Am I Crazy?

My goal is to make 100,000 dollars in under two years. Is this crazy?

Is this impossible? No. But is it plausible?

             …why not?

I believe that wealth does come in direct proportion to effort. I just need to find where to apply the effort. Just like a boulder can be moved when we apply the right kind of leverage.

100,000 dollars is a lot of money. But what is it, really, that impedes an individual from making that kind of money? I believe that time, effort and education are essential ingredients for monetary success, however, I don’t believe that there is only one recipe.

I am taught that I should be getting a job and going to school so that I can support myself. I agree that this method works, however, I feel like this is not how I will reach my goals in life or realize my potential. I know there is another way. Not because I’m a cop-out, I am no stranger to hard work. But because I feel that there is another way to accomplish the same thing that will bring more than just monetary gain. I don’t believe in working only for the money. I have done plenty of that, the returns are hardly worth the effort. I say that because I have no obligations to provide yet. If I had a family to feed then the returns would be very different. But since I am still very flexible I plan to get myself to a more advantageous position so that when I do have that responsibility I won’t have to live that way. It is a leap of faith. I am leaving the known and recommended path for one that offers no promises.

This is not some get rich quick scheme. This is an assertion of freedom as well as an experiment. Though it has been done before I pioneer the way for myself and leave a journal for others who feel as I do.

Time

Why don’t we apart time to do things that we want to do? time is a limited resource. We have many things that clamor for attention but our salary is always the same allotment each day. What we have to ask ourselves is what do I value? There is so little time that we cannot afford to spend one minute on things of lesser worth. We have so much to do. As with money, the bills should come first because they represent the preservation of our lives and those whom we love.

There is actually a lot of time that seems to slip through our fingers, at the end of the day we wonder where it all went. The fact is that we often spend it on things that have no real value to us, or we spend an excess of time on something. What we have to figure out is how much time each activity is worth, so that we don’t get ripped off for cheap stuff. Figure out what your values are exactly. Write down the things that are most valuable to you.

Good health is important to me, being relatively comfortable (warm home, bed, shower), my family is important to me so that merits a good chunk of time, my career is important to me.

What about my career is important to me?

ability to provide for my family

personal education and fulfillment

ability to contribute to society
