The Math Doesn’t Work

Don't listen to anybody. Nobody knows the magic bullet. If they did, they'd sell it and make a fortune. Follow your gut. Follow your instincts. Every once in a while, take a chance.
Michael Cudlitz

Imagine a hypothetical world.

In this world, 1 out of 1000 people make a million a year and everyone else makes $50,000 a year.

That means the total amount made is $1,000,000 time 1 person + $50,000 times 999 people which equals $50,950,0000.

If that was distributed evenly amongst the 100 people each person would get $50,950 about a 2% increase.

In the real world, less than 1 in a thousand make a million a year.

The real lesson here is that there is no magic bullet to becoming rich. If there was a magic bullet the math would be different.

The only way to consistently increase how much money you make is to create more value and creating that value takes time and effort.
