The 1 Thing You Must Have That Will Make You Rich

In my last Driving with John Chow episode, I talked about two success habits that will make you rich. One of those habits was successful people read a lot, and I recommended Matt Lloyd’s new book, Limitless, as a book to start reading. The book is available for free (you pay shipping) until 11:59PM EST March 10.

Shortly after making that post, I started getting emails from people asking me for a copy of the book, and to pay for the shipping! Now, I am not all surprised by this, and I am in fact pleased by it because it leads into this new Driving with John Chow episode.

On this episode of Driving with John Chow, I talk about one big that will keep you failing, and one thing that will make you rich. Which one do you have? Enjoy the rant!

    WoW!!! After watching your video,I realized you have been driving around in my backyard!!
    Irvine ,Newport thru Costa Mesa. I have seen you all over the net throughout my years of seeking the IM lifestyle and I hate to admit that in your video you had described me to the “T”.

    Although, I do have the desire and motivation to succeed,there are just times when things happen that prevent me from progre$$ing. I may have the money to invest one week, the next week I’m worrying if I will have a dollar in my pocket. So, for me it’s all timing.I either have the money to get going and stay focused or I need to work harder(construction) just to make ends meet. I wont quit and Someday I’ll get there!!! I’m always driving and working in Irvine and Costa Mesa, hopefully one day I can run into you and meet you. P.S. Should have started following you many years ago,maybe I would have been successful by now!
    Take care,
    Steve C

    The habit of being consistent?

    It’s an entitlement attitude and its rampant in this country! Why can’t I have everything for free and you pay for it for me! After all I don’t have money and you do right? So I’ll just kick back here and remain poor and just ask for everything for free. All I really have to do is campaign for the right people for president and I can continue my ride on the gravy train of poverty. And then every day I’ll complain about my situation and continue to do nothing to change it! So can you pay for my shipping for me cos I’ve already spent my SSI check on tending to myself. After all, I need it.

    Amazon has a flat rate $3.99 for shipping and handling, and even that generates a bit of profit for most booksellers.

    My opinion is that if you’re advertising a “free” book, it should be free. If you tell people you have a “free” book that will actually cost them $9.95 for “shipping and handling” (two and a half times what Amazon lets its independent dealers charge), you’re playing games.

    I expect most people have figured this out already, and the game is to find those who have not.

    1. John Chow says:

      Has it ever occurred to you that the reason Amazon gets $3.99 shipping is because they ship a million books a day? Go to your local post office and ask them how much it will cost YOU to ship one book across the country.

        Don’t mess with John Chow! lol

      2. DW says:

        Books are shipped with a special “Media Mail” rate, which charges strictly by weight and not by distance: http://pe.usps.com/text/dmm300/Notice123.htm#3066433

        The $3.99 charge is what Amazon allows its independent dealers (who are doing their own shipping, not “fulfilled by Amazon”) to charge. In order to rack up $9.95 in shipping charges, Matt Lloyd’s book would have to weigh 15 pounds. I’m guessing it’s a little lighter than that.

        The $3.99 rate will handle a book up to 3 pounds “cross country.”

        1. John Chow says:

          Then add the cost of the envelope and someone to address it and take it to the post office (that’s the handling part of the shipping and handling). Matt is not Amazon. He doesn’t have a team that just does shipping. He has to hire an extra person to do it. The first run is now sold out, so I guess there’s enough people out there who doesn’t mind the shipping rate.

    Thanks for a cool video, so true and onpoint

  8. Great video! This is “dead on the money” when it comes to talking about what is needed to get ahead and achieve goals. No desire —->>>> no action —->>>> no results. I hear ya when you were talking about people wanting you to pay for shipping as well…..one needs to give something in order to get something.
