6. You Don’t Have A Clearly Defined Plan
If you know you want to get rich, but you do not have a very clearly defined plan that will help you achieve your short-term and long-term goals, then you should be realistic – it will never happen. Unless you win the lottery and you suddenly get rich overnight, you will have to come up with a clear plan of action that will help you achieve your financial goals, and you will need to follow it religiously.
Perhaps the most important part of this plan is your emergency fund: failing to have an emergency fund for unexpected situations will only harm your finances even more. Just imagine what would happen if you suddenly become ill and you do not have a medical insurance: your medical bills will sky-rocket. Saving money should definitely become a priority, if your main goal is to accumulate wealth over the years.
7. You Are Simply Not Willing To Work Hard Enough
Procrastination is your biggest enemy. While it is true that there are some people out there who managed to hit the jackpot without working too much, this does not mean you will, too. Usually, people who have a revolutionary idea and who have the resources to make it happen are the ones who become rich without “going the extra 10 miles” – however, in most cases, this was only a strike of genius, it was not their intention to get rich without working hard for it. Once again, everything comes down to your mentality, and if you truly want to succeed, you will need to think like a true winner and to act like one, too!
