How Long Will It Take To Create Wealth?
Are you familiar with the Law of the Farm? The farmer has to ① Prepare the field, ② Plant the seeds, ③ Nourish the soil, seeds, plants ④ Provide protection to the plants ④ Watch over the crops regularly and ⑤ Harvest only when the crop is ready. The farmer cannot plant the seeds one day and expect to harvest it the next day! He is also aware that each stage requires different activities and the time for each stage depends on the crop. Similarly in creating wealth, there are stages to it, each stage requires different activities and the time for each stage depends on the wealth you are creating. THE STAGE PRINCIPLE — Wealth is best built in stages; it is not built in a moment or overnight What are these stages? I - PREPARATION Planning, start with your job, budgeting, saving, being frugal, investing in your own learning and getting out of debt. II - SINGULARITY Increasing income, engaging in a talent search to discover your singularity, deciding about direction, establishing your Self as a Wealth Creator and access the right states. III - COLLABORATIONS Developing your integrity to your vision, living your principles, enjoy adding value in your area of competence and building your team. IV - BUSINESS LAUNCH Creating your business plan, finding your business partners, managing risk, seeing and seizing opportunities, developing your team, branding, marketing, selling and living your principles. V - DEVELOPMENT Specifying your supply line, expanding business and colleagues, continuing to develop your financial intelligence, developing multiple sources of income, persisting patiently and staying the course.

Having the right competencies for the stages accelerates the execution of each stage.

To enjoy a bountiful harvest, the farmer has to prepare, plant, nourish, protect, watch over and then harvest. Creating Wealth requires me to be mindful of the stages too.
