The Get Rich Quick Automated System Mentality

So I got this email recently from a subscriber and I think it illustrates perfectly how so many people just want an autopilot system for getting rich – and they don’t realize what it actually takes to get rich..

“While I am desperately in need of making some spare cash, due to the fact that my sole income is a disability pension – and I am in serious debt at the moment – I have neither the time to study lengthy courses or learn how to access various internet marketing sites, so (if this sounds like what I would need for what you are offering) I would appreciate it if you will kindly REMOVE MY NAME/ADDRESS from your records.

Allow me to level with you. Three days of each week are taken up with my dialysis treatment at the local hospital, so perhaps you can understand how frustrating it is for me to receive literally dozens of emails each day from internet marketers – all with tempting offers (even though I am fully aware that most of it is spam).

If there was just one with a genuine auto-pilot offer that is quick and easy for me to initiate and that WON’T cost me money (I refuse to pay anything up front because I simply cannot afford it) and that will still bring me in a few extra dollars, I would be overjoyed and more than willing to write letters of recommendation to anyone you care to nominate – or do anything else I can to repay your goodwill.

If you ARE genuine and able to help me, please send an email direct to me at my personal email address (see above) marked “ATTN. (NAME REMOVED FOR PRIVACY)” in the subject line and I promise to respond. Otherwise, please don’t bother me again.”

So here’s what I wrote back:

There Is No Magic Formula To Get Rich Quick

Hi (name removed for privacy),

There is no such thing as an autopilot system that you can just implement in a day, not study or learn anything new, and get rich immediately and forever. It’s kind of ridiculous if you think about it.

For me personally, it took me 4 months of work before I even made my first sale online. But after 9 months, I had my first $1,000 month, and it’s just grown from there. There is no secret system – I worked my ass off to make that happen. Yes, there are system and ways you can automate things – but you can’t automate everything.

And you certainly can’t go into it thinking you’re not going to study or learn anything or work hard and think you’re going to succeed.. that’s not how you get rich quick – that’s how you get broker faster.

If you really want to get rich online, or IN ANY BUSINESS, you have to be prepared to learn, invest in yourself, make mistakes (because you’ll make plenty), and have the persistence and courage to keep going no matter what happens.

When you think about it, asking for an automated system that you can set up one time and be rich forever is like trying to have a wonderful relationship with a woman and get a marriage that lasts forever – and all you want to do is show up for the first date and “have the system do everything else.”

Some things in life you actually have to figure out for yourself – like how to get rich. Mentors, teachers and coaches are just there to make it easier and help you avoid a lot of the mistakes that they made. But to think you won’t make ANY mistakes – well, that could just be the biggest mistake of all.

To your success,
