The Lazy Mans Way To Riches
The title of this article also happens to be the title of one of the greatest ads of all time, written by a man named Joe Karbo.
Joe was was one of the foremost copy-writers, headline writers and direct response experts of all time.
Joe established precedents, and built the foundation for today's direct response industry--becoming a self made millionaire in the process.
Joe's ads for the "Lazy Man" ran for years in every major newspaper and magazine in the United States... and most large foreign papers as well. The ads themselves became famous. The ads were...and still are studied, examined, dissected, and used as models for direct response marketing and selling throughout the world.
He reveals all of his secrets in "The Lazy Man's Way To Riches," a classic book that is Joe's philosophy on life and how to live it richly, successfully, lovingly, joyously and... lazily.
"The Lazy Man's Way To Riches," is the largest selling...self published book in the world...NEVER in a bookstore...
There's only one problem. There's no such thing as a "lazy man's way to riches!" Yes, the book itself does exist. And it was a runaway success. However, short of winning the lottery or inheriting a fortune, there is no such thing as a lazy man's way to riches!
All of the successful people I know are far from lazy. In fact, some of the most successful people I know work the longest hours.
Take me for instance. Most mornings I get up at six o'clock, because I can't wait to get started. And most nights, I don't get offline until around 10 or 11:00.
Now by my calculations, those are 16 or 17 hour hour work days. But it doesn't seem like work to me at all, because I'm doing what I love. And that's the whole point! I'm not putting in those hours because I have to, I'm doing it because I want to.
Why? Because I live by a certain philosophy which is:
"Any success you achieve will be in direct proportion to your desire and determination. The more desire and determination you have, the greater will be your success."
The above philosophy (which I coined, by the way), keeps me focused and hungry. Oh sure, I could work an hour or two on my computer every day and goof off the rest of the time. And do you know what would happen to my earnings? They would plummet--as would the earnings of most of my collegues, if they started playing more than working.
Don't get me wrong. I still enjoy life. I take vacations twice a year. I drive a nice luxury car. I have a beautiful home.
But I did not get those things from being lazy. And the majority of successful people did not get to the top by being lazy either.
So contrary to popular belief, you can get rich, but you do have to work at it!

Bring on the Boosters!
Nobody becomes a success alone, period. There is no such person who is "self made." I know this because I have regularly involved myself with some of America's most successful people and as I listen to their stories I realize that all of them have had what I call their own "booster club."

Liberating Success Lessons from Singing - If It Is Rubbish, It Is Rubbish; If It Is Not, It is Not
Reggie Yates, a pop song presenter, was singing on 7th March 2005 at the UK Fame Academy for Comic Relief a charity that helps people in Africa and the UK. He is probably the worst singer in the group but has managed to survive to the last stages of the competition.
Very few of us can pick up a complex task and ace it the first time we try it. Take typing. In all the years I taught it, I never had a single student sit down at the keyboard and type 60-70 words a minute their first time.

Vacation Your Way to Success!
All work and no play makes Johnny a dull boy they say. It also makes you unsuccessful. The fact is that a well placed vacation can do wonders for every area of your life. I am thinking about this because I am about to go sit on the beach for a few weeks! So in this busy world, where we are driven to be producing all the time, it is good to be reminded that a break is sometimes the best thing to move us forward in the long run.

For Meeting Planners: Organizing Your Office for Less Stress and More Profit
If you discovered your speaking career depended on how organized your office was, your reaction could range from complete composure to sheer terror. Even the most successful professional speakers sometimes utter, "Some day I'm really going to get organized," but purging files, organizing computer files, tackling piles of unread journals, or learning a new software program (even one that will help you get organized!), usually gets pushed to the bottom of your list of priorities while you handle today's crisis.
The REAL Secret to Success
I used to see a chiropractor who handed out a little leaflet entitled "Dr. Hickman's Guide to Success in Business." It was very nice, had his picture on the front and was professionally printed. On the inside it said, "Get a job and go to work every morning."
