The Way to Wealth, written in 1757, is a summary of Benjamin Franklin’s advice from Poor Richard’s Almanac published from 1733-1758. It’s a compilation of proverbs woven into a systematic ethical code advocating industry and frugality as a “way to wealth”, thereby securing personal virtue. His advice is just as relevant today as it was 270 years ago when first written. If you have any interest in financial security then you’ve gotta read this! You’ll be amazed how little has changed in all these years. The principles that lead to wealth are timeless wisdom, and you must know them to achieve your financial goals…
The Surprising Reason So Few People Succeed At Building Wealth - Revealed!
Why do certain postal employees and teachers with ordinary incomes achieve financial freedom, while doctors and lawyers earning multiple times more income end up in bankruptcy?
The reason is more complex than most financial gurus teach.
The truth is there's no magic wealth system or program that produces reliable results despite the over-hyped claims of marketers.
Instead, the wealth building process is mundane and practical - like a series of hurdles you must jump over, without tripping up - no different than building your own business or achieving any other serious economic goal.
The hurdles are:
- Commitment so that you prioritize everything necessary to build wealth; otherwise, life will just get in the way.
- Plan based on proven principles that actually work, and it must be uniquely designed to fit your skills, resources, and interests.
- Action because nothing happens without persistent, disciplined action over sufficient time to reach the end goal.
I know that doesn't sound nearly as sexy as the "hidden secrets of the rich" sold by marketer types, but it is timeless wisdom that actually works.
People want to believe in get-rich-quick and overpriced weekend bootcamps because they promise to deliver that "secret missing ingredient" that previously held you back.
The secret is there are no secrets.
The wealth system that works today is the same program that worked 250 years ago because people haven't changed. The principles are the same, and only the details have changed with time.
The hurdles you must clear to reach your wealth goals are timeless, and the fact that nearly everybody trips up on one of these hurdles remains the reason why wealth remains for the select few.
It is just human nature.
For example, just consider the second hurdle and all the difficulties hiding behind your wealth plan and the eduction required to develop it.
There’s no proven quality standard in financial education. There’s no vetting organization to separate good from bad, and most people don’t have enough financial background to spot a fake or tell quality from junk.
Who can you trust? How do you know?
It’s a serious problem.
The truth is all the information you could ever need to know for achieving financial freedom already exists, most of it for free. In fact, we’re overwhelmed by information.
But if you bought every wealth building program you’d never make any money because you’d be so tied up in knots trying to unravel the confusion and figure out which way to go that it would be difficult to commit to a direction and get started.
Here's the reality. Each one of the 3 hurdles listed above is required to achieve wealth, and each hurdle is surrounded by landmines just like the planning hurdle described above.
Fortunately, there is a scientifically proven way to engineer your life so that you achieve financial freedom in 7-15 years by clearing all of these hurdles.
