As the saying goes, “You can’t be rich and happy at the same time.” While it’s true that we should all strive to be happy as possible, there are some things that are just too good to pass up.
I’m going to leave you with this awesome quote I wrote a couple weeks ago. It’s the first time in three years I’ve written it.
A lot of bloggers tend to think that they should be rich, famous, and happy all at the same time but that’s not the case. I mean, who really wants to be famous and rich? I mean, they have the money, they have the power, and they can make money. But what happens when they’re not happy? They don’t have the money to hire an interior designer to make all their stuff more beautiful and their lives more perfect.
I’m always amazed at people who think theyre rich and famous and think they can make money doing what they do. I’m the first to admit that I’m not all that successful in the way I want to be, but I am on the other side of the spectrum from how much money I make. If I did this I would have a ton of money and my kids would probably have a ton of money. I would probably have them all studying, or something.
What does it take to be successful? It takes talent, intelligence, hard work, and determination. You can’t get rich doing what you do unless you have a lot of those things. You can also get rich, but it’s a hard road. As you continue to get more and more successful, you’ll inevitably get tired of it and move on to something new, something with a bigger paycheck.
You can also build your own business. You can build your own company and then sell it off to somebody else. You can also build your own business, make it profitable, and then use it to your advantage. When you take a company and make a profit, you can spend the rest of your life doing what you love. For example, the first time I worked in a real business I had to spend my life trying to get a job.
You can and you should.
The problem is, most people who build their own company end up in a situation where they can’t use their success for their benefit. They end up spending the rest of their lives chasing a dream they’ve never had and never will have. You can change that, and you can make a lot of money doing it.
This is a theme we see a lot in the world of entrepreneurship and venture capital. Venture capitalists are supposed to help entrepreneurs get their products and services into the hands of customers. Yet a lot of them end up trying to chase a dream they never had (or one that they can’t give up because they’re already rich), rather than helping them turn their idea into a successful company. It’s a bit like trying to become a billionaire by working as a janitor and living in a mansion.
Some ventures take off and succeed and become successful, others lose all their money and never make it past the first meeting with the investor. Some get rich and some don’t. However, the question remains: what makes these ventures successful? I’ve heard that some successful ventures have a lot of success factors that are pretty obvious. For instance, the founders had a vision and knew what they were doing. These are things that are often easy to spot in other ventures.
