Why you are not like the rich and famous!

Let’s be honest.
We all want to be well off, wealthy, rich; abundant. And we’re fascinated by
others who already are. How did they do it? How can we do it too?
The simple truth
is that wealthy people tend to understand and do things the rest of us don’t.

From mindsets to
actual actions, they follow behavioral rules when it comes to their wealth and
these rules are what separate them from everybody else. This book (Which debuts
on Asabeafrika this morning)
codifies what those behaviors are so that you too can choose to be wealthier.
The basis of the Rules (as with the other Rules books) is that these are all
things I have observed wealthy people do.
This is, if you
like, sympathetic magic. If we do
like them, we’ll become like them. This actually does work. Quite simply, this
book reveals the following:

7 habitual rituals of the Rich
•What people do
to make money
•How they carry
on making money
•How they hang
on to it once they’ve got it
•How they spend
•How they invest
•How they enjoy
•And lastly, how
they make use of it altruistically.
In all
probability, we’d want to do as little as possible to get to be wealthy, rich;
abundant. A staggering £50 billion is
gambled in the UK each year. Gambling levels of £50 billion means there are a lot of people looking for an easy way
to make some money. Gambling £50 billion
also means a lot of them are going to be disappointed. Not all of them mind.
Casinos work on percentages – just like any business. Roulette for instance, if the game is run
properly, runs on about 28 per cent. That means if £100 crosses the table the
house expects to pocket £28 of that. It returns £72 to the players – not
necessarily the same ones who staked it. 
of us believe that even if money doesn’t make us happy (but secretly of course
we believe it will) it will at least allow us to be miserable in some comfort. We
almost all believe that money let us buy better stuff and by buying better
stuff we will be happier”

will lose. Some will win. And some will break even. But the house will always,
always win – in the long term. That’s a fact.
if so many people are gambling so much, it implies to me- and I did notice this
a lot when I worked in a casino – that they:
• Have too much
spare cash and need to get rid of some of it.
• They firmly
believe in their own ‘luckiness’
• They like to
lose so they can have a reason to feel wretched.
• They are
desperate for easy money
This book is not
for people who are after any or all of the above. No, not even the easy money bit
(sorry). However, it should make a significant improvement to your overall
prosperity. This book provides a set of principles, strategies and things to
understand and to do that won’t make you get rich quick, but they will increase
the odds of your making money and growing your wealth while remaining a decent
person. In effect we can become the house and always win. So, what do we have
to do?
Well, there are whole
numbers of things we can do. No individual rule guarantees success. But each
narrows the odds. They all increase our chances of making money it’s not as
easy as a quick win on the blackjack table but it is more assured and long term
and it doesn’t make you an addict or have you chasing a losing streak.
No need for
violins here but I was poor as a kid. I went without. I knew others had more,
had lots. I also knew, really, ·really knew that I would work my way out of
that poor upbringing. But it took a lot of false starts, a whole lot of nearly
made-its before I got it right. And I only got it right when I took the time
and trouble to observe what the really rich do. And that knowledge based on
those observations I now happily pass on to you.
I’m going to
assume you want to:
• Get richer
• Do it legally
• Do something
useful with it once you’ve got it
• Put something
•Peep some of
this stuff under your hat.
And that you are
prepared to put in a bit of work. To help you achieve this, I have divided this
book up into five sections:
• Thinking
• Getting
• Getting even
• Staying
• Sharing your
We start with
thinking wealthy because that’s the foundation on which all things wealth
related rest. We all have money beliefs. Most of us believe that even if money
doesn’t make us happy (but secretly of course we believe it will) it will at
least allow us to be miserable in some comfort. We almost all believe that
money let us buy better stuff and by buying better stuff we will be happier.
It’s not for me to discourage you in any of those beliefs, merely to give you
means of finding out for yourself whether or not this is true.
Time to start; shall
we crack on? Whatever happens, here’s to your greater prosperity.
