to 5pm at least.
This type of 9 to 5 job is a trap because it actually forces you to exchange your time for money. You only earn money when you work.
At night when you sleep, for example, you do not earn money.
In this regard, Warren Buffett, one of the richest men on the planet, says something very eloquent:
“If you don’t find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die.”
— Warren Buffett
Rich people don’t want you to discover this secret because they employ people like you to make their businesses prosper.
So rich people use your time to become even richer while giving you a very small portion of the wealth created.
So if you want to become rich, you should think about starting your own business and simply become your own boss.
By doing so, you will give yourself the chance to create something that allows you to earn money while you sleep, which will allow you to become really rich and not have to work until you die.
