You would think that with almost everyone being interested in getting into a relationship; getting out of a relationship; getting your ex back; or getting back at your ex, that the subject of relationships would be the most widely read subject in the world. After all, we always hear that those on the inside want to get out and those on the outside want to get in, but if this is what you have always believed, you'd be wrong.
Curiosity made me do some poking around. Relationship articles don't even come in a close second. The most widely read articles or products sold are those promoting get-rich-quick schemes involving little skill, little effort, and no risk.
The ads or articles imply that they have a secret technique that no one else knows about and by purchasing their CD or book, you can become a bazillionaire in no time at all. All you have to do is follow their time-proven techniques which they willingly share with you in their CD or book, and success will be yours. Some of the ads or articles stop just short of saying that you can make all this money while you sleep.
That isn't to say that you can't make a lot of money quickly, but more than likely, those who do make a lot of money in very little time, are the ones who are willing to accept very high levels of risk. These are the people who invest heavily in the stock market, buy undeveloped properties or properties in bad neighborhoods, or who lay down all their money on the turn of a card or roll of the dice in a casino.
Look at all the people who give out all kinds of personal information online with the promise of getting a fortune or saving a fortune. Fill out this form and we will get you a better mortgage rate, a better car payment rate, a better anything rate. But after telling them your age, where you live, how much money you're spending a month and what your yearly income is, do you hear from them again? It's doubtful unless they have something to sell you. Meanwhile, they are now in possession of a lot of useful information about you and it hasn't cost them a cent.
It doesn't seem to matter what part of the world you live in or what your religious beliefs are, the lure of getting rich quickly without having to work for it, appeals to people in a way that other things do not.
A man who was always struggling to make ends meet was once asked why he spent two dollars every week on the lottery. Why didn't he just save the two dollars each week and at the end of the year, take his wife out to dinner with the $104.00 that he had saved? He answered, "When I die, I'm going to ask God why He didn't make me rich and I don't want to hear Him say that He gave me the opportunity to get rich by giving me the lottery and I didn't want to spend two dollars a week to play it."
So, if you have a product to sell or you want to lure people into investing in a scheme, keep in mind that you will get the most results by telling them that they can get rich overnight with no investment, no risk, no skills, and no experience. And it wouldn't surprise me in the least if this article, on the basis of its title, "Get Rich Quick" isn't the most read of all the articles I've ever written for publication.
