Tycoon Sudhir shares 11 tips to build wealth and become rich

Setting goals is an essential first step in building wealth. When you have a clear vision of what you want to achieve, you can create a plan that will help you get rich, Billionaire Sudhir Ruparelia says.

The City tycoon goes on further to advise people to start by defining financial goals, such as saving for retirement, buying a home, or paying off debt. Be specific about the amount of money you need to achieve each goal and the time frame in which you hope to achieve it.

“The more money you earn, the faster you’ll be able to achieve your goal of getting rich. Boosting your earnings potential today helps to build a virtuous circle of earning more, investing more, and getting closer to your goals. One way to boost your income is by looking to progress from your current position, or even to consider a career change that better values your skills and competencies,” Sudhir says.

Building wealth is a goal that many people aspire to, but it can often seem like an overwhelming task. It takes time, effort, and discipline to be successful with this goal, so don’t be lured by get-rich-quick schemes and too-good-to-be-true opportunities that can send you down a dangerous path.

Wealth-building is a process that generally takes time. Although the idea of becoming an overnight millionaire is appealing to many, the only real way to get rich overnight is via speculation, an inheritance, or a lottery win.

Building wealth may be a far-off thought for many of those struggling with medical debt, student loans, rising rent prices, and inflation. However, knowing how families can grow wealth is key to understanding why so many families are struggling to build wealth in the first place.

Forget social media influencers and their dubious ‘get-rich-quick’ schemes, there are no shortcuts, or secrets, to building wealth. Instead, the path to getting rich involves sticking to the simple rule of spending less than you earn if possible while saving and investing as much money as you can.

Below are 11 Tips Sudhir says are a benchmark to creating wealth and become filthy rich

Set Goals and Develop a Plan

Setting goals is an essential first step in building wealth. When you have a clear vision of what you want to achieve, you can create a plan that will help you get there. Start by defining your financial goals, such as saving for retirement, buying a home, or paying off debt. Be specific about the amount of money you need to achieve each goal and the time frame in which you hope to achieve it.

Deal with debt

Managed correctly, not all debt is bad. But if you’re planning to get rich, it’s worth bearing in mind that high-interest debt, for example, that is generated when credit and store cards are only partially paid off each month, presents a barrier to achieving this dream.

Understand the net worth

Net worth represents the value of your assets after excluding your debts. Knowing your net worth can help you determine your next steps toward building wealth. You can calculate your net worth by subtracting the dollar amount of your debts from the dollar value of your assets. If the total asset value exceeds the total debts, you have a positive net worth. But if the total debts exceed the total asset value, you have a negative net worth.

Earn Money

This step may seem elementary but is the most fundamental one for those who are just starting out. You’ve probably seen charts showing that a small amount of money regularly saved and allowed to compound over time eventually can grow into a substantial sum

Start investing now

If we’re talking about growing wealth, it’s not usually enough just to save money in an account. To get rich, you need to make your money work harder. For most people, the way to do this is by investing in the stock market.

Save money automatically

Automating your savings can be a simple way to build wealth. You could consider setting up regular transfers from a checking account to a high-yield savings account or diverting some of each paycheck to a savings account.

Protect Your Assets

You’ve worked hard to earn your money and grow your wealth. The worst thing could be to lose it all due to a sudden tragedy or unforeseen event. Insurance is a key piece of building your wealth because it provides protection from these and other hazards.

Diversify your portfolio

There’s no such thing as risk-free investing. But with the help of tactics such as diversification, where investors spread their holdings across a range of asset types including shares, bonds, and cash, many of the risk factors can be mitigated, hopefully smoothing a path toward financial success.

Boost your income

The more money you earn, the faster you’ll be able to achieve your goal of getting rich. Boosting your earnings potential today helps to build a virtuous circle of earning more, investing more, and getting closer to your goals. One way to boost your income is by looking to progress from your current position, or even to consider a career change that better values your skills and competencies.

Paying Attention to The Little Things

Ultimately, the majority of people who succeed at growing wealth don’t do it because they hit the lottery or got lucky with one big investment or business deal. They succeed because they took the time and care to get the little things right, and they did that over and over and over again. People who become wealthy nail the fundamentals and they practice those good habits consistently.

Fear of God

There is no way you will be rich and keep your riches if you don’t fear God. It is important to know that Fear of God is the beginning of Wisdom. Majority of the rich people i know are God-fearing people. They may not be very religious but they are dedicated to God. Billionaires like Sudhir have this secret.
