Today, I want to express my thoughts on get-rich-quick schemes.
Yes, get-rich-quick schemes.
The schemes that trick you into thinking that you can really make hundreds, thousands or even millions of dollars overnight or within in a very very short time frame.
I’m a victim, you’re a victim, we’re all victims of these get-rich-quick schemes.
But enough is enough.
So, lets begin.
What Is A Get-Rich-Quick Scheme?
According to Wikipedia, “a get-rich-quick scheme is a plan to acquire high rates of return for a small investment”.
These schemes will more often than not swear that members can obtain this high rate of return with little risk, and with little skill, effort and time.
However, according to many Economic theorists, these schemes are unstable and can easy be exploited by arbitrageurs. They’re basically equivalent to gambling- the chance of success is very low.
Why Do We Keep Falling Victim To These Schemes?
We fall for theses shady schemes because of the simple fact that we actually want to get rich quick.
We want an easy road to a comfortable life where we don’t have to work for anybody, we don’t have to struggle to pay our bills or we can go on holidays whenever we like, we can spend more time with our families, friends, lovers etc… The list goes on.
However, the sad truth is that we can’t all not get all we want on a silver platter.
If that was the case then wouldn’t we all be millionaires or billionaires?
Now, I’m not saying that you can’t be a millionaire or billionaire. You can. Anybody can but if we never accept that the journey is not an easy one then we’ll continue to be fooled by these get-rich-schemes and never actually get anywhere. It’s just a dead end cycle.
So, come back to reality!
