19. Having Less Time
Unless you were born into a wealthy family, money doesn’t grow on trees. You have to work incredibly hard to make more. This is why so many rich people have so little free time. Most of them have completely full schedules. In her documentary Miss Americana, Taylor Swift shared that she has tours booked for the next two years of her life, and she only spends a few days at home relaxing before she has to go somewhere else. Sacrificing her free time is the only way she has grown to be as rich and famous as she is.
No matter who you are or what industry you work in, you are going to have to sacrifice your free time if you want to get rich. This might come in the form of self-education, starting a business, or working overtime. The famous 4 Hour Work Week is something that comes after you have already worked hard beforehand. Even then, most rich people don’t actually have such a short work week, because they need to maintain their lifestyle.
