I’ve been reading the Bernard Cornwall books about vikings. And I bloody love em.
I’m already on book four of the series. I think there’s seven in total and I’m powering through them at a rate of knots.
I can really imagine what it would have been like to live when the vikings were raiding. In a word… brutal.
If you were a warrior and you wanted something then you took it. If the person you were taking it from didn’t want you to take it, then you’d fight and whoever hacked off the other persons head first won.
Okay, hacking off heads is probably not strictly true (although it definitely happened), but they’d fight to the death over the most trivial things.
How did you get rich?
You went and stole other peoples gold and silver, you pillaged towns and assuming you were stronger… took what you want.
Which means if you had ten pounds of gold and wanted twenty, you could literally go and double it overnight.
And for some reason folks still think you can do this online!
They think you can just walk on out onto the internet and take money from people. Start with $1 and have grabbed $500 by the end of the week.
Do you go and pillage your neighbours?
Of course not.
Then why the heck would you be able to do the same online!
You can’t start with $1 and turn it into $500 by the end of the week unless you literally go and steal it.
But I’m not blaming you for thinking this, if you ever have.
I’m blaming the a-holes who sell products which perpetuate this myth.
Those products are designed for people who are either too lazy to do any work or are desperate. And it’s pretty low thing to do to either of them.
The truth is that you can turn $1 into $500 online with hard work and a proper plan. You just can’t do it in a week.
So next time you see a product claiming to be able to make you rich quickly without you having to do anything and only needing a dollar to start, you know it’s a bunch of bulls**t.
The only person who’s going to be making money from it is the guy selling it.
