How to get rich

This is an excerpt from Mark Cuban, a multi-millionaire and owner of the Dallas Mavericks. He speaks on the path to great financial wealth:

There are no shortcuts. NONE. With all of this craziness in the stock and financial markets, there will be scams popping up left and right. The less money you have, the more likely someone will come at you with some scheme . The schemes will guarantee returns, use multi level marketing, or be something crazy that is now “backed by the US Government”. Please ignore them. Always remember this. If a deal is a great deal, they aren’t going to share it with you.

I dont broadcast my great deals. I keep them all to myself. The 2nd thing to remember is that if the person selling the deal was so smart, they would be rich beyond rich rather than trolling the streets looking to turn you into a sucker. There are no shortcuts.

So what should you do to get rich ?

Save your money. Save as much money as you possibly can. Every penny you can. Instead of coffee, drink water. Instead of going to McDonalds, eat Mac and Cheese. Cut up your credit cards. If you use a credit card, you dont want to be rich. The first step to getting rich, requires discipline. If you really want to be rich, you need to find the discipline, can you ?

  1. Sounds like common sense. Also sounds alot like what Dave Ramsey says.

  2. This is good advice if you want to get rich in financial wealth. In this world there are three types of people, consumers, producers and thieves. Those that are consumers use up everything they make and most American consumers go beyond that and use up their future earnings also – it’s called debt. Producers on the other hand consume only that which is necessary for survival and always have a surplus. Some of the surplus is stored for future use and the rest is put back to work as investment. In this way their labor is multiplied many times over, and with time, the producers are considered rich by the consumers. Common thieves do not become rich because they have no discipline.

    The Kingdom of God is composed of consumers and distributors, with God as the source of the supply. Therefore to become rich in His kingdom we must distribute, or give away, the product. There are no shortcuts here either and discipline is mandatory. The main difference is that this is the best deal there as ever been, and it MUST be shared for you to become rich in His Kingdom.

  3. that is so good to read. It is really helpful to read that and be reminded that when I am impulsive and buying something totally frivolous that I am not being a good steward.
    Thanks for the post Pastor!

  4. I hope cowboy churches are not like my agenda. In fact, if anybody votes for me they are in serious need of prayer.

  5. Oops, posted to the wrong day.
