Is There Such A Thing As Legitimate Easy Money



Is There Such a​ Thing As Legitimate Easy Money?
We as​ humans have always been fascinated with the​ prospect of​ easy money .​
That is​ why places like Las Vegas and Atlantic City are such booming metropolises making billions of​ dollars per year on​ gambling earnings .​
People also religiously buy lotto tickets hoping to​ hit the​ big jackpot and instantly become wealthy enough to​ never have to​ work again .​
Back 150 years ago it​ was the​ gold rush which had the​ similar lure of​ striking it​ rich .​
Only then it​ was gold instead of​ greenbacks .​
So the​ question remains,​ is​ there such a​ thing as​ legitimate easy money?
The fast answer is​ that there certainly is! I​ mean there are countless examples of​ instant winners of​ the​ numerous lotteries,​ and sweepstakes,​ and raffles,​ and slot machine jackpots right? There are also scores of​ athletes who were fortunate enough to​ have been borne 7 feet tall with blazing speed that can play which ever sport on​ the​ professional level that they want to​ .​
Theirs is​ easy money,​ isn’t it? There are also examples of​ people who came up with,​ or​ maybe even more correct,​ stumbled upon the​ right thing at​ the​ right time and made millions off it .​
It wasn’t hard for them was it?
Well yes and no (just like every answer in​ the​ entire world)! Yes on​ the​ front end this money was easy but shouldn’t we​ consider the​ back end as​ well .​
What I​ am referring to​ is​ the​ indirect costs of​ becoming an​ instant millionaire with easy money .​
You see if​ you look at​ the​ lives of​ the​ people used in​ my examples you might find (it is​ my contention that you will find) that this money didn’t come so easily afterall .​
No they paid for it​ dearly with broken relationships,​ annoying public scrutiny,​ poor decisions and stewardship,​ and the​ realization the​ money isn’t what makes a​ satisfactory life .​
It is​ sad but true that many of​ these people end up committing suicide because they can’t deal with these costs.
So might I​ suggest that money doesn’t come as​ easy money like it​ might seem .​
Either way you look at​ it,​ with money comes risk in​ equal measure .​
You can cite those who have sacrificed much including family and friends to​ earn it​ on​ the​ front end or​ you can look at​ those who sacrificed much including family and friends to​ have it​ on​ the​ back end .​
I​ don’t care—if that’s easy,​ I​ want mine to​ come the​ good old fashioned way with hard work and proper perspective.
