How To Get Rich - Being Lazy Is Not Always Bad


Do you think lazy people deserve to become wealthy ? Do you think you must work hard all day every day to deserve wealth ? Truth is many of the wealthy make money by being lazy !


Pants On Fire Attitude


If you are like me, you were brought up with the attitude that you must work hard every day to get ahead in life. You must work hard at school, get good marks, get a good job, etc. etc.

This attitude persists today in what I call the Pants On Fire Attitude. You get a good paying job, or maybe two or three perhaps. You make lots of money, but you spend a lot of your time doing it. In fact many spend so much time making money, they leave little or no time for the important things in life. They leave no time for living.


Why Lazy Is Considered Bad


Our society has developed an attitude that being lazy is very bad for your health and your wealth. They mistakenly associate being lazy with having no ambition. Lazy people are always depressed or lack the drive to make something of themselves. They end up on welfare and suck money from society. Sound familiar ?

Yes, society has conditioned us to believe that we must be busy, busy to get ahead in life. Anyone who is considered lazy must be a deadbeat and will go nowhere in life. In reality, this is far from the real truth.


How Being Lazy Can Be Good 


There is a good lazy and a bad lazy. Bad lazy, as described above, is when you expect others to pull you through life without trying to help yourself. Many on welfare fit this description.

Good lazy is when you develop a way to provide your everyday needs without spending much of your time doing it. Most importantly though, you do not rely on others to do this for you.

You may ask, how is this possible ? Well, simply put, find ways to create passive income. Passive income is basically income you make without spending much of your time developing it.

There are many examples of passive income including investing in companies that pay you a dividend simply for owning the shares. Purchasing revenue properties is another, as long as you have them managed by someone else. A vending business is another where very little time is needed for collecting this income.


What To Do


First of all, get over the stigma that being lazy is always bad. Next, get out there and look for ways to make money without trading your valuable time for it.

I have been considered by many as being semi retired since somewhere in my thirties. I chose to work less, pay less tax and look for ways to develop income without always being there. I am sure there are many that thought I was lazy with no ambition. Lazy yes, but not without ambition. That is the huge difference between the wealthy and the poor.

True wealth is defined as spending your time doing what you want to do, not spending your time doing what others want you to do.

As always, I welcome your comments and suggestions for future topics.
