People believe that money makes the world go round. This is just one of the many reasons the poor want to be rich, the rich want to stay rich,  and people will do whatever they can to get a few extra bucks in their bank accounts. Sure, having a job that pays well will play a part in how much money you have, but there is actually a lot more you can be doing to increase your wealth and success.

Wishing and hoping is not going to get you rich. You have to set S.M.A.R.T. goals (above), and put your plan into action before you will see any money coming in. If possible, set daily, weekly and monthly goals that are realistic and ensure that you do everything you said you would do that will help you get closer to reaching your goal.

2. Be your own cheerleader.

When setting a goal and working to achieve it, it is always nice to have someone on your side to cheer you on. Many people will have a few people on their team who will tell them they are doing a good job or say a few encouraging words, but this is not something you will have all of the time. It is up to you to be your own cheerleader and keep yourself motivated enough to reach your goal.

3. Increase your knowledge.

When trying to get rich, you will want be constantly increasing your knowledge. Read books, watch documentaries, do whatever you can to learn more and gain knowledge. Not only will you be smarter, but you will also increase the number of job opportunities because of everything you know.

4. Learn to adapt.

People are afraid of change, but if you want to be successful and make money, you have to learn to adapt and deal with these changes whenever they happen. If outside factors make things difficult from time to time, staying committed to reaching your goals in order to make money - despite what comes at you - is necessary.

5. Use your talents.

There are a lot of talented people in the world, and you may be one of them. Is there something that you are really good at that no one else knows how to do or at least not as well as you? Perfect! Use this talent, and any others you may have, to create a business or even a side job that will increase your income.

6. Take credit for the good and the bad.

If you fail to get rich or find that you are having a hard time getting there, you may be tempted to

make excuses instead of accepting the bad. Of course, when something good happens you'll want to take credit for it, but you also need to do the same with the bad. The success you experience will be that much greater because you have worked past your failures and still managed to reach your goals.

7. Invest.

One of the best things you can do to increase your wealth and get rich is invest. Whether you decide to put money into real estate, stocks, or something else, you will be able to make money without doing too much work. This is perfect because when you invest in certain things you don't need a lot of money and you can do this even if you don't have a lot of spare time on your hands or are busy with work and your family.

8. Limit your time.

People enjoy a variety of fun, recreational activities, such as watching TV, playing video games, or having a night out on the town with friends. These things are fun, but you should limit how often you do them because they are not earning you money and they are taking away from time that you could be using to make some.

9. Listen.

A lot of people fail to listen to what they are being told and this is what keeps them from reaching their goals. If there is someone in your life who is rich and successful, ask them for advice. But you will want to listen to what they tell you. With them being where you want to be, they could really help you.
