One thing that modern day human beings seem to lack is patience. Whether this is due to a lack of time to actually focus on things and complete them or whether it is because in recent years, making has come to depend on getting jobs done quickly such as via the use of machines is unknown. However, when it comes to money, there seems to be no shortage of “get rich quick schemes” in the same way there is never any shortage of “lose weight quick schemes” or “grow your hair quick” schemes. Whatever the reason for mankind’s obsession with speed, there are a number of reasons why get rich quick schemes fail.
Business oriented scams and cons
Businesses that advertise products or services that promise to make you get rich quick are often simply cons or scams. The businesses that organize these scams are, as the name suggests, businesses. They will make their money from deceiving people. In essence, the only people that get rich from get rich quick businesses are the businesses themselves. If you see an ad that promises you a thousand dollars an hour by working from home, there is a good chance that it will turn out to be a con or a scam, and must avoid them if they seem too good to be true.
A lack of planning, thought and caution
Some people come up with their own plans and schemes to get rich quick, but they often fail. This can be due to a lack of planning, thought and caution which eventually results in a money making plan with a lack of structure and improper functionality which eventually results in the plan faltering and failing. This is commonly seen in new businesses that form or new shops that open and subsequently close again after a few months of poor performance.
All eggs in one basket
It is always important to have a back-up plan in the event that the main plan fails. However, get rich quick schemes often do not have a back-up plan at all. This means that the individual involved in the get rich quick scheme will basically have all of their eggs in one basket. If the plan fails, they lose everything. This can be very tedious and stressful, especially when you had everything wagering on its success. People that have all of their eggs in one basket often suffer the consequences when things start to look bad.
Get rich quick schemes very rarely work. Making money, especially in large amounts that would be considered “rich”, take plenty of time and effort. Your funds and finances will develop over time if you take steps to allow them to do so but get rich quick schemes are often the source of failure. They can fail due to scams or cons, they can fail due to a lack of planning, thought and caution and they can even fail if all of the eggs are in a single basket and no back-up plan is made.
