14. Looking for Get-Rich-Quick Schemes
Some people look for a get-rich-quick scheme. This is happening a lot lately with more people losing their jobs and working from home. All over social media, you’ll see advertisements for online courses of people promising you’ll make millions of dollars. There are also a lot more scams that have stolen thousands of dollars from people’s accounts. Under normal circumstances, someone might not have fallen for a trick like this. Desperation is what leads people to try these risky ideas. But remember that if something seems too good to be true, it usually is.
The real people who find these rare “golden ticket” opportunities for success are hiding that information. Or, they only explain the process to their closest friends and family. If they advertise their methods to the world, it would create more competition for them. The only way to get rich is by working hard and putting in the work. It has to be a legitimate job or business, and you need to have a solid plan on how you’re going to get to your goals. Every successful person you assume has gotten rich quickly probably has a long story you never get to hear.
