The fastest way to get rich !! …I’m not kidding!!

Thats right I will reveal in this post the fastest way to get rich and I will tell you for free!!

Why would someone just give that kind of highly valuable information away? I could sell this for big bucks. It’s worth it after all.

So whats the deal?

How do you measure “RICH” anyway?

How do you know if YOU are rich?

This is the core question and the real problem in our culture today. We are in a big race to get rich. It is an obsession we spend our entire lives trying to overcome.

Rich…what is it? Who determines it? How do we measure it? Is it money? Is it things? Is it a feeling? A place? A state of mind? Maybe it is all of the above? What makes one person rich and the other wealthy? How do you compare? Is comparing the way of determining? If you take two people who have the same meager living conditions why is one living simply while the other is poor? Is living rich external or internal? Is it physical or mental?

That is a lot of processing to do. Its important to examine this and decide how we measure RICH in our lives. Our core values are what will create that answer. Understanding what those are will determine how we set those values. So the more we know the better we will define RICH.

Rich by definition may and will change thru your life because your values change. What is important to you now may not be as important to you later in life.

As an individual we can physically only create so much money working by the hour if we are employed. We exchange time for money. We can then exchange money for things. Depending on how many and what kind of things we want/need will be determined by how much time we are willing to exchange for money. So there are limiting factors here. This is where we start to get into trouble when we want more things than we can exchange time for.

Credit or selling your time in advance sounds like the solution. Its very attractive at first 😉

But it starts a downward spiral of desperate problems and stresses that all too often make people realize after the fact that the things were not worth the exchange in advance of the time you presold to get them. This is often when our values change, Don’t ask me how I know this:) Now the light becomes brighter (for some) and dimmer for others that don’t get the lesson.

Ok…still with me?

Whats the answer? I will say it even thou I think you already know it.

The fastest way to get rich is to REDUCE YOUR NEEDS.

Thats it.

So the more you know the less you need.

If you have less needs/wants (Be clear on the difference) you will have more time, money, choices and RICHES!!

Less is really more. More freedom to decide how and where you will live your life. Out of a backpack, on a boat, in an RV, a tiny house ect.

Stop worrying about what other people think. They don’t really care about you they are only worried about what you think. The silly measuring stick we all use on each other.

  1. Kevin, to begin, I have lived a fabulously rich lifestyle (not referring to money!) most all of my life. My wonderful parents told me three things that are really important, work with persistence, be thankful for what you have as there will always be others with more or less than you have and, finally, dignify everyone you come in contact with. I have tried to live by these principles and have been rewarded with everything I could ever want in life. About a year ago, I had a potential client that seemed to be “on the fence” about consummating an agreement with me. I finally asked why and he said, “Your are highly paid in your work and it is my understanding from others that you have always been very successful, but for the life of me, I cannot understand why you don’t live in a mansion, drive a new mercedes and generally look the part.” I couldn’t help smiling and said,”When you get all those things and tire of them, you begin to realize what is really important, and it is not those things”. We never agreed to work together. He couldn’t understand what I was saying. He had already financed a big house and just bought a new boat. His business was on course to grow and succeed. Today, a little more than a year later, he is practically bankrupt, holding on by a thread with all that he now “owns” which is in jeopardy of being repossessed. Throughout my life, I have helped many people grow from obscurity to multimillionaires. Too often, I have seen them place too much value on their tangibles. As a consequence, when they get to where they think they want to be, they remain unfulfilled. One example: Four years ago, I guided a man I have been mentoring for some years into a position where he earned approximately 12 million dollars in one lump sum. Days later, he called me and sounded like he was desperate. He went on to explain that he had no purpose, no goal and he was miserable. I told him he should go sit on top of a mountain and deliberate for a while. He said he could not, he had to get something going to be happy and successful. I asked how much he needed to be “successful” and he said, “It is never enough”. At that point, as much as I liked this person, I knew the time had come for us to part friends.
    Success is not something we own or achieve, it is in our hearts today, if we accept that. One more day on this earth, to breathe, to see, to live is our blessing. And our reality is anything we desire to make it, good or bad. People like you, Kevin, are my greatest reward. Keep it up!

  2. No doubt many (most?) measure “rich” by $. Years ago I worked for a man that makes more in a year than what I’ll make in my lifetime. I wouldn’t trade with him even for 10 times his net worth.

    Sure I’d like to struggle less but I still consider myself lucky comparatively. 75% of the clients one of my suppliers had are out of business. In this economy a successful month is one I don’t have to dip into the savings. I only wish I’d realized the small home ideology a decade earlier.

  3. “A man is rich in proportion to the number of things he can afford to let alone.”
    — Henry David Thoreau, US Transcendentalist author (1817 – 1862)


    Harriman seems an unlikely person to befriend John Muir. But Harriman, when ordered by his doctor to take a vacation, organized the “Harriman Expedition” to Alaska in 1899, to be accompanied by many prominent scientists and writers of the time. Muir was invited to attend the expedition aboard the George W. Elder.

    Muir was reported to have said on the trip, “I don’t think Mr. Harriman is very rich. He has not as much money as I have. I have all I want and Mr. Harriman has not.” Harriman apparently took this in good humor. He told Muir, “I never cared for money except as power for work… What I most enjoy is the power of creation, getting into partnership with Nature in doing good, helping to feed man and beast, and making everybody and everything a little better.”


    lastly, if the first comment by John Mauldin is the John Mauldin at
    (and it sounds like it might be), then you’ve got a very interesting web audience! I’ve read quite a bit his economic commentary over the last 5+ years, and he hangs around some real movers and shakers.
