Part 4: Mediocrity—The Slowlane Roadmap
The Slowlane is chosen by those who want to be smarter. They educate themselves financially, and they know that if they save enough money every month, they will finally get rich.
The problem here is that they will get rich when they are very old, and in fact, it may never happen due to many random events that may occur on the way.
Taking this path means that you will work a lot—without much time for your family or entertainment—with the hope that finally, you will get what you want sometime in the far future. This is not the best way to live, because we are young only once, and it’s not wise to trade our best period of life for the hope of a better life in the future.
Beware of financial gurus who teach how to get rich but did not use the same strategy to get rich themselves. Very often those financial gurus get rich only because they teach how to get rich. Also, many people don’t really understand the mechanics of getting rich, yet they perceive themselves as experts.
