Imagine you are filling a survey. One of the questions asks you if you want to be wealthy. You have an option to answer in a yes or a no. Which one would you choose?
I guess everyone will answer yes.
Now, let us come to the real World. Statistics show that about 5% of the world's population enjoys 95% of the world's wealth. The rest of the population slog to earn a share out of the 5% leftover wealth.
Where do you stand? Among the smaller group that is enjoying the major portion of the global economy or in the group that is fighting for the leftovers. The most important reason is that while everyone wants to be really wealthy, very few really want to be wealthy. This sounds like a paradox. Everyone fantasises wealth. The ones who become wealthy are the ones who dreams.
You may ask what is the difference. I would like to quote Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, "Dream is not that you see in sleep, dream is something that does not let you sleep." Dreams that do not drive you are fantasies.
This is a fast changing world. Gone are the days when getting wealth was a lifetime of hard labour. Smart work is the buzz word. Tons of books have been written about smart way to wealth. I will not get in to the depth if this wide subject. Rather, I propose to introduce you to this subject. Here are a few pointers to get you started.
