Book Review: How you can Get Rich Quicker by M.R. KOPMEYER

As I stumbled on the book ‘How you can Get Rich Quicker by M.R. KOPMEYER’ at my local book library, The Book Villa, I thought it must be another get rich quick scheme crafted by a hungry author out to make a quick buck. Upon reading the book page by page I came to the conclusion that no book is perfect more so financial and personal development books, not everything will apply to our daily lives bearing in mind that we live in totally different environments but the most important thing is trying to get the one thing that if you can implement in your life will make a difference. Back to How You Can Get Rich Quicker, the book provides tips on the expected mindset required to achieve success which would translate into getting rich. Below are some of the ideas or points I noted that could be of interest or help to one’s pursuit of success or financial independence journey.

Give people more of what they want, less of what they don’t want.

A good example that comes to mind is the success story behind companies like EQUITY, the strategy of targeting the poor.

Find out what people will want in the future and produce it for them.

Good example of this would be the Apple Ipad gadget. With the extensive use of notebooks and smart-phones ,Apple must have realized the need of coming up with a gadget that bridges the gap between a user who would want the mobility of a smart-phone like the Iphone while maintaining the applications and functionality of a notebook.

You first have to give other people what they want or help them get it before you can expect them to give you what you want.

Could this be the reason why so many organizations, institutions and even individuals engage in corporate social responsibility nowadays?

Acquire and develop the trait of making yourself do the things you should do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not.

Most of us are affected when it comes to procrastination; we just find it hard to do the things we ought to do for various valid or reasons. Being disciplined to do what is expected of us is one of the traits that lead to success and achieving of the big financial goals we make.

You earn more by deserving more, you deserve more by being more useful, the more useful you are the more successful you will be.

A good example would be the organizations and companies that we have worked in where there is always that one person who is good at what he or she does, the person who goes the extra mile in helping the company save on costs, increase its profits by coming up with brilliant ideas. The same person also always rises up fast, being considered for promotions and thus in the long run earning and deserving more money. The only way of becoming more useful and earning more money is being an expert in an area, highly skilled and finding a way of using your skills in helping other people achieve their goals. Be an expert at something.

Create profitable ideas by discovering something that has never existed, inventing something or modifying something which already exists.

The creator of Facebook being the best example of how you can get rich by modifying what exists. Creative ideas are based on reducing costs, saving money, increasing sales, increasing productivity, increasing profits and improving relationships.

Other tips noted on the book are listed below.

  • Make yourself indispensable, be a constant source of ideas for profitable improvements.
  • Have a high degree of interest in your work, which should become a magnificent obsession.
  • As you plan and dream big, one will always encounter obstacles and handicaps which act as our own challenges and there arises a need to overcompensate, to do better, much better and with fierce determination and unstoppable persistence that success is always inevitable.
  • Ask, believe and give thanks in advance as though you are receiving it or already have received what you want. The principle behind ‘The Secret’.
  • You must constantly improve and do better at what you do, since unless you increasingly do it better you will be asked to do it again.
  • You must first take the first step and start implementing your goals and dreams while not regretfully looking backward at past failures.
  • Write a plan/list of what you are going to achieve every day, crossing out any activity not specifically directed towards your improvement and your progress towards your goals.
  • Doing actually generates the power to do, begin and the work will get completed. If you intensely want to do something and confidently begin it, you will receive all the power necessary to do it as you move on.
  • Be a problem-solver, stop finding fault and find a solution. Learn to solve your problems and other people’s problems, be a spirit lifter.
  • Law of increasing abundance: Be thankful for everything and in return you will receive in increasing abundance.
  • As a leader devote yourself to making the dreams of others come true.
  • Do not be too quick in saying yes or too slow in saying no.
  • A business succeeds or fails based on its competitive rate of improvement.

What is your take on this, if you were the author of the book what is the one principle that you live by that would accelerate the rate of achieving success or financial independence?
