It is important to reject the idea that you will become wealthy overnight. It is not going to happen. As it is written, “wealth from get-rich-quick schemes quickly disappears; wealth from hard work grows over time.” (Proverbs 13:11 NLT). While this position might seem to discourage your spirit. It is long-term beneficial to your health. There is nothing wrong with you. You’re going in the right direction. Your wealth is a direct result of your productivity. The day your productivity is valued in millions, you become a millionaire. The focus should be on how you are solving problems. And generating value every day.
A study of people who are actually wealthy will reveal two things. First, their wealth did not materialize overnight. Second, you can point to the productivity behind their wealth. As of December 2022, Bernard Arnault & family are considered to be the wealthiest family on earth. Bernard Arnault became rich through his successful career in the luxury goods industry. Bernard Arnault is the CEO and Chair of LVMH (Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton). He has led the company since 1989. Under his leadership, LVMH has grown significantly and now includes more than 70 brands. You can see that he did not become wealthy overnight. And that his wealth is connected to his productivity at LVMH.
Do yourself a favor and never envy those whose wealth appears to be unconnected to anything tangible. According to the Bible, such riches cannot last. Long-lasting wealth is a reflection of your productivity. And it will compound over time. So, ignore the get-rich-quick schemes. Settle down with your mission and get going. As long as you are solving problems with your work. You can never be broke. When you are creating value through your work, you will attract resources to keep going. You may believe you are already working hard but have nothing to show for it. Keep going. If the clouds are full of rain, they empty themselves on the earth. Perhaps your cloud is not yet full.
