Over the last few years I have been reading a lot of books/biographies/auto biographies to find out some kind of drama around suddenly amassing a fortune.
Somewhere I had this feeling that there must be a magic formula or providence would strike and I would definitely be as rich as the Oracle of Omaha – Warren Buffet. I read the Snowball by far one of the most authentic accounts of his life and other books on him. Found nothing dramatic or sexy in it. As a matter of fact you sometimes find them boring because their life seems to have the same twists and turns.
I read Tony Robbins and his “Unshakable” and “Money – Master the Game”. Then among others I also went out and read Ramit Sethi and Richard Koch. Again nothing romantic that could suddenly help me leave my job and do what I want to do.
Now most of these guys are seriously rich so they must be doing something right. Some definitely had their take on finding different ways, like Richard Koch with his fundamental book on 80:20.
Well if you remove the stories and hype surrounding these guys…they just ensured they were following a system continuously for the long term.
They had the same short term distractions that you and I have. Some of them may have some luck on their side sometimes. However they just kept at the system they decided they would follow to achieve their freedom.
Unlike me and a lot of us. We get distracted with things, which when they appear, seem to be big. But when you look back at life they were small blips but they broke us away from our long term goal.
Irrespective of the path you want to follow, ensure that short term blips do not deviate you from your long term goal. There will be zigs and zags but keep at it
