The lie: “Work hard so you’ll be rich” haha it’s true that hard works pays off but does it really pay off? Yes, it does!
Your favourite motivational speaker might at a point emphasize the need of working hard in your field of speciality so you will be ahead of your colleagues. There are limitations to hard work, someone once said if it’s by hard work “barrow pushers should be richer people on earth.”
If Dangote net worth grew by #500 million in 2019 should we say that he put in work 1,000,000 times more than people who earn #5,000,000 in a year?

The answer is no! Of a truth, there is hard work but there is also room for smart work. Growing up, I understand hard work is not necessarily the long hours of labour you put in getting a job done, no, it is not, but it is being focused and putting in the required effort to achieving/executing a project.
The biggest lie you were told while growing up only thought me how to work hard, this was the conventional way of becoming somebody in life, but never “thought me how to invest early.” This is a smart way of making my money work for me.
Stop trying to figure everything out, in the name of working hard. If you really want to get rich, you need to work smart or smarter, you can most times get this from the wisdom of others and experience. Know when to work hard, be street smart and book smart.
“Nothing is new under the heavens”
There is no idea you want to execute that someone has not tried, leverage on what other people have done, this is the shortcode you need in life.
Thank you for reading, kindly bear your mind out on the biggest lie you were told while growing up. Kindly share.
