How to Become Rich and Famous in Life

Last week, I asked this question on Quora.com – How Can I Become Rich and Famous in Life?

I receive different answers, but my favorite answer was the one byRob Rouse Jr: which goes like this.

Made quite a bit of money, read many books on finance.

Okay, by no means am I rich and famous, but I do feel as though I’ve read enough books and information on wealth and fame that I have a good understanding of how these people got to where they are. Here are the steps you need to take:

  1. Find something that you love to do. You need to really dig deep for this one, as it can be really hard to know yourself enough to find something to dedicate a good portion of your life to. Bill Gates chose computers and software to obsess over, Will Ferrell chose comedy, and Henry Ford chose automobiles. You need to find something that you’ll be able to obsess over.
  2. Do it everyday of your life, reach 10,000 hours with it. This is also very challenging. They say that you need to dedicate 10,000 hours onto a subject to be able to become a master at it. If what you’re going to obsess over is something extremely hard, then you’re going to want to go to college for it. Your dreams won’t always work out, but if you dedicate your 10,000 hours you’ll be many steps ahead another person with the same aspirations.
  3. Find a way to make money with it. If you chose basketball to obsess over, then maybe your ultimate goal is to make it to the NBA. If that falls through, which there’s a good chance it will, then become a master at basketball by putting your time in and host camps across the country and make money through it, or you could start your own YouTube channel regarding nothing but basketball, or you could start your own AAU tournaments to host around the country. You’ll be able to find ways to make money with whatever you love to do. Make money from it and you’ll find happiness and be able to go even farther.
  4. Continue with it, always upscale, and never quit. If you’re trying to start a business, instead of taking most of your profits in the first few years and spending it on tangibles, you should be investing just about every penny you can into making your business even bigger and better. You should not quit once, and never take breaks, as it will prohibit you from reaching your potential.
  5. Start with Media, make a YouTube Channel, start a blog, write a book, get in a movie, get on TV, get in the Newspaper, get your name out there.Your goal is to become famous as well, right? That’s actually much harder than becoming rich, but it’s possible if you do whatever you can to constantly get your name out there.

If you follow this process to a tee, and obviously do a little bit more than I mentioned, then you shouldn’t fail. Good luck!
