How to Build Wealth

“Work brings profit, but mere talk leads to poverty!
Wealth is a crown for the wise;
the effort of fools yields only foolishness.”
Proverbs 14:23-24

The way to generate wealth is through hard work and wise decisions. Very few people accumulate wealth without these two ingredients. Often people look for short cuts to get things done, like a magic pill to lose weight or winning the lottery.

Wealth is not always counted in dollars and cents. It may be the accomplishment of a big goal or to make a difference in other people’s lives. For some, it’s to be surrounded by healthy relationships with family and friends.

But there are no shortcuts to success. The Wright brothers experienced crash after crash, but they refused to give up their dream of man-powered flying. Their education was completely unrelated to flying. And at the time, the idea was considered almost impossible.

For those who work hard and work smart, wealth is our reward.
