If I Could Only Tell You 4 Things
Start investing early. The earlier you start, the more your investments benefit from compounding (see section on compounding for full details). Starting early increases your chances of getting wealthy.
Learn to manage your spending. No matter how much you earn, you need to be capable of spending less, in order to become wealthy. Building healthy spending habits increases your chances of getting wealthy.
For most people, a diversified approach is best. Essentially, this means don’t put all your eggs in one basket. When you don’t diversify, you run the risk that one bad investment can severely impact your net worth. Luckily, diversification is really easy to do with modern services (see section on Tools and Services). Diversification increases your chances of getting wealthy, with less risk.
But first, invest in yourself. If you’re struggling to save/invest enough money because your salary isn’t high enough, focus on that first. Invest in education, qualifications, learning, re-training, getting a promotion, negotiation a higher salary etc. A higher salary increases your chances of getting wealthy.
