How much of a daydreamer are you? Well, let’s admit, sometimes we all fantasise about the positive outcome of our current financial situation. We try to stay optimistic and prefer to see the world through rose-tinted glasses. However, we live in a harsh reality, sometimes it’s better to stop daydreaming and start making a plan that could bring you real profit.
#1. What if I get a huge inheritance and become rich overnight? What a nice prospect!
There are some young people who tend to rely on their relatives until they are middle-aged. They are sure that their parents and grandparents, who have worked hard during their lives to secure a happy and wealthy future for the beloved offspring, are happy to help them. Even if it is so, it may go wrong one day! Relying on someone else or waiting your close relatives to pass away has never been a good financial strategy. Let the ‘inheritance fantasy’ be only a dream and start working right now! This ‘hard work’ strategy will give you a much bigger chance of being successful.
# 2. What if I win a million? Oh, just imagine, ‘Mr. Brown the millionaire’. Stop this moment forever.
Everyone knows the lottery is a trap. Everyone knows it, but millions still try. The funniest thing is we completely understand that the chances to win are too small to be a reality. Despite this, I’ve only ever met a couple of people who have never ever bought a lottery ticket.
Winning the lottery can be a double trap. Even if you win, are you sure you will use this money correctly? If you haven’t got enough skills in budget management, you can put yourself in a situation where the money will just slip through your fingers.
# 3. I’ll launch a website and will make money on advertising. What can be easier?
You’ve probably encountered numerous books, expert articles and video tutorials on how to create a cool website and gain profit on advertising. They often teach you to produce a ‘junk’ resource with no useful content, but one that is highly rated by the search engines, receiving lots of traffic and advertising income accordingly.
A more adequate approach is to create full-fledged website or a blog with relevant and useful content, in addition to selling advertising, but only after attracting a large audience. Sounds better, doesn’t it? Well yes, but don’t rush to quit your current job. Dreaming of earning money with the help of your newly born website. It’s not that easy.
