What does it take to be rich?
The most important ingredient in the enrichment journey is, in fact, the mindset. In other words, thinking like a rich person is step number one.
This means understanding that financial decisions mostly need planning. Thus, they must be taken on the basis of a well-done control of personal finances .
In this sense, the mentality must be accompanied by two other essential aspects:
- Willingness to work: it is income generation that plays the most important role in building wealth, not investing the money saved. That’s because you need to have money first, and then learn to multiply it. Work, therefore, is fundamental;
- Behaviour: the mindset must be translated into habits that will shape behavior on a day-to-day basis. How you behave with your money is more important than the money itself.
What to do to get rich?
The most important thing is to be true to your principles and values, valuing character and work above all else.
During the journey, you will certainly have to pay attention to practical aspects of financial organization and investments .
So, you will need to have discipline, determination and, above all, focus on your goals.
How to get rich?
As you will see below, there are 5 tips that every successful person practices and that are fundamental to getting rich. So read carefully:
Tip 1: Take control of your finances
First, there is financial control. Since he is needed to know the reality of his expenses and his behavior in the face of money.
There is a very famous phrase in the business world that says “it is impossible to control what you cannot see” .
So comes the question: where is your money going? Using a spreadsheet or application , you can list and access your spending profile at any time.
Even if you don’t want to use technology, you can write everything down in a notebook or diary. The effect is the same: you start to see what you actually do with the money.
Tip 2: Save

Therefore, it is imperative to learn to save, trade and live wherever possible one step below the standard of living.
Those who have a lot today have certainly given up their momentary dreams of consumption to build the tranquility they enjoy today.
Oh, is this relative? Sure. So don’t take things literally. Namely, the focus of financial education is to teach how to plan.
That is, if you save to feed a bigger dream, you will stop consuming now to enjoy the big goal in the future. And that’s all!
Tip 3: Always save
Saving for a while to reduce debt is a noble goal and one that we often manage to put into practice. Cool, but what about the future?
Undoubtedly, being able to invest today and always, creating a real habit, this is more complicated. For you to achieve this, you will need discipline and a lot of attention to planning.
Financially independent individuals are indeed able to keep their budget under control. That means saving between 10% and 50% of what they earn, or more.
But don’t be shy if you come to the conclusion that you can’t keep that much. Start by saving what you can. It’s the habit that matters.
Tip 4: Create alternative sources of income
Now it’s time to speak the truth, without fear. If you just make do with your salary, it’s going to be hard to get rich.
Those who get rich, get there building more than one source of income. It actually builds multiple revenue streams .
Again, don’t take it too literally. It’s not about running around and looking for a second job. This might make sense, but think beyond.
Why not create a business, start your own company? Or participate in a partnership with other people with an entrepreneurial spirit?
After all, every day we see many Brazilians venturing out and creating great companies from simple ideas such as:
- Sell food products;
- Resell products;
- Sell various services, based on personal experience;
- Create stores and invest in franchises.
Your focus should be on increasing equity. And with that, you can generate income on different business fronts.
Tip 5: Have a plan for retirement
Your journey needs to be designed in a way that creates wealth to be enjoyed. And that means thinking about now and tomorrow.
Retirement does n’t just mean when you stop working. It is that phase of life where you will be able to enjoy what you have built.
So take the time to build a decent retirement plan. Consider investment choices now and until then.
The money you set aside for this purpose must be respected. Saving every month to have peace of mind in the future is essential!
