The foundation for every personal pursuit in life is to invest in yourself. It can take years. How you can do it:
A good supply of ideas is the first pillar of wealth building.
Once you have ideas, you want to put your ideas to work. If you do that, you can start creating value. When we create value, we generate income.

Once you've acquired some wealth, you want to protect that from external factors.
You want to keep your assets safe from legal institutions and ensure you don't pay more tax than required. You will have lawyers and accountants to take care of these items.
At some point, you've acquired enough wealth so that you're only moving around your resources. You will generate value and cash by selling one stock and buying another, or selling land and buying a cash-generating asset.
Successful investors put their wealth to work so that it will not only benefit themselves, but will have an impact on the economy, jobs, and lives of other people.
